Squash Aplenty!

Yes, it’s that time of year again–the Fresh Start Farmers are beginning to harvest myriad varieties of squashes: butternut, acorn, delicata, spaghetti, carnival…even some decorative pumpkins! Each with its own unique texture and flavor profiles, there’s a squash for everyone! 

You can look forward this week to another round of delicious, fresh-baked bread from the Crust and Crumb Bakery in Concord! Flavors include maple pecan, basil pesto, and multigrain. We also have a new sweet treat in stock from Echo Farm in Hinsdale, NH. Scroll down to read about this week’s featured products. 

Join the Fall FarmShare

The Fall FarmShare starts immediately following the summer share, so you won’t miss a week of fresh, local food. Starting the week of October 9th and ending the week of Thanksgiving, this share is perfect for enjoying the end of season staples as well as storage crops and roasting vegetables that you can keep into the winter months. 

 We hope you’ll join us into the fall to enjoy more fresh, healthy, and local food with a mission!

Smoked Chili Cheddar, Grafton Village 

Grafton’s Smoked Chili Cheddar is a rich cheese with no shortage of flavor. It is infused with habañero, jalapeño and pasilla peppers for the right balance of chili flavor and spice. The cheese is then cold-smoked over maple and hardwood chips, adding a woodsy depth to balance its bright spicy flavors. The dominating aromas of smoke and chili are grounded by a creamy texture and buttery flavors in this cheese.

Smoked Chili Cheddar is very meltable; use it to add smoky spice to burgers, poutine or grilled cheese sandwiches.


Protein Items
