Hari's FlowerShare!

Did you know that Fresh Start Farmer Harimaya grows beautiful flowers and sells them throughout the summer? She needs your help to be able to make this possible: if you pick-up your FarmShare at any one of our pick-up sites, then you are eligible to sign up for her flower share! (We are sorry that home delivery is not currently an option). 

During this 9-week share from July 16th – September 16th, you’ll get a gorgeous, unique arrangement of fresh-picked flowers from Hari’s plot in Boscawen. Look forward to zinnias, sunflowers, cosmos, amaranth, celosia, dahlias, ranunculus, snapdragons, lilies, strawflowers, marigolds, and more! Bring the beauty of the flower garden home!

Crust & Crumb Bread this Week!

We will be ordering bread from the Crust & Crumb Bakery in Concord this week! It will be available *ONCE* each month during the Summer FarmShare, so make sure to keep an eye out for when it is available. This week’s flavors are: Honey Oat, Basil Pesto, and Citrus Wheatberry!

*Important Update Regarding Local Fruit*

As many of you may have already heard, NH’s fruit crop–especially stone fruits–are largely wiped out due to the sub zero temperatures in February, followed by the frost in mid-May which damaged fruits’ blossoms. This is a huge blow to New Hampshire and New England farm ecosystems!  That being said, there will be even less fruit available in your FarmShares this season. We are equally saddened by this news and will do our best to get fruit when it is available. We thank you for your understanding and hope that NE farmers and the ecosystem are able to recover.

Queso Fresco from Champlain Valley Creamery

This creamery is certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF) and they strive to make rich, delicious cheeses, all of which are made from the 100% grass-fed organic Jersey milk of Severy Farm in Cornwall, Vermont.

Protein Items

Red’s Best Pollock–Back in stock!

Atlantic pollock is firm white fish with a sweet, delicate flavor profile that is less flaky than cod or haddock lending itself as a perfect option for stews, cioppino and chowders. Substitute pollock for recipes calling for cod, hake or haddock. Very low in saturated fat, Atlantic pollock is a very good source of protein, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and selenium. Plus, it’s excellent protein source for low carb paleo and keto diets.


Did you know that U.S. wild-caught pollock can be fished from Maine to Virginia, and  is landed year-round with peaks from November through January? Check out Red’s Best website to learn more about their local fish aggregation business!
