Happy 4th of July!

It’s hard to beleive that July is already here! Summer is creatinly in full swing and we hope you have been surviving the thunderstorms and heavy rain (not to mention the humidity!).  We wish you and your families a wonderful Independence Day. We too are grateful for the opportunity to rest and reflect on our many blessings as Americans.

That being said, we will be taking Monday, July 3rd off in observance of Independence Day. This will not affect FarmShare deliveries, but you can expect the following changes: You will receive your customization email today, Friday 6/30, and will have until Monday 7/3 at midnight to customize.  During the holiday week, you may see some substitutions in your FarmShare since the amounts of crops available will be estimated on Friday and might be off a bit by the harvest on Tuesday. We appreciate your flexibility and understanding.

NASAP team member Emma has the Fresh Start Farm Stand in Boscawen up and running! It looks amazing–well done Emma! If you are looking for for more fresh veggies and local goodies to stock up on for the holiday, you should definitely pay it a visit.

of the Week

Bacon Pea Salad

“When you think pea salad, you might envision a heavy, mayonnaise-based side dish. Those are great in their own right, but we decided to lighten things up a bit for our extra springy version. This one is fresh and crunchy—thanks to radishes and red (or sub green!) cabbage—and has the most addicting bacon vinaigrette you might just be tempted to pour over everything.” -Delish Recipes
