Greetings from Fresh Start Farms!

This week we’re welcoming a new product line from Mola Foods! Founder, LaFortune Jeannette Djabea, is a champion of African cuisine and creates seasonings, sauces, chips, and marinades from tastes and flavors from around the world right here in Nashua, NH. Try out her spice blends and plantain chips! 

Concord Farmers bring FarmShares to their Community!

Last week, the Concord Fresh Start farmers assembled 60 boxes of fresh vegetables from their farms and distributed them to friends and family in their community. Along with the vegetables, the boxes included farm fresh eggs that were donated from local egg farms and gleaned by the Merrimack Conservation Commission. 

The more experienced Dunbarton Fresh Start Farmers participate in the USDA Senior Share program and distribute over 300 shares to seniors in need of fresh food during the summer. The farmers are responsible for managing the assembly, distribution, and invoicing for the shares. The Concord Fresh Start Farmers have not yet managed their own farm share distribution, so the community share acted as an excellent training opportunity for the farmers to prepare to participate in the Senior Share program as well as get lots of delicious, fresh, and local food to the community!

Fall FarmShares are almost sold out!

We only have a few spots left for the 12-week fall FarmShare starting August 22nd, so be sure to secure your peak season veggies! As a summer FarmShare member, a spot has been saved for you until the end of the week, so be sure to sign up!

Important Member Info

Low Share Value Alert

When you customize your share, make sure to look out for a box value alert in your cart. If the total value of the products in your cart is less than the value of your share ($28 or $40), you will see an alert indicating that you may add products without incurring an additional charge. Unused value does not roll over into extras or future weeks, so we want to make sure you get your full value each box!

Please return boxes & insulated liners!

We are starting to use insulated liners to keep your food cool in your shares to make sure your veggies are at the highest quality when you receive them. We want to make sure to limit any waste and packaging (and each of these liners costs $3) so please make sure to leave the silver insulated liner at your pick-up site or return it to your site/delivery driver. Please return any boxes as well.  Thank you!

Grilled Ratatouille Tartines

When it’s too hot to stand over a pot of ratatouille on the stove, make these grilled ratatouille tartines instead! 

They’re a delicious snack – but they’re hearty enough to double as a light dinner.
