Greetings from Fresh Start Farms!

It’s hard to believe we are already at week 11 of the 12-week Summer FarmShare! Thank you so much for supporting the new American farmers of Fresh Start Farms this season. 

The Fall FarmShare starts immediately following the summer share, so you won’t miss a week of fresh, local food. The end of August through September is the height of the harvest season, so you’ll see lots of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, corn and so much more! Towards the end of the 12-week share, storage crops begin and you’ll get lots of great roasting vegetables that can store into the winter months. We hope you’ll join us into the fall to enjoy more fresh, healthy, and local food with a mission! Shares are almost sold out, so don’t wait!


If you’re already signed up for the Fall Share, don’t forget to sign up for your add-on shares! Lots of local & farm-fresh items to choose from like eggs, fruit, bread, mushrooms, corn, chicken, beef, milk, and pantry item! Sign up here.

Pantry Items

New items!

Welcoming 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.

LaFortune’s love of food began at age 11 when she started cooking for the whole family. The Cameroonian blend is from her own heritage and is an authentic ancient tribal recipe that has survived being passed from mother to daughter. “I hope to create awareness about a revolutionary way of adding spiced into cooking and bringing life to dishes.” LaFortune states as the Mola’s mission.

Try out Mola’s Senegalese, Moroccan, Ethiopian, Jamaican, Kenyan, and Cameroonian spice blends and their Plantain Chips! The products are low or no salt and are vegan, non-GMO, and contain no additives or preservatives.


Dairy Items

Featured Cheese

With a buttery aroma and a feathery finish, this mozzarella is so good you’ll want to eat it all before you get home.

Narragansett Creamery makes award-winning artisan cheeses in Providence, Rhode Island. They use local milk, kind bacteria, vegetable-based rennet, salt, and nothing else. They support fair-trade and local ingredients and do not use milk with growth hormones.

It’s the hint of tart apple, the honeyed aftertaste, and the firm, flaky texture that makes VT Farmstead’s WindsorDale the perfect cheese to add sweet bursts of luscious fruit. 

Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company gently cares for their land (in South Woodstock VT) and the lives of their animals to make fresh, quality, and artisan cheese available to all.
