Please return your insulated liners & boxes!
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!

of the Week
Ground Up Grain, located in Holyoke MA, stone mills their flours using 100% locally sourced grains. Their All Purpose Flour is made with locally grown hard red and soft white wheat.
Each 5lb bag of flour directly supports 95 sq ft of Northeast farmland where grains serve as a cover crop, making our soil and water healthy and supporting a resilient food system.
Made with only three simple ingredients (corn, water, and lime) Mi Tierra‘s fresh-baked, local tortillas are some of the best tasting available. The organic and non-GMO corn is grown in small farms throughout western MA. The corn is produced using ancient nixtamal methods to form a maiz masa, or corn dough which is shaped into tortillas & baked.
Thank you & we'll see you soon!
