Even though it may be the off-season for our farmers, they are still keeping busy! Batulo Mahamed, who is part of the Umoja Farmers group, has opened her own business in downtown Concord! She has been working on starting her own restaurant/catering business, and she finally had her grand opening yesterday as part of the Capitol Center for the Arts Culinary Artist-in-Residence program! Her delicious meat pies can be found at both the Capitol Center for the Arts and Bank of NH venue from Wednesday – Friday, 11am – 6pm! Read more about it in this article from the Concord Monitor

Many of our farmers also practice seed saving, a method in which they save their seeds from previous crops and then use them to generate new seedlings for the upcoming planting season. Some of the farmers send their seeds to Spring Ledge Farm, which nurtures them to a seedling stage. This helps the plants develop healthy roots, which will benefit them in the growing season. Once the seeds have germinated into seedlings, they are returned to the farmers and ready to plant!

Pantry Items

New Product!
  • Pomegranate and Aronia Berry Shrubbly- What’s a shrubbly? Good question: “It’s part of an American revival of old-time mixers called Shrubs. Before refrigeration was widely available people made use of perishable fruit by adding it to vinegar and then flavored drinks with the delicious “Shrub” mixers they created.”

    Shrubbly makes their Shrub from pressed fruit, herbs/spices, and apple cider vinegar and then use them to add crisp flavor to sparkling water. This flavor is lightly tart from pomegranate and aronia berry, sweetened slightly with honey, with the subtle spice of cardamom.  Only 6 grams of sugars and 25 calories per can from real squeezed fruit and honey.
