It may feel more like winter these days, but incredibly we’re still enjoying locally grown produce! Beets, cabbage, carrots and potatoes are all abundant from our growers, and will pair well together as we work to keep warm on these chilly November days.
If you’re looking for some holiday spirit we’re now offering locally cut trees and wreaths from Nichols Tree Farm in Lyme, NH, in addition to winter greens and wreaths from Cube Mountain Products (Orford, NH). The beautiful balsam & fir scents will carry throughout your home and have you pining for more snow and mulled cider!
Some of our favorites are finishing up like Killdeer organic spinach and Pierson squash.

Long before "local" was incorporated into the positioning statement of every giant discount megastore, it was a cornerstone to the work of food cooperatives.
Like the organic and green movements, the local movement had an early champion in food co-ops, who for decades have been touting the need to preserve networks of small family farms and independent food producers.
