Best bread yet

21 July, 2017: Chris hasn’t slept in a few days, but he can finally rest, because he’s pulled off something amazing. And it’s something you can all taste today. We are baking our bread overnight. We’re thinking this will have a huge impact on freshness. It will also mean that the HUB is a lot cooler during the day. The… Read More

Zucchini!

12 July, 2017: That’s Martina, who leads up Food Development at Clover, at Next Barn Over in Hadley. She was telling us about her grandmother’s recipe for a zucchini flower pancake. If you see her, ask her about it. The flowers are a precursor to the zucchini themselves. Zucchini is hitting the menu hard. Stop by for Zucchini Fritters after 2pm. We grate the… Read More

Testing hummus bowls at CloverKND Tuesday

7 July, 2017: We have these beautiful chickpeas from Connecticut and Montana that we’ve been turning into a silky hummus. We’ve been inspired by some of the hummus shops in NYC.

Selling water at Clover

5 July, 2017: People have been asking to buy bottles of water since 2008 when I opened the first truck. Those first weeks in October 2008 we had 1 sandwich. No sides. No drinks. It wasn’t a statement, I just didn’t have any to sell. But as we grew I didn’t feel good about selling water in a plastic bottle.… Read More

Chip-in Farm

25 January, 2010: Saturday I took my kids to see the chickens that lay eggs for Clover. We’ve been getting our eggs from Chip-in farm in Bedford, MA. They are not organic, but they are free range. We’d love to use organic eggs but have found that we can’t get organic eggs that are local and fresh. So we stick… Read More
