Secrets at Clover? Testing, testing, beta beta beta

10 May, 2021: You all know how we value transparency and talking openly about everything we do, even our screw ups. So writing this note feels a bit wrong to me.

I don’t want Facebook to watch you eat

26 April, 2021: We’re trying to figure out digital marketing. I keep feeling like I just have to hold my nose.

He’s smart and fun to work with and has the… Read More

I grew up almost walking distance from Four Star Farms. I’ve been playing around with non-alcoholic drinks that are fun and… Read More

Gifts from Pushpir in India đź’›

14 March, 2021: “I have okra. What do I make?” That was a text I sent to Pushpir back in 2015. He ran my favorite Indian restaurant (Guru the Caterer, still in operation today but under different management). We got to know one another and I would shoot him text messages when I had an ingredient so that he could guide… Read More

Meet the Super Bowl Box

22 January, 2021: My sister Asa and my best friend Alex met at a Super Bowl party in my tiny apartment when I was in grad school. Ever since then (Alex is now my brother-in-law) the Super Bowl has held a bit of extra meaning for our family. We don’t miss it. And as you may have guessed, food plays a central… Read More

When the leftovers leave the building

1 December, 2020: Ayr here. That’s me with my family getting ready to eat Clover Thanksgiving. We worked hard to build something that was delicious, affordable, and funneled money to MA farmers who encountered big challenges this year. Thanks to your support we were able to write checks to small businesses like Michael Docter (root veg), Ann Harris (apples), Czajkowski Farm (brussels), Plimoth Gristmill (cornmeal), Amber… Read More
