Do you have a friend who needs a visit from the Clover van?

22 June, 2020: (Update July 2: this contest is now closed – thank you so much to everyone who has nominated a loved one! We will announce and contact winners early next week) As we gear up to re-open our restaurants (3 locations are open starting today!) and expand our meal box program (we’ve had to quadruple our capacity in… Read More

Bridgewater Nation is growing

7 February, 2020: Ayr got us a new camera, and I’ve been playing around with close-up photos. I’m pretty proud of this one of the Bridgewater. You can almost taste those crispy mushrooms! Our beloved Bridgewater leaves Tuesday the 11th to make space for a BRAND NEW MUSHROOM SANDWICH, the Mushroom Parm! If you’re on the app you may have… Read More

Greens were not blockbuster

13 November, 2019: This is Caroline from Kitchen Garden Farm tapping her cabbage to see if it was ready to harvest for our greens salads. But wait: if you’ve been reading since the beginning you might have remembered us claiming with great gusto that we’d never have greens salads at Clover. So what’s up? We’ve been committed to salads sans… Read More

Why is there Elvis playing in my restaurant?

6 November, 2019: Get it? King of Rock? King of Sandwiches? Enjoy some Elvis while you munch on your (King) Brussels Sprout Sandwich today at lunch. We’ve abandoned our admittedly repetitive playlists (sorry staff and customers that we made you listen to Mr. Postman a million times!) and are testing out a service called RX Music. They can make custom… Read More

Alien invasion

5 November, 2019: The shipment of Paw Paw doesn’t even fit in one picture! Chris just told us 2019 will go down in history as a banner year for paw paw in Massachusetts, which makes us happy because usually it’s a very short-lived treat. If you haven’t gotten a chance to taste this alien-looking (yet entirely local) fruit, get over… Read More

Free coffee to (not fossil) fuel your climate strike walkout on 9/20

16 September, 2019: Everyone knows Clover was started as a project to address climate change. Ok, nope, that’s a lie. I think very few people know this. Part of that has been intentional. People do not choose where to eat lunch based on their beliefs about the environment. And the link between meat production and climate change is a hard… Read More

Tips

9 August, 2019: We’ve turned on tipping. The bottom line: our staff are taking home a lot more money each week. That’s great. And it’s why we’re taking tips now. I’d held off on this for a long time. There is so much about tipping that is nasty. But I think technology has allowed us to avoid most of the… Read More

Adjectives that describe taste

13 April, 2019: I loved this. A group of advanced ESL students came to Food Dev the other week. They were studying adjectives, and their teacher is a big fan of Clover. Here’s hoping they tasted smokey, sour, infused, herbal, creamy, and savory – but not rubbery or burnt or plain! Read More

2019 version of writing on the side of the truck

11 April, 2019: New menus are up! If you’ve been by during the last month, you may have noticed some changes. This is the result of a lot of hard work from Ethan and Joseph, I can’t even admit that I understand all of what they did. But because of their programming work, we were able to put into place some… Read More

This is not Clover’s new videographer

14 March, 2019: This photo of Jane was taken in December. Doesn’t she look hopeful? We spent hours planning a video series about soup we planned to publish to Youtube. We woke up early, went to Lindentree Farm, said hi to Moira and Ari (farmers), gathered vegetables, and filmed Ayr chopping, seasoning, blending soup. The kids came home from school,… Read More
