How we accidentally brought RI Mushroom Co to Russo’s

5 May, 2016: Did you try the Golden Oyster Mushroom we were testing today at DTX? This whole mushroom experiment has gotten out of hand. We no longer have the space at the HUB to store all the mushrooms you guys are eating. So Chris and Wanda worked out a deal with Tony Russo, where Rhode Island Mushroom Company can deliver to Russo’s and they… Read More

April fools at Clover

1 April, 2016: Today for a good part of lunch at Kendall and Newbury, the only sandwich available was the BLT. At Brookline Village, Shane started making breakfast so he’d have something to feed customers. Sorry all, this was not an April Fool’s joke. We really didn’t mean to run out of so many items today. We had a series of… Read More

CloverDTX Advent Calendar is up

6 January, 2016: I took my mom to CloverDTX over Christmas weekend to do something that’s become a Clover pre-open tradition since we opened CloverKND. We ask the contractors to paint over the windows with white paint. Then we use a blade to scrape out little windows, and I write messages in the windows. If you want to see for yourself, head… Read More

Cake story part 2

4 January, 2016: I have the culmination of the cake story I wrote about back in December. Thanks to Enzo for this story. This is Adrian. He’s Venezuelan-born and is the chef/owner of the Danish Pastry House. A couple weeks ago, he was picking up his watch in Brookline Village and walked by CloverBLV. He noticed we were selling a Venezuelan Plantain Sandwich. He… Read More

Meet Stacia

4 January, 2016: This evening I stopped by CloverHSQ and Stacia said to Ray, “That’s Lucia! We were just talking about you. They said I was the Clover encyclopedia, but I said YOU were the Clover encyclopedia. I’m like the Clover Bathroom Reader.” I Googled this term; don’t worry, it’s safe to click the link.  She’s being modest, but in reality,… Read More

Clover logo gets a new venue

6 October, 2015: The flesh of a pumpkin! I was thinking about ways to promote tomorrow’s beer launch with Jack’s Abby. We’re doing pumpkin carving and drinking a new pumpkin beer made with local pumpkins. Ayr suggested I carve our logo into a pumpkin. So on Friday night I watched an episode of Fargo and did this with the help… Read More

Street canvas

27 April, 2015: That’s Dave Tree painting. Somebody, I can’t remember who, had this idea to make this old side window into a sort of shadowbox that looks out onto a giant canvas (aka the wall of the building next door). Our kind neighbors at Viale were game, and now we have a giant rotating street art canvas. We didn’t… Read More

Higher prices coming soon

18 April, 2015: We’re going to change our prices Monday. I doubt many of you are psyched to read that. And it’s not exactly a fun thing to announce. But this is part of what it means to be a healthy company. I think we’re taking a thoughtful approach and I hope you will all be supportive. Here’s some of the… Read More

Tarragon Sandwich Testing at CloverKND Thursday 2/19

19 February, 2015: Chris came to the Food Dev meeting the other day with a spectacular tarragon sauce. Tarragon is an herb you find in French cooking. It’s slightly licorice-y, but very savory. And we think there’s a sandwich in there somewhere. We’ve made a version that incorporates Maine oats and a Chip-in Farm egg… If you’re into trying new things, come… Read More

Michael’s 18-wheeler

3 December, 2014: Michael Docter delivers most of his crops on bike. We said…certainly not in winter. But he said yes, especially in winter. The city of Hadley plows, and then Michael is usually the next vehicle out on the road. Why? He has a goal to make his farm carbon-neutral over the next few years, which is part of the reason.… Read More
