Everything tastes better outside (meet the Weekend Adventure Box!)


Meet the Weekend Adventure Box. Our dream getaway weekend of breakfast tacos, brats around the fire, hearty chili, fluffernutters, s’mores and drinks filled with local fruit. Ideal for cabins, van camping, backyards, or anywhere you have access to a cooler, basic cooking equipment, and a heat source. Everything in the box is hearty, delicious, playful, treads lightly on our natural resources and best of all, comes together in minutes with very limited prep (the recipe card even includes campfire cooking instructions!) For a whole weekend, all your meals are taken care of. So you can really and truly relax.

We’ll have a limited number of Weekend Adventure Boxes for pickup or free delivery on Thursdays and Friday in June so we recommend reserving now for the weekend that works best for you! Only seven dates available: 6/3, 6/4, 6/10, 6/11, 6/17, 6/24, 6/25.

📢 EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT – starting June 3 we are DOUBLING our delivery area to a 50 mile radius of 1075 Cambridge St, and just for the summer we’ll be delivering to the Cape on Fridays and Saturdays!!! So whether you’re in Worcester or Wellfleet, Taunton or Provincetown, Falmouth or Newburyport—we’ve got you covered!

What’s in the Weekend Adventure box? 

Don’t worry about cooking. Instead heat up our chili made with locally grown beans and nixtamalized corn (hominy), and slather some honey butter on Chris’s scallion cheddar cornbread made with locally-milled Plimoth corn and 1-year aged Grafton.

In the morning, use a campfire or stovetop to heat up these easy-to-assemble Potato, Egg, and Cheese breakfast tacos, made with Mi Tierra Tortillas, Grafton cheddar, and Mid-Isle Farm potatoes. Add a hit of guajillo chile salsa the way they do in the Texas Hill Country, wrap them in foil, and head out.

When you’re halfway to that beautiful vista but need some protein to fuel your path, open up these yummy pita pockets that you’ve filled with our creamy tofu egg salad, lettuce and pickles for crunch. on the side, a protein-packed farro salad laced with dill and feta.

We don’t want any dehydrated hikers, swimmers, or readers out there, so we’re packing full servings of locally grown fruit into your hydration kit. Even the smallest boxes will get a whole quart each of seasonal agua fresca and lemonade! Rhubarb is in, and as soon as local strawberries come up (not quite yet, but hopefully in a few weeks!), we’ll be making Strawberry Lemonade.

You can’t have a cabin weekend without s’mores! We’re giving you chocolate bars, graham crackers, and vegan marshmallows (conventional ones contain gelatin, these are gelatin-free), plus house-made blondies! 

Carrot lox are back!! Perfect for a (lazier) morning at the cabin. A customer favorite from our Snowed In Box last winter, this bagel spread has sourdough bagels from Forge, capers, tomatoes, and Chris’s own cashew cream cheese and carrot lox that could even make a New York deli do a double take. All you’ll need is a knife and a way to toast your bagels.

You can’t have a cabin weekend without this classic American meal! We’re packing you our favorites:  original brat sausages from Beyond Meat, plus locally made buns and simple fixings: ketchup, mustard, oh, and the turmeric onions we loved so much from our Star Wars Box.

Don’t be the one lagging behind – fuel yourself up with our favorite trail treats! Perfect for making at say, 10am, after someone in the group has made everyone get up at 6am to start hiking. We’ll give you everything you need to make Maple Fluffernutters, including house-made fluff, as well as trail mix. 

Use your campfire (or a more conventional heat source) to heat up these potatoes from Mid-Isle Farm (pre-baked in our kitchen to help speed things up). Then load them up with sour cream, sunflower seed pesto, and shredded Grafton cheddar. Wrap in foil for an old-fashioned hand warmer for cold nights! 

What’s the difference between a Sloppy Joe and a Sloppy Chris? Well, these are made by Chris in our kitchen, and they are made with lentils instead of beef. They were a big hit with kids and adults alike in our Super Bowl Box a few months ago, and they’re perfect for dinner on the last night when you’re already reminiscing about how much fun you had this trip. 

PS: Special shoutout to Stacia and Samara on our team who had the idea to do a camping-themed box, and Jack and his friends Cricket & Coleman who took the prototype box out on a test run, and came back with these fun photos!

The Pizza Friday Box gave us an idea: calzones! Ayr has been making these at his house and texting us photos. They’re big and saucy and so good. Basically a stuffed pizza/turnover situation with origins in 17th century Naples.

Thanks all who joined for the first public food dev meeting after Covid. Phil did a great job pulling it all together. If you’re a customer, farmer, vendor (or Clover staff member) reading this, you are invited to Food Dev! These happen Thursday afternoons at the HUB and they’re where all new food ideas are born. Just make sure to sign up – spots are limited.

House-made carrot lox, hearty vegetable stews with bread and pickles, Tunisian breakfast bowls, a pizza party kit, and a dream of snow, all in one box. Our Snowed In Box is back. This was Greg’s idea back in 2020. He thought it would be cool to make a box that was equally whether eaten after snowboarding or cozied up on the couch watching a movie.

We’ve been getting a lot of requests for the ability to gift a friend Clover Meal Boxes. After a lot of late night tech sessions, we have a way to do this! Yay! I’ve been looking and seeing a few of you have started to discover this feature and are starting to gift away. So cool to see.

If you’re a weekly meal box subscriber, you may have noticed way fewer plastic containers in your deliveries recently.When we started the program, we were in the pandemic, new to this whole home delivery thing, and a big concern was making sure that nothing spilled inside the boxes. So we relied on post-consumer recycled containers (aka plastic deli containers) for a lot of the items.

We’ve been getting back into the merch game. First up: squash shirts. I thought it would be fun to celebrate the diversity of the squash world. Although butternut is probably the squash you see most in the grocery store, there are actually over 100 types of squash, all with their own patterns, colors, and textures.

The Bridgewater is back!! This is probably the most requested sandwich on our menu. Michelle who runs our social media says she reliably gets one message per week asking when it will return. In 2015, Paul and Bryan came up with this sandwich as an homage to the jalapeño poppers at The Charlie Horse, a now-closed tavern in their hometown of Bridgewater, MA.

I love the holidays. I love the lights, I love the traditions, I love ornaments and pine needles all over the floor.  I love the movies (“Muppet Christmas Carol”) and the books (“A Child’s Christmas in Wales.”) I love the good songs, I love the schlocky songs (if you’ve never heard “Suzy Snowflake” or “Dominic the Donkey”, stop reading right now and click through.)

It was inevitable. Our meal box program had to find its way into restaurants at some point. A bunch of you have been asking if we can sell “on demand” meal boxes in our restaurants – for those times when you have last-minute dinner guests or forgot to subscribe by the deadline. So we’ve been easing into the process of combining one part of Clover with another.

Brussels Sprouts are extra sweet this time of year, and King Brussels, in his infinite wisdom, has cooked up a Brussels Week in our meal boxes. Every single subscription box will contain a recipe inspired by brussels! This is the first time we’ve explored a seasonal theme across our entire lineup and we’re excited to dive in.

This was Jane’s last week at Clover. We’re wishing her the best in her next steps (but also not so secretly hoping she comes back!)

Have you ordered your Thanksgiving Box yet? It’s already 50% sold out, so get your orders in this weekend if you can. This box comes with everything from stuffing to porcini-thyme gravy to mashed PEI potatoes to local cranberry sauce to bread to make leftover sandwiches. Most of the items can go from box to oven to table with very minimal prep, and we’ve made multiple sizes whether you’re dining solo or with a crowd.
