We sent our staff on a little field trip the other week. That’s Clarice and Nicole making friends with some of the chickens at Stone Soup Farm. While we can’t promise you a trip to Western Mass, we’re offering you the next best thing this Thursday at our annual Meet the Farmer Night.
A little background. For the third summer, we are hosting farmshare pickups at 4 Clover restaurants. A farmshare or CSA is an agreement between you and a local farmer. You pay money up front, the farmer uses that money to buy seeds and hire people. Then, as a result of your up-front investment, you get a box of just-harvested produce every week from June-October. We think it’s the most cost-effective way to eat the best food. So we’re offering our restaurants free for farmers to drop their shares, and we’re offering our website for you to sign up.
Come to Meet the Farmer Night this Thursday, 6pm-8pm at the CloverHUB, 1075 Cambridge Street in Inman Square. It’s free and open to all. You can tell us you’re coming via this link.
