Paul dreamed… Read More

Pancake flop

7 April, 2021: We sent out a few Maple Boxes late in March with double the correct amount of dry pancake mix. This was a bummer because 1.) our Maple Box was hugely popular and 2.) when made right our pancakes are delicious! If you were one of the folks who got the incorrect mix and made pancakes before we… Read More

Clover playlist

4 December, 2008: Some of you have been asking about the music. Here I'm posting the current playlist. The goal is to get to the point where we're playing all local music. For now we're going a different route. I've always thought the absence of country/ bluegrass/ folk music in retail is conspicuous. We decided to start with the Black… Read More

6 April, 2021: Tomorrow (Wednesday 4/7), two seasonal sandwiches emerge from our recipes vault and onto our menu. One breakfast. One lunch.  These sandwiches are so popular that we've even overheard people ask "What Chickpea Fritter?" after trying the Nashville Hot, and "What Classic Breakfast Sandwich?" after trying the French! So we are super excited to bring these new favorites back (although we… Read More

Clover x Winter Moon Roots

3 April, 2021: Try a meal box next week Despite what the display at your local grocery store tells you, the first sign of spring in New England isn’t asparagus or strawberries. It’s parsnips. But not just any parsnip. These are Spring Dug. On the outside they're gnarly looking, with a sprout of green at the top. On the inside, they're sweeter than… Read More

Pita oven finally gets to make something other than pita

1 April, 2021: Hot cross buns are yeasted, raisin buns historically eaten on Good Friday, so they have a special place in our Easter Box (btw if you haven't ordered yet, you have about 7 more hours!). As our Meal Box program has grown, Chris has found some creative ways to keep up with the demand. This week our dough… Read More

Confit root veggies for Easter

29 March, 2021: Chris was experimenting with items for our Easter Box, thinking like a rabbit, getting to play with all these beautiful roots that Michael Docter has been keeping safe for us in his barn. He was thinking about the technique called confit. This is used mostly for meat—where you slowly cook a piece of meat in its own… Read More

Clover x Katalyst Kombucha

27 March, 2021: browse meal boxes I love Katalyst's Hopped Kombucha. I found it a year or two ago at Pemberton Farms Marketplace. Katalyst Kombucha is from Greenfield, MA, and they are buying the hops from Four Star Farms in Northfield. 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

Last chance for Maple Box!

26 March, 2021: Growing up in Texas, maple was this magic thing that only came around once a year, in the form of maple sugar candy that would appear under the Christmas tree. When I moved to Boston and started working at Clover I learned about sugar shacks, and the temporary restaurants that pop up to serve the new syrup… Read More
