Farewell Jason!

10 June, 2022: Yesterday was Jason's last day at Clover. Jason came on board as our executive chef last year. His job was to develop recipes for our meal box program, so if you're a member of Taco, Pasta, Burger, or Soup, you've likely been enjoying some food from Chef Bond. We're going to miss Jason's steady nature, incredible culinary… Read More

$0.25 🍴?

6 June, 2022: I was reviewing our expediter interface with Jasper and Chris S (who do an amazing job running our restaurants) and noticed a *lot* of you are ordering your meals from Clover without utensils. This is inspiring! At one point somebody on our team (I can't remember who) suggested we make a "no utensils please" option on the… Read More

Dreaming of eliminating packaging waste

3 June, 2022: I had the best Clover Taco Tuesday box last week. But I can't ship it to you yet. Sorry... The reason? It was packaged entirely in re-usable containers. Look! No plastic! It just felt so good. The clear lid meant the food looked so beautiful (because it is), and at the end of the meal, the packaging… Read More

Deadline to get a CSA extended to June 6!

30 May, 2022: What's a CSA? Also known as a farmshare, a CSA is a direct relationship between you and a local farmer. You pay the farm up front before the summer, then in exchange for that initial investment, you get the best local produce for a fraction of what you'd pay at the grocery store. We've been offering up… Read More

Meet the new CMO

20 May, 2022: Hi folks. I’m Kiernan. Kiernan Patrick. Kiernan Patrick Schmitt. (I once met the comedian Colin Quinn at a New York City pizzeria and he told me I had the worst name he’d ever heard.) I just started as Clover’s Chief Marketing Officer, but I’ve been a Clover devotee since 2011. Back then I lived in NYC and… Read More

Snapchill coffee

20 May, 2022: I don't have any analysis to back this but I feel like there has been an explosion of cool food start-ups in the Boston area in the past few years.

Press

17 June, 2009: A bunch of you have asked why we don't make a big deal about the press we've been receiving, and why there hasn't been a mention of any of it here on the website. The truth is we needed some time to sort out our conflicted emotions regarding the recent coverage. You see we actually told some… Read More

Triple asparagus test this week

16 May, 2022: Asparagus is nearly in season in Hadley, MA. It was once so prolific there that it is still known as Hadley Grass, and if you're lucky you can usually buy it by the side of the road. We've always done a super simple 3pm special with asparagus, but we've always wanted to do more. I think this… Read More

Help Rosendo buy Winter Moon Roots!

26 April, 2022: If you've eaten with us you've probably heard us talking about Winter Moon Roots. Maybe you've snagged an elusive SDP or uttered the phrase "sweet beets don't keep." Or maybe you were one of the people who met up with Michael Docter on the street in Somerville for a bag of roots when the pandemic first started.… Read More
