Best of Boston 2022 - Best CSA

HOLY SH*T, you guys! We were named Best of Boston for Best CSA!

Wowweeee are we excited. It's a nod to all of our partners - farmers, growers, and producers - and to this amazing community of supporters. It's also a well deserved high-five to our intensely dedicated, hard-working team. A huge thank you to everyone who makes this possible. Shucks, you're just the best.

From the folks at Boston Magazine:

"Attention, proud commitment-phobes and control freaks: If you’ve previously held back from buying CSA shares because you didn’t want to get stuck in a fixed subscription term — or with mystery boxes of useless items — know you can skip weekly home deliveries from Family Dinner any time. Or just treat it like a grocery-ordering service, with single, customizable shipments of everything from butter to blueberries to ground bison from small New England farms that share your fiercely independent streak."

Falling Into a New Season

Falling Into a New Season

Year after year, seasons change and every growing season brings its own challenges; droughts happen or like last year, we had the rainiest season on record. But. after years working outside and on the land many farmers have observations that indicate to them that the seasons are a changing!

There's Always Room for Pie...

There's Always Room for Pie...

"You can't please everyone, you're not pizza." Those words, uttered by some infinitely eloquent sage (was it Lao Tzu? Brené Brown? I can't recall), couldn't be more true.

The world seems intensely hectic, a pandemic-laden carnival ride we can't seem to get off of or get reprieve from. And as it spins faster and faster, there is also no reprieve from the demands on our time or attention. We pour the same amount of ourselves into an ever-increasing amount of cups, and somehow always feel like we're letting people down, not doing enough.

Good News for the Good Guys

Good News for the Good Guys

Farming ain’t easy. Raising animals with respect and care requires loads of effort. And one of the biggest hurdles facing many small farms is at the end of the cycle. There is a growing waitlist for animals to be processed at USDA-inspected facilities which have limited openings and capacity. The increased waits means farms are providing the good life to their animals for longer and longer periods, driving up costs. Additionally, in Maine, some facilities may only be approved to process meat to sell within the state or are only approved to sell certain types of meat.
