This year's turkeys will be from Tide Mill Organic Farm in Edmunds, Maine, a 200-year/ninth generation family operation! The birds grow up eating fresh green grass and organic grains, and enjoying fresh air and Edmunds' notoriously varied coastal weather. Processing occurs on the farm, which means the turkeys do not have to endure the stress of transport. Tide Mill Organic Farm turkey is always tender and delicious because of the respect and care with which they were raised. Turkeys will be delivered fresh or previously frozen.

Family Dinner on New England Living!
Watch us tour Clark Farm in Carlisle, MA with farmer Andrew Rogers on New England Living and CBS Boston!
"Working with Erin and Family Dinner, I have a guaranteed price that we talk about in the off-season and then I'm producing for her... It's a much more secure financial model for me... There's no waste. That's the beauty of her model... I can plant, harvest, and pack. She's there to pick it up and there's very little waste that occurs."
- Andrew Rogers, Clark Farm
"Sustainability is core to the Family Dinner mission. There's something for everybody in the story of local food, whether your primary concern is the environment, the ethical treatment of animals, workers rights or just having simply delicious tasting food, there's something for everyone."
- Erin Baumgartner, CEO Family Dinner

You've probably heard, likely because we can't shut up about it, that Family Dinner is soon expanding to Maine.
We were drawn to Portland for its incredibly diverse and vibrant food ecosystem and some truly incredible restaurants. Portland's Cong Tu Bot made it onto the NYT Top 50 Restaurants last week with the Times claiming "Happiness is a bowl of Cong Tu Bot’s chao chay on a chilly Maine morning." During the pandemic Cong Tu Bot transitioned into a daytime cafe and the throngs of people waiting outside every day are evidence that was a good call. Reservations not accepted, and per their eerily delightful website, neither are racists. "Seriously tho, no reservations and no racists please." My kind of folks and my kind of food. Hell, yes.
How It Works
Step 1: Choose your share (plus any add-ons). There's no commitment. Pay week-to-week and skip or cancel as needed.
Step 2: Let us do the work. We carefully curate each week’s share and place orders with local farmers and food purveyors. Shares can contain protein, dairy, eggs, produce, grains, and there's always a treat. Let us know if you have any allergies or aversions, and we'll make substitutions.
Step 3: Receive and enjoy! You receive an email on Friday with a list of ingredients and recipes. We deliver your order on Saturday or Tuesday. Cook, eat, and savor the delicious things you make.
Step 4: Share with friends and family! After every purchase, you'll receive an email with your unique referral code to share with your crew. They'll get 50% off their first order, and you'll get a discount code for 50% off a future order.
What is in a typical share?
Each share contains protein, fruits, veggies, and grains, tailored to your share type and size. We are happy to accommodate your food allergies or aversions.
