A Farm Fare Share

by Nicole Cormier, RD, LDN

Farm Fare Market, Delicious Living, Inc. and Cape Cod Heirlooms Farm got their "farm fare share" on this winter by coordinating a community supported food program that brings local foods to the table.

Farm share

Partnering with Jennifer Ladd, of Cape Cod Heirloom Farms in Sandwich, we designed five bags for share members that included greens, grains, legumes, baked goods, farm fresh eggs, homemade broth, homemade hummus, herbs and spices, homemade soups and local cheese.

This program was inspired by combining a community supported agriculture (CSA) share and a food co-op that offers items ranging from Arapahoe wheat flour to farm fresh eggs.

We are excited to provide locally sourced, fresh picked, handmade, sustainably grown, non-toxic, real food.

Spring Air

by Grace Finch

It's finally here!

Feeling the warmth of the sun on your face in early spring is one of the most invigorating and uplifting times of the year. The days are now getting longer and the sun has its chance to climb way up in the sky to provide us with many more hours in the day for playing or working outside.

Cherry blossom trees begin to put on a brilliant show with all the different shades of pink throughout their abundant flowers. The petals fall to the ground, covering the grass like a soft blanket as my front yard begins to look like a princess's home or a perfectly manicured aisle for a bride to walk down on her special day.

A roadmap for a
greener community…
One business at a time
