Serving Berkshire County Since 2008
We’re reaching that point in the local growing season where there is just so much abundance all around us. Gardens are fully producing and farmers are trying to move as many crops as they possibly can.

We understand some of our customers take a break from our service during the summer months because of their own garden, CSA or farmer’s markets which is why we love to remind everyone about our Fruit Basket or option to just grocery shop a la carte for those items you may not have.  

The taste of the fruit from our local orchards is just incredible compared to the fruit we usually have to have shipped hundreds or thousands of miles. This week’s local fruit standouts are peaches and blueberries. Enjoy them now as the season will end shortly.
Another One Bites The Dust
Campbell's Just Spent $700 Million on a Soup Company
When conventional food companies purchase organic brands, some may argue that positive shifts are made such as greater access to organics and lower prices for consumers. On the other hand, when an organic food brand is acquired, it is common that the new parent corporation reduces its commitment to organic ingredients and seeks out cheaper substitutes.  While we support the growth of the organic industry, the purchase of many independent brands can come at a price including not only a diluted product line but a change in company values and decisions based solely on profits not people.

As many of our customers know, over the years we have phased out certain organic brands when they are purchased by large conventional companies because our mission has always been to support smaller, independent organic food companies. Earlier this month we learned that Campbell’s Soup purchased Pacific foods. So for the next few weeks there will be a sale on all the Pacific items we carry so we can get ready to bring in replacement items from smaller companies. This week on our website all Pacific items are 20% off.  As these items move off of our shelves, the replacements will be brought in and featured in our weekly newsletter.

Local, NON-GMO, sweet corn season is here!
Crisp, sweet & delicious!

Now is a perfect time to enjoy raw corn salads.
Yes, raw corn is refreshing, filling and nutritious.
Just slice the raw corn off the cob, mix it with your favorite vegetables, a light dressing and salt & pepper.
One of my favorite combinations is corn, tomato, cucumber, avocado & fresh basil.
Did you know baby bok choy is perhaps at its most delicious when left raw?  Toss it into salads with other leafy greens or hearty, cooked grains.

Big, bountiful bunches of baby bok choy are now available for only:
Green, Red, Napa and Arrowhead cabbage are all available for crisp and flavorful summer salads and slaws.

We like to suggest the arrowhead cabbage because it is so tender.

Don't forget to add local carrots to your slaw. Orange and rainbow bunches are also available.
This is looking like the last week for local peas so if you want to freeze some, now is the time.

Sea Quench Ale

Dogfish Head Brewery 

Milton, DE

Sour Ale, 4.9% ABV, Bitterness: 10 IBUs

6-pack, 12oz cans

SeaQuench Ale is our session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. We begin by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then we brew a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt. We follow it all up with a citrusy-tart Berlinerweiss made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid.

Working alongside the National Aquarium out of Baltimore, Maryland, we've replicated sea salt sourced from both Maine and the Chesapeake Bay to give SeaQuench Ale its mildly salty characteristic.

And, releasing just in time for the 500th anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot - aka the “German Beer Purity Law” that says it’s illegal to brew with anything other than water, barley, and hops - SeaQuench Ale both commemorates (and disintegrates) this art-censorship law.

The release of SeaQuench Ale kicks off a new partnership between Dogfish Head and the National Aquarium that will focus on inspiring conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. Dogfish Head’s philanthropic contributions will help the Aquarium generate important conservation impact for a healthy Chesapeake Bay. The National Aquarium logo can be found on the SeaQuench Ale label and Dogfish’s brewed ales and handcrafted spirits will be showcased in the Aquarium’s café year-round and offered at select Aquarium events.

I love when a recipe calls for noodles, and not just any kind of noodles. Especially the kind that are yummy and veggie-based!

  I’ve been making this recipe for years and everyone always absolutely loves it. It is a summer time must. It’s a lot like a peach cobbler with the addition of blueberries.

Believe it or not, we came up with a new way to chop broccoli: Include the stems!

  Got cabbage? Great.
Make this recipe. It's very simple;
it won't take you more than a few minutes. Yes, roasted cabbage is really sublime.

Thank you for supporting a small, locally owned business, our local farms and local food artisans.
