New this year! Enjoy a beautiful seasonal bouquet each week (mid-June-mid-October) from our neighbors at Blue Skys Farm. Christina has a real knack for growing and arranging some amazing blooms.

The meat share is provided by our friends Brian and Karla at Simmons Farm. This 120-acre family farm is located in Middletown, RI. This is some of the most delicious pastured pork, lamb and grass-fed beef in the state. Meat shares will be delivered once a month and typically include 4 approximately one-pound packages of frozen pork, beef, or lamb. Shares lean toward grill-friendly sausages and ground meat but include some chops, steaks and stew meat as well. Pastured chicken and goat also make appearances in the share when available. $372 for 6 monthly deliveries.
Cheese shares are also available from Simmons Farm and will be delivered with the meat shares once a month. The share will generally include two 1/3 lb packages of fresh cheese (chevre,feta, or fromage blanc) made by Karla in the farmstead creamery. Some weeks, one of the cheeses will be substituted with a quart of cow's milk yogurt, from the three grass-fed Jersey cows that call Simmons home. All cheese and yogurt is made weekly on the farm of 100% Simmons Farm milk. $72 for 6 monthly deliveries
