  And there's nothing like a small, artisan bakery to pull that off. That's why Jackie and I decided to
open up our personal and professional dream in Salem. It's a close-knit community, large enough to
be self-sufficent and small enough to embrace the burgeoning small business that make great
communities unique. We're a stone's throw away from a wonderful bookstore, shops and sights, and
amazing museum, antiques galore and some of the best restaurants north of Boston - all in the
center of one of the most historically important cities in America. We couldn't ask for anything more
(cue inspiring music).

 info@verrillfarm.com
http://verrillfarm.com

Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer
Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres
are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and
mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business.

In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982,
after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural
Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave
sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.

In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with a new
farm stand, which was built in 1995. Our location at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord now includes retail
space for produce, specialty foods and gifts, and a large kitchen/bakery providing high quality baked
goods, entrees, homemade soups, and salads.

Both our produce stand and kitchen are fully functional and we are looking forward to a 2009 filled
with our popular Festivals, cooking classes and special holiday menus. Our site has three useful
pages for you to stay informed about what's happening at Verrill Farm. The Current Events page is
updated often and includes many useful details on events, what's new from the kitchen and local
crops in season. The Events & Festivals page is our calendar for 2009 and third is the Verrill Farm
Blog. Please note, we always recommend checking for schedule changes before coming to events.

Tel: 617-778-0360
lionettes@gmail.com
http://www.lionettesmarket.com

At Lionette's Market and Garden of Eden we only work with naturally raised meats raised in small
family farms in New England, New York and Quebec. Naturally raised is as natural as you can get.
The animals roam freely on farms, eat what they want, when they want and have the freedom to live
naturally. There are no growth hormones, anti-biotic injections or trough feedings. All the beef we
use is grass-fed. Cows are ruminant animals and do not naturally eat grain (which is pretty much
what most of the beef in the USA is force fed). Grain feeding cattle is done to fatten up the cow, but
it also causes liver damage (thus the need for anti-biotics) and weakens natural stomach acids
which fend off e-coli. Grass-fed beef cannot get e-coli or mad cow disease (which spreads from
force feeding animal bi-products to cows).

We try to always have organic and locally grown produce when it is available.

Our eggs are farm fresh eggs from naturally raised chickens living in dozens of small farms in New
York and Vermont.

Delicious local fish is available most days of the week. Also check out our delivery service. We do it
without the use of truck or car, but with bikes!

life both locally and globally.

We must now teach each other and our children how to share and nurture the wonderful natural

Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer
Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres
are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and
mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business.

In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982,
after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural
Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave
sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.

In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with a new
farm stand, which was built in 1995. Our location at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord now includes retail
space for produce, specialty foods and gifts, and a large kitchen/bakery providing high quality baked
goods, entrees, homemade soups, and salads.

Both our produce stand and kitchen are fully functional and we are looking forward to a 2009 filled
with our popular Festivals, cooking classes and special holiday menus. Our site has three useful
pages for you to stay informed about what's happening at Verrill Farm. The Current Events page is
updated often and includes many useful details on events, what's new from the kitchen and local
crops in season. The Events & Festivals page is our calendar for 2009 and third is the Verrill Farm
Blog. Please note, we always recommend checking for schedule changes before coming to events.

OUR MISSION: To provision, serve and connect people through a thriving cooperative business.

To achieve and support our mission, Wild Oats embraces the following Statement of Values:
We recognize that our members guide the cooperative
We recognize and respect the diversity of our members
We support local production
We support environmental sustainability
We promote social responsibility
We encourage other cooperative ventures
We foster a sense of community concerned with consumer empowerment, food choice, and

We continue to be a comfortable, friendly place to shop and work
We operate using sound business practices in order to provide quality products at a fair price
We abide by and foster the principles in the Statement of Cooperative Identity adopted by the
International Cooperative Alliance

   Wild Oats Market is an independent, member-owned, cooperative-based whole foods market that
buys extensively from local and regional natural and organic food producers. One need not be a
member to shop at Wild Oats, although membership offers several benefits.

   The market carries a wide selection of organic and naturally-made products, including meats,
eggs, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, breads, pastas, oils, cereals, juices and chocolate. Wild
Oats Market also carries healthful supplements and personal care products, as well as
environmentally-friendly household supplies and books, candles and gifts.

   Although the first Wild Oats storefront opened in 1982, our beginnings as a neighborhood co-op
date back to 1975, when the Central Williamstown Food Cooperative (CWFC), a preorder food
buying co-op, was formed. Interest in the preorder co-op grew steadily, and in 1979, the group hired
a part-time coordinator to help manage the needs of its growing membership. At that time, the co-op
also moved its distribution site to a location that provided storage space for a small inventory.

   In the summer of 1982, a storefront location became available at the Colonial Shopping Center in
Williamstown and on December 15, 1982, Wild Oats opened its doors to the public.

   Wild Oats moved to its present location at 320 Main Street in 2005. Our new location, just
outside of downtown Williamstown on Route 2, not only gives us more room to offer members and
customers a greater variety of healthy, delicious food, but also more options on how to use our

space, since we own our building. For example, we were able to create a café in front of our store,
where customers can enjoy a cup of tea or a meal.

    Since moving to our new location, we've added a bakery, a grab n' go deli and a hot foods bar.
Our hot foods bar is open daily for lunch and dinner. The menu, which changes daily, features
international dishes, favorites such as pizza and Greek spinach pie, and classics such as roast
chicken and lasagna. Our grab n' go deli stocks a variety of fresh, healthy options for vegans and
non-vegans who enjoy the convenience of prepared foods. In our grab n' go section you will find
sandwiches, salads, heat-and-serve items, hot and chilled soups, along with cold drinks and snacks.

   The Wild Oats Bakery sells fresh-baked breads and pastries daily. Our breads include rustic
breads, French breads and baguettes, sourdough breads, challah and many other varieties. We
also offer freshly baked cookies, cupcakes and scones, Fair Trade coffee and a variety of teas.

   Want to try an item, but concerned about the ingredients? We are happy to tell you the
ingredients used to make any of our prepared foods, and whenever possible we list the ingredients
on the item's packaging. Our vegan items are clearly marked. If you have a question, please don't
hesitate to ask!

Sample Our Fresh, Local Fruits and Vegetables

 At Wild Oats, we are fortunate to be located near many local farmers and food producers. We have
relationships with many of the local producers; and as a result we are able to offer locally grown
produce on a regular basis, in addition to locally made cheeses, yogurt, milk and other dairy items.
We also stock locally produced eggs and locally produced, grass-fed beef and poultry.

Wild Oats is located on Route 2 in Williamstown, Massachusetts, not far from Williams College,

Urban agriculture has proven to be an effective way to promote community development because it
is a way for the residents of downtown Holyoke to maintain a connection to their culture while putting
down roots in their new home. Most of our members grew up on the farms of rural Puerto Rico and
many first came to the Northeast as migrant farm workers. Though they may live in the city now,
they are farmers at heart. They have lifetimes of experience in agriculture and it is part of their
heritage. Projects based on agriculture, such as markets and community gardens, build on the skills
and knowledge that participants already have, and are proud to have the opportunity to use to
improve their community and to teach to a younger generation.
History

Nuestras Raíces was founded in 1992 by the members of La Finquita community garden in South
Holyoke to manage the garden and with the goal of developing a greenhouse in downtown Holyoke.
Nuestras Raíces is building cultural pride as well as the ability of low-income Latinos in Holyoke to
address environmental, economic development, substance abuse, and food security issues.

local communities this may be the only way to preserve the rural landscape, enhance economic
development, and enable current and future generations to stay on the farm, caring for their land
and livestock.

We are currently seeking partners throughout the Northeast culinary community who are willing to
partite in the mission to sustain viable local farming communities by making a commitment to
purchase these locally raised and harvested foods, and feature these delicious products on their
menus. We are also looking for family farm markets and retailers within the Northeast to make these
locally raised foods available to the people in their community.

Our foods are purchased directly from small-to-medium sized family-run farms throughout the
Northeast. We are available to answer any questions and help develop menus that incorporate great
tasting fresh foods into your sustainable menus

Since its establishment in October 2007 by award-winning chef/author, Lisa Holmes, The Children's
Culinary Academy has become the area's premier cooking school for children. Throughout the
academic year, CCA offers recurring multi-week classes, birthday parties, special events classes,
and even themed classes for school vacations and holidays.

Additionally, CCA hosts a fun-filled and educational summer program that embraces gardening as
an exciting and essential part of the cooking process.

Children learn basic cooking and knife skills, culinary math, and nutrition in a fun-filled,
safety-focused environment.

CCA's mission is to reintroduce cooking to children and families and to promote a healthier
approach to eating. Children are encouraged to look for local ingredients, to understand where their
food comes from (strawberries come from plants, not plastic packages!), and to adopt a more
healthful, wholesome approach to eating. In Holmes' kitchen food is fun!

Bay End Farm, originally founded in 1906, has been providing fresh certified organic produce to
families, farmers markets, and restaurants around the Boston and Cape Cod communities for the
past 8 years. Bay End chooses to farm organically in order to provide its customers with vegetables
that are free of pesticides and herbicides and to work the land in a sustainable manner. The farm
believes that organic vegetables taste better and hold higher nutritional value than conventionally
raised vegetables.

Bay End's vegetable subscription program (also known as CSA) has grown in the past 8 years to
include families near the farm as well as in Cambridge, Somerville, and Plymouth. The program runs
for 20 weeks starting in mid June and continues through the end of October. Each week, customers
receive a bag of fresh picked, seasonal, certified organic vegetables and herbs and a bouquet of
(organically raised) flowers.


At Bay End, one can volunteer with all aspects of the farm: cultivation, seeding and planting, and
harvesting vegetables for our subscription program and farmers markets. Visitors may also stay
over at Bay End's Marie's Cottage or Overbrook House.

Bay End's farm stand is open on Thursdays from 2-6pm and Saturdays from 10am - 2pm from late
June to mid October.

Though we are not organically certified, we grow our products in that tradition. Due to the strict
guidelines of the National Organic Program (N.O.P.)of the U.S. Department of Agriculture some of
our growing methods are not up to standard at this time though we are moving in that direction. The
management of our compost pile and the difficulty and cost of obtaining certified compost from other
sources has hindered our certification. We feel this ds not compromise the quality or nutritional
value of the vegetables we grow. We are careful of the soil and try to use sustainable farming
techniques whenever possible. We use cover crops and plastic mulches with drip irrigation to
minimize soil erosion and we are using more organically certified fertilizers and soil conditioners. No
persistent chemical herbicides have been used on the growing fields for more than ten years.

http://www.farmerdaves.net

Since his first days in farming, Farmer Dave has been exploring methods of better farming.
Sometimes these methods may be new, sometimes they may be ancient ways that need only be
rediscovered, or old methods using modern equipment. Farmer Dave sees his role as feeding his
community in the best way possible. He understands that his customers are placing their trust in him
and his ability to provide a healthy product. That healthy product need not only be healthy for those
eating it, but also healthy for those working in the fields, for the soil itself and for the global
environment.

Most of Farmer Dave's produce is grown without synthetic pesticides. For a some crops, such as
sweet corn, this is not feasible. For this reason we are certified IPM (Integrated Pest Management).
This requires following the organic principles of green manures, crop rotation, protection of



                                                                                                 Page 31
massachusetts guide: csa

beneficial insects, bio-controls, weekly scouting of fields for pests, and well- timed application of only
the safest pesticides when needed.

Mirroring his work in Ecuador, Farmer Dave has been working closely with the University of
Massachusetts Vegetable Team to trial different organic methods that will then be taught to other
sustainable farmers. He has done much work on the efficacy of releasing beneficial insects into his
early corn fields to reduce the incidence of the European corn borer larvae in the sweet corn ears.
He has trialed and accepted numerous well timed organic sprays on crops as replacements to
synthetic sprays. For many crops he has developed growing systems that require no organic or
synthetic sprays. He has installed expensive drip irrigation systems to not only reduce the water
needs and provide a strong plant but also to keep irrigation water off the foliage of the crops to
reduce the growth of diseases and pests. His growing methods are guided by the National Organic
Standards and by his goals of achieving a sustainable system. Some of his fields could become
certified organic. Yet, because he has a direct relationship with the majority of his customers, he
finds it unnecessary to apply for, or pay the expenses of federal organic certification.

We are currently accepting applications for the 2009 season. Farmer Dave's is a certified IPM
vegetable farm and has four CSA drop off locations: at the farm in Dracut, in Lawrence, in
Somerville and in Lanesville (a community of Gloucester). CSA distribution is offered from early July
through late October/early November. Visit our website for registration forms and more information

Programs for visiting schools are the centerpiece of The Farm School. Each school year, 1,500
children join farmers and naturalists on our farm for 3-day programs. The students come with their
class, in groups of up to 40 at one time, many times splitting a week between two groups from the
same school. Many schools bring students for multiple visits spread out over several years. While
here the students find value in real work, create community that persists when they return to their
classrooms, and experience first hand what it means to be a steward of the earth. It's simple but it's
magical.

Every school that has come has returned. As a result, our calendar is usually quite full. However, we
welcome inquires about possible visits and are always looking for ways to stretch to fit in more
programs! If you are interested, please do contact Program Director Reid Bryant to begin a
conversation about your school coming to The Farm School.

Urban agriculture has proven to be an effective way to promote community development because it
is a way for the residents of downtown Holyoke to maintain a connection to their culture while putting
down roots in their new home. Most of our members grew up on the farms of rural Puerto Rico and
many first came to the Northeast as migrant farm workers. Though they may live in the city now,
they are farmers at heart. They have lifetimes of experience in agriculture and it is part of their
heritage. Projects based on agriculture, such as markets and community gardens, build on the skills
and knowledge that participants already have, and are proud to have the opportunity to use to
improve their community and to teach to a younger generation.
History

Nuestras Raíces was founded in 1992 by the members of La Finquita community garden in South
Holyoke to manage the garden and with the goal of developing a greenhouse in downtown Holyoke.
Nuestras Raíces is building cultural pride as well as the ability of low-income Latinos in Holyoke to
address environmental, economic development, substance abuse, and food security issues.

Since its establishment in October 2007 by award-winning chef/author, Lisa Holmes, The Children's
Culinary Academy has become the area's premier cooking school for children. Throughout the
academic year, CCA offers recurring multi-week classes, birthday parties, special events classes,
and even themed classes for school vacations and holidays.

Additionally, CCA hosts a fun-filled and educational summer program that embraces gardening as
an exciting and essential part of the cooking process.

Children learn basic cooking and knife skills, culinary math, and nutrition in a fun-filled,
safety-focused environment.

CCA's mission is to reintroduce cooking to children and families and to promote a healthier
approach to eating. Children are encouraged to look for local ingredients, to understand where their
food comes from (strawberries come from plants, not plastic packages!), and to adopt a more
healthful, wholesome approach to eating. In Holmes' kitchen food is fun!

Programs for visiting schools are the centerpiece of The Farm School. Each school year, 1,500
children join farmers and naturalists on our farm for 3-day programs. The students come with their
class, in groups of up to 40 at one time, many times splitting a week between two groups from the
same school. Many schools bring students for multiple visits spread out over several years. While
here the students find value in real work, create community that persists when they return to their
classrooms, and experience first hand what it means to be a steward of the earth. It's simple but it's
magical.

Every school that has come has returned. As a result, our calendar is usually quite full. However, we
welcome inquires about possible visits and are always looking for ways to stretch to fit in more
programs! If you are interested, please do contact Program Director Reid Bryant to begin a
conversation about your school coming to The Farm School.

Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer
Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres
are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and
mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business.

In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982,
after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural
Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave
sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.

In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with a new
farm stand, which was built in 1995. Our location at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord now includes retail
space for produce, specialty foods and gifts, and a large kitchen/bakery providing high quality baked
goods, entrees, homemade soups, and salads.

Urban agriculture has proven to be an effective way to promote community development because it
is a way for the residents of downtown Holyoke to maintain a connection to their culture while putting
down roots in their new home. Most of our members grew up on the farms of rural Puerto Rico and
many first came to the Northeast as migrant farm workers. Though they may live in the city now,
they are farmers at heart. They have lifetimes of experience in agriculture and it is part of their
heritage. Projects based on agriculture, such as markets and community gardens, build on the skills
and knowledge that participants already have, and are proud to have the opportunity to use to
improve their community and to teach to a younger generation.
History

Nuestras Raíces was founded in 1992 by the members of La Finquita community garden in South
Holyoke to manage the garden and with the goal of developing a greenhouse in downtown Holyoke.
Nuestras Raíces is building cultural pride as well as the ability of low-income Latinos in Holyoke to
address environmental, economic development, substance abuse, and food security issues.

The Allen Farm is one of the most photographed and painted spots in Martha's Vineyard. The farm
overlooks the Atlantic, and houses over a hundred sheep, who feed entirely on salt-tinged grass and
hay.

The owners of Allen Farm, Mitchell Posin and Clarissa Allen sell their chicken, eggs, and grass-fed
beef and lamb year-round from their on-farm store, which is open daily May through October and
then on the weekends up until Christmastime. The shop is closed January through March, but if
you're looking for some clean, pastured meat during that time, just give the farm a call and they
should be able to accommodate you.

The land on which Allen Farm's lambs, chickens, and cattle roam about and feast on clean,

the farm has stayed constant, so too have the farming practices. All of the animals are raised the
old-fashioned way, rotationally grazed on pasture and fed a steady diet of organic grasses.

The meats, which are all USDA inspected and certified, are sold frozen in a wide variety of custom
cuts. Allen Family Farm Natural Meats offers beef, lamb, and goats. Animals are grass-fed and not
feedlot raised, which decreases cholesterol in the meat. The animals are not fed routine drugs,
growth promoters, animal offal, genetically modified foodstuffs, or other additives. Animals are
processed in a USDA plant. Beef is available whole or half; lamb and goat are available whole;
packaged and delivered within 75 miles of Pierce City. Allen's uses a CSA model (Community
Supported Agriculture) where the consumer buys the animal when it is small and it then belongs to
the consumer. They raise your animal and have it processed and delivered to you. You choose the
cuts of meat and processing time. Please note that availability of meats is limited, so customers
should call ahead of time to inquire about inventory.

Aside from meat, the farm features all-organic chutneys, olive oil, blankets, sweaters, vests, throws,
and knitting yarn made from the farm's own wool.

This blue cheese was developed over a period of 12 years in Somerset England by A. Duffield, then
proprietor of the Willett Dairy. Since 2000 it has been made in Great Barrington, Massachusetts,
under the supervision of, and a licensing agreement with, Dr. Duffield.

Berkshire Blue is an entirely handmade cheese crafted by one person working with 60-gallon
batches of whole raw Jersey milk from the Berkshires. Other than the truck that delivers the milk,
and the heating and refrigeration equipment, no mechanical devices are involved in the process.
Vats are hand-stirred, curds are hand-cut and hand-ladled into small three-pound molds, which are
hand-turned, hand-needled, and hand-turned again (more than 24 times in all). The cheese is then
hand-wrapped and labeled. All this, along with periodic core sampling during the maturing period,
ensures that each small wheel is closely inspected many times during the nine weeks it takes to
become Berkshire Blue.

Berkshire Blue owes its smooth, moist texture and subtle flavors to this long process “ one requiring
more than 12 hours of attendance in the make room alone “ as well as to an extra battery of
introduced cultures: two types of starters, two blue molds and one white mold, and vegetable rennet.
Salt is introduced not in the vat, but by an overnight soak in brine, which requires a two-day stay in a
separate draining room with twice daily turnings. Twelve to 15 days in the maturing room is next,
where each wheel is turned every second day. The final stop is 45 days in a cold room, with weekly

turnings. The process here is identical to that in England, except for an additional 15-day aging
period to comply with U.S. regulations regarding products made with unpasteurized milk.

our growing methods are not up to standard at this time though we are moving in that direction. The
management of our compost pile and the difficulty and cost of obtaining certified compost from other
sources has hindered our certification. We feel this ds not compromise the quality or nutritional
value of the vegetables we grow. We are careful of the soil and try to use sustainable farming

The CapeAbilities farm, which opened three years ago, is a branch of the CapeAbilities non-profit
organization, which works to provide housing, transportation, and jobs to the area's handicapped
population. A membership to Cape Abilities Farm helps to create jobs for 50 Cape Codders with
disabilities who work at the farm.

At CapeAbilities, the growing technique is hydroponic which means that all nutrients, for example,
potassium, sulfite and Epsom salt, come from water via hoses to the plants. This allows for
complete control over what nourishes the tomato. The Hydroponic method is useful in environments
that are too harsh to allow conventional soil cultivation. It can produce a lot of uniform product in
one place and allows the farmer increased control over the environment.

The farm boasts three green houses. The first greenhouse features hundreds of bumble bees
busily pollinating the tomato plants, which yield thousands of pounds of plump, green tomats. The
second greenhouse features ten types of verdant, plush lettuce, including Romaine, Boston, Bib,
Miners, Salad Ball and Arugula. The third greenhouse is home to cucumbers, red and green
peppers, eggplant, zucchini and basil.

The fresh, locally grown produce from the greenhouse at capeAbilities is sold at their farm stand in
Dennis, at the Mid-Cape Farmer's market every Wednesday in Hyannis, and through their salad
club, which provides members with a weekly mix of salad vegetables.

Furthermore, the farm supplies several local restaurants with its produce such as 902 Main, The
Naked Oyster, Blue Moon Bistro, and the Brewster Fish House.

While capeAbilities is not a certified organic farm, it employs organic principles as often as possible.
According to Tom Zurn, the Director of Business Development for capeAbilities Farm, the only time
to consider conventional methods would be if something serious were to occur, such as if the entire
tomato crop were at threat, but luckily, that has not happened yet.


Farm Stand opens for the season on May 9 from Tues-Sun, 10AM-5pm

Greetings from the Chicoine Family Farm! Established in 1933, my father Henry Chicoine operated
a dairy farm. Today, we offer delicious, healthy grass fed beef. I began building the herd in the
1970's on nothing but the grass growing in our own pastures.

We offer beef free of antibiotrics, hormones, and steroids, etc. The grass they eat has never been
treated with any pesticides or herbacides. They graze freely all spring summer and fall. In the winter,
they are fed the sun-dried hay that we produce all summer.

Our herd is a closed herd. That means that our animals are born on our farm. We don't purchase
any animals at auction or anywhere else. So we can assure our customers that our animals have
been raised from birth on nothing but grass.

Our beef can be purchased on the farm, by appointment, and we also offer delivery services. Please

At Flat Point Farm, proprietors Doug Brush and Jeffrey Munr are raising healthy, free range poultry.
The chickens are raised in movable pens on fresh grass at the farm. The birds' feed is a basic,
un-medicated ration comprised primarily of corn, soy and oats. The chicken is not organic, but to
quote the farm's blog, “We try to be beyond organic bringing you the freshest possible product from
just down the road.”

Jeff and Doug raise their chickens in a floorless pen that the farmers move daily. This provides the
birds with the benefits of sunshine and fresh greens all the while aerating and fertilizing the fields.
The farm runs three 12' X 12' pens containing 75 birds a piece. Keeping with standards of humane
treatment, this provides 1.9 sq. feet of space per bird.

Our objective is to produce high-quality, all natural, grass-fed Black Angus beef. During the summer,
our animals range freely in our own pastures feeding on local grasses like timothy, red clover,
orchard, and canary grasses. Late in the Fall they move to our winter pasture where they receive
hay and grass silage cut from our meadows.

Our cows are bred to calve in April and May. During the summer the calves' main nourishment is
mother's milk but they begin to eat pasture grasses too.

In October the calves are weaned and sorted into four groups - the best heifers to join the main
herd, two or three top quality bull calves to serve as breeding bulls, other bull calves to become
steers for the beef program, and heifer calves for sale. At this time all our calves receive a standard
set of health vaccinations to protect them from various bovine viruses.

After weaning the calves begin their winter feed program of high protein second and first cutting hay,
and a small ration of wheat grain to support their fast growing, teen-age bodies.

The following May the steers (and the main herd of brood cows with their new calves) return to the
summer pastures. The steers remain on summer pastures until maturity in the fall when they weigh
1000 to 1200 lbs. At no time do the calves, steers, or any of our animals receive growth hormones
or antibiotics.

The Gould Farm Communities (hereafter referred to as Gould Farm) comprise a psychosocial
rehabilitation program that is steeped in the tradition of social service and fellowship. A
compassionate, respectful family environment where people with mental illness learn to build more
meaningful lives for themselves, Gould Farm provides many opportunities for "guests" to address
individual goals. Many people with psychiatric disabilities struggle in frustration on the margins of
society. Gould Farm invites them into the heart of its communities. Our services remain rooted in the
belief that every person has something valuable to contribute to the community regardless of their
mental or emotional limitations, and we assist in developing the strengths to realize these gifts as
they proceed on their road to independence.

Early in 2002 we began selling our delicious Gould Farm Cheddar and fresh curd, some flavored
with garlic and herbs. You can purchase our cheese at various retail outlets in the area or by special

 How On Earth is an organization which seeks to reestablish the diverse agricultural use of our
remaining farmlands and the vibrant economy that accompanies quality local food production. The
goal is to redevelop the local food supply, the local agricultural economy, and reconnect local people
to the land. Relying less on food sourced from around the globe, and more on locally grown food is
healthier for you and the planet. Supporting local agriculture has benefits that enhance the quality of
life both locally and globally.

We must now teach each other and our children how to share and nurture the wonderful natural
resources that our planet has to offer. In 1859, author Douglas Jerrold wrote,

“Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a h and she laughs with a harvest.”

Mapleline Farm Home Delivery Service was started by the fifth generation of Kokoskis in Hadley,
Massachusetts (USA).

It began way back in 1904, when great-great grandfather Stanley Kokoski and his family, purchased
the farm, after finding an ad placed for its sale, in the local newspaper. The farm, at that time,
consisted of various vegetables and a small herd of cows. The milk was brought by horse and
wagon to the local train station in Cushman to be delivered to the dairy. Stanley Kokoski ran the
farm with his two sons, Henry Sr. and Thomas.

Henry Sr. eventually took over the reins of the farm, and then the farm began concentrating on
crops such as tobacco, onions, and potats. The cows were sold, but this proved to be a temporary
situation.

As the next generation of Kokoskis began to take over, cows returned to the farm. It was time for
Henry Jr. to run the farm. Over the next twenty-five years, the family ran the dairy and cultivated
vegetables. However, in time the farm once again switched back to vegetables only. The cows were
sold in the mid-70's but farming was not abandoned.

As history usually repeats itself, the Kokoski family was not done passing the family farm down, and
that meant cows were coming back with the next generation. John Kokoski took over the reins from
his dad, Henry Jr., in 1986. The dairy portion of the farm was growing at Mapleline along with field
crops. Hay and corn were prevalent on the picturesque acreage around the farm.

John's love for the farm and the Jersey cow was evident when he decided to take dairy farming to
the next level. He began bottling his own milk into glass bottles and selling it from a tiny store off the
front of the barn in 1995. The customers loved the idea of local farm fresh milk in glass bottles; it
became evident that John and his family needed more space.

In 2000, the present farm store was built, and in 2001 the next generation of Kokoskis returned to

the farm to find their own niche. John's son, Paul, decided to take a step back in time and begin
delivering glass bottled milk to the customer's doorstep.

As the farm spans five generations in the Pioneer Valley, history really ds repeat itself, and it is
certain that the Kokoski family loves farming!

well-being, as well as that of our customers. Our cattle are raised in pastures, rather than in feedlots.
Feeding animals in pastures, with trees for shade and protection from the elements, room to roam
so that the cattle can spread out, short grass for keeping the livestock cool in the summer, and fresh
water, virtually eliminates disease problems in the herd. We do not use artificial growth hormones,
growth stimulants, or artificial or antibiotic feed additives.

Welcome to Small Ones Farm, our family-owned 63-acre farm in South Amherst, Massachusetts.
We use natural, earth-friendly and people-friendly farming techniques (no synthetic chemicals) to
grow fruit, hay, vegetables and Christmas trees.

When you taste our peaches, pears, plums, and over 40 varieties of apples, you are experiencing
natural, local, family farming at its best. And, you gain the satisfaction that comes with supporting
your local farmer.

Our naturally grown hay is fed to cows, sheep, goats and other animals in our local community. Our
hay helps those animals-and the food we get from them- to be free of synthetic chemicals.

Our children's programs promote love and respect for the environment among young people, and
help them gain an appreciation for the living system that is the source of their food.

We do not use any synthetic chemicals on the farm. Our goal is to achieve economic sustainability
through natural farming practices.

Founded in 1995 by Geri and Stan Johnson and Dee Dee Mares, Songline Farm of Gill, MA, is
committed to raising genetically superior, all natural emu stock. We maintain records of egg
production, fertility and vitality at least three generations back. Our participation in a superior feed
and natural supplement program (no hormones or antibiotics), coupled with our focus on genetics
and the "art/science" of phenotyping has produced birds of exceptional size and quality.

Emu is a very lean (97% fat free) red meat similar to beef in both taste and appearance. Emu are
higher in protein, vitamin C and iron compared to beef; lower in cholesterol compared to chicken.
Emu gives red meat lovers what they want and health conscious consumers what they need. In fact,
the American Heart Association recognizes emu meat as a healthy alternative to beef.

Songline's emu steaks, ground meat and sausages can be purchased directly at the farm (along
with a variety of emu oil products) from April 1 to October 31 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from
noon to 6 p.m. Educational farm tours about raising emus are available on these days. Shipping

Programs for visiting schools are the centerpiece of The Farm School. Each school year, 1,500
children join farmers and naturalists on our farm for 3-day programs. The students come with their
class, in groups of up to 40 at one time, many times splitting a week between two groups from the
same school. Many schools bring students for multiple visits spread out over several years. While
here the students find value in real work, create community that persists when they return to their
classrooms, and experience first hand what it means to be a steward of the earth. It's simple but it's
magical.

Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer
Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres
are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and
mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business.

In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982,
after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural
Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave
sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.

In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with a new
farm stand, which was built in 1995. Our location at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord now includes retail
space for produce, specialty foods and gifts, and a large kitchen/bakery providing high quality baked
goods, entrees, homemade soups, and salads.

Both our produce stand and kitchen are fully functional and we are looking forward to a 2009 filled
with our popular Festivals, cooking classes and special holiday menus. Our site has three useful
pages for you to stay informed about what's happening at Verrill Farm. The Current Events page is
updated often and includes many useful details on events, what's new from the kitchen and local
crops in season. The Events & Festivals page is our calendar for 2009 and third is the Verrill Farm
Blog. Please note, we always recommend checking for schedule changes before coming to events.

Wheel-View Farm in Shelburne is a family owned scenic hilltop farm in western Massachusetts
raising USDA certified natural (http://www.wheelviewfarm.com/beef.htm" grass-fed beef and
breeding stock from our primarily (http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/cattle/highlandScottish
Highland and (http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/cattle/beltedgalloway/index.htm" Belted Galloway
herd.

The cattle graze contentedly on our summer pastures and are fed grass-legume hay from our fields
during the winter. These heritage breed cattle do an excellent job of maintaining open space on land
that is not suitable for grain or vegetable crops. We have chosen this type of farming because it is
more environmentally friendly, more humane for the animals, and also healthier for the consumer.

Unlike commercial feedlot cattle that are raised in confinement and fed a diet of grain, synthetic
vitamins, growth hormones, and antibiotics, our grass-fed animals live very different lives. They live
on pasture from birth to market. Because they live a more natural, less stressful life the animals are
very healthy and calm. We determine the growth rate of our animals not by artificial hormones and
grain but instead by genetics and quality of the forage, resulting in a nutritious healthier product.

Our beef can be shipped anywhere within New England or the surrounding states! Contact us for
details.

Aside from beef, we also produce (http://www.wheelviewfarm.com/flower.htm" flowers and
(http://www.wheelviewfarm.com/maple.htm" maple syrup! Come visit us on the farm, and check out

We raise a small number of Belted Galloways here on our farm in Groton MA. "Belties" are a
flavorful beef, with very little fat, making them an extremely healthy choice. Our animals are raised
on pasture in the spring through fall and fed locally grown hay in the winter months. We feed only a
small amount of grain (about 2 cups per animal per day) which they love. No other supplements are
used.

We use natural insect management practices (fly predators) and the only medication used is a
wormer applied twice a year.

We sell sides and mixed quarters. If you need help understanding what this means to you, just ask.
We love to talk about the animals. You are welcome to stop by and take a look for yourself. It's a
great lifestyle and we love to share it.

Bay End Farm, originally founded in 1906, has been providing fresh certified organic produce to
families, farmers markets, and restaurants around the Boston and Cape Cod communities for the
past 8 years. Bay End chooses to farm organically in order to provide its customers with vegetables
that are free of pesticides and herbicides and to work the land in a sustainable manner. The farm
believes that organic vegetables taste better and hold higher nutritional value than conventionally
raised vegetables.

Bay End's vegetable subscription program (also known as CSA) has grown in the past 8 years to
include families near the farm as well as in Cambridge, Somerville, and Plymouth. The program runs
for 20 weeks starting in mid June and continues through the end of October. Each week, customers
receive a bag of fresh picked, seasonal, certified organic vegetables and herbs and a bouquet of
(organically raised) flowers.


At Bay End, one can volunteer with all aspects of the farm: cultivation, seeding and planting, and
harvesting vegetables for our subscription program and farmers markets. Visitors may also stay
over at Bay End's Marie's Cottage or Overbrook House.

Bay End's farm stand is open on Thursdays from 2-6pm and Saturdays from 10am - 2pm from late
June to mid October.

The CapeAbilities farm, which opened three years ago, is a branch of the CapeAbilities non-profit
organization, which works to provide housing, transportation, and jobs to the area's handicapped
population. A membership to Cape Abilities Farm helps to create jobs for 50 Cape Codders with
disabilities who work at the farm.

At CapeAbilities, the growing technique is hydroponic which means that all nutrients, for example,
potassium, sulfite and Epsom salt, come from water via hoses to the plants. This allows for
complete control over what nourishes the tomato. The Hydroponic method is useful in environments
that are too harsh to allow conventional soil cultivation. It can produce a lot of uniform product in
one place and allows the farmer increased control over the environment.

The farm boasts three green houses. The first greenhouse features hundreds of bumble bees
busily pollinating the tomato plants, which yield thousands of pounds of plump, green tomats. The
second greenhouse features ten types of verdant, plush lettuce, including Romaine, Boston, Bib,
Miners, Salad Ball and Arugula. The third greenhouse is home to cucumbers, red and green
peppers, eggplant, zucchini and basil.

The fresh, locally grown produce from the greenhouse at capeAbilities is sold at their farm stand in
Dennis, at the Mid-Cape Farmer's market every Wednesday in Hyannis, and through their salad
club, which provides members with a weekly mix of salad vegetables.

Furthermore, the farm supplies several local restaurants with its produce such as 902 Main, The
Naked Oyster, Blue Moon Bistro, and the Brewster Fish House.

While capeAbilities is not a certified organic farm, it employs organic principles as often as possible.
According to Tom Zurn, the Director of Business Development for capeAbilities Farm, the only time
to consider conventional methods would be if something serious were to occur, such as if the entire
tomato crop were at threat, but luckily, that has not happened yet.


Farm Stand opens for the season on May 9 from Tues-Sun, 10AM-5pm

Sustainable Food…

At each of our farmer's markets, we are committed to providing customers with a wide variety of
fresh, local and sustainably grown produce. Much of it comes from our urban farm sites, only blocks
away from the market, while the rest is harvested by youth on our farms out in Lincoln, Beverly, and
Ipswich. In addition to our own produce, you may also find fresh fruit from local orchards,
homegrown veggies from neighborhood gardeners, bread and baked goods from local bakeries,
flowers from our farm, and local honey from the Boston Honey Company.


…Sustaining Community!

Farmers markets have long served as vibrant centers for community building, information exchange,
health and nutrition education, and local entertainment as well as a venue for community economic
development. At the markets we run in Lynn and Boston, we invite local growers and food vendors
to sell their produce and other goods alongside us. We also seek out community and youth groups,
nutritionists, artists, musicians, and other entertainers to attend the market throughout the season,
contributing to the vibrant, festive atmosphere that make farmers' markets such an enjoyable place
to visit and shop.


Specialty Vegetables, Affordable Prices

In order to better serve the needs and tastes of our diverse community we also grow and sell local
favorites. "Tongue of Fire" shell beans (used in Cape Verdean cuisine), assorted hot peppers,
calaloo (used in dishes from the Caribbean) and Asian cooking greens are all grown per request of
our market customers. As another aspect of our commitment to the community, we sell our
sustainably grown vegetables as affordably as possible - aiming to match the prices of
conventionally grown vegetables at local supermarkets or bodegas. Located in neighborhoods that
have limited access to fresh, local, and sustainably grown produce, we are proud to be able to give
back in this way to the neighborhoods that host our urban farm lots.

Urban agriculture has proven to be an effective way to promote community development because it
is a way for the residents of downtown Holyoke to maintain a connection to their culture while putting
down roots in their new home. Most of our members grew up on the farms of rural Puerto Rico and
many first came to the Northeast as migrant farm workers. Though they may live in the city now,
they are farmers at heart. They have lifetimes of experience in agriculture and it is part of their
heritage. Projects based on agriculture, such as markets and community gardens, build on the skills
and knowledge that participants already have, and are proud to have the opportunity to use to
improve their community and to teach to a younger generation.
History

Nuestras Raíces was founded in 1992 by the members of La Finquita community garden in South
Holyoke to manage the garden and with the goal of developing a greenhouse in downtown Holyoke.
Nuestras Raíces is building cultural pride as well as the ability of low-income Latinos in Holyoke to
address environmental, economic development, substance abuse, and food security issues.

The Gould Farm Communities (hereafter referred to as Gould Farm) comprise a psychosocial
rehabilitation program that is steeped in the tradition of social service and fellowship. A
compassionate, respectful family environment where people with mental illness learn to build more
meaningful lives for themselves, Gould Farm provides many opportunities for "guests" to address
individual goals. Many people with psychiatric disabilities struggle in frustration on the margins of
society. Gould Farm invites them into the heart of its communities. Our services remain rooted in the
belief that every person has something valuable to contribute to the community regardless of their
mental or emotional limitations, and we assist in developing the strengths to realize these gifts as
they proceed on their road to independence.

Early in 2002 we began selling our delicious Gould Farm Cheddar and fresh curd, some flavored
with garlic and herbs. You can purchase our cheese at various retail outlets in the area or by special
order from the farm.

 How On Earth is an organization which seeks to reestablish the diverse agricultural use of our
remaining farmlands and the vibrant economy that accompanies quality local food production. The
goal is to redevelop the local food supply, the local agricultural economy, and reconnect local people
to the land. Relying less on food sourced from around the globe, and more on locally grown food is
healthier for you and the planet. Supporting local agriculture has benefits that enhance the quality of
life both locally and globally.

We must now teach each other and our children how to share and nurture the wonderful natural
resources that our planet has to offer. In 1859, author Douglas Jerrold wrote,

“Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a h and she laughs with a harvest.”

L'Espalier is often credited with being the first independently owned restaurant to bring haute cuisine
to Boston, and doing so with a trailblazing commitment to using local, fresh ingredients from New
England. Located on Boylston Street when it opened in 1978, L'Espalier moved to a historic Back
Bay townhouse in 1982, only to return to Boylston Street in 2008 where it currently resides adjacent
to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Under Chef, Proprietor, Author and now Farmer Frank McClelland's stewardship, L'Espalier has
consistently been rated at the top of national and local best restaurant lists (Zagat, Boston
Magazine, Frommer's Travel Guide, Wine Spectator, among them). The restaurant has received
numerous accolades including the "Distinguished Restaurant Award" from Mimi Sheraton, as well as
being the first New England restaurant to receive four stars from The Boston Globe food critic,
Alison Arnett. In 1996, Nation's Restaurant News bestowed L'Espalier with its highest honor,
inducting the restaurant into its “Fine Dining Hall of Fame.” L'Espalier is the only independent
restaurant in New England to receive eleven consecutive AAA Five Diamond Awards (the only
Boston restaurant with this distinction) and also has earned twelve consecutive Mobil (now Forbes)
Four-Star awards.

In response to these many accolades Chef McClelland would demure and shift the focus to the
longevity and loyalty of his employees, some of whom have been part of his team for more than
three decades.

http://www.adriansrestaurant.com/

Located at the Outer Reach Resort and overlooking the Cape Cod Bay, Adrian's has been serving
breakfast and dinner for over 20 years. Specialty omelettes, lobster benedict, and cranberry
pancakes are breakfast favorites, while regional Italian fare is served at dinner, featuring local
seafood, pastas, and gourmet pizzas, utilizing the freshest ingredients available.

Much of Adrian's produce is sustainable. The restaurant has a garden where it grows all of the
herbs it uses for cooking. While not certified organic, the garden ds not use any pesticides or
chemical fertilizers--only its own compost. Adrian grows tomats, swiss chard, among other veggies
often used in his menus. Regarding meat and chicken, all of the beef that he uses comes from
North East Family Farms and is pasture raised without antibiotics or hormones.

As Adrian expressed, because the restaurant is seasonal, and in Cape Cod our growing season is
somewhat short and unavailable locally, we cannot always purchase locally, but do so whenever
possible. All fish is purchased from local fishermen (i.e., lobster, clams, oysters). "The fish that I
use daily is usually line caught and small day boat catch." In regard to other food sources that
Adrian uses, due to the nature of serving Italian food, he ds bring imported Italian products into his
kitchen; however, "all of these products are made under very strict rules and regulations that far
surpass many of the guidelines that we use in this country."

Adrian's Restaurant has been recommended by the Boston Globe, Boston Phnix, Cape Cod Life
Magazine, the Yankee Magazine Traveler, AAA Travel Guide, Fodor's, Zagats and has been
featured on Channel 5's "Chronicle."

http://www.biabistro.com/

Chef Brian Houlihan's commitment to sustainable aquaculture and agriculture is not only exemplary,
it's award-winning. Chef Houlihan was recently recognized by the National Environmental Trust for
spearheading a campaign to stop the use of Chilean Sea Bass in area restaurants and for bringing
attention to the plight of this fish, which is now on the brink of extinction thanks to over-fishing.

Chef Houlihan makes certain to stock his seafood-themed menu only with what he can get locally
from small-scale fisherman that work the waters off the Massachusetts coast. Everything he brings
into his kitchen is right off the boat of fisherman that he knows personally, not right off the plane
from some exotic locale.

This dedication to locally-raised, environmentally sound products extends to meat and produce as
well. When meat is served it is usually poultry (chicken and duck) that is non-medicated and
cage-free. During the warmer months, just about all the produce comes from a small, sustainable
farm located about a mile and a half down the road.

Bia Bistro serves up what Chef Houlihan describes as, French bistro food with Italian influence. The
menu changes frequently to reflect the seasons and the availability of local produce.

Bia Bistro is open for dinner Tuesday through Friday from 5 to 10 p.m.; Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m.;
and Sunday from 5 to 9 p.m. Closed Mondays.

Cafe Lucia has provided Lenox with upscale, fine Italian dining since 1983. In that time, the
restaurant has done much to support the community and the health of its patrons by purchasing
organic vegetables and greens from local, small farmers. Each year the kitchen welcomes a
sizeable bounty of fresh lettuce, tomats, beets, arugula, and more from the moment the products
sprout from the soil until the first freeze of the season.

The same philosophy touches upon Cafe Lucia's meat purchasing as well. Most of the restaurant's
meats come from a local butcher who supplies the kitchen with antibiotic and hormone free
selections. Although the restaurant's staff makes a concerted effort to stock the menu with as many
all-natural offerings as possible, they are not always able to offer such selections due to availability.
Customers should inquire to get an up-to-date run-down on the current menu.

Cafe Lucia is only open for dinner and reservations are recommended.

agricultural history, and even the area micro-climates. (The farmers in the Hilltowns of Western
Massachusetts like to joke that farms in the Boston suburbs are in the banana belt).

What ds this mean for our customers? It means that during the growing season, you get the
freshest, tastiest vegetables possible (usually picked that very morning). It means getting gorgeous
organically grown vegetables from Ray Mong at Applefield Field in Stow. It means getting all-natural
pasture-raised beef from Jon Konove out in Brimfield. It means getting beautiful fruits and
vegetables and exquisite pork that has been humanely raised by Glenn and Genevieve Stillman out
in New Braintree. It means getting the best heirloom apples and peaches. It means that the cider
you get here is local and delicious (mainly from Box Hill Orchards).

We have spent years scouring the New England countryside in our free time searching out small,
local farmers that take pride and care in both what they do and how they do it. We have visited most
of the many farms we do business with (we still have to visit some cheese makers) learning about
the farmers and their growing practices, making sure they are ecologically responsible, and in the
case of the animals, that they are humane.

Why local? It is certainly fresher and tastier but we like the idea that is means less "truck miles" to
bring our food to the restaurant, and hence less pollution. We are big fans of the fast-disappearing
rural environment, and feel strongly that one way to protect that environment is to support our local
farmers. These are the little guys who are too small to cash in on the huge government subsidies
that are doled out to giant agri-business. These are the guys that get up at 3:30 am every morning,
day in and day out, to do the milking. These are the guys that never stop working as long as there is
light during the growing season, We applaud and admire them for all their hard work, and we urge
you too, to search them out and support then as much as possible.

Here is a partial list of the farmers we do business with:
* The Mongs, Applefield Farm, Stow, MA: Vegetables
* The Stillmans, Stillman Farm, New Braintree, MA (also the J.P. Farmers' Market behind Fleet
Bank): Fruit, vegetables, pork.
* Jon Konove, River Rock Farms, Brimfield, MA: Naturally-Raised Beef

Chef Paul O'Connell opened Chez Henri, the French restaurant with a Latin twist, in Cambridge in
1994. Chez Henri was named best new restaurant that year by both Esquire and Bon Appetite and
has gone on to win several Best of Boston awards including "Best Fusion," "Best French
Restaurant," "Best Cocktail: Mojito," and "Best First Date Restaurant."

Upon graduating from Johnson and Wales University, Paul worked with several of Boston's top
chefs, including Lydia Shire at the Parker House Hotel, Jasper White at the eponymous Restaurant
Jasper, Chris Schlesinger at the East Coast Grill and with Todd English as opening sous chef at
Olives in Charlestown. While working with these chefs Paul learned the importance of using locally
grown and raised foods and honed his skills in wood-fire grilling and pastries.

In 1993, Paul opened his first restaurant, Providence, in Brookline, which received critical acclaim
including three stars from the Boston Globe and recognition from both Esquire and Gourmet. Paul
closed Providence in 2000 and now focuses solely on Chez Henri.

Paul is also committed to many charities such as Greater Boston Food Bank, Taste of the NFL, The
Farm School and the Super Hunger Brunch. Paul is a member of Slow Food and The Chefs
Collaborative.

 Coonamessett Farm is a twenty-acre farming and research enterprise located on Cape Cod in
Massachusetts, USA. The operation is organized in three Divisions: Agricultural Production,
Research, and Consulting.




                                                                                                Page 177
massachusetts guide: restaurants

 At Coonamessett, food crops are grown locally and with low input practices. The Research Division
conducts multi-disciplinary field projects on land and at sea in a variety of areas, including growing
technologies and new approaches to pest management and weed control.
 From 35 members in 1994, the farm now boasts over 2,000 family members who pay $20 annually
to be able to pick their own produce, visit with the animals, rent a kayak to paddle on Coonamessett
Pond and receive discounts on the numerous special events hosted at the farm (Yoga, “Jamaican
Grill Night,” Halloween Party).

Today when you visit the farm, a short driveway leads you to the general store where you can
purchase gourmet and natural foods and hand-crafted items some of which are made locally. If you
are hungry, you can purchase a salad or wrap sandwich or a hot entrée such as eggplant
Parmesan, vegetable lasagna, corn chowder or a veggie burger and enjoy it on the wide dining
room porch the overlooks the farm.

Contact: Chef Tony Maws
craigiestbistrot@aol.com

As detailed on the Craigie Street Bistrot website, Chef Tony Maws insists (to the point of fanaticism!)
on using only the freshest and highest quality ingredients. To Chef Maws, this means buying local
and in season. In fact, according to Maws, the menu is beyond seasonal as it changes daily
depending on what he can source from an array of small, northeastern, sustainable producers (the
total number of which, he can't even being to count), many of whom Maws knows personally.

Maws explains that this approach to sustainability is two-fold: he supports it philosophically and from
a quality standpoint. Sustainable agriculture is a noble initiative in and of itself, but it also helps that
those who observe its tenets most often produce delicious, high quality food.

Essentially, the menu at Craigie Street Bistrot is what it is not because of sustainability's increasing
trendiness, but because it just makes sense.

The listing of meats below is a just judicious sampling of the typical menu offerings--not all of these
meats will be available all at once at any one time. It should be noted that all of the meats at Craigie
Street Bistrot come from the general region, including western Massachusetts, upstate New York,
and Vermont.

Craigie Street Bistrot offers a select nightly menu of five appetizers, five entrees, and five desserts,
plus specials on most evenings. Again, the menu changes nightly, based on what Chef Tony Maws
considers to be the best available seasonal ingredients that day.

Enzo Owner John Yingling has played an important role in bringing local and organic food to the
Cape through his support of Nestwood farm, a Truro farm on which he and his family reside.This
land, worked by farmer Criss murphy is one of the largest on the outer cape and has supplied
organic local vegetables for Enzo, Blackfish, Juice, Terra Luna and various other local restaurants.
John has been interest in organic and local food for many years and this passion has led him to
support local food at Enzo, Bubbalas and Spiritus, the three restaurants he owns.

Last year, Enzo showed particular attention to local food and showcased a variety of local
ingredients through the work of Chef Jeremiah Reardon who is a french trained chef dedicated to
seasonal, Provencal menus. Some of the farms included in this effort were Cape Cod Organics,
Cedar Spring Farm, Checkerberry Farm and E and T farms. Along with local vegetables, Chef
Reardon utilized a variety of free-range organic meats through out the summer especially organic
poultry (Guini Hen) and of course the capes freshest seafood. This all was complimented by the use
of organic Massachusetts flour, various organic oils (truffle, olive, etc.) and an organic European
butter.

This upcoming year, Enzo will continue to work with local food and farms and John Yingling will
most likely pick his own eggplants or Swiss chard in the vegetables beds behind is house.

 How On Earth is an organization which seeks to reestablish the diverse agricultural use of our
remaining farmlands and the vibrant economy that accompanies quality local food production. The
goal is to redevelop the local food supply, the local agricultural economy, and reconnect local people
to the land. Relying less on food sourced from around the globe, and more on locally grown food is
healthier for you and the planet. Supporting local agriculture has benefits that enhance the quality of
life both locally and globally.

We must now teach each other and our children how to share and nurture the wonderful natural
resources that our planet has to offer. In 1859, author Douglas Jerrold wrote,

“Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a h and she laughs with a harvest.”

Two brothers totally dedicated to quality. That's the Mac's Seafood story. It started with Mac and
Alex Hay taking fishing trips with their grandfather off Truro when they were kids. They were taught
the importance of, and gained an appreciation for, locally caught, fresh seafood. Their passion grew
into a business. Those early experiences turned into a greater dedication to offering their customers
a brand of quality and freshness that's hard to find in today's flash-frozen world of seafood
production. Mac's is committed to supporting local fishermen, seeking distinctiveness, freshness,
and flavor. The family has believes strongly in knowing where your fish comes from and for this
reason, has an "unwavering standard of quality that you can see and taste."

Mac's consists of 2 restaurants in Wellfleet (one featuring fine coastal cuisine, sushi and raw bar,
the other, "hyper-casual" takeout fare), and two seafood stores: one behind the Wellfleet takeout
restaurant, and another in Truro Center. Below are the addresses:

you've tasted Ana Sortun's outrageously inventive food, including chickpea crêpe with smoked
cinnamon aioli, or lamb steak with Turkish spices & fava bean moussaka. Small producers comprise
the wine list at Oleana and are carefully chosen to complement the style of spice.

But a meal at Oleana isn't complete until you've tried one of pastry chef Maura Kilpatrick's desserts.
She is especially known for her homemade ice creams infused with an Eastern Mediterranean
sensibility, such as cocoa-rose ice cream with a date-rose truffle, or salted butter ice cream with a
pumpkin-brown butter crêpe.

Oleana's award-winning patio with a fountain, herb garden and fig tree is the perfect place to spend
a sultry summer evening. But winter nights in the dining room are pretty warm and welcoming too,
with Turkish carpets on the wall, a homey fireplace and banquette seating.

There's an open kitchen at Oleana, and it is tiny. But the flavors and creativity that emerge from it
are as big as they come.

T.W. Foods

Tel: 617.864.4745
tim@twfoodrestaurant.com
http://www.twfoodrestaurant.com

In the T.W. kitchen, we develop a style that is based on the purity of our ingredients. To us, this
means finding people who raise animals correctly and humanely, who forage our woods for
mushrooms and who grow herbs, flowers and vegetables for local consumption using old-fashioned
methods. As cooks, these raw materials are then manufactured into dishes using our knowledge,
artistic sensibilities and cultural traditions. We present a modern “cuisine classique” without the
limitations of preconceived flavor combination or construct.

An earlier part of this story is about France. The study of French cuisine gave me the technical
ability to transform my products into delicious food. In my early twenties, at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris,
I learned to make and taste a real cookie, a real croissant, a real baguette, a real pté. I had cooked
since I was a small child, often taking over my mother's kitchen (or at least trying to), but never had I
seen the correct methods executed by chefs who had studied food for centuries. In training through
many professional Parisian kitchens, I witnessed diligent order and execution, and the pursuit of a
highly nuanced food aesthetic.

Running in parallel to these concepts is a keen belief in freedom and individual expression. As a
cook this may mean taking a simple idea like fried soft shell crab and deciding to smoke it, in lieu of
serving it with its most common partner: bacon. Or doing a smoked foie gras crème brulée; or frying
our gnocchi with curry. In cooking, most things have been done before, but believing in them at that
moment, here today, at that dinner service, brings fresh life to the craft.

Wheatleigh is an internationally renowned restaurant located within the award-winning Wheatleigh
Hotel.

Wheatleigh's highly acclaimed Executive Chef Bryce Whittlesey serves contemporary American
cuisine inspired by classic French cooking. His menu reflects his strong commitment to using
all-natural and locally-raised products. All of his meats (chickens, heirloom ducks, guinea hens,
partridge, beef, lamb, turkey and venison) come from northeastern, family farmers who raise their
animals on pasture, and feed them no antibiotics or hormones. He uses chevre from a nearby
producer and also uses local free-range eggs.

Praise for Whittlesey's cuisine has been steady: Kate Sekules touted Whittlesey as the hotel's
œnew star• in her list of America's 50 Best Hotel Restaurants for Food & Wine. Tara Mandy, of New
York magazine, called his food œsuperb•; and Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report described the
cuisine as nothing short of œbrilliant.• Whittlesey was born and raised in South America, and he
mastered his skills under six-time James Beard Award nominee Frank McClelland, and with a group
of Michelin-starred chefs across France, Michel Rostang among them.

The picture displays one of Whittlesey's signature venison dishes.

The Co-op was started in 1977 as a small buying club in Turners Falls, with 15 to 20 families and
assistance from the FCAC. A small retail store was opened on Avenue A in 1980.

Membership and sales increased steadily and the space was outgrown in a year. In 1981 the Co-op
expanded into an adjacent storefront. Growth continued until the mid-eighties when sales leveled
off. Rent continued to increase and the decision was made to move into downtown Greenfield. in
April 1987, the Co-op moved into the Chapman Street store where sales grew 70% in the first year
and continued to grow at a steady pace to reach a sales level of $500,000 in Fiscal Year 1993.

In the November 1993, the move into the new store on Main Street was accomplished. Sales
increased dramatically in the year following the move, and have continued to increase since then.

 How On Earth is an organization which seeks to reestablish the diverse agricultural use of our
remaining farmlands and the vibrant economy that accompanies quality local food production. The
goal is to redevelop the local food supply, the local agricultural economy, and reconnect local people

life both locally and globally.

resources that our planet has to offer. In 1859, author Douglas Jerrold wrote,

Plum Produce, a bright little neighborhood shop, can be found next door to The Butcher Shop and
across the street from B&G Oysters, Ltd. in Boston's South End neighborhood. Opened by chef
Barbara Lynch in the fall of 2006, Plum Produce is filled with both familiar and more unique varieties
of fruits and vegetables as well as a myriad of fresh herbs, house-made confitures, jellies and
pickled vegetables and even chocolate bars made by the No.9 Park pastry chef!

For the beautiful endive enjoyed at a favorite bistro or perfect heirloom tomats, a year round source
is here. Barbara decided to open Plum Produce after realizing how difficult it was, as a consumer, to
consistently find excellent and varied produce. Now home cooks have the same access as chefs to
beautiful, fresh and hard-to-find fruits, vegetables and herbs. From basics like endive and fingerling
potats to things like pluots and rose petals, the shop is filled with an ever-changing seasonal
selection from Barbara's favorite local farmers.

Contact: Stephen Verrill

Verrill Farm is operated as a partnership between Stephen and Joan Verrill and daughter Jennifer
Verrill Faddoul. Our farm consists of about 200 acres in Concord and Sudbury. One hundred acres
are prime farmland and 100 acres are wildlife habitats, woodlands, and wetlands. Steve's father and
mother moved to Concord in 1918 and started a successful dairy business.

In 1957, upon graduation from Cornell University, Steve assumed operation of the farm. In 1982,
after years of planning and negotiations, about 200 acres were placed under an Agricultural
Preservation Restriction, thus preventing development of this land. This long term commitment gave
sharper focus to our agricultural enterprises.




                                                                                                  Page 244
massachusetts guide: stores

In 1990, the dairy herd was sold and plans began to replace the existing tent retail space with a new
farm stand, which was built in 1995. Our location at 11 Wheeler Rd. in Concord now includes retail
space for produce, specialty foods and gifts, and a large kitchen/bakery providing high quality baked
goods, entrees, homemade soups, and salads.

Both our produce stand and kitchen are fully functional and we are looking forward to a 2009 filled
with our popular Festivals, cooking classes and special holiday menus. Our site has three useful
pages for you to stay informed about what's happening at Verrill Farm. The Current Events page is
updated often and includes many useful details on events, what's new from the kitchen and local
crops in season. The Events & Festivals page is our calendar for 2009 and third is the Verrill Farm
Blog. Please note, we always recommend checking for schedule changes before coming to events.

Back in 1980, Whole Foods started out with one small store in Austin, Texas. Today, we're the
world's leader in natural and organic foods, with more than 270 stores in North America and the
United Kingdom.

Who are we? Well, we seek out the finest natural and organic foods available, maintain the strictest
quality standards in the industry, and have an unshakeable commitment to sustainable agriculture.

Around here, we often talk about our mission in terms of Whole Foods - Whole People - Whole
Planet. Basically, we think these elements all play a huge role in our success.

Whole Foods - We search for the highest quality, least processed, most flavorful and natural foods
possible because we believe that food in its purest state - unadulterated by artificial additives,
sweeteners, colorings and preservatives - is the best tasting and most nutritious food there is.

Whole People - Our people are our company. They are passionate about healthy food and a healthy
planet. They take full advantage of our decentralized, self-directed team culture and create a
respectful workplace where people are treated fairly and are highly motivated to succeed.

Whole Planet - We are committed to helping take care of the world around us, and our active
support of organic farming and sustainable agriculture helps protect our planet. And while we assist
our global neighbors through our Whole Planet Foundation's micro-lending operations, we also step
out the back door of each of our stores to support food banks, sponsor neighborhood events and
donate to local non-profit groups.

OUR MISSION: To provision, serve and connect people through a thriving cooperative business.

To achieve and support our mission, Wild Oats embraces the following Statement of Values:
We recognize that our members guide the cooperative
We recognize and respect the diversity of our members
We support local production
We support environmental sustainability
We promote social responsibility
We encourage other cooperative ventures
We foster a sense of community concerned with consumer empowerment, food choice, and
education
We continue to be a comfortable, friendly place to shop and work
We operate using sound business practices in order to provide quality products at a fair price
We abide by and foster the principles in the Statement of Cooperative Identity adopted by the
International Cooperative Alliance

   Wild Oats Market is an independent, member-owned, cooperative-based whole foods market that
buys extensively from local and regional natural and organic food producers. One need not be a
member to shop at Wild Oats, although membership offers several benefits.

   The market carries a wide selection of organic and naturally-made products, including meats,
eggs, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, breads, pastas, oils, cereals, juices and chocolate. Wild
Oats Market also carries healthful supplements and personal care products, as well as
environmentally-friendly household supplies and books, candles and gifts.




                                                                                                 Page 255

   Although the first Wild Oats storefront opened in 1982, our beginnings as a neighborhood co-op
date back to 1975, when the Central Williamstown Food Cooperative (CWFC), a preorder food
buying co-op, was formed. Interest in the preorder co-op grew steadily, and in 1979, the group hired
a part-time coordinator to help manage the needs of its growing membership. At that time, the co-op
also moved its distribution site to a location that provided storage space for a small inventory.

   In the summer of 1982, a storefront location became available at the Colonial Shopping Center in
Williamstown and on December 15, 1982, Wild Oats opened its doors to the public.

   Wild Oats moved to its present location at 320 Main Street in 2005. Our new location, just
outside of downtown Williamstown on Route 2, not only gives us more room to offer members and
customers a greater variety of healthy, delicious food, but also more options on how to use our
space, since we own our building. For example, we were able to create a café in front of our store,
where customers can enjoy a cup of tea or a meal.

    Since moving to our new location, we've added a bakery, a grab n' go deli and a hot foods bar.
Our hot foods bar is open daily for lunch and dinner. The menu, which changes daily, features
international dishes, favorites such as pizza and Greek spinach pie, and classics such as roast
chicken and lasagna. Our grab n' go deli stocks a variety of fresh, healthy options for vegans and
non-vegans who enjoy the convenience of prepared foods. In our grab n' go section you will find
sandwiches, salads, heat-and-serve items, hot and chilled soups, along with cold drinks and snacks.

   The Wild Oats Bakery sells fresh-baked breads and pastries daily. Our breads include rustic
breads, French breads and baguettes, sourdough breads, challah and many other varieties. We
also offer freshly baked cookies, cupcakes and scones, Fair Trade coffee and a variety of teas.

   Want to try an item, but concerned about the ingredients? We are happy to tell you the
ingredients used to make any of our prepared foods, and whenever possible we list the ingredients
on the item's packaging. Our vegan items are clearly marked. If you have a question, please don't
hesitate to ask!

Sample Our Fresh, Local Fruits and Vegetables

 At Wild Oats, we are fortunate to be located near many local farmers and food producers. We have
relationships with many of the local producers; and as a result we are able to offer locally grown
produce on a regular basis, in addition to locally made cheeses, yogurt, milk and other dairy items.
We also stock locally produced eggs and locally produced, grass-fed beef and poultry.

Wild Oats is located on Route 2 in Williamstown, Massachusetts, not far from Williams College,
Mass MoCA and the Clark Art Institute. Click here for directions to our store.

At River Rock Farm, we raise our own beef cattle and sell USDA inspected, natural, aged beef to
retail customers and restaurants. We raise livestock in ways that promote their health and
well-being, as well as that of our customers. Our cattle are raised in pastures, rather than in feedlots.
Feeding animals in pastures, with trees for shade and protection from the elements, room to roam
so that the cattle can spread out, short grass for keeping the livestock cool in the summer, and fresh
water, virtually eliminates disease problems in the herd. We do not use artificial growth hormones,
growth stimulants, or artificial or antibiotic feed additives.

Our beef is available year-round at the farm (click here for visiting info) and through our home and
office delivery service, providing service via our own trucks to the Boston-area,
Northampton/Amherst area, and many other areas in Massachusetts (click here for ordering info).
During the spring, summer, and fall, you can find us at Massachusetts farmers' markets. See our
(schedule) for dates and times.
