We proudly partner with other small businesses that produce items to compliment our offerings.
Labyrinth Brewing Company serves as hosts for our Manchester CSA pickup location. The three friends who grew up together in Manchester, joined forces to open this amazng space in August of 2018. What started as a "cold call" email to ask if they would be interested in serving as a CSA location has turned into a wonderful partnership and friendship.
Adam Delaura, Sean Gaura, and Chris Wallum created a fantastic hand-hewn space in the old Cheney Mill Complex, located one block off Main Street. This historic structure provides a real sense of place - there is no other place like it! Well connected to the community, Labyrinth has created a hub for friendship, learning, expression, giving and family. We are very proud to call them our home away from home.

Each season we offer our members the option of purchasing locally-grown beef, raised by Jonathan Eddy at New Boston Beef. Jonathan is a young second-generation farmer. Located in the Fabyan section of Thompson, he raises Simmental cattle outside on pasture during the warmer months and throughout the winter on hay that he cuts himself. These animals are considered grass-fed and grass-finished, meaning they do not eat any grain (corn). Cattle are ruminants and evolved to eat grass. Jonathan maintains his herd on this natural diet, which results in exceptionally high-quality meat.
Members are given the option of purchasing a bulk quantity of beef once during the summer and once during the fall. Price and quantity of meat will be determined by the number of members splitting an animal.
Founded in 2002, Pat’s Pastured provides the highest quality pasture-raised and grass-fed meats, raised by a young first-generation farmer in East Greenwich Rhode Island. Their goal is to provide their livestock with a life that allows them to express their natural instincts fully in a pasture environment. That means that the pigs get to root, run and play; the chickens get to peck, scratch and crow; the turkeys gobble and strut; and the cows eat grass outside, NOT corn in confinement. In addition to grass, the animals get a supplemental feed that is non-GMO (genetically modified organisms) which is much more difficult and expensive for a small farm operation to source. Cloverleigh Farm wants to support this!
Pat's Pastured supplies our interested members with turkey for their holiday tables.
