I don't know about you, but in a previous blog, I wrote about how the FDA has called the "all clear" to buy/eat romaine lettuce again, but they haven't yet found the source of the e-coli outbreak!  Sorry, but that's not good enough for me, so, being the good locavore that I am, I thought I should recommend some fantastic farm stands all over New England that I have shopped at and will do so even more with this latest news:


Mann Orchards:  Located in Methuen, Mass., it's a little bit of a drive, but the pies are worth it!

Cider Hill Farm:  This one in Mass too - in Amesbury, Mass.  I went there for apple picking this past Fall.  (I know it's still fall, but c'mon... there's snow on the ground.  It's winter.)

Lull Farm:   My hometown farm in Hollis, NH has always been near and dear to my heart and has expanded so much when I was a kid.  The farmstand is filled with lovely fruits and veggies - all grown locally.

Tendercrop Farm:  In Dover, NH and Newbury and Wenham, MA.  I probably spend the most money here lately because I work in Dover.  For Thanksgiving, I dropped a Benjamin on stuff from here and I'll do it again. It was delicious.

Fiddlehead Farms - Another local Dover farm.  Love this place too!  The deli is deeeelish!

Green Spark Farm:  When I lived in Cape Elizabeth, Maine, I could walk to this farm.  It's one of the things I miss about living in Maine.  The organic greens could not be beat!

Mack's Apples:  Located in Londonderry, NH and although Mack's primary crop is apples, I had to put this one on the list.  I got married in one of the orchards and my good friends own the farm.  They are amazing people steeped in NH history.

Don't risk it.  If you didn't see a farmstand close to you, I assure you, there is one close enough and worth the drive.

E-coli, e-coli, e-coli.... Romaine.....
