Whiting, also known as Silver Hake
, have softer flesh and are less flaky than other white fish such as Cod, Haddock, and Pollock. Mild and slightly sweet, the raw flesh is white to off-white, with a coarse, watery appearance. Hake can be substituted for many dishes calling for Pollock or Cod. Corned Hake
is a popular recipe in New England, or try it pan-fried Portuguese-style

CSF Spring SIGN-UPS happening now
Brasen Hill, the 244-acre farm in Barrington, NH, promotes health in their animals and fertility in their soil. As a diversified farm, they offer a vegetable CSA, a meat CSA (Pork, Chicken, Duck, Rabbit, Lamb, Goat), and an egg CSA. Everything is also available through farmer markets and their farm storm, opening this June.
- Humanely raised: The pigs spend their days rooting in the woodlot, wallowing in mud, and sunning themselves on the pasture.
- Rotating pastures = fresh grass to eat
- Chickens live in ‘chicken tractors’: mobile coops that are moved every morning to protect the coop from predators, allow access to the pasture and fresh air, while also protecting them from inclement weather.
- Crop rotation: The planned order of specific and different crops planted on the same field.
- Cover crops: Specific plants grown primarily for the benefit of the soil rather than the crop yield.
- Composted manure: Improves soil fertility and soil quality, and enhances populations of beneficial microorganisms in the soil.
Thank you, Brasen Hill Farm, for continuing to be one of our Pick-Up Locations!

CSA(F) stands for community-supported agriculture, or, in our case, community-supported fisheries (CSF).
Pay for a season’s worth of food to become a member and receive local, quality produce, poultry and/or seafood.
What It Means
- eating healthful foods and preparing them for your family
- supporting local farmers/fishermen and women
- being kind to our planet
- learning something new
- being adventurous in the kitchen, like trying underutilized fish in the name of sustainability
Getting food from a CSA(F) is different from going to a farmers market or using a grocery delivery service. As a CSA(F) member, you make a seasonal commitment to a small farmer/fisherman or woman in your area, and the produce/seafood is either delivered to your door or you pick it up at a local distribution center (We have Pick-Up Locations in NH, MA and ME). CSA(F) members take pleasure in knowing where and how their food is grown/caught and typically have an open line of communication with their farmer/fisherman or woman.
“Community-supported agriculture (fisheries) is all about relationships and feeding families,” said Simon Huntley, CEO of Small Farm Central, a company that provides marketing support for small farms and started CSA(F) Day. “CSA(F) farmers typically teach members what’s in season throughout the year, and help them appreciate and cook food to which they may not otherwise be exposed.”
According to Small Farm Central’s CSA Farming Annual Report, the most popular time to join a CSA each year is at the end of February. CSA Day serves to promote our local farmers and fishermen/women and support sustainable practices. Our sign-ups are happening now! If you like Seafood and want to support the families of our fishermen and women, check out WHAT WE OFFER this Spring!
