Haddock – Spring’s First Catch

Haddock post 2 (updated).jpg
Haddock is one of New England’s more commonly known fish. A cousin to the cod, haddock’s meat is white, with a slightly sweet taste and a flaky consistency. The flesh is firm and tender and can be cooked in a variety of ways, including in soups and chowders. Try it Pan-Seared or Baked!

White Hake – the cousin of Cod

White HakeA slender fillet, fresh White Hake has an off-white color that turns white when cooked. Often compared with Atlantic Cod, they have a mild flavor and a softer texture (read the full culinary profile). Try it Pan-Fried with Garlic and Pepper, or with Saffron and Orange sauce! Hake can also be baked in the oven.

SPRING CSF SIGN-UPS HAPPENING NOW!

Join Your Community

CSA(F) stands for community-supported agriculture, or, in our case, community-supported fisheries (CSF).

The Model

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!

Yellowtail Flounder

Yellowtail Flounder post 1

Yellowtail Flounder is one of the most popular of North Atlantic Flounders. As a Groundfish, they are flat and have eyes on the upper side of their body. Mildly sweet, fine and delicate, flounder is delicious pan-fried, baked, or simply broiled with a little lemon. Or, try pan-frying your flounder with egg batter and green garlic!
