A Better Way to CSA
We find New England's best local ingredients and deliver them to your door, every week.

Support Small, Local Farms and Food Purveyors

We support small, local farmers and food purveyors while minimizing waste (and maximizing taste).

We are flexible. You pay and choose the items in your subscription week-to-week. If you're traveling or already have enough food, you can skip weeks or cancel your subscription as needed.

We're also happy to help you find the right mix of products for your personal eating and cooking style. Send us an email--we'd love to hear from you!

Family Dinner on New England Living!

Watch us tour Clark Farm in Carlisle, MA with farmer Andrew Rogers on New England Living and CBS Boston!

"Working with Erin and Family Dinner, I have a guaranteed price that we talk about in the off-season and then I'm producing for her... It's a much more secure financial model for me... There's no waste. That's the beauty of her model... I can plant, harvest, and pack. She's there to pick it up and there's very little waste that occurs."

- Andrew Rogers, Clark Farm

"Sustainability is core to the Family Dinner mission. There's something for everybody in the story of local food, whether your primary concern is the environment, the ethical treatment of animals, workers rights or just having simply delicious tasting food, there's something for everyone."

- Erin Baumgartner, CEO Family Dinner

Mushroom Puns!

Mushroom Puns!

"Mushrooms are a fascinating crop! They’re not plants—they’re members of the fungus family. Unlike wild mushrooms that spring up only when seasonal conditions are ripe, cultivated mushrooms can be grown indoors year-round, provided the climate conditions are right.

Tuna at Sunset

Tuna at Sunset

For our side we will be stealing from the menu of the Sunset Club in Newburyport.  This is the newest gem from the great folks who own Trina's, Paddle Inn, and Parlor Sports (the bar responsible for the genesis of Family Dinner! We spent WAY too much time there 4 years ago, noodling over ideas, crushing cheeseburgers, and planning out this crazy venture). The Sunset Club is a beautiful spot to sip rose, delight in delicious nosh, and watch the sun go down. If you have a viciously competitive streak, they have all the yard games you need to ruin your friendships while you sip cold beers in the sunshine.

How It Works

Step 1: Choose your share (plus any add-ons). There's no commitment.  Pay week-to-week and skip or cancel as needed.

Step 2: Let us do the work.  We carefully curate each week’s share and place orders with local farmers and food purveyors.  Shares can contain protein, dairy, eggs, produce, grains, and there's always a treat.  Let us know if you have any allergies or aversions, and we'll make substitutions.

Step 3: Receive and enjoy!  You receive an email on Friday with a list of ingredients and recipes. We deliver your order on Saturday or Tuesday. Cook, eat, and savor the delicious things you make.

Step 4: Share with friends and family! After every purchase, you'll receive an email with your unique referral code to share with your crew. They'll get 50% off their first order, and you'll get a discount code for 50% off a future order.

What is in a typical share?

Each share contains protein, fruits, veggies, and grains, tailored to your share type and size.  We are happy to accommodate your food allergies or aversions. 

Our blog, This Week's Food, captures the ingredients, farmers, and recipes that are featured in every week's share. 

Here's a shot of the Omnivore Whole Share that was delivered to our customers on August 1st, along with a list of ingredients:
