I think it’s pretty great to discover more New England seafood making its way to the Monadnock Region. And as part of upping our farm store game, we’re delighted to be able to stock select items in our farm store and support regional fisher persons. My kids love making the batter and seeing the transformation. And they definitely like a meal with lots of components!
