Westboro’s Nourse Farm’s Veg Out Food Trailer has opened its second season and offers a takeaway menu that includes salads, soups, sandwiches, smoothies and snacks made from scratch. These foods are fresh and healthy food grown on the farm. 140 acres of family farm.
Catherine Nourse, the founder of Veg Out, said that the food trailer parked next to the Farm Store served the first customers in May and started harvesting asparagus early. Nourse said that the farm’s latest vegetable became a hit, especially in the food trailer, which was transformed into the age of asparagus soup.
Moira Healy is the new culinary creator of the gourmet trailer, bringing more than 30 years of culinary experience to the industry. Nourse described Healy as “a great person and a master of cooking”.
“My career has been working in the food service and hospitality industry,” Healy said, “and decided to change the direction slightly. Plant-based and sustainability are trends in the food industry, and I like working with Catherine to help introduce more The idea of food choices. I like to think of it as a new challenge.”
The June strawberry season introduced strawberry mango salsa and two cups of coconut milk smoothies in the food trailer. Pretty in Pink combines strawberries, rhubarb and mangoes, while Strawberry Na-Na combines strawberries and bananas.
The good news is that the strawberry picking season at Nourse Farm has started well and has expanded. According to North, a registered dietitian and part-time teacher/nutrition coordinator at Worcester Queens Gamund Community College, strawberries should be available before July 4. She definitely does what she says and helps others enjoy life through healthy food.
FYI: Nourse’s husband Timothy Nourse, David and Hazel Nourse’s sons, work in the family business. The farm manager Jonathan Nourse (Jonathan Nourse) is his uncle.
Last season, Nourse told us that the plant-based concept of the food trailer had a “nutritional education side and a smile.” She said that there will be no changes in 2021, adding that the food trailer staff known as “plant promoters” have resumed work. “We are lucky to have them,” said “Chief Vegetable” Nourse. Nourse is very humorous, which is clearly reflected in the names she gives to her dishes, such as How Ya Bean Burger and Up-Beet Burger. She likes puns!
The farm has received huge community support. In response to “customer requests,” Nourse added several new picnic tables and umbrellas next to the food trailer. Accept online meal pickup orders. Check www.noursefarm.com for the history of the farm and subscribe to the Farm Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. (For reference only: the summer CSA is full, but you can find information about the October fall CSA.)
Nourse Farm grows more than 40 kinds of fruits and vegetables, and the crop supply changes every month.
Nourse said that the farm’s blueberry schedule is after July 4, “probably closer to mid-July”, and he expects the crops to be ready in time for the farm celebrations this month.
Taste of the Harvest is open to the public and is scheduled to take place from 1pm to 4pm on July 18th. The focus will be on the farm that celebrates its 300th anniversary next year.
The delicious and nutritious blueberries in the food trailer this month will feature smoothies, in addition to a new blueberry balsamic vinegar that can be topped on fresh salads. The Farm Store will sell homemade fresh blueberry pie. Nourse said visitors to the store are looking forward to seasonal fruit pies and other desserts made on site. Personally: A friend’s husband co-owned a popular Worcester bakery, and she said that when she was on the farm, she found the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies “irresistible.”
The farm’s own cut flower field opens this month. For optional information, please call (508) 366-2644.

The Nourse Farm at 80 Jasper St. has a self-service information trail that gives visitors the opportunity to walk in the fields and learn about the surroundings. It takes “approximately 20 minutes” to walk a half mile along the dirt road.
The cost is $25 per person, with admission stickers, including food, live music, etc. The Table Hoppin column will list participants close to the August date.
In addition, Roger Bachour is looking forward to the opening of his new company Meraki Café at 274 Shrewsbury Street in August. The former Dark Rose Saloon space is being renovated, and Bachour hopes that the cafe will open at Taste of Shrewsbury Street. He said that before that, he will go to the Worcester Licensing Board.
According to Bachour and his wife Joanna Bachour, the cafe will serve desserts, not meals.
Bachour owns the Boardroom Kitchen & Bar at 139 Water Street in Worcester and the Whiskey Lounge at 316 Main Street in Worcester. He has been in the hotel industry for more than 25 years.
