MEET THE FARMER'S

 

We'd like to introduce you to some of the local farmer's that we rely on at Fuse Bistro! We use their produce on our menu, in our cocktails and in our daily specials.

FARMER DAVE'S
Farmer Dave gives us the widest variety of produce, as his operation is the most vast of the farms that we use. We purchase tomatoes, squash, greens, corn, radishes, herbs, and many more items from him. About 95% of Farmer Dave's produce is grown without synthetic sprays.

MILL CITY GROWS
The newest operation we draw produce from is Mill City Grows. They focus mostly on educating the city's youth on how to grow food for sustainability. We get lots of greens and herbs from them. Mill City Grows improves physical health, economic independence and environmental sustainability in Lowell through increased access to land, locally-grown food and education.

Networking Success Story - Joan Parcewski Woods Real Estate

As a Realtor I am always looking for new ways to spread the word about what I do and, in particular, the niche market that I serve (the senior market aka baby boomer generation).  There is no better way, no more personal way, than through face to face networking. Being part of Friends of Kevin has helped me to reach more people and tell my story to a wider audience than other networking that I have tried. 

Kevin's events are run very differently than others around.  Because he makes it a point to know the participants in the room, he also goes out of his way to ensure that people who should meet have that opportunity.  As a result it is a win for everyone.

His events have allowed me to not only meet people who are a good fit to help my seniors but also, at times, to help some of the organizations that I am proud to be a part of as well (eg Billerica Lions and the Billerica Health & Wellness Fair). 

I am very pleased that I made the decision to be part of Friends of Kevin and wish I had done it much sooner than I did.
