The Veg Out Food Trailer at Nourse Farm in Westboro is open for its second season, providing a take-out menu that’s filled with made-from-scratch salads, soups, sandwiches, smoothies and snacks that utilize the fresh, healthy food grown on the 140-acre family-owned farm.

Veg Out founder Catherine Nourse said the food trailer parked next to the Farm Store served its first customers in May, getting off to an early start with the asparagus harvest. The farm’s newest vegetable was an instant hit, especially at the food trailer where it was transformed into Age of Asparagus Soup, said Nourse.

Moira Healy is the food trailer’s new culinary creator, bringing more than 30 years of food experience to the business. Nourse describes Healy as a “fantastic person and culinary whiz.”

“I’ve spent my career working in the food service and hospitality industries,” said Healy, “and decided to change direction a little. Plant-based and sustainability is trending in the food industry, and I love the idea of working with Catherine to help introduce more food options. I like to think of it as a new challenge.”

What’s on the menu?

June strawberry season introduced a strawberry-mango salsa and two coconut milk smoothies to the food trailer. Pretty in Pink combined strawberries, rhubarb and mango, while Strawberry Na-Na teamed strawberries and banana.
