Boston Organics is thrilled to announce that we now offer electronic gift cards!
Halloween is still a week away, but here at Boston Organics, we’re feeling some anticipatory giddiness at the prospect of spooky fun and, we’ll admit it, cauldrons of sweets. But you don’t have to follow our bad example—there are plenty of tasty ways to incorporate fruits and veggies into your Halloween party or ghostly goody bag. Your green Boston Organics box is full of delicious produce that you can turn into tricks or treats (or both) depending on your kitchen’s magic. It may even help change your ideas of what counts as a treat.
You asked so we deliver! Boston Organics is excited to announce that we are now bringing fresh, organic produce to three new areas: Saugus, Lynnfield and Dedham.
We adore this video produced by The Clean Food Club's Alice Katherine Richardson. It charmingly encompasses our mission to provide sustainably sourced organic food to the people of Greater Boston.
Fall is a season for bowls. Bowls of chips and guacamole for game day, bowls of veggies passed at family dinners and bottomless bowls of soup. Make sure you always have the ingredients on hand to fill all of your bowls with the Boston Organics produce and add-ons delivered right to your door.
October is both Fair Trade Month and Non-GMO Month – a reminder for us to pause our busy lives for one moment and to reflect on the current state of our food system. With the school year in full swing and the holiday season quickly approaching, this is a good opportunity to think critically and learn more about the food we eat and where it comes from!
It seems like fall arrived in Boston overnight last week, touching the trees with splashes of gold, turning the sky a clear, cloudless, brilliant blue. The crisp, dry air has us breathing freely, taking a moment to absorb the rich colors of the season. Those same colors can be found in boxes, as Boston Organics brings autumn to your doorstep this week.
It’s October which means crisp, cool days, changing leaves and all the trappings of Halloween: ghost stories, haunted houses and cobwebs draped on front porches. Even if you can see through a costumed zombie or don’t feel any need to avoid haunted spots on All Hallow's Eve, the ghosts of wasted food may pop up to spook you.
Food waste is a significant problem: about 1.3 billion tons of food is wasted worldwide every year. Don’t be haunted by food that you throw away. Check out these four scary facts about food waste, and learn what you can do to avoid it (no witch’s brew required).
The autumn season is getting into full swing here in New England. The falling leaves will soon color the ground and the air is so crisp you can touch it. We're already seeing some varieties of organic squash coming from local farms. As the fall air freezes and autumn turns to winter, we say goodbye to our summer squashes and hello to the many varieties of winter squash. Study up on all the squash varieties you may find in your Boston Organics boxes, so you can make the most of these versatile vehicles of flavor.
After a long, hot summer, the cooler temperatures of the last week have offered something of a reprieve, and an opportunity to pull out our fall jackets, flannel shirts, and woolly socks. It's also a cue for the return of some of our favorite cool (though not yet cold) weather food and drink. Relish the beauty of October in New England with local fruit and vegetables delivered to your door.
