Farm Updates and Local Offerings - Week of March 15, 2021

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 16, 2021 7:30:00 AM

We hope everyone was able to enjoy last weekend's gorgeous weather! As unpredictable as the New England weather can be, spring is just around the corner. Our local farmers spent the warm weather prepping fields to get ahead for the next harvest

What's Up At Kitchen Garden Farm

Tim Wilcox at Kitchen Garden Farm (Sunderland, MA) spent the weekend with his crew in the greenhouse and outside on the fields. Did you know that Kitchen Garden grows their own ingredients for their salsas, sauces, and spices (chili flakes, chili powder, spicy smoked paprika, sweet smoked paprika)?

Greenhouse. Seeds getting a head start in the greenhouse. Once big enough, they'll be planted in the high tunnel or outside fields!

Babies of Brookford Farm

Brookford Farm is over 35 acres of biologically diverse produce. The advantages of having so much land means they can rotate which fields are producing crops and which are resting for a growing season. While fields rest, Brookford farm animals graze it, composted manure is spread, and cover crop are grown -- promoting diverse soil nutrients. Speaking of the farm animals there are new farm babies! Once these babies are young adults, they'll also be grazing on fields.

Certified Sprouts

Bob and Barbara Sanderson founded Jonathan’s Sprouts in 1976, and have been spreading the word not only on the nutritional benefits of sprouts but also the food safety integral to their quality. Sprouted garbanzo beans will go perfectly with our Red Pepper Hummus in Cucumber Cups.
