Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers

Posted by Eric Siegel on Sep 7, 2015 9:37:54 AM

How much do you know about where your food comes from?

If you buy and eat organic food, you already know quite a lot. For instance, you know that it was grown without synthetic fertilizers and wasn’t sprayed with harmful chemical pesticides. You also know that there are no genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in your food and that the animals that produced your eggs and milk weren’t fed antibiotics. Instead, they were raised in safe, humane conditions.

But as a busy Boston resident, you don’t have time to visit all of the organic farms that grow your food. That’s part of our job, to increase transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable sources.

We work with a vast network of organic farms, and every season we like to go visit a few of them. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationship with these organic farmers, it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and learn new things about modern organic farming practices.

Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to southern Vermont and central Massachusetts to visit some of our local farm partners there. Here’s a short recap from each visit.

9/7-9/11

With dozens of acres of fields to tend to, our organic farm partners have very little time to rest during the height of the local season. Many of them will spend Labor Day weeding, harvesting and bringing their farm-fresh assortment of fruits and veggies to our warehouse so that tomorrow morning we can bring it all right to your doorstep.

So if you're enjoying a day off from work or school, we hope you'll take a moment to recognize all of the people who are working to keep our sustainable food system running smoothly.

8/31-9/4

Coming off a weekend with +85°F days, fall sounds more like a verb than an approaching season. And with many of our favorite summer foods still "growing strong," it sure doesn't taste like autumn yet.

But winds of change are in the air, and a few of the local farm partners that bring us the best organic fruits and veggies in the fall are starting to harvest fields that they planted earlier in the summer. While we anticipate a few more weeks of juicy heirloom tomatoes from Atlas Farm and delicious organic eggplants from Kitchen Garden Farm, the apple harvest is already underway at Dwight Miller and Son Orchards.
