Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers - August 2019

Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 16, 2019 7:05:00 AM

We know you value organic produce for the benefits it has both on your health and the environment. But as a busy Bostononian, you might not have time to visit the source -- the farms. At Boston Organics, we also value transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable operations.

Every season we like to visit growers that are a part of our network. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationships, but it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and see how they continue to make positive changes on their farms.

Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to western Massachusetts for a few of these visits. Here’s how our day went.

How local is your box this week?

Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 6, 2019 10:32:34 AM

Our customers do not need to choose the Dogma box to support local farmers. Though there is no legal definition for the term "local", at Boston Organics we take a more regional approach by sourcing much of our local produce from the northeast region (Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine).

Let's take a peak into our Standard and Specialty boxes this week to find out which have the most local produce!

Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers

Posted by Boston Organics 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.
