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!

Connect and Eat Local!

Check out these local Boston Food events! The Boston Organics team has compiled a list of local events hosted by organizations we support for you to connect with like-minded individuals. 

Boston Organics believes it is in everyone’s best interest to build a strong regional network of growers, distributors and retailers, and we think it's great that more and more people are getting on board with the local movement.

Building a healthy food system isn't a one-(wo)man job and requires constant communication between organizations. We put together this list of local events so you can collaborate, connect, and contribute to the local food system too! Check out these Spring events!

Thanking the hands that feed us

Posted by Renae Cairns on Jul 26, 2018 2:21:22 PM

Last week we shared a bit about what a local and sustainable food system means to us and farmers and farm workers are the bedrock of that supply chain. We want to take some time to celebrate and appreciate many of the growers and farm teams that allow us to do the work that we do and to enjoy some of the most delicious organic produce in the region.

Fresh From the Farm: What a fungi!

Posted by Coley Ward on Oct 2, 2017 9:46:49 AM

This week's box features shiitake mushrooms, which are crazy nutritious but also delicious. If you're a mushroom fan, shiitakes are likely one your list of favorites (they're so much more flavorful and complex than boring white button mushrooms!). You'll encounter shiitakes in various forms in a lot of Asian cuisine, like miso soup and many stirfries. Today we've got a recipe that calls for roasting the mushrooms and we think you're going to love it.

Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 11, 2017 9:40:46 AM

We may be moving into fall but that doesn’t mean that we are no longer getting new items from all of our wonderful farm partners.  We are in that perfect time where we get to enjoy the end of summer produce and the beginning of a whole new crop of vegetables. We are happy that we have wrapped up another successful summer here and are very excited to head into fall and see all the new items that we have to look forward to all fall.
