A weekly update from Boston Organics.

It's official: We are in the best part of autumn. A highly sensory season, fall is filled with spicy smells, chilly breezes and the sounds of nature quieting in preparation for winter. Let's not forget the flavors, though, of sweet leafy greens, satisfying root veggies and hearty squash. It's a good week to get excited about the season, because fall is bursting out of every box.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Who doesn't love this time of year?! While we're looking forward to late fall and all of its leaf-crunching walks, crisp, starry skies, pumpkin carving and warm, spiced beverages, early fall is where it's at. Right now is the perfect time to enjoy gorgeous weather, lighter city crowds and a nearly inexhaustible variety of local, organic produce.

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.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

A thinning word-of the-day calendar and temperatures that regularly dip below freezing are sure signs that winter is approaching, but one conversation with any of our farmers is all you need to confirm that autumn is on its way out the door.

How to Pick the Perfect Pear

Posted by Eric Siegel on Nov 30, 2014 3:30:07 AM

Timing is everything when eating a pear. Eat one before it's ripe and it will be crunchy but devoid of flavor. Eat one past its peak and the mushy texture will ruin the whole experience.
