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!

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!

Remembering Labor Day and Thanking Food Workers

Posted by Renae Cairns on Aug 25, 2018 4:23:00 PM

Labor Day is quickly approaching. For many of us that means a day off from work, for some it’s considered the unofficial end of summer, and in an era past it was also the day you packed up all of your white clothes. This Labor Day we're making it one where we remember some of the origins of the labor movement in the United States and the folks of the Pullman Strike for which the holiday was established.
