Maine Wild Blueberries - They don't call them wild for nothing

Posted by Boston Organics on Aug 28, 2017 7:47:38 AM

The organic Maine wild blueberries from Burke Hill Farm are finally in! But maybe only for this week. Maine wild blueberries are the best kind of blueberries and one of the true highlights of summer in New England. They’re not like the ones you find at the supermarket. They’re smaller and have an intense flavor. They’re amazing and great for baking, making smoothies or sprinkling on your breakfast cereal.

Thank You For Your Support During 2009

Posted by Boston Organics on Dec 29, 2009 4:59:15 PM

2009 has been a great year for local food. At Boston Organics, we were able to more than double our direct purchasing of Massachusetts’ and regionally grown organic produce. We were able to do this primarily through pro-actively working with select farms. Because of your support we were able to accurately place and in some cases pre-pay for many of this past season’s crops as early as last winter. Many growers have taken notice and recognize Boston Organics to be a meaningful and reliable business partner. We expect to offer even more local and regional fruits and veggies in 2010. Ultimately, it is your underlying support that makes this all possible. We sincerely thank you for helping make 2009 a successful year. We look forward to serving you in 2010!

Eating real food is a lifestyle

Posted by Boston Organics on Jul 31, 2009 7:03:10 AM

Michael Pollan’s most recent book In Defense of Food and article in the New York Times hit on a key but underlying theme about what Boston Organics is partially about; encouraging and supporting a lifestyle of eating and preparing simple ingredients. While living in San Francisco from 1995-2002, I underwent a lifestyle transformation. Part of that transformation included eating more healthy foods thanks to a home delivery service called Planet Organics. I had always considered myself a healthy person that exercised regularly and ate a balanced diet.

Broccoli - Total Crop Failure

Posted by Boston Organics on Jun 18, 2009 2:27:14 AM

We just learned that Rick Pedersen of Pedersen Farm lost his entire crop of broccoli for the season. This is the same farm that provided that awesome asparagus the past 5-6 weeks. There were two main contributing factors. Early in the season there were heavy rains that damaged many of the seedlings. This was followed by exceptionally hot and dry weather which attracted a blight of flea beetles; unfortunately there are few effective organic controls. Had he been farming conventionally, Rick would have had more options to save the crop. One can imagine the non organic options, although effective are probably more toxic.
