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!

Jorge Sosa’s tortillas are a symbol of the modern American dream, undeniable – and delectably edible – proof that a community of caring individuals and socially responsible businesses can persevere in the face of tragedy.
