These growers don’t pollute our soil and water with toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and help build the soil to ensure that organic farming can continue for generations.

Top Recipes of 2016

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Jan 1, 2017 12:30:00 PM

There's no doubt about it, the Boston Organics Community sure ate well in 2016. Our farm partners and other suppliers kept us in fresh fruits and vegetables all year long, and it was a joy to see the shift from citrus and root crops in the winter to tomatoes and stone fruit in the summer, and to enjoy all the delicious produce in between.

To start 2017 off on the right foot, we decided to share our  top-clicked recipes of the past year, to offer the opportunity to reprise tasty favorites or to find new inspiration for the year ahead.

With changing seasons and ever-colder weather, this is also a time for turning inward, for reflection, and maybe there are surprises to be found there too. At the very least, there may be a surprise inside your Boston Organics box – in the form of new produce and add-ons.

Fresh from the Farm: Opposites Attract

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Sep 19, 2016 12:31:05 AM

This Thursday, September 22 is the autumn equinox, when day and night are the same length. (Approximately. We're mostly interested in the poetics.)  This event marks the beginning of fall, and the ever-decreasing daylight as we head toward the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. The balance of light and dark at the equinox got us thinking about other opposing pairs. Read on to see how we're bringing together all sorts of opposites in the kitchen using produce from this week's  boxes.
