Fresh From the Farm: Produce Rainbow

Posted by Miles Douglass on Aug 14, 2017 9:48:08 AM

They often say that before the food gets to our mouths that we eat with our eyes. All summer we have been talking about the many different local greens but now we get to talk about some different colors, blue, orange, red and yellow. These colors will be highlighted by the new and exciting local fruits and vegetables we have this week.  Local vegetables have been very exciting so far this summer and they continue to be.

Fresh From the Farm: Game of Produce

Posted by Miles Douglass on Aug 7, 2017 8:47:23 AM

We truly love the long summer here at Boston Organics, and not just because of the beautiful weather and enjoying all of the fun things to do around the city, or even the return of our staff's favorite television series. Summer is when we get to really showcase all the amazing farms that we have alliances with. Unlike the characters in Game of Thrones we dont have to fear that winter is coming just yet, so lets continue to enjoy the fruits of our long summer. Much like the airing of a new episode of Game of Thrones every week we get excited for the weekly deliveries from our farm partners.
