Fresh from the Farm: Getting Cozy with Cool Weather Crops

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Oct 2, 2016 2:18:00 PM

After a long, hot summer, the cooler temperatures of the last week have offered something of a reprieve, and an opportunity to pull out our fall jackets, flannel shirts, and woolly socks. It's also a cue for the return of some of our favorite cool (though not yet cold) weather food and drink. Relish the beauty of October in New England with local fruit and vegetables delivered to your door.

Fresh from the Farm: Crate of Debate

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Sep 25, 2016 11:41:00 AM

Tonight is the first debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This much-anticipated face-off and the hotly contested primaries have dominated the news and conversation for months. Here at Boston Organics, we’re counteracting the stress, tension and noise of the election the best way we know how—cooking  with fresh, organic ingredients. A side benefit of this method of coping is that it leaves the Boston Organics Community well-nourished and ready to be engaged citizens, whether by simply voting or getting involved in the campaign for a specific candidate or ballot question.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Though January may be a month of cold, quiet and subdued colors, the produce Boston Organics is delivering this week didn't get the message. This week's boxes include tasty treasures like crisp butter lettuce and intensely red blood oranges. We are grateful for all the nutrients packed into these brightly-colored foods, helping keep us healthy and well even when it's gray outside.

It's now December, just weeks away from the official start of winter. Hanukkah's begun. Holiday shopping is in full swing. And an onslaught of Christmas carols ushering you through every public space is unavoidable. So does all of this mean that we're officially finished with the local growing season? Nope. Not even close.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Author Faith Baldwin once painted a rich portrait of autumn, describing how it "[burns] brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees." The same goes for the fields in which our farm partners' crops grow. And this week we're taking some of fall's fiery enchantment, packing it up and bringing it to your doorstep.

Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers

Posted by Eric Siegel on Sep 7, 2015 9:37:54 AM

How much do you know about where your food comes from?

If you buy and eat organic food, you already know quite a lot. For instance, you know that it was grown without synthetic fertilizers and wasn’t sprayed with harmful chemical pesticides. You also know that there are no genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in your food and that the animals that produced your eggs and milk weren’t fed antibiotics. Instead, they were raised in safe, humane conditions.

But as a busy Boston resident, you don’t have time to visit all of the organic farms that grow your food. That’s part of our job, to increase transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable sources.

We work with a vast network of organic farms, and every season we like to go visit a few of them. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationship with these organic farmers, it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and learn new things about modern organic farming practices.

Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to southern Vermont and central Massachusetts to visit some of our local farm partners there. Here’s a short recap from each visit.

Fresh from the Farm

Posted by Eric Siegel on Aug 30, 2015 9:27:00 AM
A weekly update from Boston Organics.

You can never have too many organic tomatoes.

We adopted that motto after a fungal disease wiped out most of Atlas Farm’s tomato fields last year. But this year our farmers have used all of their organic farming prowess to protect their tomatoes from late blight and they have a bumper crop to share with the Boston Organics Community.

So we’re putting our tomăto motto to the test this week with oodles of heirlooms from Atlas and juicy Roma tomatoes from Blue Ox Farm in almost all of the boxes.
