Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Mar 19, 2017 12:30:00 PM

Though there may still be remnants of icy cold snow on the ground this week, the produce in your Boston Organics box will remind you of the good things that come in this new season.

Fresh from the Farm: Staying Healthy

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Feb 6, 2017 8:48:20 AM

The days are getting longer, hinting at warmth and sunlight to come. In the meantime, however, we have many long cold days ahead of us, and are not quite through cold and flu season. Stay healthy for the remainder of the winter by getting enough rest, washing your hands thoroughly and by eating a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Nutritionists often recommend “eating the rainbow” to ensure that you are maintaining a healthy diet. The wide spectrum of color found in your Boston Organics box this week is sure to help you meet that goal and nourish you throughout the season, and the year.

Fresh from the Farm and Local Offerings

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on Mar 27, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Since the beginning of daylight savings time, longer days have mostly meant longer evenings. The lingering afternoon sun can create a sense of abundance, of light and of time. But it can also be an uncomfortable and awkward season, with unpredictable precipitation and scraps of warmth. How many layers do I need? Darn, should have brought an umbrella.

There's one thing you can count on in this mercurial in-between season: your Boston Organics box will keep things fun, fresh and delicious.

Early spring can be a time of waiting and excitement. Warm days are so close we can taste them and new plants stretch slowly above the soil before the real green explosion begins. It can also be a time for seeking, whether we're looking for the first tiny blooms or chocolate eggs hidden in the yard. Don't worry though, your Boston Organics boxes will still come right to your door, though they contain plenty of produce to get excited about.

Fresh from the Farm

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

For the next month, a very special astronomical phenomenon will be visible in the morning sky—from January 20 to February 20, all five visible planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn) can be viewed simultaneously in the wee hours of the morning. If you cast your sights a little closer to home, you may find a few especially bright points in your Boston Organics delivery this week too. We are excited to introduce two new items (Broccolini and kumquats), as well as see the return of Murcott mandarins. Unlike the five bright planets, which were last seen together fifteen years ago, we have only had to go without this tasty citrus since last winter.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Fruitcake, chestnuts and turkey are all commonly associated with Christmas feasts, but what about the New Year? In Spain, eating twelve white grapes at midnight is the preferred tradition, and in much of the Mediterranean, pomegranates are prized New Year’s fare to ensure fertility and abundance in the year ahead. Read on to see how to get your year off to a lucky and happy start with a little help from this week’s box.

Americans consider mangoes a rare delicacy, but they’re actually one of the most consumed fruits in the world. In fact, there’s a lot more to mangoes than meets the eye. That’s why Boston Organics is going “beneath the peel” to explore the amazing world of the mango.
