In this season of intense sun and heat, and equally intense storms, we just can’t do anything halfway. We get attached to special local items and want to eat them all the time, in everything. Read about this week’s seasonal favorites that we just can’t get enough of.
We wish all members of the Boston Organics Community a delicious and meaningful Memorial Day. With the holiday comes the official start of summer, which to us means the arrival of two awesome things: green leafies and grilling. This week marks the kick-off for local season with our first greens from Atlas Farms! Read on for suggestions for enjoying early summer's bounty, plus our favorite grill-ready recipes.
Happy National Bike to Work Week! This week, bicycle commuters, including a few Boston Organics employees, will celebrate the many benefits of cycling. If you see our cargo bike driver on the road, be sure to give him an extra friendly wave as he delivers your produce. Boxes this week are full of colorful produce, rivaling the brightest fluorescent bike attire. As the weather keeps getting better, we’re sure we’ll see more and more cyclists on the road. We want to keep all members of the Boston Organics Community powered up, regardless of how they choose to get around.
Though mushroom foragers may be out of luck as snow covers the treasures they seek, the Boston Organics Community need search no farther than their green boxes. This week we will be delivering delectable fungi from Mousam Valley Mushrooms of Springvale, Maine. The family-operated farm grows certified organic mushrooms in its converted historic dairy barn, where the farmers are able to control the mushrooms’ environment to ensure the ideal growing conditions. The mushrooms are cultivated on sustainably sourced Maine hardwood and straw.
The Boston Organics Dogma Box is an ever-changing variety of fruits and vegetables sourced from our region, specifically curated with locavores in mind. But what some folks don't realize is how much of the organic produce delivered in our other boxes comes from local growers, as well.
This week, Red Fire Farm and Deep Root Organic Coop continue to provide us with bountiful harvests of nutritious veggies, like gold beets and organic sunchokes.
