There's an enthralling assortment of produce harvesting across the Northeast right now, and our goal is to bring as much as possible to the Boston Organics Community. From fixtures like squash and tomatoes to exotic offerings like Romanesco and kiwi berries, it's safe to say this week's deliveries are going to be packed with the flavors and colors of the season.

It's one of the best times of year to live in New England. The days are still long and warm, but the evenings become cool and crisp. And it's during this straddle-season that we get to savor the final flavors of summer while enjoying those first tastes of fall.

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.
