Fresh From the Farm: Red Fire Farm

Posted by Boston Organics on Mar 16, 2020 3:00:00 PM

For several of the farms that stock our deliveries with local produce and goods, this is still a busy time of year. The winter months are often a time to repair and reassess ahead of the growing season.

Fresh From the Farm: Nature's Circle Farm

Posted by Boston Organics on Feb 24, 2020 7:30:00 AM

Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers - August 2019

Posted by Boston Organics on Sep 16, 2019 7:05:00 AM

We know you value organic produce for the benefits it has both on your health and the environment. But as a busy Bostononian, you might not have time to visit the source -- the farms. At Boston Organics, we also value transparency in the supply chain and make sure that the food you eat comes from truly sustainable operations.

Every season we like to visit growers that are a part of our network. Not only does this help maintain our strong working relationships, but it also gives us an opportunity to ask questions and see how they continue to make positive changes on their farms.

Earlier this summer, we sent a few members of the Boston Organics Crew to western Massachusetts for a few of these visits. Here’s how our day went.

Fresh From the Farm: What a fungi!

Posted by Coley Ward on Oct 2, 2017 9:46:49 AM

This week's box features shiitake mushrooms, which are crazy nutritious but also delicious. If you're a mushroom fan, shiitakes are likely one your list of favorites (they're so much more flavorful and complex than boring white button mushrooms!). You'll encounter shiitakes in various forms in a lot of Asian cuisine, like miso soup and many stirfries. Today we've got a recipe that calls for roasting the mushrooms and we think you're going to love it.

Posted by Boston Organics on Aug 28, 2017 7:43:13 AM

August may be coming to an end but that does not mean that there isn’t still time to take advantage of all the amazing summer produce that we still have available this week. There are so many wonderful farm partners that we are so lucky to work with and the ending of one season and the beginning of another is a time to be grateful for the partnerships that we have while also getting excited about the wonderful produce to come.
