Throughout the year, Boston Organics’ network of farm partners supplies us with fresh, local produce. These relationships are at the heart of what we do. One special star of the summer local season, for more than 15 years, is Atlas Farms, which at the moment is keeping our Boston Organics Community in baby bok choy, leafy lettuces, kale and greens. And as the season progresses we'll have summer squash, poblano peppers, fennel and evermore greens!

That way, you can reduce your food miles while also purchasing food that uses less energy-intensive production practices and maintains healthy ecosystems.
