Supporting Immigrant-Owned Farms

Posted by Boston Organics on May 11, 2022 2:13:42 PM

We love the connections that we've made with the local organic farming community over our almost 20 years delivering organic food in the greater Boston area, and the part we've played in helping the farmers build their businesses and support one another.

In 2008 Michael Docter of Winter Moon Roots in Hadley, MA approached Boston Organics about supplying us with their storage carrots. He was building his business, a carbon neutral 30 acre organic root vegetable farm and needed a reliable market for his produce. We agreed to purchase 1000 lbs of carrots per week, ensuring he could get his business off the ground and the rest is history. We've relied on his beautiful, organic root vegetables ever since.

Just last week we learned from another of our suppliers, Atlas Farms, about a GoFund me campaign to help Rosendo Santizo, stay with me here, buy Winter Moon Farms from Michael.

If being more environmentally-friendly was one of your New Year’s resolutions, good for you! You already contribute to sustainability by choosing to support Boston Organics, and, by extension, organic producers. These growers don’t pollute our soil and water with toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers and help build the soil to ensure that organic farming can continue for generations. This week, we’re thinking about ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions related to food, especially those associated with eating meat and with food waste. Read on for ideas for experimenting with reducing your food's carbon footprint.
