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.

We’ve had organic blueberries available as an add-on for several weeks, but wild blueberries—the kind that you dreamt about as a kid—are in another league entirely.
