A weekly update from Boston Organics.

This week's boxes are all about weird but lovable relatives. From the mysterious Cameo apples (we're not sure how they're related, but we're too polite to say so) to cauliflower and Brussels sprouts, those estranged cousins, you'll find delightful, delicious produce filling your green box, whether you care to explore the botanical family tree, or just invite it in for family dinner.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Though late summer, with the much-anticipated arrival of long-season crops like tomatoes, eggplant and corn, may seem to be the peak season for most farmers, the colder months mark the beginning of busy season for Michael Docter of Winter Moon Farm. This is lucky for us; while we can relish the slower pace of January after the bustle of the holidays, we can be assured that we will have hearty, whole foods to help us along.

It's official: We are in the best part of autumn. A highly sensory season, fall is filled with spicy smells, chilly breezes and the sounds of nature quieting in preparation for winter. Let's not forget the flavors, though, of sweet leafy greens, satisfying root veggies and hearty squash. It's a good week to get excited about the season, because fall is bursting out of every box.

Visiting Our Local, Organic Farmers

Posted by Boston Organics 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.

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

As summer vacation starts to wind down, some of the best organic fruits and vegetables are just starting to arrive. Fresh corn and Asian eggplant fill many of the Boston Organics Community’s boxes this week, and Dwight Miller and Son Orchards will share their first apple harvest of the season with us, as well. Meanwhile, Kitchen Garden and Atlas Farm each have special tomatoes that are just begging to be eaten.

Keep reading to learn where your food comes from and how to cook it the right way.
