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!

The abundance of dried or sprouted beans, wintery root vegetables, and dark leafy greens available at this time of year and the many varieties grains we've got available have got us thinking about Grain Bowls! And what could be better than building one from the bounty in your Boston Organics box. Follow our recipe or use it to inspire a version that speaks to you or go totally off script creating your own!
Creating a grain bowl is basically a three step process:
- choose your base of a grain and green
- build your middle from our fresh organic fruits and vegetables
- top it off with the fun stuff
- optional 4th step - make it substantial!

Before it was dubbed America’s “superfood,” kale was an obscure green that could only be found at farmers’ markets, independent health food stores and, of course, at Boston Organics. Kale has become so popular that it’s almost hard to remember a time before it was the ultimate emblem of healthy food.
But now that kale is everywhere, there are so many different kinds of kale out there, it’s hard to keep them all straight.
Here’s a quick guide to the most common varieties of kale we carry, so the next time it shows up in your organic grocery delivery you won’t be asking yourself “What the kale is that?!”

There's no doubt about it, the Boston Organics Community sure ate well in 2016. Our farm partners and other suppliers kept us in fresh fruits and vegetables all year long, and it was a joy to see the shift from citrus and root crops in the winter to tomatoes and stone fruit in the summer, and to enjoy all the delicious produce in between.
To start 2017 off on the right foot, we decided to share our top-clicked recipes of the past year, to offer the opportunity to reprise tasty favorites or to find new inspiration for the year ahead.

There's a lot to be excited about this week: fresh succulent greens from Atlas Farms, crisp rhubarb and, our favorite, Boston Organics' new website! The new site has improved account visibility and mobile responsiveness so you can easily make adjustments—that means more time for cooking and enjoying the fruits of local season. Read on to learn more about this week's featured recipes and produce.
With the end of the year approaching we're seeing a little bit of a slowdown in the variety of fruits and vegetables coming from local growers. But there's no need to panic yet—we still have an intriguing selection of locally sourced, organic produce coming your way.
The bountiful harvests from our local farm partners continue this week with an absolute rainbow of color. Bright red tomatoes, summer squash and fresh corn on the cob round out a cornucopia that also includes several leafy greens, blueberries and eggplants.
Our Dogma Box includes organic fruits and vegetables sourced as close to Boston as possible throughout the year. Similar to a CSA or farm share, this box is filled with the best organic produce from local and regional farms each week.
