Fresh from the Farm

A weekly update from Boston Organics.

Author Faith Baldwin once painted a rich portrait of autumn, describing how it "[burns] brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees." The same goes for the fields in which our farm partners' crops grow. And this week we're taking some of fall's fiery enchantment, packing it up and bringing it to your doorstep.

It's one of the best times of year to live in New England. The days are still long and warm, but the evenings become cool and crisp. And it's during this straddle-season that we get to savor the final flavors of summer while enjoying those first tastes of fall.

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.

Fresh from the Farm

Posted by Eric Siegel on Aug 30, 2015 9:27:00 AM
A weekly update from Boston Organics.

You can never have too many organic tomatoes.

We adopted that motto after a fungal disease wiped out most of Atlas Farm’s tomato fields last year. But this year our farmers have used all of their organic farming prowess to protect their tomatoes from late blight and they have a bumper crop to share with the Boston Organics Community.

So we’re putting our tomăto motto to the test this week with oodles of heirlooms from Atlas and juicy Roma tomatoes from Blue Ox Farm in almost all of the boxes.

Farmers are often considered creatures of habit—if they find something that works well, they like to stick with it. At the same time, unpredictable weather patterns, pests and botanical diseases mean that organic farmers need to think on their feet and be ready to adapt and try new things at a moment's notice.

In the Boston area, the early summer is a fantastic time to get your hands on a variety of locally grown leafy greens. This week, familiar faves like kale and dandelion are joined by more unusual leaves like calaloo and radicchio — all coming from Atlas Farm in central Massachusetts.

6/29-7/3

The mercurial early summer weather continues to keep our organic farm partners on their toes. Gideon Porth at Atlas Farm reported that the heat caused a few rows of arugula to bolt prematurely, but the plentiful rain helped his early plantings of collard greens grow to full size in time for harvest.
