Our Dogma Box includes organic produce that's 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.
Throughout the fall and winter, Boston Organics delivers a bevy of winter squash varieties. Whether it’s a butternut, acorn, delicata, or a plump pumpkin, there are tons of ways to cook autumn’s most delicious gourds. Before you decide how to use one in your next meal, we’ve got some fresh ideas to spice up squash season!

There are a lot of good arguments for including soup on your Thanksgiving menu. Did you know that eating soup with a meal helps to cut calories? It's true. But never mind that. This is Thanksgiving and you shouldn't be counting calories. Moreover, you don't need a reason to enjoy soup. Soup is awesome. That's reason enough. Here are 7 recipes for vegetarian soups that will start your Thanksgiving feast off right.
Note: A few of these recipes have been updated to make them vegetarian (some that originally called for chicken broth now call for vegetable broth). You can view the original version of the recipes by clicking on the recipe names.

With the arrival of the summer solstice last week we can finally announce that summer is here! As we enjoy the abundance of summer sun, the variety of produce in boxes continues to grow as well. With all that sun comes the welcoming of a favorite item, summer squash. On top of that we will continue to offer cherries as an add on and we will have sweet and delicious pea shoots coming to us from Jonathan’s Sprouts. If you didn’t get a chance to order some of the wonderful garlic scapes last week have no fear: they are still available so give them a try. Oyster mushrooms round out the new items that you might see in your delivery and the variety this week is Italian Oyster.

Though it may not seem like it given last week’s snow, this week marks the beginning of spring, with the vernal equinox on Monday, March 20. Though there may still be remnants of icy cold snow on the ground this week, the produce in your Boston Organics box will remind you of the good things that come in this new season.

All the snow we've gotten in the last couple of weeks has us looking at things in a new way. Snow-covered streets seem suddenly different, and the landscape keeps shifting as the snow melts, revealing things that were buried. As snow piled up, or got packed down into slippery ice, reliable paths suddenly seem strange. This shift in perspective can help us recognize what we usually take for granted, and look at them in a new light. This week, we are looking at things sideways and reconsidering familiar foods.
