What’s In the Dogma Box – April 15, 2014

April 15th, 2014

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.

It’s looking more and more like spring for our Dogma Box customers! This week the Dogma Box features Massachusetts-grown basil and super sweet spring-dug parsnips. It’s hard to beat the freshness and flavor of these local fruits and veggies.

This week’s Dogma Box contains:

The English slicing cucumbers in this week’s box have thinner skins and fewer seeds than more commonly known varieties. That makes them easier to puree into a refreshing Cucumber Agua Fresca!

What’s In the Dogma Box – March 24, 2014

March 25th, 2014

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.

The potatoes in this week’s Dogma Box come from Nature’s Circle Farm owned by Dick York and his daughter, Meg. Nature’s Circle started growing organic crops before most people knew about organic certification. Their potatoes come with a recipe for Roasted Potatoes with Basil, which works perfectly with the fresh basil also included in the Dogma Box this week!
