We Got A Farm!
We got a farm. Oh yes, we got a farm.
Over the last 12 years, we’ve learned that real food has the power to make communities better. And we’ve always wanted to build a company that inspires that change in the places we serve. So, we’ve taken a big step towards fulfilling that mission.
We’re restoring and running this farm on an island in the Boston Harbor. Our farm is all about real food (we’re forecasting a harvest of 80,000 pounds of produce per year), community participation (we’re inviting you to help us work the farm), and philanthropy (we’re donating 75% of the total harvest back to our community). Best of all, since three-quarters of the crop will benefit a summer camp on the island for at-risk youth, our farm will help kids. We’ll feed them and connect them to real food by teaching gardening and urban farming.
Help us grow some good this Summer.
We’re giving family members the chance to get their hands dirty while building some good karma. So, we’re inviting you and a guest to spend a day with us in the fresh air growing some fresh veggies on our island farm. Just click below to sign up and help us get our farm growing.
Hope to see you on the farm!

bgood newsletter #41 -- newbury street, here we come
After opening our Brookline dream-house, we felt like lifting our arms and screaming in fast-food victory. (Or, at least, going out to get drunk in a Brighton dive-bar.) But, we couldn't since we had to open another one really soon.
bgood newsletter #40 -- our Brookline grand opening party
Sneaky underground gas-tanks. Tricky zoning bi laws. Evil equipment suppliers. There've been lots of challenges in the year and a half since that little, old, abandoned gas station first called to us like the beautiful, Spanish-roofed siren she is.
bgood newsletter #39 -- july's pleasure and pain
July was a strange, emotional roller coaster of a month for us. Yes, those 31 days brought us some of the greatest pleasure and pain we've ever known.

bgood newsletter #37 -- the week with El Tio

Things like grass, flowers, birds, and El Caminos (or at least the one we couldnAt move from a South End parking spot for 6 months) return to make Earth pretty again
b.good newsletter #35 help. please, help.
There's a saying that it takes a big man to ask for help. If that's true, then this month we're pretty huge because we're asking for lots and lots of the stuff.
b.good newsletter #34 our customer of the year
A young lady's commitment to a year of free burgers can make her do things she wouldn't normally do. Like build and paint a stool. For her to use. In our bathroom.
b.good newsletter #33 our 3rd birthday party
Yes, it was just 3 years ago tomorrow that the baby b.good was unleashed upon the world by a pair of weird, amateur fast-food spazes. (It was such a beautiful baby. It had absolutely no idea what it was doing, but it was beautiful.)
b.good newsletter #32 holiday gifts for our family

Fast-food champions donAt live their lives the way that the average burger-eating human does. And our champs proved that to us.

b.good newsletter #29 - our new Brookline dream house
We signed the lease to a burger palace the likes of which this world has never seen. Our dream house was officially ours...but construction and renovation meant it was still going to be a while before we actually got to live there
b.good newsletter #28 - "el guapo is here"
July that special Summer month when we celebrated our nation's independence and the fact that our new burger got a name. We held our annual party in Anthony's pathetic excuse for a backyard, gave away free burgers for a year to the guys who named our burger, and gave everyone else in our family weird t-shirts.
b.good newsletter #27 - name our new bacon burger
We decided to bring that beautiful slice of crispy, salty pork to our business. And as usual, we needed a customer to name the burger that we put it on.

b.good newsletter #21 - holiday gifts and video
It was our 2nd holiday season with our family and we had a lot to be thankful for. So, in the spirit of the season, we went out and bought gifts for our newsletter family. Yes, they were weird presents from a fast-food restaurant. But, they were filled with love (just like our burgers).

b.good newsletter #14 -- El Camino
We figured that the best investment for our business was a used Chevy "El Camino" one of those weird-looking, half-car half-trucks from the 70's and 80's. Now, we just had to find one.
b.good newsletter #13 -- tango video, burger thursday & reggae
The press told us we were good at making burgers and rap videos. But, their cameras told us that we weren't good at making our faces look attractive. So, when a few of our customers wanted to make a tango music video for us, we made sure we didnAt appear in it.
b.good newsletter #12 -- reggae music

8 months down. By now, we'd learned a lot about healthy living. But, our education to the righteous way of life started a long time ago.
b.good newsletter #7 - Garlicky Greens Contest Video

b.good newsletter #6 - Faris Red Sox Video
It was a miracle on the scale of witnessing our grill-guy, Cremildo, turn fries into wine. It never should have happened. But, it did. Uncle Faris threw out the first pitch at Fenway in the Summer of '05
b.good newsletter #5: Quarter 1
After our first quarter, we weren't quite as stupid as we once were. And to commemorate the wisdom of our leader and inspiration, Uncle Faris, we put a whole bunch of his weird sayings that don't make any sense up on our website and gave out t-shirts with an oversized picture of his face on them.
b.good newsletter #4: Advertising
We made it to week 14. So, we started evaluating advertising opportunities for our young business. We decided to give a college kid free burgers to make us a rap video.
