Our Organic Farm & CSA
We have been growing vegetables organically since 1995 and are certified organic by the Northeast Organic Farming Association – NY chapter (NOFA-NY).
Our farm includes 80 acres of farmable land. We grow vegetables on 5 acres and grains on the other 75.
We invite you to become a member of the PeaceWeaver Organic CSA.
Belonging to our Farm is the easiest and least expensive way to get the freshest and most nutritious variety of organic vegetables in our region during the growing season.
What is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)? CSA’s are an alternate way of connecting farmers and consumers that insures fresher, better quality, healthier food for the consumer. Individuals, couples and families sign up in the winter to receive a weekly share of the vegetable harvest during the growing season.
Benefits of Membership
Getting vegetables through a CSA saves you money because you buy directly from the grower without any mark-up or shipping costs. Compared to grocery store prices, pound for pound, food purchased through a CSA gives you greater savings.
Healthy for You, Healthy for the Earth
Our veggies have maximum nutrition because you get them the same day they are picked. Recent scientific studies show that organically grown produce has on average 25% more vitamins and minerals than non-organic produce. In addition, our vegetables do not have the health detractors of pesticides, herbicides, artificial fertilizers, waxes and resins which not only tax your health but also the health of the planet.
Our Promise & Sharing the Risk
We promise you to do our best to provide affordable, healthy, fresh organically grown food. In turn, our members agree to share the risk of growing food with us. That is, if we have cold, wet weather in the summer, we may have a smaller harvest. On the flip side our members risk getting “more than they pay for” when we have great weather and bumper crops. Typically we have an abundant harvest.
Overall, belonging to a CSA is not simply about getting great vegetables. It’s about being part of a movement that is boosting local economies as well as reclaiming healthy food, unspoiled land, air and water for ourselves and generations to come.
