2013 CSA Shares Available

100_3227We are looking forward to filling bags full of tomatoes, kale, basil, lettuce, peas, carrots, beets, cucumbers… for our CSA members again in 2013.  We had a great first year in 2012.  Though we started with fewer members than we had hoped for, it served as a great practice run resulting in satisfied customers and farmers reassured that they could provide a rich variety of vegetables every week mid- June through mid-October.

This year we are hoping to offer more of the perennial favorites such as carrots, green beans, and broccoli.  We were excited to have enough raspberries to offer members several weeks last year, and this year our asparagus is old enough to do a picking or two!

In addition to our weekly shares of mixed seasonal vegetables and culinary herbs we are offering a bread share and a sprout share as add-on options.  The bread will come from our friend Charlie Emmers at Patchwork Bakery in Hardwick.  The sprout share will be available year round featuring a half pound a week of sprouts, rotating through the seven types of sprouts and shoots we grow.

For full details about pricing and sign up, visit our CSA page above or click here.

We offer our shares on a sliding scale, trying to make good food available to people of all income levels!

    Hi Peace of Earth Farm. I attended our open house this weekend and can’t thank you enough, it was amazing to see what you’re doing. Was wondering if you know where I could get some chicken manure as I try to do my layer composting as I saw you doing it on your farm? Also, I have just posted your CSA on my personal facebook page as well as my I Heart Newport facebook page which has over 80 local followers. I look forward to visiting your farm again but will definitely call beforehand. Thanks again,
    Beth Barnes


    • Hi Beth, thanks for sharing our csa info with your contacts. I don’t know where you can specifically get chicken manure. Dairy manure or goat might be more readily available. I’d check the NOFA VT directory of farms and make some calls in the area. Apple Ledge Farm in Coventry has a lot of animals, I don’t know if they feel they have manure to spare or not. The finished compost source I mentioned is Highfields Institute in Hardwick. Good LUck
