What does a Peace of Earth Farm CSA share look like?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a commitment involving shared responsibility between the “eaters” and the “growers”. By purchasing a share from our farm you will help guarantee a summer’s worth of sales and offer up front cash for a small regenerative farm. In return you will receive a wide variety of fresh vegetables, fruits, and mushrooms as they mature in season at near wholesale prices. You will also have a chance to get to know a local farm and experience how your food is grown.
Vegetable Shares: Each week during the growing season you will come to our farm and receive a box of mixed vegetables and culinary herbs. A pick up location in Hardwick is also available. Early season boxes may be lighter and late season boxes hold a higher value, balancing out seasonal fluctuation. Information about vegetable varieties, storage and recipes will accompany your share through an electronic newsletter.
Cost: We strive to make good food available to everyone regardless of income. At the same time, we need to make a sustainable income for ourselves. Our shares are offered on a sliding scale. Pay what you can afford. If you can afford to pay more, your generosity will help make shares available for more people in your community.
