Support your Wellness & the Planet...
Become a Member & get a Farm Share in 2018... 

We are certified organic by the Northeast Organic Farming Association - NY chapter (NOFA-NY). Growing vegetables organically since 1995, we sell produce directly to people through our CSA Farm Share program. 

Being a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Member and having a Farm Share is the easiest, least expensive way to get the freshest, most nutritious variety of organic vegetables in seasonIn your weekly Farm Share, you’ll get 6-10 kinds of fresh-picked produce for 20 weeks, June through October. 

In the interest of providing even better quality and variety in 2018, we’ve reduced the number of available Farm Shares from 120 to 60. Shares are available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you're in the Southern Tier and would like a Share, contact our Membership Coordinator as soon as possible ~ bethmiller@localnet.com. 

Before Signing up for 2018 CSA Share:
Decide whether you'd like to be a NonWorking Member or a Working Member

* NonWorking Members enjoy the convenience of picking up their Share of vegetables each week at our Farm outside of Bath (Tues), or at pick-up sites in Hammondsport (Tues), Painted Post (Thurs) and Corning (Thurs).


* Working Members enjoy the fresh air, exercise and community of people that gather to help plant, grow, weed, & harvest delicious veggies together. 
Working Members commit to one weekly working shift for the whole growing season (June through October) ~ EITHER 1) Monday evenings from 5-7pm OR 2) Thursday mornings from 11am-1pm. If you are out of town and miss your work time, you can simply forfeit your vegetables for that week. Or you can ask someone else to work for you and have them pick-up your veggies.

NonWorking Share: $550 - Pay in Full or Payment Plan: $100 deposit, $225 by 4/30 &a 5/30

Working Share:  $350 - Pay in Full or Payment Plan: $100 deposit, $125 by 4/30 & 5/30

Half Share: If you split a Working or NonWorking Share with someone, you pay half the Share price.

**All Shares are non-refundable.
  
To pay for your Share, you can: 1) Use PayPal, press CTRL + click on 2018 CSA Payment; 2) or call Beth Miller at 607-329-5883 with a cc# (VISA, MC, AMEX, DISC), 3) or send a check to the PeaceWeavers c/o Willow at 8125 Crouse Road, Bath, NY 14810. Please put your email address in the memo line.

How big is a Share?
A Full Share will generally meet the needs of two adults or two adults with two children if you eat a fair amount of vegetables or one adult who eats a lot of vegetables. If you feel that it may be too many vegetables for you, we encourage you to find someone else to split a Share with you. Thus, you each pay for half the Share and split the vegetables between you each week, or you can alternate picking up the Full Share. If it's a Working Share, you can alternate working every other week.

Please see the list of vegetables we typically grow at the end of this post.


*** 
What is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture)? CSA's are an alternative way of connecting farmers and consumers that insures fresher, better quality, healthier food for the consumer and a guaranteed market for the farmer. Individuals, couples and families sign up in the winter/spring to receive a weekly share of the vegetable harvest during the growing season.


Benefits of Membership
Save Money - 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 to do our best to provide you with affordable, healthy, fresh organically grown food. In this era of climate change, growing food holds many challenges. As partners in community supported agriculture, our members risk getting a smaller harvest due to overly wet or dry conditions or receiving "more than you pay for" when we have great weather and bumper crops. Because there are major factors not under our control, all Shares are non-refundable. Please note that a majority of our members return from year to year.

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.



FYI ~ All members will receive weekly recipes & tips on cooking from our vegan chefs who serve visitors at our retreat center.

Our Farm is part of the PeaceWeavers' 250-acre Thunder Mountain Peace Sanctuary outside of Bath, NY. To find out more about our Peace Sanctuary, Wellness Retreats, Peace Gatherings, Kids Peace Camp & more, please go to http://peaceweavers.com

~Best wishes for your wellness from all of us on the Farm

"Working on the farm feeds my love for growing things, mostly relationships. I enjoy mingling with like minds and more importantly, minds that are unlike in varying degrees. When we achieve an appreciation for each other, even though we see things differently - that is when growing relationships become our most treasured organic sustenance...the wholesome food we bring to the table ain't bad either."
Dave Walczak, Working Share Member

PeaceWeaver Organic Community Farm - a place where our kids can grow in the sunshine and plant roots in Mother Earth - cultivating them is just as important as the food we are growing.
