World PEAS (People Enhancing Agricultural Sustainability) is a network of farmers that have completed agricultural and business training with the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (www.nesfp.org). Over 30 farmers contribute to the World PEAS CSA, hailing from Africa, Asia, North America, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean and manage small farms near Lowell. Many of these farmers are economically and socially disadvantaged and have little access to other marketing outlets due to social, technological and language barriers. In addition to growing traditional New England vegetables, many continue to grow ethnic crops from their homelands.

World PEAS farmers are not certified organic, but use organic and sustainable growing practices. Additional items, including sweet corn, potatoes and apples are sourced from farms that are certified organic or use integrated pest management for a selection of over 70 locally-grown traditional and ethnic vegetables, berries, melons, tree fruit and more. By buying a farm share with the World PEAS CSA, you will get fresh, local and healthy produce, while supporting the next generation of culturally diverse farmers.

Large Shares include enough vegetables and fruit each week to feed a family of four or five. 20 Distributions, June to October........$805

Small Shares include enough vegetables and fruit each week to feed two adults. 20 Distributions, June through October................$540

Fall/Harvest shares include enough vegetables and fruit each week to feed two adults. 8 distributions, Sep. through October.......$235
