World PEAS Food Hub- New Entry Sustainable Farming Project

2015 SEASON REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! The World PEAS Food Hub ("People Enhancing Agricultural Sustainability") aggregates produce from 30+ beginning, immigrant and refugee farmers, along with tree fruits and berries from local orchards. This produce serves over 450 World PEAS CSA shareholders, local shelters and food banks, schools and institutions, and low-income communities. World PEAS has Small, Large and Fall offerings delivered to 25+ locations in Boston and Middlesex County.

World PEAS Food Hub aims to build long term economic self-reliance and food security among beginning farmers in eastern Massachusetts, and to expand access of healthy and culturally appropriate foods in underserved areas through production of locally-grown foods. Many World PEAS farmers grow crops on less than 1 acre of land, and many have limited English language skills, adequate transportation, or computer literacy- all of which are needed to be able to develop an individual CSA. World PEAS CSA aggregates produce to remove these barriers to connecting directly with their consumers. World PEAS also partners with community organizations to improve food access in under-resourced communities.

World PEAS is a program of the New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, a non-profit partnership of Tufts University and Community Teamwork, Inc.

I was a farmer that participated in World Peas last year. This CSA is run incredibly professionally. When I made drops to the walk in cooler I was overwhelmed by the variety and freshness of the produce being offered.


We're only a few weeks in, but so far it's been great - overflowing boxes of veggies and fruit - last week had blueberries and peaches!


I got a WorldPeas farm share this summer (2008) and it was fantastic! It is four months of really terrific vegetables. I have learned to cook things that I've never seen in the grocery store and have had a wonderful variety of vegetables.... [more]
