Why Join Peacework Organic CSA

Peacework Organic Community Supported Agriculture (formerly called Genesee Valley Organic CSA) is our area's oldest continually-operating CSA. For our main season CSA, we partner with Peacework Farm in Newark, NY to provide us with 24 weekly Full and Partial "shares" of fresh, certified organic vegetables and herbs from early June through mid-November. We also partner with Blue Heron Farm in Lodi, NY to offer bi-weekly Full and Half shares of organic winter vegetables from January through mid-March.

What is CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between consumers and farmers. Consumers contract with farmers before the growing season begins for a share of the upcoming harvest. They agree to share the risks and rewards of growing food in their local climate. Farmers are guaranteed a market and an income; consumers receive fresh, just-picked local produce and the satisfaction of helping to keep local farms in business. CSAs are as individual as the people who form them.

Peacework Organic CSA Vision

We envision the creation of a land-based community of people of diverse ages, backgrounds, and incomes, farmers and non-farmers, who are committed to love, justice, equality, democracy and cooperation. Our community honors the intrinsic value of nature and food and the dignity of labor. The members of this community will work gently together to learn and teach others to live sustainably, in the broadest sense, for the health of all living creatures and the planet. We will practice an agriculture that supports a whole, healthy, sustainable, and loving community
