Peace and Carrots Farm is turning 5 years old in 2017 and we are celebrating all year long with 75 CSA shares in two sizes, two Farmers’ Markets, a Self-Serve Farmstand, two Drop Off locations, and a new On-Farm Brewery opening in early summer called Long Lot Farm Brewery!
Peace and Carrots grows well over 100 varieties of seasonal veggies from arugula to zucchini and everything in between. Though not certified organic, we grow using organic methods and encourage folks with questions to tour the farm and see what we do here! CSA members are also a part of our weekly newsletter, letting everyone know in advance what will be in this weeksâ share, updates on what will be harvested soon, and recipes to help with those less-familiar veggies!
All of our CSA members as well as the surrounding community are welcome to join us at the farm for our annual events which always include a Potluck, Art and Music Show, Outdoor Movie Night and Harvest Festival. As an additional perk, CSA members also can sign up for any classes we offer for free. In the past, these have included Farm Photography and Canning.
Groundwork Hudson Valley’s mission is to help residents reclaim and revitalize communities with great environmental, economic, and social challenges through on-the-ground initiatives that visibly improve the urban landscape and foster safer, more livable neighborhoods. These community-supported efforts generate local pride and self-awareness in residents. Each year, we work to restore vacant properties; improve water quality in local streams; remove invasive species; restore local habitat; build trails, parks, and playgrounds; provide healthy food at our farmers’ market and through CSAs; and create community public art, among other initiatives. We engage community members in all of our work – with a particular focus on young people.
Groundwork HV partners with Peace and Carrots farm to extend the farm’s reach into Yonkers. Together we provide additional pickup locations to increase ease of access to the same delicious produce available at the farm’s primary pickup points! Join today, while shares are still available!
