Welcome to the PEACE Farm Shop!
Essential Organic Wholefoods
Seasonal eating completely transforms our eating and cooking habits and untimaletly our health. We find ourselves eating MORE veg and fruit and LESS processed food. Ofcourse with the transformation brings the challenge of changing our unhealthy habits developed from eating out of season. Eating freshly picked local veggies and fruit are tastier, more nutrisious and have far less impact on our environment. We also discover new flavours, sweetness in veggies and a whole new set of cooking skills. Below is the list of seasonal veggies and fruit that you may expect to find in your boxes during the year.

VEGGIE BOXES (Community Supported box scheme Agriculture (CSA))
Our CSA food boxes are at the heart of our farm business. We provide the best we can sustainably grow right here at PEACE Farm and supplement our produce with other local or certified organic when needed. Committed veggie and fruit box members receive up to 30% off other produce and products in the PEACE Farm store. There is a $30 Administration fee upon sign up to this system.
Variability of contents and value
One of the magical things about the seasonal veggie box is the exact content and quality depends environmental factors. Expect the first few boxes of the season to be less abundant until more crops start to come on, where later in the season boxes will often feel super abundant. This is all part of working with the season.
There is really something special when members come to the farm and get their ‘hands dirty’. Your help helps keeps prices down and the motivation up from all those involved. The whole family is welcome to be part of the experience!
