The Productive Peasant Farm Co.
The Productive Peasant Farm Co. is a half-acre bio-intensive farm growing chemical-free vegetables, fruits, and herbs in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. We cater to chefs, independent grocers and market vendors, as well as to home cooks through our Small Family Salad and Side Dish CSA.
Our mission at The Productive Peasant Farm Co. is to bring greater joy and health to people’s lives through the provision of the freshest, tastiest, most beautiful, and most nutritious produce possible. We select the varietals we grow with flavor-first and aesthetic-conscious clientele in mind. Through our dedication to craft and personal service we guarantee our customers and partners a pleasant, restorative experience. And we do this with an ongoing commitment to the protection and care of the land on which we work.

The Small Family Salad & Side Dish CSA
Runs 12 Weeks, May-July. Sign up by March 1 to receive at least $375 of fresh produce for just $325!
Each week, you and your family will receive an assortment of Lancaster’s freshest seasonal ingredients that can be easily assembled into a variety of healthy salads and side dishes throughout the week. In addition to receiving a regular delivery of our very own spring mix and fixings for summer salads such as cherry tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, sweet baby turnips and carrots, you will receive additional greens, veggies and fruits that can be transformed into tasty gourmet salads and side dishes with minimal effort.
By providing two or three recipes each week and the vast majority of the ingredients that these recipes call for, your grocery shopping and meal prep should be simplified. In order to make the recipes included in a typical week, you may only need to buy (or have on hand already) oil, vinegar, or perhaps some meat or cheese should you choose to include those ingredients. You will receive an email no less than three days prior to receiving each box which will include a list of produce you will receive along with featured recipes that allow you to plan your meals with those ingredients. You will also receive a very short “need to have on hand” list of ingredients called for by the recipes but not included in your CSA box.
Most of the products in our shares will be seasonal chemical-free produce coming directly from our farm. Produce that is called for by the recipes but not grown on our farm will be procured from other local organic farms and vendors that we partner with, and we will inform you on who we have partnered with each week. The few non-organic items included during the season are limited to products that are difficult to find from local organic growers, such as tree nuts, or other minimally-processed items, such as croutons or flat-bread pizza crusts made by local bakeries. By supplementing our own produce with products from other local businesses, your support is being spread more widely throughout our community!
