Is World PEAS produce sustainable?
Our produce is grown locally and harvested fresh, within hours of pick-up. World PEAS beginning, immigrant and refugee farmers use organic and sustainable growing practices, and they are prohibited from using synthetic pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, fertilizers, and GMO seeds. They also receive technical assistance and support year-round from New Entry staff to maintain production integrity in their fields and farm products. Our farmers act as stewards of rural & suburban lands, by increasing soil fertility and health while preserving agrarian landscapes.
We source additional fruits and vegetables from farms within 100 miles of Boston that use certified organic practices, compliant but uncertified organic practices, or Integrated Pest Management (mostly for local fruit and sweet corn).
