The Farm

Wild Peace Farm is a small, certified organic vegetable farm located in Freeland, MD.  We grow a wide variety of seasonal vegetables.  We're working to provide fresh, nutritious food for our community in a way that's harmonious with the natural world around us. 

It's important to us to farm without the use of toxic pesticides or herbicides, without GMOs, and without a dependence on chemical fertilizers. We minimize our use of even organic pesticides; instead, we prefer to manage insect pests with physical barriers like row covers. This year we had success using parasitic wasps to help control bean beetles, so in the future we will experiment with using other beneficial insects.  We increase soil health with crop rotation, cover crops, organic soil amendments, and compost. Weed control is achieved with straw mulch, re-usable plastic ground cover, and mechanical and manual cultivation. We would be happy to talk to you about any of our farming practices if you're interested!

We are just beginning the exciting journey of building a vibrant, resilient, and efficient farm and are thankful to our community and customers for your support.

You can buy our produce at three local farmers markets. We are rebooting our CSA program for the 2018 season. Scroll down to find out more!

CSA: Community Supported Agriculture 

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA creates a strong connection between the community and farms. CSA members support small-scale farms financially while the farm provides weekly shares of fresh, seasonal produce to members.

How our CSA works

Each of our 3 CSA options provides you with a variety of produce each week of the harvest season (early June to mid-November.) Scroll down to see a list of vegetables we grow. With Mother Nature comes uncertainty, but this is what you can expect to receive throughout the harvest season. You will notice that the types of vegetables will change with the seasons. During spring and fall, there will be more greens and root crops, while summer is full of heat-loving vegetables like tomatoes and peppers. 


CSA Options

Market Share: Our Market Share is offered at the Hereford Farm Market and the Sunday Catonsville Market. It works like a credit account at our market stand. Members can choose between a small and large option. The small share costs $300 and members receive $330 credit at the farm stand. A large share costs $500 and members receive a value of $550. This option provides the most flexibility. Members can choose any products (vegetables, flowers, or eggs) available at the stand, at any amount, and can skip a week at no loss. Credits must be used at these two markets during the 2018 farmers market season. The Hereford Farm Market runs for 20 weeks (May-October), while the Catonsville Market runs 25 weeks (May-Nov). Early signups will earn additional farm stand credit!

Box Share: Box shares provide a farmer-selected variety of vegetables each week. This share is a great value, with each box including 7-9 fresh vegetables. Boxes are available at 2 drop-off sites, as well as for delivery at the Hereford Farm Market and Catonsville Market. This share cost $700 for 25 weeks of produce, and runs mid-June through mid-November. There is a discount for early signup! 

Egg Share: The Egg Share is offered as an add-on for the Box Share.  Egg Shares reserve either 1 dozen or 1/2 dozen of our pasture-raised eggs each week for 25 weeks. 

Farm Share: The farm share offers the greatest value. Members pick up their produce on the farm. Veggies are laid out farmers market style and bagged by members. Some vegetables are available as pick your own, like cherry tomatoes, sugar snap peas, green beans, and select flowers and herbs. The cost of this share is $700 for 25 weeks of produce, mid-June through mid-November. Early signups get a discounted rate!

Egg Share: The Egg Share is offered as an add-on for the Farm Share.  Egg Shares reserve either 1 dozen or 1/2 dozen of our pasture-raised eggs each week for 25 weeks.

The farmers

Hi, I'm Tamara, the full-time farmer at Wild Peace Farm. Farming is my passion and I'm so thankful that it's what I get to do every day. I love working outside, I love growing good food, I love doing and learning new things every day, and I love seeing the farm grow into a productive, sustainable entity.

 

Kerriann works a full-time job off the farm, but you can find her almost every Sunday at the Catonsville Market. She also spends many evenings and weekends weeding, planting, and harvesting. As long as she has a cup of coffee on Sunday mornings and can dip her toes in the river after a long day of weeding, she's a happy camper!

Ashley works in the fields, planting, weeding, harvesting and more. She has a special knack with working with our laying hens and takes care of them with love. You can find Ashley every Saturday running our farm stand at the Hereford Farm Market. Her hard work and positive energy add so much to the farm! 

 

PASTURE-RAISED EGGS

Our flock of free-range egg layers is raised on pasture. They live in a movable coop which is surrounded by electric netting. We close them in the coop at night to keep them safe from predators, but during the day they free range in the field. They forage for bugs and seeds, they love eating "seconds' vegetables, but their primary feed is gmo=free grain. We choose to use gmo-free grain because it is raised using fewer herbicides than most conventional grains. The coop and its larger enclosure is moved around the farm so that they always have access to fresh grass and we can use their chicken manure for fertilizer. Our hens get plenty of fresh air, sunlight, and love, and you can taste it in the eggs!
