City offers easy way to get fresh produce


Peabody is partnering with Clark Farm on a community-supported agriculture program In a CSA, a local farm invites customers to purchase shares of their harvest at the start of the growing season. Those purchasing a share receive a weekly supply of fresh fruits and vegetables and other products throughout the season. The city offered a CSA program last summer with another farm. As was the case last year, the products will be delivered weekly to the Peabody Institute Library at its main library at 82 Main St. and at the West Branch library, 603 Lowell St., for pick-up by the shareholders. Clark Farm, located in Danvers, features fruits and vegetables that are naturally grown without pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Shareholders will receive an array of vegetables from the farm, including lettuces, kale, beets, carrots, onions, shallots, heirloom tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and summer squash. They will be supplemented by fruit, maple syrup, preserves, cheeses, and other products from other New England farms. The 20-week program begins June 10 and will cost $300 for a small share and $500for a large share. For more information and to sign up, contact Bill Clark at 978-790-3303, or at
