On Sunday, July 15, the Belfast Co-op is hosting a trip to family-owned and operated Peacemeal Farm in Dixmont. Transportation will be provided by Waldo CAP, departing from the Belfast Co-op at 12:45 p.m. and returning by 4:15 p.m.

Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. Hosts Mark Guzzi and Marcia Ferry grow eleven acres of MOFGA-certified organic vegetables and fruits. Their produce is sold at farmers’ markets in Bangor, Belfast, Camden, Orono, Waterville, the Common Ground Country Fair and their farm stand in Dixmont. You can also find their produce at the Belfast Co-op throughout the growing season and into the winter.

Originally established in the mid-1970s, Peacemeal has been providing local communities with fresh organic produce for many years. Some crops you may see on the farm tour include tomatoes, peppers, peas, beans, garlic, onions, greens, squash, melons, potatoes, carrots and more.

Pre-register at any register at the Belfast Co-op. The cost is $10 to help cover transportation. You can also pre-register by phone using a debit or credit card by calling (207) 338-2532. The community-owned Belfast Co-op, located at 123 High Street in downtown Belfast, is open daily from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. All are welcome!
