Pete’s Greens is a four-season organic vegetable farm located in Craftsbury, Vermont owned by Peter Johnson. We grow a vast array of specialty vegetables with an emphasis on baby greens, heirloom tomatoes, and root crops. On our farm, soil fertility is top priority. We cover crop extensively and apply prodigious quantities of compost in order to grow top quality vegetables. We use greenhouses, heated with recycled vegetable oil when necessary, root cellars and other season extension techniques to provide the greatest diversity of vegetables for as much of the year as possible.
We believe strongly in local food production and consumption. Local food is more nutritious, tastes better, and eating it connects us to our place and to the time of year.
In addition to providing an abundance of greens and other produce during the regular growing season, we are focused on offering vegetables throughout the winter, when other local produce is sparse. Our root cellars will keep select farm varieties fresh and flavorful long past the time that new growth in our greenhouses is ready to be harvested in the early spring.
We sell to stores and restaurants throughout Vermont and in Boston and New York City. Recently, we have focused on local sales direct to customers. We attend the summer and winter Montpelier Farmer's Markets and operate a seasonal farmstand. We also have a growing emphasis on our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) called Good Eats, which is the best way for our customers to have direct access to all of our produce.
