Liz, Skip, Silas & The Crew
Welcome to our website. Skip Paul and Liz Peckham have been farming in Rhode Island for nearly 30 years. Please explore our website and see the range of offerings from CSA, Farmers Markets, Wholesale; to our sought after free-range eggs, fresh pickles, pies, fresh scones and local honey. Our flavorful organic greenhouse tomatoes are available to our CSA shareholders and loyal customers from our opening day to our last pickup in December. With over 28 varieties of lettuce, 12 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, fresh peaches, 9 varieties of eggplant, yellow pole beans and 280 other cultivars, we are looking forward to bringing the excitement of new tastes and sensations back to your dinner table. Not to mention the enthusiasm your kids will have eating vegetables they helped pick out at our 3 CSA pickup sites.
Our mission statement: Wishing Stone Farm grows certified organic and quality I.P.M. produce. Our growing methods mirror our commitment to sustainable agriculture and the protection of open space; while providing food for our local communities.
Wishing Stone Farm is nestled just in from the coastline in Little Compton, RI. This will be our 30th season farming. We are one of Rhode Island's largest state certified organic farms, managing approximately 35 acres of fields and 30,000 sq. ft. of greenhouse space. The majority of our produce is grown organically, however certain crops such as peaches are farmed with biorational/IPM methods, and are always labeled as such.
We are a family farm, growing a large variety of quality produce for sale at farmer's markets and wholesale accounts throughout the state. For us, it is more a spiritual journey than just a job, calling upon all our resources and sensibilities.
