Buy Your Food Where It's Grown!
We Have Your Health And Well Being In Mind
We grow all Non-GMO produce and strictly adhere to organic growing best practices.
The Root Connection is Washington State’s first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farm. Since 1987, we have been growing local, chemical-free food for the community at our 20-acre site in the Sammamish Valley between Woodinville and Redmond. For over 30 years, we have offered our members the best of seasonal vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Most of our members pick up their produce right here at the farm.
Invest In Yourself, Your Family, Your Environment, And Your Community
Our harvest season runs 20 or 21 weeks depending on weather, June - October. Members can pick up their vegetables within just hours of when they are picked from the ground! This means that you are getting the highest quality produce possible, with superior flavor, texture, and nutrition. In addition to farm pick-up in Redmond, we have drop sites in Seattle and Lynnwood.
One of the biggest benefits of joining the Root Connection is that in addition to your share, members can “U-pick” dozens of types of greens, herbs, and flowers for free! This adds even more value to your share. Shares are available in two sizes––full shares which are picked up weekly and half shares which are picked up every other week.
Experience The Farm
Would you like to walk the paths through the growing crops, observe our growing techniques, hang out with chickens, or teach your children where veggies come from and how they are grown? Or, have you ever smelled the sweet aroma of corn pollinating, looked over a field of lush basil to find just the right stems to clip for dinner, or stood in a field of assorted greens on a crisp fall day to choose just the right ones to freeze for winter?
Ways To Join
We grow a wide selection of vegetables, herbs, and flowers on the farm during the summer and make them available to you through our CSA. During the winter, our Certified Organic Winter Shares bring to your table the finest organically grown fruits and vegetables. Northwest gardeners delight in our Farm Store Nursery every spring by choosing from herbs, veggie starts, and gallon tomato plants. Check our annual calendar anytime!
It's Your Community
The Root Connection isn’t just a place to pick up your weekly vegetables. Members can fully experience the farm and see how we all are connected to the soil and the gifts it gives. It is also a place for people to come together and feel like they’re part of a community. Members exchange recipes, ideas about health, nutrition, organic farming. Children learn about how vegetables grow first hand in the children’s garden.
What Our Members Say
We asked our members what belonging to the Root Connection has meant to their families. Here are some of their answers:
"Our Claire is one of the only 4 1/2 year olds we know who loves kale and spinach and kohlrabi, all because of the farm. It was a big thrill for her to visit the children's garden, too." — KEVIN
"Personally, I feel very good about supporting an operation such as yours. All your workers have a great working environment, and we can actually support a business that pays its workers a livable wage! More deeply though, we all feel more connected with the earth and with the life which springs forth from it to nourish our beings. I felt like the veggies came from a friend's garden." — JIM
"I am a new member of the Root Connection and just picked up my first weekly supply of veggies. WOW! I am so impressed! Never in my wildest dreams have I ever dreamed of such luscious, wonderful produce. The lettuce heads are enormous, and the leaves are delicate, tender, and so flavorful. I'm going to tell everybody I know they'd better become a member quick. What an incredible find your farm is. Our fridge is now full of yummy, fresh greens, and herbs and beautiful radishes. I can't wait for each meal so I can eat some more." — CINDY
"There is something so motivating about being handed a huge sack full of the yummiest vegetables ever, each week, that reminds me of how some people subscribe to exercise programs. Sure they could exercise on their own; but they do not get out and do it unless they sign up and have a specific time and place to meet. That's me and vegetables. I know how many we should be eating and the myriad of reasons organically-grown is best. But when I'm in the grocery store, I fall much too short of the goal. Joining the Root Connection solves that for me and my family. We eat more green stuff. And it tastes good." — BETH
“I read your newsletter every week during the CSA season and am constantly reminded of how hard it is to be a farmer- the work, thoughtfulness, research, creativity and problem solving that you and everyone at The Root Connection put in is amazing. All to put yummy, nourishing and beautiful food on our plates all summer long (and pesto and frozen greens into the winter as well!!)” — KARIN
