How Our CSA Membership Works

Our farm will be operating during this Covid-19 crisis. Most members pick up at the farm and we will have procedure changes in place for the safety of our members and staff. Our produce is only handled twice (picking and washing) then packed in sterilized bins prior to member pickup. Produce shipped into regular retail outlets is handled up to 12 times (read more...). We are committed to your health and safety. The farm grounds will still be open to people to go walking on, as well as the u-pick areas.

 

Covid-19 precautions:

Customers must distance
. Please wear a mask if you have one. 
If not, a disposable mask will be provided.
 We are limiting the number of people in the farm store building and the tomato greenhouse. 
Foot traffic barriers are set up.

How many people does a share feed?

It really depends on how many fresh veggies your household consumes on a weekly basis. We have some 2-3 person households that use all of a share, but typically it fits best with a household of 4-6. We have half shares available, see question below. Many members take advantage of the more bountiful harvests during the later part of the season by freezing vegetables in soup stock, or otherwise preserving them for use during the winter.

I have a small family - can I split a share with someone else?

Yes, we have half shares. Members who opt for the half share will pick up produce every other week rather than every week. You can sign up for a half share on your own. Contact us for more information.

How often do I get a share?

Full Shares pick up every week – you can choose a Wed/Thurs or Fri/Sat time slot for picking up your share. (Note: Drop site deliveries are on Wednesday only). Half Shares pick up every other week.

What can I expect in my share? What does "seasonal vegetables, herbs, and flowers" mean?

Check out our harvest schedule for information on the kinds of veggies, quantities, and production months.

When does the season start?

Usually the first full week of June.

Where do I pick up my share?

Most members come to the farm in Redmond. There are drop sites in Lynnwood and north Seattle.

What are the share pick-up hours?

If you choose the Wed/Thurs slot, you can come after 12:00 noon on Wednesday through 6:00 pm, or Thursday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm. If you choose the Fri/Sat slot, you can come after 12:00 noon on Friday through 6:00 pm, or Saturday 10:00 am - 6:00 pm. If you pick up at a drop site, you would pick up your share there on Wednesday 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm, or anytime Thursday between 8:00 am - 8:00 pm.

Can members change their pick-up day if they are on vacation or for some reason cannot come when scheduled?

Yes, with advance notice to us, both Full and Half share members can re-schedule. Requests need to be emailed by Monday of that week.

In the case of an emergency, we will do everything possible to accommodate.

Can another person pick up our share?

Yes, but they have to come on the scheduled day and hours, and know the last name of the shareholder.

How do the free U-pick items work?

There are lots of herbs (including basil) and greens such as chard, collards, a few different kinds of kale, and mustard greens that members can pick. Again, many members take advantage of this by freezing them for later use. This really increases the value of your share, since, unlike box delivery services, these do not count as an “item” in your share. Members can pick a bouquet of flowers too. Flowers are available from mid-July through September.
