Full 2019 DETAILS

Dates

Our CSA runs for 24 weeks, from early June through mid November 



Share Options & Price

Bi-weekly Share: $370 for 12 boxes

If you’re excited about eating fresh produce but don’t want to commit to a weekly box, try the convenience of a bi-weekly share! Your box is the same size and will contain the same delicious items as a weekly share but will be delivered every other week, exactly half the produce of a weekly share. This is the perfect flexible option for individuals, small households, or families just getting into cooking more vegetables!

Weekly Share: $700 for 24 weeks

Our very best value for a bountiful season of fresh produce! We estimate that our balanced weekly shares will feed 2-3 veggie-loving adults or a family of 4.



Pick-ups

  • In Snohomish, on the farm!

  • In Mill Creek (off Dumas Rd.)

  • Possible Sites: we hope to offer the following pick-up sites. Please email us for more information:

    • Redmond

All pick-ups will be on Tuesday afternoons, and we will provide you with exact details before the first CSA distribution.

Pick-Up Site Instructions:

Site-specific instruction will be sent out to members 2 weeks before the start of the CSA.  Members are expected to pick-up their produce in the designated time frame, sign off on a clipboard, keep wax-coated CSA boxes in good shape, and respect the space of our generous site hosts.  

We take the safety of your food seriously. The produce is rinsed in potable water and refrigerated at under 40 degrees. For your added protection, wash all produce before consuming.



Box Contents

Depending on the time of year, a share will generally consist of  8-12 items.

Box values average $30+ over the course of the season, with boxes being lighter in the spring, and heaviest in late summer to early fall.

Your produce will be chosen by the farm based on what is ready to harvest, with variety and menu planning in mind.  A sample box might include: A salad green or two, hearty greens and root vegetables, herbs or onions, snackable vegetables, and a mix of special items in season that week. Though we do our very best, we cannot guarantee that biweekly members will the full variety of items we grow due to timing of harvest.

Please see our website for pictures of boxes from our 2018 program!

We are fortunate to share land, resources, and a spirit of collaboration with our friends and neighbors at One Leaf Farm, who will be supplying a couple of the regular items through the season.  We are excited to have the opportunity to work together to serve you the greatest variety of produce!  



Community

Community and connection are at the core of our CSA!  We want our program to be a platform for meeting new people, exchanging resources, and eating healthfully.  We will share what is going on at the farm regularly on social media and will keep our members updated with a weekly newsletter. Our newsletter will be chock-full of stories, updates, recipes and pictures to help us all stay connected to the rhythms of the changing seasons on the farm and make the most of the CSA box. You will also have special access to a private facebook community group to share recipes, kitchen techniques and resources with each other!  Members have the opportunity to visit the farm for tours and an open house in the Spring & Fall, as well as additional events throughout the season.  Time and time again, our members tell us their connection to the farm is the most meaningful part of the CSA experience!



Sharing in the risks and rewards

We commit to do our very best to provide you with a bountiful, high-quality, and changing share each week. However, our harvest is dependent on nature, and this may impact what we are able to deliver during the season.  Weather, insects, or other unforeseen production factors may impact crops. On the other hand, our members are our first priority, so our CSA program receives produce above all other outlets; if we experience a bumper crop or over-plant, the extra bounty gets passed on to you!

By becoming a member of our CSA you are agreeing to share in these risks and rewards of farming.



Payment

Early payments are absolutely critical to planning and financing the season ahead! For all share types, a minimum non-refundable DEPOSIT of $185 secures your spot in our 2019 CSA season!  You will receive an email from confirming your membership once you have completed your purchase.

*If you choose a payment plan, an invoice and reminder will be sent out at least two weeks before each remaining payment due date.  If circumstances arise that prevent you from paying your balance, please contact us to discuss a plan. If your payment is late and we do not receive notification from you, we will stop packing shares for you until we hear from you. We will communicate with you via email if we can’t deliver your share because of nonpayment. We thank you in advance for understanding.

Payment Options: We offer several payment plans for your convenience!

Weekly:

  • Pay in Full: $700

  • 2 payments: $350 at sign-up; second payment of $350 by August 15th

  • 3 payments:  $185 at sign-up, second payment of $185 by April 15th, third payment of $350 by August 15th

Bi-weekly:

Switching Pick-up Weeks For Bi-Weekly Members

Bi-weekly members will be assigned a pick-up rotation (A week or B week). Once the season begins, if you would prefer to pick up your veggies on an alternate week from which you were assigned, we require at least 2 weeks notice.



Missed Weeks

If members know they are unable to pick up a box they have two options:

a) Have a friend pick it up for you or pass your share on to someone else, just be sure to let them know how and when by sending them pick-up instructions. (CSA boxes make a great gift or treat for a friend)  

b) Skip a week, notify us 24-hours before delivery day so your produce can get to someone who needs it.

Unclaimed boxes will be removed and donated by the site host at the end of the pick-up window.

Newsletter

Each week you will receive a newsletter which will contain a pick-up reminder, a list of your box contents, farm related news and events, recipe suggestions, photos and more.

We will do our best to send The Newsletter 18-24hrs in advance of your pick-up time. Because we harvest on the day of delivery, we will occasionally need to delay the Newsletter so to be sure we are able to include in the box what we promise in the newsletter!
