WEEK-BY-WEEK CSA SHARES STILL AVAILABLE!
Thank you for considering our CSA! Our six week subscription is now closed, but we are still offering week-by-week CSA boxes (called “Farmers Choice” boxes) on our online store. It’s the same as our CSA membership but without the six week commmitment.
Our members are what keep our family farm running in these uncertain times and we are so grateful for your support.
Our Fall CSA is a low-commitment, 6 week program consisting of a weekly pre-packed box with a mix of the best vegetables that we have to offer. Pick-up day will be WEDNESDAYS (Bellingham) or THURSDAYS (Seattle) each week from October 14-November 19.
What is in a box? 7-8 items per week of the best the farm has to offer you, including gold beets, Lacinato kale, sweet onions, garlic, baby arugula, leeks, micro-greens, Yukon Gold potatoes, celeriac, radicchio, carrots, winter squash, rosemary, and more!
WHAT IS A CSA?
CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture.” For our Certified Organic farm, it means a person can sign up to receive a weekly pre-packed box of our highest quality, farmer’s choice vegetables for an interval of time (we like short and sweet 6 week increments so you can enjoy maximum flexibility).
CSAs are an incredible way for community members to support their farmers – payment up front gives us financial security and flexibility – and provides a window into what we at Spring Time Farm are doing. In return, we will provide you with the very best that we are growing!
We are so inspired by the “Community Supported Agriculture” model. Dr. Booker T. Whatley developed the concept of a “clientele membership club” in the 1960s, laying the framework for the contemporary American CSA. Dr. Whatley, born in 1915 in Alabama, was an innovative Black farmer, businessman, and passionate advocate for small farms. Read more about him! We owe Dr. Whatley a debt of gratitude for his enormously important work in regenerative agriculture, social justice, and beyond.
IS OUR CSA RIGHT FOR YOU?
- You want to show solidarity with and support your farmers! CSAs provide up-front income to help us at Spring Time Farm ride the highs (and lows) of each season. Since food access is a bit of a question mark this year, a CSA will provide you with fresh, healthy produce straight from the farm to you.
- You are comfortable with, excited about, and committed to seasonal eating! We will provide suggestions for how to use your veggies, but do not offer any substitutions within shares. If there is something you don’t like, either challenge yourself to “learn-to-love” or gift it.
