Spring Time Farm is offering a FULL SEASON CSA to Whatcom County and Seattle. Our CSA is a 20 week program consisting of a weekly pre-packed box with a mix of the best Certified Organic vegetables, fruits and herbs this region has to offer. By becoming a member, you will have a direct connection to your farmers (us) and delicious, gorgeous, Certified Organic, in-season produce grown on our farm. We strive for extremely high quality and high nutritional value. Wednesdays, May 5 – September 15.
Do you want to eat incredibly well and support your farmers? CSAs provide up-front income to help us at Spring Time Farm ride the highs (and lows) of each season. Our CSA will provide you with fresh, healthy produce straight from the farm. Are you comfortable with, excited about, and committed to seasonal eating? Learn more below.
OUR CSA OFFERS
- Choose between two share sizes:
- Full Share (8-10 vegetables, fruits or herbs/week). Great for vegetable-loving pairs or 2-4 folks who eat moderate amounts of produce.
- Petite Share (5-7 vegetables, fruits or herbs/week). Great for vegetable-loving individuals or small households that dine out occasionally.
- We host an online farm store for our members! During the season you can add items to your share on week-by-week basis (flats of strawberries, bulk tomatoes for canning or flowers from the farm, as well as add-ons from neighboring producers as available – possibly pork, eggs, mushrooms, etc). We will let you know what the ordering hours/deadlines are.
- We offer two vacation days per session.
- For more details and rewards, please read our Member Agreement.
- A chance to expand your culinary horizons and feed yourself, your family, your chosen family, or your pod the best vegetables, grown right here in our community.
- A connection with your farmers as we share the peaks and valleys of the farming season (every year is different)! We’ll share farm updates in our weekly newsletter as well on Instagram and our website. It’s important to us that you have opportunities to learn how we grow your vegetables, and we’re always open to questions!
- If COVID allows (at our discretion), we’ll open the farm for an end-of-season farm visit for our members. We’re also hoping to allow a periodic free U-pick flower perk for members.
What are the origins of the 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.
CSAs are an incredible way for community members to support their farmers – payment up front gives us financial security and flexibility, empowering our local food systems – 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 this 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. We owe Dr. Whatley a debt of gratitude for his enormously important work in regenerative agriculture, social justice, and beyond.

First and foremost, THANK YOU! I looked forward to my Spring CSA box every week. On Tuesday night I would excitedly read the weekly newsletter to see what we would be receiving. Your CSA was a bright spot in a weird, pretty dark time. I will always remember that Pandemic Spring spent eating salad at every meal with my roommate. Thank you for nourishing us ❤
