How It Works
You’ll get a weekly pre-packed box containing a mix of the best Certified Organic vegetables, fruits and herbs we grow. Our CSA is chance to expand your culinary horizons and feed yourself, your family, or your chosen family the best vegetables, grown right here in our community.
Pick-up Wednesdays in West Seattle, Capitol Hill, downtown Bellingham, Fairhaven, or on-farm in Everson.
Here are some CSA highlights:
- FALL SHARE SIZE: Contains between 7-9 different Certified Organic vegetables, fruits, or herbs grown here on the farm. Great for 2-4 folks, depending on how many vegetables you eat. Want more veggies? Head to our online farm store to add on.
- ONLINE FARM STORE: During the season you can add items to your share on week-by-week basis (bulk tomatoes for canning, potatoes for your pantry, flowers from the farm, as well as add-ons from neighboring producers as available).
- UNLIMITED VACATION DAYS. Won’t be around for a pickup? Schedule a vacation day to skip your share that week in exchange for credit you can use on our store during the season.
- WEEKLY NEWSLETTER: We’ll let you know what is in your share each week, along with a few suggested recipes. We love sharing the peaks and valleys of the farming season with our members.
- Pricing for 2023: You can pay the full cost of CSA up-front or in two installments.
|Fall Share||$180 for the season, $36/week||$215 for the season, $43/week|
Our Pricing Structure for 2023.
Why is Seattle more expensive? In short, because the farm is located 11 miles from Bellingham and 111 miles from Seattle. For us to cover our increased costs (a farmers’ cooperative delivers our Seattle CSAs for us) we have to adjust our pricing to reflect this additional weekly expense.

The quality of all the produce was incredible – it’s actually shocking how much more flavorful your produce is than even a high end grocery store.

Knowing I can talk to the farmers (Sarah!) makes it a very personal experience! Vegetables were fresh and delicious! You don’t realize how fresh and delicious until you return to your local grocery store

I love that I get beautiful quality vegetables that I need and a couple things to try . It expands my family’s horizon. This year was especially tasty- my kids would find the carrots ASAP and make them disappear. They are convinced they could never like any other kind of carrot. I’m so thankful that we can have local food – the garlic is my favorite. Thank you!!

Freshness, variety, great communication from our great farmers…a great experience!
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.
