Frequently asked Questions
How does the CSA work?
Put simply, you sign up for a season of deliveries, and we grow and source a season of excellent produce for you. Our Summer/Fall season is twenty weeks from mid-June through October, and our Winter/Spring season is 13 bimonthly deliveries from November through May.
What's in each box?
Box contents will vary each week, depending on what's fresh and available from northwest farms. Each delivery will contain about 7-11 items for the standard share, 8-13 items for the family share. Expect fresh greens and Spring veggies like peas and light greens early in the season, green beans, berries, zucchini and carrots in the Summer, and tomatoes, sweet corn, and cucumbers as the season tends toward Autumn. Flowers in season will also be included occasionally. Winter shares will include a variety of vegetables including carrots, potatoes, onions, greens, squash, and so much more. We also include organic fruit with each delivery.
Where do I pick up produce?
We set up neighborhood drop sites to make it easy for you to pick up your produce at a time that works best for you. Established drop sites are located at:
the Farm in Curtis
Chehalis-Market Street downtown
Centralia-Centralia College Blvd
Olympia-Yelm Hwy at Henderson
Tacoma-North Fife St

When is pick up?
Pick up times are designed to accommodate work schedules. Most drop sites will be open for at least 3 hours in late afternoon for folks to pick up after work.
What is the cost?
Summer Family shares are $40 per week, for a total of $800 ($775 if paid in full by May 15th)
Summer Standard shares are $30 per week, for a total of $600 ($575 if paid in full by May 15th)
Winter shares are $65 per delivery, for a total of $845 ($820 if paid in full by November 10th)
Do I have to sign up for the whole season?
Yup. The nature of Community Supported Agriculture is that we sign up to grow your food, and you sign up to receive it. This keeps us farming during the busiest parts of the season instead of trying to sell produce and juggle logistics. It also gets you some really outstanding produce delivered to your neighborhood, along with recipes, storage tips, and hopefully a trip or two out to the farm!
What if I have to cancel?
We understand that sometimes life happens and extenuating circumstances occur. Although we are not able to offer refunds (your produce dollars are invested directly into our soil, seeds, and infrastructure), we can work with you to offer some alternatives. If you're really unsure if you can commit to the whole season, sign up for the payments option so you're only committed for four delivery increments.
