“Although we started after Winter Session last year, I feel like we have gotten a good feel for the various foods we will enjoy through your farm. I never liked to cook, and mealtimes were very stressful for me. That was until I started getting your farm boxes. Now I look forward every week to Wednesday and figuring out what we are going to eat based on the veggies we receive. You have given me a new excitement for food, and I always pass along your praises (and CSAs in general) to anyone who will listen.”

During the Fall, Winter, and Spring months, we feature three shorter CSA sessions (each one being eight weeks long) that allow you to continue to enjoy fresh, organic produce all year long:
- Fall Session (8 weeks): November through December
- Winter Session (8 weeks): February through Mid-April
- Spring Session (8 weeks): Mid-April through May
The shares during these “off-season” sessions will primarily contain the hearty vegetables and fruit that these months offer us. The produce will either come from Jubilee Farm or will be purchased from other farms that are Certified Organic. We aim to source all of our produce from WA/OR farms but during the tightest months we do sometimes reach out to CA farms as well.
Cooking with local produce in the colder months of the year here in the Pacific Northwest is an immensely rewarding challenge, and to help you work with the delicious produce you receive each week, our own Liz is writing recipes tailored to each week’s box contents – in every box, you’ll receive a boxletter with her recipes and helpful tips for working with your weekly box.
Two share sizes are available in the Fall, Winter and Spring sessions:
THREE QUARTER SHARE
$250 for 8 weeks
The Three Quarter Share is designed to meet the basic needs of a 2 adults or families with one or two small children; it contains about 25% less produce than a Full Share. The cost of delivery is included in this price.
$325 for 8 weeks
The Regular Share is designed to meet the basic needs of a family of four or those folks who like to eat vegetables. The cost of delivery is included in this price.
Our off-season sessions are delivery-only: boxes of produce are available at depots throughout Seattle and the Eastside on Wednesdays from noon – 7 pm.

Fall CSA Session
November – December
The Fall CSA Session captures the remarkable flavors of Autumn in the Pacific Northwest. The produce you receive will be as delicious as it is colorful, and it will provide you with the ideal ingredients for warm, hearty meals that will be perfect for rainy fall days.
As an example, a Fall Session box from a previous year contained apples, fennel, broccoli, carrots, collards, leeks, carnival squash, peppers, crimini mushrooms, pears, acorn squash, and chiogga squash.
Winter CSA Session
February – Mid April
After a hiatus from CSA deliveries in December and January, our Winter CSA Session begins in February and brings with it a selection of the vegetables that define comfort food. You will have all the makings for warming meals that will feed your family during the colder months of the year.
As an example, a Winter Session box from a previous year contained eggs, apples, leeks, carrots, collards, beets, chard, potatoes, and sunchokes.
Spring CSA Session
Mid April – Early June
When the Spring Session arrives, signs of the Pacific Northwest waking up from its winter hibernation start to show.
As an example, a Spring Session box from a previous year contained carrots, rhubarb, watercress, radishes, shallots, mushrooms, rainbow chard, arugula, and asparagus.
