“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.”
CSA member Emily B.
During the Fall, Winter, and Spring months, we feature four shorter CSA sessions (each one being six weeks long) that allow you to continue to enjoy fresh, organic produce all year long:
- Fall Session (6 weeks): November through December
- Winter Session (6 weeks): February through March
- Early Spring Session (6 weeks): March through April
- Late Spring Session (6 weeks): May through June
The shares during these “off-season” sessions will primarily contain fresh fruit and vegetables that feature the hearty bounty that these months offer us. The produce will either come from Jubilee Farm or will be purchased from other farmers that are Certified Organic – including locally-raised eggs and mushrooms, for added variety!
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 beautiful produce you receive each week, Heather Logan – chef at the Juicebox in Seattle and blogger at Kailyard Kitchen – has provided recipes and tips!
Two share sizes are available in the Fall, Winter, Early Spring, and Late Spring sessions:
THREE QUARTER SHARE
$200 for 6 weeks
The Three Quarter Share is designed to meet the needs of a small family or families that don’t eat a lot of vegetables; it contains about 25% less produce than a Regular Share. The cost of delivery is included in this price.
$250 for 6 weeks
The Regular Share is designed to meet the needs of a family of four 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 truly 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 – March
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 nourish your family during the colder months of the year.
As an example, a Winter Session box from a previous year contained eggs, apples, broccoli, leeks, carrots, collards, beets, chard, potatoes, and watercress.
Early Spring CSA Session
March – April
When the Early Spring Session arrives, signs of the Pacific Northwest waking up from its winter hibernation start to show.
As an example, an Early Spring Session box from a previous year contained carrots, apples, cauliflower, radishes, shallots, mushrooms, rainbow chard, arugula, and romaine lettuce.
Late Spring CSA Session
May – June
The Late Spring Session starts to bring us a greater variety of seasonal flavors, and beautiful greens in greater abundance accompany the root veggies that have been a staple during the cold months.
As an example, a Late Spring Session box from a previous year contained arugula, fuji apples, asparagus, kale, leeks, russet potatoes, red leaf lettuce, bunched turnips, and braising mix.
