Do you love good food?
When you join our farm’s CSA program, you’ll receive a weekly box of fresh-picked, organic produce grown on our organic farm! Our staff and students strive to deliver the freshest most delicious produce possible and we think you’ll love how it’ll make your meals extraordinary! Plus, joining a CSA is a great way to eat healthier, save money and feel more connected to the source of your food.
A unique benefit of joining the Organic Farm School’s CSA program is that you also directly support the training of the next generation of organic farmers. The Organic Farm School (OFS) is a non-profit organization that trains aspiring farmers to start and manage small-scale organic farms through academic and experiential studies, including work on the OFS farm. The CSA produce is grown by the students in the program with guidance and oversight from our experienced farm managers and instructors.
We would love for you to join the OFS community in growing the farmers of the future - while enjoying delicious, seasonal organic produce in the process!

How it works:
When you join our CSA program, you are purchasing a subscription (or "share") for a weekly assortment of fresh-picked, organic produce from our farm. Once a week, you pick up your produce at a convenient spot, take it home and, with help from our weekly newsletter, turn it into delicious meals! Most of our CSA pick-up spots are staffed by OFS staff and students and members are welcome to visit and discuss food, farming and life.
The CSA runs every Wednesday from May 31st to November 1st (23 weeks) , for a total price of $460 (only $20/week and a 15% discount off retail prices).
We have three locations to choose from to pick up your CSA share:
- Maxwelton Valley on south Whidbey Island
- Greenbank in central Whidbey Island
- Third Place Books in Seattle's Ravenna neighborhood.
About the share:
Our share will on average consist of 7-8 types of fresh seasonal vegetables harvested the day of delivery. Generally, this feeds 1-3 people who enjoy cooking with vegetables. As examples of what to expect, a spring-time box might include radishes, kale, salad mix, and snap peas; a summer box could include tomatoes, basil, garlic, summer squash, and butterhead lettuce; and for fall you could expect leeks, spinach, winter squash, potatoes, and onions. All of our produce is certified organic by WSDA and we work hard to make sure that when you pick it up, it's as fresh and vibrant as it was in the field!
Add pastured poultry!
From July through the end of the season, you'll also have the option to purchase one or more of our pasture-raised broiler chickens to be delivered with your weekly share (chickens will be frozen). Our birds spend their days roaming on fresh pasture, are fed organic grain and basically live like kings and queens!
