Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center

About Oxbow Farm

Oxbow Farm cultivates 30 acres of vegetables, tree fruit, and berries on the banks of an oxbow lake in the lower Snoqualmie Valley. We have been growing food for our customers for 16 years. Our produce is available throughout the greater Seattle area at independent grocery stores, restaurants, and most importantly, through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program.

  • What’s in a box?

  • Oxbow delivers CSA shares for three distinct seasons, and you can choose one or all.

    In the Early Season (May – July), you choose your own contents. Staple Early Season offerings are peas, leafy greens, herbs, and cool-season root crops.

    In the Main Season (July – October), our farmers choose what goes in your box based on what’s fresh, which might include greens, carrots, beets, potatoes, zucchini, broccoli, onions, green beans, and plenty more.

    In the Late Season (October – December), just like the Early Season, you choose the contents. Common Late Season options often include winter squash, brussels sprouts, root vegetables, and a second round of cool-weather favorites.

    You’ll find that on average you’re paying 5-10% less buying directly from Oxbow than you would buying the same produce at a farmers market. And – the OxBox is delivered to a location convenient to you.

    We recognize that one cannot survive on veggies alone! We work with high-quality, local producers to supply a variety of products to round out your healthy meals. Our Add-on shares support local, small, independent businesses committed to the same values we hold ourselves to. They include:

    • Organic Fruit share from Okanogan Producers, a small fruit-grower collective in Eastern WA, where the best heat-loving fruit is grown
    • Sauerkraut sharef rom OlyKraut, a small producer in Olympia
    • Shiitake Mushroom share from our neighbors Sno-Valley Mushrooms
    • Oxbow Honey share from ‘Mat the Bee Guy,’ who manages our bees
    • Coffee share from Anchorhead, fair trade coffee roasted in Duvall

    Your Weekly Box

    Community Supported Agriculture is a mutually supportive agreement in which a farm supplies produce to individuals and households throughout the growing season. A customer (you) pays upfront for a weekly share of produce, and the farm (Oxbow) uses that investment to buy seeds and pay the bills in preparation for that year’s production. Once the crops are growing, we deliver a weekly box of assorted fruit and vegetables to a pick-up site near you from roughly May through December.

    By participating in a CSA you help ensure a local source of fresh food for the community, and share in the rewards of farming, becoming intimately connected to the natural cycle of seasonal harvests.

    In the Seattle area you can choose among several CSA’s, all providing a great local food opportunity. We are proud to be a nonprofit organization working to find ways that humans can use the land responsibly and invite you to join us for our season.

We deliver on Tuesdays & Fridays and ALL produce is harvested to order, Meaning most everything is harvested the day before delivery with our delicate crops, like lettuces, harvested the morning of delivery. We are also very particular about our processing & quality control, so the produce you receive is gorgeous and ready to use!
