True Community Supported Agriculture

Food, Farming, & Community

At Oxbow, we believe that true Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) goes beyond vegetables; it’s about the connections we make – to the soil, to the farmers, and to a community of friends and neighbors who care about where and how their food is grown.


How Does It Work?

With Oxbow’s new “Market Style CSA,” you’re in control. Instead of receiving a pre-packed box, Shareholders visit our CSA Farm Stand and U-Pick fields every week (or our Farmers Market booths in Issaquah or Mercer Island!) to choose the exact items that your household needs. Bring your own reusable tote bags or boxes, and fill them with a rainbow of fruit and veggies that you select, based on what’s in season!

Craving extra carrots? Want to skip the fennel? Need to take a week off for summer vacation? No problem! Our Market Style CSA offers flexibility and choice in how you choose to put fresh food on the table.

From Farm to Fork

Your support makes an impact before the first seeds even begin to sprout. From selecting quality seeds and organic fertilizers, to purchasing the equipment needed to farm each season, your investment helps to ensure that each and every crisp head of lettuce and crunchy carrot get what it needs to grow – and eventually, nourish YOU! 

We can’t think of a more worthwhile investment.


Oxbow Is Your Farm.

We couldn’t do it without YOU – the “C” in Community Supported Agriculture. We believe that a CSA goes beyond vegetables; it’s a relationship between you, your farmers, and the soil that nourishes us all.

When you visit each week, we invite you to explore. Go ahead, get a little muddy. Chat with our farmers, pick a bouquet of flowers for your neighbors, or bring a picnic and stay awhile. Our farm truly is your farm.
