General Member Program Questions

When you become a Member of Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center, you support our work to inspire people to eat healthy, sustainably grown food and to steward our natural resources for future generations. Oxbow’s work goes beyond farming: it also supports building healthy food systems through conservation and land stewardship, increasing awareness and availability of native plants, and teaching people of all ages about agriculture and the environment. 

Membership is the best way to connect with Oxbow and live your values – by supporting a nonprofit dedicated to making positive, lasting impact on our planet and our local food system.

Membership gets you:

Oxbow’s Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program and Member Program are two of the many ways that you can support Oxbow’s work and mission. What’s the difference between the two programs? 

CSA Shareholders make an up-front investment that supports our farmers in all aspects of the CSA seasons. In return, Shareholders receive a weekly “Share” of produce (which averages out to about $30/week) that they select themselves at our on-site Farm Stand, or at select Seattle-area Farmers Markets. Oxbow’s CSA gives participants the choice to select the veggies they want and need, provides regular U-Pick access, and connects them directly to the people who grow their food and care for the land! Learn more about Oxbow’s CSA here.

Oxbow’s Member Program supports all areas of Oxbow’s work. Membership is valid for 365 days, during which Members have access to a host of benefits including event invitations, exclusive members-only U-Pick days, Farm Stand discounts, and more. If you’re not able to come out to Oxbow frequently or don’t need your fridge stocked with a weekly haul of veggies, the Member Program is a great way to show your support of our work and mission!

Oxbow Members get a 10% discount on CSA Shares and a 10% discount at the Farm Stand. 

Oxbow is located in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley, nestled between the cities of Duvall and Carnation off of Hwy 203. Our Farm Stand is located on-site. We’re just 25 miles from Seattle! Get detailed driving directions and other visitor info here.

We are open to Members and the public 10am-4pm Saturdays and Sundays when the Farm Stand is open and during special events, UPick days (Members and CSA holders only), and the month of Oxtober. Other special Members-only opportunities will be announced throughout the year.

Yes, and thank you for sharing the Oxbow experience with friends and family! Oxbow Membership allows four additional sub-members to be added to your membership. Whether they’re your partner and kids, your roommates, or your neighbors down the street, share with whomever you like (but please leave your furry friends at home)!

If you have any questions, please contact us at 425-788-1134 or email members@oxbow.org.

U-Pick is a fantastic time for all, and is a wonderful opportunity to connect with the land that feeds us! Get detailed information about U-Pick here.
