Young Vegetable Plants Kingston Farms, WA

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

Would you like to receive a box of fresh-picked vegetables every week or two? If so, CSA may be the perfect fit for you.

What is CSA?

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) started in the 1980s. It’s a beautiful way for families to connect with farmers. As a family, you can count on a steady stream of fresh produce from late spring through late fall. (With the caveat that occasionally “Mother Nature” has her own plans and some harvests are light.). As a farming family, CSA makes it easier for us to plan how much of each type of crop to grow. Learn more about CSA’s here. If CSA isn’t the right fit, check out more ways to buy including our farm stand in Kingston, WA.

How CSA Works

Simply purchase your subscription before the season begins then relax. Whether you choose weekly or bi-weekly service from approximately mid/late June through mid-October, a box filled with a variety of fresh produce will be ready for you to pick up at Fat Turnip Farms. The peak of our season usually begins in August, so this is when the most choices are available. 


CSA ordering is OPEN for the 2024 season until January 30, 2024 or until sold out.

We plan to provide boxes from mid-June through mid-October (approx. 16 – 18 weeks, depending on the weather). Select weekly or bi-weekly boxes of our produce and Eastern Washington fruit at your option.

If we can start in June, boxes will likely contain mixes of lettuce, beets (red and golden), cucumbers, turnips, radishes, summer squash, broccoli, spinach, and new potatoes. These are usually the first items whether starting in June or July.

In July, green beans, yellow beans, peas, pickling cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage, kohlrabi, cauliflower, potatoes, carrots (orange and yellow), and herbs can be added to the mix.

In August, we are usually able to add Walla Walla sweet onions, mixed peppers (hot and sweet), eggplant, basil, melons, sweet corn (white, yellow, bi-color), and tomatoes. The latter part of August includes brussels sprouts and artichokes, although they may start early if they overwinter well.

September likely includes cantaloupe, leeks, a large variety of winter squash, and a random mix of the above items.

October offerings usually include winter squash, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, brussels sprouts, beets, Eastern Washington apples, pears, and other miscellaneous products.

Our goal is to provide a hearty mix of vegetables throughout the growing season. As the season changes, the mix of produce will change accordingly and continue into October. Every crop we grow is not listed here, and weather can alter the start and end dates of each particular vegetable.  Each CSA share will be assigned to one of our staff along with a contact phone number.  If you are going to be out of town, have questions or need to make some changes regarding your CSA, your Fat Turnip Farms staff person will be your point of contact for the entire season.

Program start and end dates are weather dependent as well as the start and end times for each crop.

We haul quite a bit of fruit from our connections in Eastern Washington, so for each option you’ll have the ability to add mix/add fruit as the season progresses.  You’ll work directly with your CSA representative at the farm to help ensure that you get items you’ll eat, and also new ones that you know you need to try.

For those returning to the program, we welcome you back!  For those new to the program, be sure to ask a lot of questions and get connected!
