ORDER YOUR WEEKLY BOX OF FARM-FRESH VEGGIES TODAY!
FOR PICK-UP WEEKLY, OR AS NEEDED, ON WEDNESDAYS
$12 PER BOX ALL SEASON LONG.
You can't get fresher than this unless it’s from your own backyard.
We grow a wide variety of vegetables: Lettuces of many types and colors, multi-colored Swiss Chard, Kale, Collard Greens, fresh Basil and Parsley. Later (July-August) we'll have Broccoli, Summer Squash, Green Beans, Carrots, Tomatoes, Beets, Pickling and Slicing Cucumbers, Onions, Potatoes and more. Your box will contain a selection of the produce we’re harvesting at the time, enough for a small family, and the mix will change through the season. This is known as the Community Supported Agriculture model or CSA.

Wednesday mornings we will deliver CSA boxes to The Murphentile building, 410 Columbia Ave., Northport, WA (map). You just go to the Murphentile after 10am on Wednesday and pick up your box.* Once you sign up, you can order and pre-pay for your boxes online on our website or by check.

* Unclaimed boxes left after close of business on Wednesday, 4:00pm, will be donated. Refunds will not be issued for unclaimed boxes.
Please Note: We are a very small farm. We are off-the-grid, meaning we are solar powered and we have no cell service. We are not able to answer phone calls, texts and emails as they come in since we have the computer turned off most of the time to save energy. We do check messages once or twice a day except for Tuesdays and Wednesdays when we are harvesting and marketing, but we will get back to folks as soon as we can.
Orders must be placed by 7pm on the Monday preceding the desired Wednesday delivery date. Please read everything on this page first and then contact us for the private ordering link.
We use recycled waxed produce boxes for our containers. We firmly believe in and practice "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle." Inside the box on top of the produce will be a damp cotton towel to keep the produce fresh (anything needing to be dry like garlic, etc. will be in plastic bags inside). We wash the boxes and the towels every week. We ask that the boxes and the towels be returned when you get your next order. The boxes can be easily flattened by sliding the tabs that hold them together. Please try not to tear the tabs when flattening the box so we can use them over and over.
While the landowner, Bezaleel Israel (BZ for short) has been farming this ground for 30 years, this is only the second year of intensive market gardening here. Together, BZ and I have over 60 years of organic farming experience. I have operated several market gardens and a couple of CSAs over the years. That said, we are just starting out with this CSA program and had a little problem getting some of our early crops going but if you bear with us I'm sure you will enjoy the produce as the season progresses and hopefully will be a repeat customer next year.
The BZ Farm is not "certified organic" but we do not use synthetic poisons or use GMO seeds (in fact we save the seeds for about 90% of what we grow). We use compost and cover crops primarily for fertility or else soil amendments that are approved for certified organic farms. BZ and I are both experienced permaculturists and we call our produce "Permaculturally-Grown."
When you have the private link to the order form, please read the ordering instructions there carefully. ORDER NO LATER THAN BY 7PM THE MONDAY PRECEDING THE WEDNESDAY YOU WANT TO PICK UP or use the order form to pre-order for future weeks. You don't have to order every week. You can revisit the order form as often as you like.
MAKE SURE YOU SPECIFY THE PICK-UP LOCATION ("Northport" for pick-up at the Murphentile or "Colville" for delivery to the Gifford, Hunters, Inchelium, Rice area by the the Huckleberry Range Community Collective (HRCC). In some rare cases we can make special arrangements.
