The Root Connection is
Washington State’s first CSA farm. Since 1987, we
have been growing local, chemical-free food for
the community at our 20-acre site in the Sammamish
Valley between Woodinville and Redmond. For those
26 years, we have offered our members the best of
seasonal vegetables, herbs, and flowers grown
right here, for pick-up right here, on the same
day they are harvested.
Our harvest season is 21 weeks
from June through October. Members can pick up
their vegetables within four hours of when they
are picked from the ground! This means that you
are getting the highest quality produce possible,
with superior flavor, texture, and nutrition.
Produce is not stored and transported for days
before it reaches your mouth. In addition to farm
pick-up in Redmond, we have drop sites in Seattle
of the biggest benefits of joining the Root
Connection is that in addition to your weekly
share, members can “U-pick” dozens of types of
greens, herbs, and flowers for free! This adds
even more value to your share. Share cost is only
$33.95 per week!

What Makes the Root Connection
Root Connection isn’t just a place to pick up your
weekly vegetables. Members can fully experience
the farm and see how we all are connected to the
soil and the gifts it gives. It is also a place
for people to come together and feel like they’re
part of a community. Members exchange recipes,
ideas about health, nutrition, organic farming.
Other member benefits include a children’s garden
and free cooking classes

right values in our children."
“I just finished cleaning the 12 gallon bag
of organic produce we get each week during
the summer from the Root Connection…If
you’ve never tasted really fresh produce,
you’re missing out on one of life’s great
treats. Furthermore, the varieties of
produce are optimized for flavor, not
shelf-life like virtually everything you get
in the grocery store. The carrots are
amazingly sweet and crisp (the kids won’t
eat store-bought carrots anymore), the
lettuce tastes like something more than
crunchy water, and the corn (later in the
season) is like nothing you’ve ever had.
Plus, everything is organic, so no scary
poisons for the family, the environment, or
the farm workers.
I’m also happy that the boys can see where
food comes from. There are u-pick fields and
kids gardens plus flowers and herbs for
members. I don’t want the kids to be so
ignorant of where food comes from…If it were
just great produce, our farm share would
still be a good value. It’s good for the
kids, good for the land, and just makes me
