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. Most of our members pick up their produce
right here at the farm.
Our harvest season
is 21 weeks from June through October. Members can pick up their
vegetables within just 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 and Lynnwood.
One 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 $35 per week! (or less if you pay early for a discount)

What Makes the Root Connection So Special?
The 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. Children learn about
how vegetables grow first hand in the

"A walk through the farm makes your day end in a smile."
all feel more connected with the earth and with the life that springs
forth from it to nourish our beings. I felt like the veggies came from
a friend's garden."
for giving me an invaluable gift for 13 years!"
"We love the
farm! It's a very important part of our week and helps instill the
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 happy…”
