Welcome to our 8 week Fall CSA! Here at Working Hands Farm we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality produce and to growing excellent food that is sustainable and affordable for you, the consumer, for the land and us, the farmers.  This way we can farm for years to come and develop long lasting ties to our community and to the beautiful North West.

We limit our CSA to 75 memberships, this keeps our CSA small and gives us the opportunity to get to know all of our members.  It gives you the opportunity to know your farmers (Jess & Brian), to learn how your food is produced, to see our organic methods of growing, to support your local farm and to understand and experience what it means to provide your loved ones with fresh nutrient dense food.


Some of the goods we aim to grow for you during our eight week Fall CSA…

Tomatoes, Peppers, Potatoes, Garlic, Leeks, Onions, Sugar Snap Peas, Butternut, Acorn, Kabocha, Delicata & Spaghetti Squash (my favorite!), Pumpkins, Broccoli, Carrots, Parsnips, Beets, Kale, Chard, Cabbage, Collard Greens, Lettuce Mix, Spinach, Arugula, Mustard Greens, Kohl Rabi, Cauliflower, Cilantro, Chinese Cabbage, Escarole, Endive, Parsnips, Rutabaga, Turnips, Radishes, Brussels Sprouts, etc…

Q & A


How does the Fall CSA work?

Glad you asked!  Our model will be changing for the Fall CSA from Home Delivery to 3 days of Farm Pick Up.  You will pick up your CSA each week between 4-7pm at our farm on your assigned day.  We have extended our pick up times to accommodate those traveling to and from the city (we’re only 17 miles away!)  Throughout our 8-week Fall season we will provide a bountiful crate containing of 8-12 different  items, a list of what is in your crate and corresponding recipes aimed to inspire.  Our CSA shares meet the weekly veggie needs of 2-3 people (or a small family).  The CSA will start on your preferred day, either Tuesday October 8th, Wednesday October 9th or Thursday October 10th and will continue for 8 weeks until Tuesday November 19th, Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st.  The last CSA pick up will be the week before Thanksgiving and on that week you will receive a double share (week 7 AND 8).

How much will it cost, when is payment due etc?

Our 8-week Fall CSA is $336.  CSA shares are available on a first come, first serve payment basis (current members receive an early bird sign up 2 weeks in advance from July 22nd – August 3rd).  New member sign up begins on August 4th.  You will pay a non-refundable $150 deposit to reserve your share that will be due within two weeks of filling out and submitting our online form.  The remaining balance of $186 will be due by September 8th.  Checks should be made out to ‘Working Hands Farm’ and can be dropped off in person during our CSA pick ups or mailed to Working Hands Farm 12101 SW River Rd. Hillsboro, OR 97123.

How do I know if I’m in the CSA?

Once your deposit of $150 is received we will send you a confirmation email welcoming you to our CSA program.  We encourage those members who can to pay the total cost upon signing up.

Will I have the opportunity to chat with my farmers each week?

Great question!  This is something that we believe makes our CSA extra special.  We make ourselves available at each Fall CSA pick up from 4-5pm to chat with our members about a gamut of food/health related topics and issues.  This is one of our favorite parts of the week!

How do I know what day I will pick up on?

You will select the farm pick up day that best suits you from the options available on the online form.  We can only harvest a maximum of 25 shares per day, as it is just Jess and I, so it will be a first come first serve system.  After the first 25 members sign up we will simply remove it from the list of options.  So the sooner you sign up the more options you will have.

Will you have egg shares available to members?

Fall CSA (organic, non-gmo, soy & corn free) eggs will be available à la carte (purchased separately) during farm pick ups!  Due to less light/production and generally a simpler model for the end of the season.

What happens if we can’t come pick up our share or if we will be out of town the week of a drop?

You can either arrange for a friend to pick it up for you or give us 24hr notice and we can donate your box of goodies!
