Skipping Stone Garden is a 1/4 acre, diverse-vegetable market garden near Mud Bay in Olympia WA, with a second property in West Olympia. Every veggie that comes from our farm is grown with care and harvested fresh by us- Sarah and Gabriel!
Our microgreens are grown in our dining room (no longer a dining room), during winter and in shoulder seasons and grown in our heated nursery in summer.
While we are not currently certified-organic, we use only OMRI-approved organic inputs. We use ecologically-conscious methods of growing such as no/low tillage, cover cropping, and "feeding" compost to the soil - because it takes a whole lot more than just dedicated farmers to grow nutritious, sustainable food.
CSA members will receive a freshly harvested and diverse bag of produce including microgreens once per week during the CSA season. All of the produce is grown by just the two of us, and our members can pick up their weekly bags at market.
By buying in to the farm through purchase of a CSA share, you gain a direct connection to your source of food and fellow community members. You pay in advance for the veggies, and will receive incredible seasonal, fresh veggies every week, but also take on the very same risks we do that go along with the work of planting, caring for and harvesting food. When you join on with us, you become a full partner!
The CSA method of getting produce is a great way to have some portion of your food needs met while maintaining a sense of safety in getting your food. You are also supporting the local supply chain and keeping the local economy in business. Typically in winter and early spring, farms go through a period of reduced to no income. The CSA model fixes that gap, allowing farms to pay their overhead costs and ultimately to grow the food you will receive over the span of the CSA season!
The CSA season begins the weekend of Saturday, June 5 and continues for 22 weeks through Saturday, October 30.
Pickup is on Saturdays at the Olympia Farmers Market between the hours of 10:00am-3:00pm.
The bonus of picking up at the market is you can grab additional goodies from our farm stand, for dinner or meal plans, while you pickup your CSA! The market is full of wonderful, local vendors that you can support as well. Make it a trip and take advantage of the Olympia Farmers Market's safety and health guidelines - see them here.
Worried about crowds? You can pickup a little while before the market officially opens, or come at the end of the day when less people are shopping. We are here to help you feel comfortable in accessing our delicious produce!
“The Little Veggie” share is designed to up your salad game with additional roots and specialty crops alongside it. An example could be a 1/4lb or 1/2 lb salad bag, mini or head lettuce, some roots, a microgreen container, and one or two other seasonal items ( items may vary week to week). This is great for 1-2 people or a family looking to share a couple meals.
$20 per week for 22 weeks
