Get to Know your Farmers
Five farms have joined together to create this collaborative CSA. This collaborative effort allows these farms to expand the number of CSA memberships they are able support during the peak of the season while maintaining a delightful variety of produce.
The Case's Ready for Pumpkin Season
The Case Farm, located north of Oak Harbor, was purchased 115 years ago by Civil War veteran, Alonzo Case. It is still home to several generations of his descendants. This rustic, old-fashioned farm is being worked by Alonzo's great-granddaughter, Sheila Case, and family. We produce beef calves, hay and grain, and vegetables and plant starts. In October, we open our pumpkin patch to U-Pick and offer many kinds of winter squash, onions, and other fall produce for sale.
Kettle's Edge Farm
Kylie and John
Kettle's Edge is market garden farm on the edge of Ebey's Prairie. Our purpose is to cultivate and deliver the highest quality fresh produce through the use of sustainable agricultural practices. We are not a certified organic grower, but we use no pesticides or herbicides. We sell a diverse variety of produce at the Coupeville and Oak Harbor Farmers markets, through the North Whidbey CSA, to several of our local restaurants and at our on-site farm stand. Stop in and pay us a visit.
Linda Bartlett and Crew
Rosehip is a small-scale, diversified farm producing organically grown fruits and vegetables for sale through CSA membership, Coupeville Farmers' Market, our on-farm produce stand, and to local
restaurants. We produce over 60 vegetable varieties with an emphasis on heirlooms suitable to this climate. We have a small orchard with apple, pear, plum, peach, and apricot. Rosehip also grows cut flowers and a nice selection of nursery plants suitable for Whidbey Island growing conditions. We also have fabulous chicken and duck eggs from free-ranged, organically-fed fowl.
Prairie Bottom Farm
Wilbur and Julieanna Purdue
Prairie Bottom Farm is a small, family-run market garden located in the heart of Whidbey Islands' Ebey's Reserve. We provide affordable, locally-grown, hand-crafted seasonal produce (from artichokes to zucchini), free from pesticides and herbicides to local farmers' markets, CSA members, and local restaurants.
Willowood Farm is a fourth generation historic farm located in the heart of the Ebey's Reserve National Historic Park in Coupeville on Whidbey Island. Farmer Georgie Smith uses organic practices (to practice, not certified) to raise over 200 named varieties of vegetable plants. Crops include garlic, potatoes, onions, lettuce, salad greens, broccoli, dry beans, tomatoes, carrots, beets, celery, parsnip, rutabagas, turnips, fresh beans, summer squash, winter squash, and more! You can find Willowood Farm products at the Coupeville and Bayview Farmers' Markets or being served at many fine restaurants on Whidbey Island and in Skagit and King Counties.

Willowood sells primarily to the restaurant market, but shares some of her produce with our CSA. You'll also find her produce at some local stores, including the 3 Sisters Farm Store on SR 20 overlooking Penn Cove.
