Wholesale quantities of certified organic winter storage vegetables, Sept-March. Winter CSA in Seattle and Skagit, Oct-Feb. Organic cut flowers, June-September.
Boldly Grown Farm is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jacob Slosberg and Amy Frye. We focus on wholesale quantities of Certified Organic storage crops to extend the availability of local foods over the winter. We specialize in carrots, beets, potatoes, winter squash, radicchio, onions and fall brassicas like broccoli, cabbage, kale, and kohlrabi. We also grow cut flowers for sale and to provide pollinator habitat. We are currently farming at Viva Farms, an incubator farm in Burlington, WA.
Boldly Grown produce is available via the Puget Sound Food Hub, the Skagit Valley Food Co-op in Mount Vernon, the Community Food Co-ops in Bellingham, Frank’s Produce in Seattle, and numerous other retailers and restaurants in Western Washington. We supply to schools, hospitals and food banks, and we also run a winter CSA in Seattle and Skagit County from Oct-Feb. Our cut flowers are available at the Skagit Valley Food Co-op, and bulk buckets are available from us directly for events from Jun-Sep.
CSA details: Boldly Grown Farm runs a winter CSA in Seattle and Skagit County. Our goal is to provide you with staple veggies that are in-season and available over the winter months, helping to promote local eating beyond just the main growing season. Boxes are provided every other week from late October through February. Current drop sites include Ravenna neighborhood in Seattle and Mount Vernon; these may expand based on member interest. A winter box might look something like: 3 lbs orange carrots, 1 bunch red beets, 1 bunch curly kale, 1 red kuri squash, 1 head broccoli, 1 head Chioggia radicchio, 3 bulbs garlic, 4 lbs russet potatoes, 2 lbs onions. More details and sign up information will be posted on our website by mid-summer 2017.
Farm practices: We are Certified Organic. This means that we grow our crops without the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. We use cover cropping and crop rotations to improve soil fertility, build organic matter, and manage diseases. We control pests by providing habitat for beneficial insects, scheduled monitoring, and organic inputs when necessary. Weeds are managed through tractor cultivation and a whole lot of hand weeding! In future years we hope to incorporate grains and pastured poultry into our farm, creating a diverse and resilient agroecosystem.
