Our first pick of the 2019 season will be late July or early August.
We are widely known for our high quality pickling cucumbers. Our harvest season typically runs from late-July through mid-September. We pick every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. They are picked in the cool of the morning then immediately washed, sorted, bagged, and put in the cooler to ensure freshness.
Picking up at the Farmers Market: Cucumbers will be available at our booth at the Olympia Farmers Market Thursday-Sunday or the Tacoma Proctor market on Saturdays. I recommend showing up early in the market day as they sometimes sell out fast. If you want more than 25#, consider placing an order ahead of time.
Picking up at the Farm: You can stop by Mon, Wed, or Fri between 1-3. I’ll try to post someone near the barn to keep an eye out for you. Park next to the gray metal barn. That time frame doesn’t work for you? Call ahead to arrange a specific day/time to meet. We’re pretty flexible.
Placing Orders: If you need a large quantity we strongly advise you to place an order to be sure that you get what you want when you want it. Call the farm 360-273-5368 or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can pick up your order at the farm, the Olympia Farmers Market, the Tacoma Proctor Market, or at your CSA pick-up site.
A Few Helpful Hints
-It takes about 1 pound of cucumbers to fill a quart jar regardless of size, if kept whole.
-1 bunch of dill is enough for 10 lbs of cucumbers.
-It is best to can your pickles within a few days of picking.
Sorry, we cannot ship these babies. We looked into the cost of shipping via UPS, Fed ex, and the good old US Postal service. The rates would make your jaw drop, seriously. Your best bet is to go to your local farmers market and ask all the farmers about who grows them near you and when they are in season. Good luck!
