Eating healthfully and locally may be one of the best, most achievable New Year’s resolutions to check the waistline, support local farms, fight against climate change, and be a part of our region’s culinary community.

All this got easier thanks to a group of local growers collaborating to provide a multi-farm produce box from mid-January through mid-March. The producers, part of a farmer-owned cooperative known as the SW WA Growers Cooperative, are located in Thurston, Lewis, and Grays Harbor Counties. The multi-farm produce box will provide a diversity of delicious winter produce over 10 weeks from January 18 through March 22.

Available pick-up locations include Whitewood Cider in downtown Olympia, Headless Mumby in west Olympia, the SW WA Food Hub warehouse in Tumwater, and Nature Nurture Farmacy in Chehalis. Boxes are available for purchase now at the SW WA Food Hub website or by contacting info@swwafoodhub.com.

The winter 2023 multi-farm produce box will include a diversity of hearty winter crops such as winter squash, cabbage, carrots, root vegetables, leeks, Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, shallots, potatoes, herbs, and greens.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with SW WA Food Hub Manager to register to get involved with the Multi-farm Produce Box program: info@swwafoodhub.com.
