Shipki Farm is an Eastern European inspired mini-farm, using French and Biointensive
methods to grow the best Pacific Northwest & European varieties of vegetables, herbs and fruits.
Bio-intensive gardening is considered to be the highest level of organic gardening. It is a whole-system approach that brings together nourishment, efficiency and sustainability.
French Intensive gardening, originally developed for use in narrow back yards in France, yields the most produce for the least area of any realistic gardening method. Using these methods, which include Deep Soil Preparation, inter cropping, Companion Planting and Whole-System Approach, results in a garden that produces a complete diet in the smallest area.
We invite you to enjoy our bounty by becoming a subscriber to the farm and participating in our CSA. By purchasing a share, not only will you receive a weekly box of fresh, local produce, but you will help to support the growers in your community, becoming a “stake holder” in the farm! We also offer the option to order “a la carte” from our weekly market sheet. Share your email with us to receive a weekly list of available produce and extras.
The CSA program is one of the most powerful tools we have for re-building a more local and equitable agricultural system. It allows the grower to focus on growing food and maintaining a productive and profitable small farm. Remember, small is beautiful! So eat local, and connect with our farm throughout the year—become a Shipki Farm CSA member!
