What a blessing it is to live and work in an agricultural region where there is such an abundance of fresh food and community interaction. We are very excited as the food abundance of the 2012 season approaches with increasing vigor and delicious fresh foods to enjoy
Later this month we will begin delivering fresh organic fruits and vegetables, local meats and cheeses and other select items to nine* pick-up locations in King, Kitsap and Jefferson counties!
As the first step in the Food Hub distribution side of our work, we have absorbed the fruit and vegetable distribution business of All One Family Farm into CCF. For those of you unfamiliar with All One Family Farm’s business you are in store for a treat for this is not just any fruit, or any vegetable or for that matter just any delivery service.
Think Sunkist, tree ripened cherries and peaches direct from the farm. Think melons so sweet your teeth almost hurt or apricots so juicy your shirt gets stained. For me, I think about the families who descend upon us at pick up and the young kids quivering with glee as they chomp down on fresh cherries with juice running down their chins.
For five seasons I had the full time pleasure to bring to over 300 families in 4 counties farm-direct, fully ripened and mature foods from caring farmers both east and west of the hills. Somewhere between being a CSA, a mobile farmers marketand an old time delivery service, we (my daughters and I), from late June through Christmas, delivered an amazing array of products.
Now my beloved business AOFF has become part of CCF and we are poised to begin season number 6 with twice monthly deliveries from late June until at least the end of December!
As in past seasons we will be supplying top quality foods in bulk quantities at fair prices to our larger community. There is no fee to join. There are no commitments to purchase on a regular basis. It is really quite simple and your satisfaction is guaranteed.
By joining our email list you will receive notification when our web store is updated and ready for orders for each delivery cycle. All you do is visit the store, check out what is available and place an order if you see something you like. You’ll have the option to pay via Pay Pal or choose C.O.D and pay cash or check when your order arrives. We do the rest.
So whether you want 5 lbs of cherries, 200 lbs of apricots for canning, 100 lbs of San Marzano tomatoes, frozen pitted pie cherries or 4 lbs of Short’s Family Ground Beef you will find it here.
The All One Family Farm website will be updated shortly with pertinent details of the season as well as options to expand our service area if you are part of a buying club or other group.
So prepare yourselves for an inspiring adventure with us as we navigate Puget Sound in Fuerte, our mostly turquoise 59 Chevy Panel Truck delivering the goods. Great food, great service, great community. I guarantee it!

* Pick-up locations include Woodenville, Mountlake Terrace, Kingston, 2 sites on Bainbridge Island, Chimacum, Port Townsend, Silverdale, and Bremerton.
