We’ve moved to Africatown!
Pre-Order is Now Open for Pickup on Dec. 16th
The way that this works is that the member (you) orders via the above linked form. We will host two pickups a month, on the first Saturday and the third Sunday at Africatown as well as take feed and supplies to our West End and North End sites on those days. Once you place your order via the link above SFC staff will send an electronic invoice to you and your pickup instructions will be given to you based on the location you picked. All orders need to be prepaid. Unpaid orders will not be placed with our suppliers and you will not get your products. The Co Op will place orders for exactly whats been purchased, so please plan ahead. Pickup locations are in N. Seattle, W. Seattle, and Africatown.
Seattle Farm Co-op supports the urban farming community, food justice, and the sustainable food movement by offering educational outreach and operating a retail outlet that sells high quality, organic, non GMO feed, seed, fertilizers and locally sourced goods at affordable prices.
History of the Co-op
Seattle Farm Co-op (SFC) is the only co-op retail store selling feed and seed in the south end of Seattle. The co-op is member-owned. We focus on obtaining supplies such as animal feed, straw, bedding, compost, fertilizer, and seeds from local & sustainable sources.
The Co-op originated in 2009 as a grassroots buyers club, by five Seattleites committed to supplying local farmers and gardeners with quality, affordable products that they couldn’t get elsewhere within the city limits. In 2013, it was officially established as a co-operative focused on fostering a great sense of community amongst our members.
The Seattle Farm Co-op continually strives to be a resource for both material supplies and knowledge for the urban farming community. We do this by providing access to sustainably sourced goods, with a considerable focus on supplying organic, non-gmo, and pesticide free products to urban farmers – including feed, seed, and fertilizers. We aim to expand our educational outreach with youth to the greater Seattle area, on topics such as, growth in the local food justice and food sustainability movements. The Seattle Farm Co-op recognizes the importance of fostering a connection between resources and urban farmers to create a local, sustainable food system for our members and the outlying community, whether in a community garden setting or for those wanting to farm their own land.
Since moving to the south end in Seattle, the SFC has been embraced by the community with membership growing to well over 900! The Co Op was once again forced to move as a result of displacement and unsustainable development in the city that has pushed many small businesses away. We are determined to stay in the Rainier Valley and will be partnering with Africatown to host bulk buy pickups.
