The tulips are coming up and the berries have budded. We have conventional and organic fertilizer heading onto the damp fields here in Northwest Washington. Spring isn’t waiting for the end of the “Stay, Healthy Stay Home” order, so we can’t either. The team at Skagit Farmers Supply is doing business, although it won’t be “business as usual.” However, our staff is still available to assist you during the planting and growing season.

We have our offices closed to the public, but if you call ahead, we can get orders ready for pick up or delivery. We plan on being open Monday thru Saturday during the season, with Sundays dependent on the weather. Our Lynden location has been stocked with chemicals, as well as conventional, organic and liquid fertilizers. Please contact us to place any custom orders.
We’re staffed and supplied for the spring. The wildcard will be related to any potential impact from the coronavirus on our crew. We’re segregating and practicing social distancing to stay healthy and deliver support to our membership.
If you’ve been a cooperative member for a while, we have the 2009 stock retirement (the remaining 70% of ’09 business) checks heading your way. In June, we have 50% of last years’ business to pay out. It’s nice in these uncertain times to be able to do that. Fertilizer pricing is like last year and fuel prices are down, so that should help heading into the season.
