FARM DONATIONS

Since our inception in 2014, we have donated more than 50 percent of our harvest—nearly 90,000 pounds—to those who lack access to fresh food through our on-site pay-what-you-can Farm Stand, pop-up farm stands, and direct donations to local hunger relief organizations. Our community partners include St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Community Resource Center, Kitchens for Good, and Jewish Family Service.

FARM STAND

Hours of Operation and Location
Sundays, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Thursdays, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Coastal Roots Farm
441 Saxony Road
Encinitas, CA

PLEASE NOTE: The Farm Stand will be closed on Sunday, May 20 in observance of the Jewish holiday Shavuot.

Throughout the year, we offer an abundance of fresh vegetables, herbs, fruit, flowers, and eggs at our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand. Our produce is certified organic and always grown with the utmost care for people and the land. We use sustainable practices and our farming reflects generations-old Jewish agricultural traditions. The Farm Stand is open to everyone. Donations are encouraged for farm produce, but no one is turned away for inability to pay. We accept cash, credit, and CalFresh EBT.

Our pay-what-you-can Farm Stand is a social enterprise that supports our goal to ensure that everyone in the community has fair, equal, and dignified access to local, fresh, seasonal, and sustainably-grown food.

CSA

Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program is a social enterprise that supports our goals to connect people to the land, shorten the distance between farm and table, create a vibrant local community, empower young farmers, and increase access to fresh, local produce for the food- and nutrition-insecure in our community.

Our CSA boxes feature fresh, seasonal, and certified-organic produce. Members receive storage and nutrition information, cooking tips, and recipes with each week’s box, along with exclusive invitations to potlucks and farm tours.

Our CSA program is on pause for the spring season. We will continue to provide boxes of veggies—at no cost—to our vulnerable neighbors, including Holocaust survivors and their families. Check back soon for details on the next season’s CSA!
