FARM DONATIONS

Since our inception in 2014, we have donated more than 50 percent of our harvest—over 80,000 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.

In partnership with Jewish Family Service and Helping Hand Worldwide, we also provide fresh produce at no cost to military families at a monthly pop-up farm stand at Camp Pendleton. The pop-up stand is open 1 to 3 p.m. on the last Sunday of every month.

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.
