WHO WE SERVE
Since our inception in 2014, we have distributed more than 200,000 pounds to the community through our on-site pay-what-you-can Farm Stand, pop-up farm stands at Vista Community Clinic and Camp Pendleton, a produce delivery program for Holocaust survivors and their families, and donations to local hunger relief organizations. Our community partners include St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Community Resource Center, Kitchens for Good, Helping Hand Worldwide, Mercy Housing, and Jewish Family Service. More than half our harvest has been donated to community members that need it most.
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, Apple Pay, and CalFresh EBT.
