What is a (J)CSA?
(Jewish) Community Supported Agriculture is a weekly vegetable subscription service that connects customers directly to their local farmer. Each week, you'll receive a box of 6 to 8 seasonal vegetables – the best and freshest of what's available on the farm.
Being a part of a CSA is a powerful way to support your farmer. Because CSA customers pay up front for the season, CSAs provide small farmers with financial security while also guaranteeing customers a fresh supply of local veggies every week. It’s a life-changing way to eat seasonally and support your local Jewish farmer!
What will I get?
A weekly delivery of fresh vegetables to Beth El, the Levin JCC, or downtown Hillsborough.
A weekly newsletter filled with photos and updates from the farm, info on the veggies in your box, and our favorite recipes!
Invitations to events at the farm.
The opportunity to directly support young farmers. JCSA stands for "Jewish Community Supported Agriculture." It's a particularly powerful way to support your farmers, because it provides funds to the farmers at the beginning of the season and guarantees a home for our produce.

Quotes from Current Members
"Being part of One Soil's JCSA connects me to my roots, in a very real sense. It is rare these days to eat food grown by someone you know, with great care and love, in your own community. It feels deep and ancient and very Jewish. Eating these beautiful veggies fills my day with joy and my heart with gratitude! "
- Eliana Light, Beth El Member and Jewish Spiritual Leader
"We have loved being a part of Meredith's CSA the last few years. Her produce is always beautiful and it's so fun to anticipate what's going to be in the next week's bag. The size and variety was super manageable for our family of four."

"Our family absolutely loves the One Soil Farm JCSA. The veggies are delicious and you can truly taste the love and care in everything Meredith grows."

What is a "JCSA"?
(Jewish) Community Supported Agriculture is a weekly vegetable subscription service that connects customers directly to their local farmer. CSA members receive a weekly share of vegetables throughout the farming season, with each week's selection reflecting what is in abundance on the farm that week. Because CSA customers pay up front for the season, CSAs provide small farmers with financial security while also guaranteeing customers a fresh supply of local veggies every week.
What kinds of vegetables will I receive?
Each week, you’ll receive the freshest vegetables in season. We grow a huge variety of vegetables and work hard to switch things up each week!
Are your vegetables organic?
While we are not yet certified organic, we follow organic guidelines in all of our growing practices. Every decision we make is based on the health of our customers and the soil we grow in.
Can I pay in installments?
Yes. It's a big help to the farm if you pay in full at sign-up, but it's also fine to pay in installments. If you're worried the installment plan won't work for you, please reach out by email and we'll see if we can work something out.
Do you offer a smaller share?
At this time, no. If you're worried that a share is too much for you, we recommend pairing up with a friend to alternate pick-up weeks! You can simply list both of your names on your account when you sign up.
What if I go out of town and have to miss a box?
If you need to miss a week of JCSA pickup, you can either transfer your box to a friend that week, or we’ll donate your box for you to a family in need! Simply let us know by email the week before.
