What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way for consumers to buy directly from local farmers in an arrangement that benefits both the farmers and the consumers. "CSA" is not a franchise or a company name; it is simply a way to describe this type of farmer-to-consumer relationship. Members subscribe to the farm and receive a bag of fresh produce each week. The contents of the bag vary, depending on what is in season. Part of the joy of being a CSA member is that our farm becomes your farm. You are welcome to visit and see where your food comes from. The produce is always super-fresh, local (grown right in Morgan Hill), and seasonal.
How does the One Acre Farm CSA work?
Members receive a bag of fresh, organic produce delivered to their home or office every Wednesday. The minimum subscription is four weeks, and we offer substantial discounts for full-season and quarterly memberships. There are three sizes to choose from to fit your vegetable needs: small (5-6 items per week), standard (8-10 items per week), or supersize (9-12 items per week). An "item" might be a bunch of kale, 2lbs. of tomatoes, 1lb. carrots, etc. The items change with the seasons. You can choose weekly or biweekly deliveries. Every delivery includes a newsletter with recipes. To sign up or for more information, please fill out our registration form.
What are the benefits of being a CSA member?
- Convenience – We make eating healthy easier by delivering right to your home or office every week. Recipes are included with every delivery.

- Variety – We grow dozens of kinds of produce and choose varieties with superb flavor.
- Keep it local – Help keep farms in our community by supporting your local small farmers.
- Environmental – We follow organic farming practices that minimize environmental impacts.
- Community – Come meet us and your fellow CSA members. Learn where your food comes from.
We follow organic growing practices and meet or exceed organic growing guidelines. However, we are not certified by the USDA as organic growers. For a farm of our size, the expense and bureaucracy of maintaining certification would outweigh the benefits. We do not use any synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides on our farm, and we follow sustainable farming practices as much as possible. We hope you will get to know us and our farm and will trust us to grow your food.
