"Know the great reality, the richness of existence that you always encounter. Contemplate its grandeur, its beauty, its precision, its harmony. Be attached to the legions of living things who are constantly bringing forth everything beautiful."
-Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook
Agudas Achim is joining together with Bergefurd Farm Market, a small, family owned farm in Willmington, Ohio to provide you with weekly distributions of fresh, locally grown produce. Each week you can pick up your produce right here at the synagogue!
The CSA pick up will run for approximately 20 weeks, beginning in the first week of June and going through the end of October, weather and season dependent.
Pick up will take place on Thursdays from 4:00-6:00 pm in the Agudas Achim parking lot.
2767 E. Broad Street. Bexley, OH 43209

What you might find in your basket:
- Mixed Greens
- Summer Squash
- Sweet Corn
- Butternut Squash
- Snow Peas
Practices: Bergefurd Farm practices organic crop production methods, follows strict integrated pest management guidelines and uses production practices that limit produce contamination from natural soil and air born diseases and insects.
Cost: Full shares (approximately one bushel in size) are available for $590 (or two installments of $295). Fee includes $550 per share for 20 weeks (June-October). ($27.50 per week + cost of membership = $29.50 per week for fresh locally grown vegetables.) Half shares (approximately one half a bushel) are available for $340 (or two installments of $170). Fee includes $300 per share for 20 weeks (June-October). ($15 per week + cost of membership = $17 per week for fresh locally grown vegetables.)
Membership fee is an additional fee added by the Agudas Achim Synagogue and is not part of Bergefurd Farm Market's pricing for CSA membership.
Membership: As a member, in addition to your weekly share of delicious fruits and veggies, you can expect to receive Bergefurd Farm Market's CSA Friends newsletter which will update you on the farm activities, what is being harvested and planted and what produce to expect in your share in the upcoming week. The newsletter will also provide recipes that can be used with your produce shares along with tips on how to handle, prepare and preserve your produce items.
Other Perks: At every CSA pick up day, members will have the opportunity to buy extra produce to supplement their share. Bergefurd Family Farm will bring their extra fruits and veggies and sell them. So, if you only get one watermelon in your share but are making fruit salad for 30 people, then you can go ahead and buy another watermelon right there! Bergefurd Family Farm Market will also be selling eggs each week that you can purchase when picking up your share!
More Perks: In addition, Agudas Achim will host a monthly Farmers Market in the same location as the CSA pick up! Attendees can expect their usual fantastic CSA share along with music, kids activities, skill share opportunities, kosher baked goods for sale, and other yummy goodies!!! If you have a skill you want to share, let us know!
Even More Perks!!! As a CSA member you will receive a special, personal invitation to Bergefurd Family Farm's annual CSA member Family Fun Fall festival the second weekend in October. On this day you will pick up your weekly share and are invited to bring your entire family out to the farm for a FREE fun filled day of hay rides, educational farm tours, straw bale maze, pumpkin putt- putt, pick your own pumpkin from the field (1 jack o lantern pumpkin included in your CSA membership), pick out your own Indian corn (3 ears included in your CSA membership), pick out your own gourds and mini pumpkins (included in your CSA membership) see the production fields, view the irrigation pond, visit livestock, view the entire farm for yourself, ask questions of the Bergefurd family and just enjoy a fun filled fall day on the farm. There also will be opportunity for your family to participate in our barnyard buddies petting area, visit the clowns, face painting, balloon art, tractor trikes and much more!!!
Volunteer commitment: CSA members are expected to volunteer for one two hour session at one out of the twenty CSA pick up days over the course of the twenty weeks. Sign up for those dates will take place closer to the beginning of the CSA. For those who are not able to volunteer, exceptions can be made.
