The Baron de Hirsch Fund, New York, was established in 1891 by Baron Maurice de Hirsch to assist and settle Eastern European Jewish immigrants in the U.S. Its objective was to promote the development of Jewish settlements as well as trade schools.  The Jewish Agricultural Society was a subsidiary of the Fund and was chartered in New York in 1900 to provide agricultural training for East European immigrants.  The JAS acquired land in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.  Among its many projects was the Baron de Hirsch Agricultural School, Woodbine, New Jersey.  The JAS published The Jewish Farmer, an English and Yiddish monthly.
