Our farmers work hard to produce fresh, high quality produce for our Farm Market, CSA Program, and Tailgate Markets. Although our crops vary by season, there’s lots of fresh, homegrown produce available throughout the year.
Homegrown Crops Include:
Apples, Beans, Beets, Blackberries, Blueberries, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cantaloupe Melon, Cauliflower, Collards, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Herbs, Kale, Kohlrabi, Lettuce, Mustard Greens, Onions, Peas, Peppers, Pickles, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radishes, Strawberries, Sweet Corn, Tomatoes, Turnips, Watermelon, Zucchini and Assorted Squash, and More!
Are We Organic?
Well … define organic! Our produce is NOT organic, in the true sense of the word. We use conventional and sustainable farming methods and participate in an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) Program. We hire Rutgers Cooperative Extension employees to scout our fields a few times a week and make suggestions as to what (and when) we need to apply to our crops so we can be assured of quality produce to harvest. Many of our crops never have any chemicals used for their production, but to be called organic the ground they grow in must be chemical free for 10 years. We also apply granular fertilizers to our crops, something that is not allowed when growing true organic produce. Our farmers use sustainable farming methods and are committed to our soils, our land, and our environment. Although we cannot successfully grow the acreage we do organically, we are as “organic” as we possibly can be. So to answer the question, NO, we are not organic, but we are responsible. We feel it’s important for consumers to know their farmer and know where their food comes from. You can do that by buying fresh, and buying local!
