Harvesting Calendar

Get New Jersey-grown, farm-fresh produce from Donaldson Farms! For more than 100 years, the Donaldson family has been keeping the Hackettstown area healthy with its wide variety of farm-grown produce.

Items available all season in our farm market may be sourced from farms with year-round operations prior to and after our NJ harvest season. From Our Own Fields dates, displayed in the chart below, indicate approximately when our produce is fresh from Donaldson Farms’ own fields. Note – The 2020 growing season got off to a slow start due to colder than normal weather conditions – some crops may run a week or two behind schedule. Please check with us if you have any questions.
