This “pick your own” meets “cooking class” meets “farm to table dinner” is an amazing interactive experience unlike any other in New Jersey.

    SOURCE: Wild New Jersey
    PICTURE THIS: Rows and rows of the huge, bold faces – all the same yet each one different. Some with the deep yellow tones, shadows, lines and discolorations of age; some bright and canary yellow at the peak of their youth… The sunflowers though, as appealing as they are to see, are more than a petty face and there are many reasons why more and more New Jersey farmers are going for the gold by making them part of their summer crops.

  • “Diversity in Suburbia: Success for surrounded family farm”

    SOURCE: Growing Magazine Online
    Greg Donaldson’s on-farm retail market has reached its capacity. Not that it’s too small, but rather that the maximum number of shoppers who visit regularly throughout the season has been reached. That market share has grown over the past 20 years, as the rural countryside has become a suburban oasis surrounding the family’s farmland. However, the neighborhood is built-out and the customer base is now holding steady. Donaldson is seeking alternative venues to keep the farm thriving and is becoming more innovative in reaching consumers, bringing them to the farm for far more than produce.
