Apple Ridge Farm is a small diversified sustainable family farm. We specialize in Certified Naturally Grown pasture raised chicken and eggs. Our egg layers are given unlimited access to green pasture 24/7 during the growing season and have access to supplemental feed which is grown naturally (no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers) and contains no GMO's. Our meat chickens are raised in portable pens that are moved
to fresh grass one to two times daily.

In addition to poultry products we also raise Certified Naturally Grown produce (specializing in heirloom varieties) and cut flowers. Apple Ridge is also home to the Stone Oven Bakery, a wood-fired brick oven bakery that specializes in naturally leavened artisan breads.

We are located in Saylorsburg, PA (Monroe County), just 10 miles from the NJ line (Route 80). We're 90 miles West of New York City and 90 miles North of Philadelphia.

Aspen Ridge Farm is a small diversified family farm specializing in naturally grown, pasture raised meat including chicken, pork, lamb, rose veal and eggs. We provide unlimited pasture to all of our animals through daily rotational grazing. Our pastures are managed organically with no herbicide or pesticide applications, and fertilizers are in the form of manure and compost produced on farm. We use no growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics.

Our broilers and layers forage on our pastures while free ranging outside, always exposed to fresh pasture, natural sunlight and fresh air. 2014 Broilers will be available starting at the end of May through the November. Eggs are always available, though supply is limited in the winter months. In addition to their foraging, we supplement the diets of our poultry with an organically grown, soy and GMO-free grain ration that is both grown and milled locally.

Our pigs are provided with both forest and pasture to browse and root in. Frequent pasture rotation minimizes their impact on the environment and maximizes their quality of life and flavor of the meat. In addition to their foraging, we supplement the diets of our pigs with an organically grown, soy and GMO-free grain ration that is both grown and milled locally as well as raw milk produced on farm. We offer a limited number of whole and half pigs available for sale each year. Individually packaged cuts of pork are generally available in the summer and fall months.

Our lambs graze and browse on fresh grass, and have access to high quality minerals and salt. Their diet is 100% pasture or dried forage (hay) and we do not supplement with grain. We rotate them frequently to fresh pasture ensuring lambs always have the best nutrition available. Individually packaged cuts of lamb are generally available in the fall months. In addition to cuts of lamb, we frequently have wool pelts and home spun yarns produced from our wool.

Veal calves are fed fresh, raw milk produced on our farm twice daily. In addition to milk, calves have access to as much fresh grass or hay (winter months) as they choose. Calves live on pasture and are rotated daily through our rotational grazing system. Rose veal is full of flavor, yet still retains its veal tenderness.

Our 2014 meat and egg CSA begins in May and ends in November. CSA members have the option to pick-up shares on farm or monthly in Madison, NJ. Base shares include eggs and whole chicken broilers, with the option of pork and veal add-ons. For full share details, please visit our website.

All of our farm products are available by pre-arranged drop off or pick up at the farm. Please contact us by phone our email to place an order.

Beechtree Farm, Hopewell, NJ. Inspired after hearing Jo Robinson speak on why grassfed is best in 2003, we began to expand our cattle operation of 20 years and selling our grassfed beef directly to consumers from our 58 acre, preserved farm. We have two other farms nearby and partner with local farmers whose pasture we graze in-season. We also sell chicken, pork and eggs seasonally.

Our meat is sold frozen, by the cut, in our store here at Beechtree Farm. Please call ahead to let us know when you'd like to visit. While we live and work from the farm, we want to make sure to be here when you arrive. From Spring to Fall we also participate in several farmers markets (see our website for locations and times). We take names for those who are interested in ordering 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 share of beef.

Our cattle live an unconfined, humane life on pasture and hay in the winter with access to shelter, minerals and salt. We practice rotational pasture grazing to maintain the growth of lush pastures. Working with the Natural Resource Conservation Service, NRCS, we follow Comprehensive Nutrient Management to protect local water and enrich our soils. The meat is processed at small USDA certified facilities. We have observed the entire process and are confident that our animals receive humane treatment up to the very end.

We often hear from our customers how flavorful our meat is. It was quite a thrill when one 80-year-old customer exclaimed that she had the best hamburger in her entire life from our ground beef. Another woman actually burst into tears when talking about the brisket she prepared at Passover. We also feel wonderful knowing our customers are eating such nutrient dense and healthy food.

We are actively involved in promoting local, regenerative agriculture. Charlie is on the Mercer County Board of Agriculture. Lucia is Vice President, Board of Directors, Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFANJ.org) and heads up the Policy Committee. She chairs the Hopewell Township Agricultural Advisory Committee which actively preserves farmland in our town.

Burningheart Farm is a small farm with a mission: to preserve the art of sustainable farming. We use organic methods to produce happy and healthy pasture raised lamb, heritage turkey, chicken and eggs without the use of antibiotics, growth hormones, anthelmintics (de-wormers), pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. Our lambs and poultry are on pasture everyday.

The small size of our farm allows us to produce limited quantity with exceptional quality. An important part of our "small and local" philosophy is retailing directly to you, our customer.

The soil is the foundation of our farm. Our permanent pastures are managed for the long term protection of the soil, increasing mineralization, and decreasing erosion. Permanent organic pasture contains a wide variety of plants and greater biological diversity than soil which is subject to tillage and toxic inputs. Much of our pasture contains legumes, such as white clover, which fix nitrogen from the atmosphere into the soil at the root level, providing free and natural fertilization with no excess nitrogen run-off to contaminate surface water. The result is a higher level of nutrition in the pasture, the animals, and you.

We keep a permanent flock of sheep and breed our lambs here on our farm. Our livestock are treated humanely and have plenty of space, eliminating stress and illness. We supplement our livestock with kelp (OMRI listed), a sea grass which has the proper balance of vitamins and minerals necessary for excellent nutrition. Kelp contains over 60 minerals and helps to maintain soil fertility. We participate in the USDA voluntary scrapie flock certification program. These sustainable methods promote optimal public health, maintain strong topsoil and produce some of the most nutritious, safe, and delicious meat and eggs available.

You can order on our website, email or call. Please order your lamb early in the year, as we often sell out by summer; you can buy a whole or half share and it is ready for your pickup in the summer and autumn. Heritage turkey orders for Thanksgiving are taken throughout the year, but should be made by March 31 to ensure we will raise one just for you. Chicken is available throughout the year; advance orders are requested for large quantities. Eggs are available in the spring, summer and fall. Honey, organic herbs, firewood, and more are available on our farm stand seasonally.

Visit our website for more details, discounts and current info. To Your Health! You can visit our farm at:

The Jennings Farm is located in Medford NJ which is 20 minutes from Cherry Hill, NJ and 45 minutes from Philadelphia, PA. The farm has been in our family for four generations and was preserved from development by the SADC of New Jersey.

The Jennings Farm herd consists primarily of Herefords and a Hereford-Angus cross fondly called “Baldies,” because of their white faces. Our animals are free to roam year round and are never penned up, however shelter is available to them during inclement weather. Our animals live stress-free happy lives and enjoy the tranquility on our rural 100-acre farm. During warmer times of the year and weather dependent (rainfall, drought, temperature) we use rotational grazing to allow rest periods for the pastures to promote healthy re-growth of their grasses. The pastures in return give back healthy nutritious forage for our animals. To round out their diets, our herd has access to trace element salt and kelp. During the winter we add hay to their dormant season grazing but they are never fed corn or grain nor are they given antibiotics or hormones. This past fall several of our pastures were over seeded to increase forage diversity and density. Late winter/early spring clovers were frost seeded to raise the nutrient value of the pastures as well as their overall nitrogen fixation ability.

We do not have organic certification but do our best to abide by the standards embraced by organic farming. Future plans include applying for humane animal certification.

Our USDA beef is processed by Springfield Meats in Richlandtown, PA and Smuckers in Mt. Joy, PA.

Our beef products may be purchased:
1) From the farm directly, by appointment only, 40 Jennings Rd, Medford, NJ 08055. Call to schedule an appointment. 1-609-7090-6044

2) At the Philadelphia Food Trust every other Saturday at The Fitler Square Farmer’s Market, 23rd and Pine Street, Philadelphia, PA. This market is open year round.

Available for purchase: Ground Beef, Tenderloin, Sirloin, Rib Eye, Strip, London Broil, and Sandwich (Chip Steaks), as well as roasts, soup/marrow bones, suet, and liver. Check our website for current availability or call to order any special cuts.

Kezialain Farm, in Orange County NY, has been in our family since 1775. We see ourselves as stewards of this land –NOFA seal which is why we raise cattle that are 100% grass-fed, certified organic (by NOFA-NY).

Our cattle are raised on their mothers’ milk, our organic pasture and hay, and organic minerals like kelp—nothing else. They thrive on the native grasses and plants that grow naturally in the fields, keeping the soil fertile and the farm sustainable. This diet and their low-stress lives make them naturally healthy and enhances the quality of their lives. It’s also better for the environment and produces the healthiest kind of beef available.

We use a small organic humane USDA slaughterhouse. The meat is dry aged for 10–14 days to enhance flavor and tenderness, then cut, vacuum packed and frozen. We sell meat directly from the farm as sides (which are cut to your specifications); mixed quarters and eighths (we try to include the cuts that you prefer); 20-pound variety packs of steaks, ground beef and other cuts; and 10 or 20 pound packs of ground beef. We sometimes have ground beef and small amounts of meat available but usually orders have to be placed in advance – just contact us and we’ll let you know about availability.

More information and a video of the farm are on our website. If you have any questions about buying in bulk, we are glad to answer them. We understand that many people haven’t done it before and don’t know what to expect.

Lowland Farm raises grass-fed, grass-finished beef and pastured pork on verdant farmland in the Hudson Valley, 50 miles NW of New York City, adjacent to Vernon, New Jersey.

Our cows are mixed breeds, including Angus, Hereford, and Devon. They spend their entire lives out of doors, eating grass exclusively, without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. We began raising beef seven years ago and are beginning to see the results of our high density rotational grazing in improved soil, organic matter and fertility – and in excellent beef. We added pasture-raised hogs in 2012, rearing heritage breeds on sectioned woodland habitat. Hogs live on the fruits of their foraging and on feed free of antibiotics and hormones.

We sell varied cuts of grass-fed beef and pastured pork, processed at USDA-approved facilities and sold frozen in vacuum-packed packages: steaks, roasts, short-ribs, sandwich steak, ground beef, ham, sausages, spare ribs and other cuts. Customers may buy portions of cows or pigs as well. Orders of 20 pounds or more receive a 20% discount. We sell our meat locally and will deliver larger orders; people may pick up from the farm. Selected cuts are available for delivery through Schuller’s Dairy Deliveries, Warwick, NY. (www.schullersdairy.com)

More information about our grazing practices and farm is available on our website.

Neptune Farm is located in southwest New Jersey, on the Delaware Bay. We have been certified organic by NOFA-NJ since 1992, and our farm also conforms to European organic livestock standards. Our Dorset sheep and Hereford cattle are on mixed grass and legume pasture all year round, and dine on our hay in winter. Our animals are never confined, and always have access to shelter. They are tested annually for scrapie and Johne’s. We provide free-choice mineral supplements of kelp and Redmond salt. The farm is in a number of conservation programs, and stewardship is important to us.

All of our lambs are grass-finished, and never receive grain. Some of our cattle are finished on grass, while others are fed modest amounts of organic grain to maintain condition during the three months of winter.

Our meat is processed in a local USDA-inspected facility that is certified for organic processing and humane treatment of animals. We sell lambs by the half, beef in sixth shares (about 90 pounds), and deliver to you in freezer-wrapped packages. Our retail meat season begins in late fall and runs through early winter. Restaurant availability is year-round.

Plaid Piper Farm has been in our family for 7 generations. It is located in picturesque Sussex County. We currently offer grass fed, grass finished beef, pastured pork, chickens, turkeys and eggs. All of our products are raised naturally without the use of added antibiotics, hormones or pesticides.

Our beef is wintered over on our hay. Spring through fall they are rotationally grazed on our pastures. Our pigs are fed a balanced grain ration and rotationally graze their pastures. The broiler chickens are kept in large moveable pens. The pens provide shade and safety from predators. The pens are moved to fresh pasture daily. They are given natural feed to supplement what they pick up in the pasture. We raise one flock of Broad breasted Bronze turkeys each year for Thanksgiving. They are also rotationally grazed. Our layer flock has their own travel trailer. This provides their protection from predators, a place to roost and nests to lay their eggs. They freely wander their pasture and hop into their trailer whenever they feel the need. We move the layers and their trailer to fresh pasture frequently.

We invite you to visit our farm. We enjoy showing you our content animals and discussing how we keep them safe and healthy in a humane fashion. We use good husbandry practices to let them live as nature intended with as little intervention as possible. If you would like to visit, please call or email so we can ‘hang near the barn’ and wait for you. You may even be put to work collecting eggs!

We sell our products direct from our farm. Order your product on our website, by email, or call. We suggest that you pre-order our products as quantities are limited and sell out quickly.

Know your farmer, know your food.

Pure Indian Foods is a small family-owned business that takes pride in making an exceptional quality grass-fed and certified organic Ghee. Golden colored Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice for deep fat frying, baking and sautéing. Because of the low moisture content, it can be stored without refrigeration for 2-3 months. Many people find our ghee, with its rich, nutty flavor, to be tastier than butter.

We make our ghee fresh, with care, in small batches, right here in the USA. Our products are USDA Certified Organic. We use butter made only in Springtime through the Fall, when the cows are actually out on the pasture eating fresh green grass. We make our ghee only on the waxing or full moon days which are auspicious in the ancient Vedic system. We use glass bottles instead of plastic bottles to avoid dangerous toxic chemicals from leeching from plastic containers. Our family has been in the ghee business in India for 5 generations, since 1889, and we are proudly continuing that tradition.

Ghee has been used for its health-giving and healing properties for thousands of years. In Ayurveda (the “science of life”), cow ghee is considered one of the most sacred foods.

Ghee is the best cooking oil as it is stable at higher temperatures, and it enhances the flavor of spices and herbs. Ghee is free of casein and lactose and is suitable for people who are allergic to dairy products. It keeps skin soft, and has anti-aging properties. Ghee contains naturally occurring CLA, Omega-3, Vitamins A, D, E & K2. It is free of harmful trans-fats.

Ghee is shelf-stable and we ship worldwide by USPS, UPS, FedEx or DHL. We offer special discounts to co-ops and buying clubs.

Rock Ridge Farms - We are a farming family that loves to raise animals in their most natural environment, which is the way animals love to be raised!

Our laying hens produce the most nutritious, delicious and healthy eggs, since they have over 40 acres of pasture to freely roam every day, all day. We frequently move their mobile henhouse so they don’t have to wander too far to find all the plants and bugs they need to lay eggs that are nutritious, with dark yellow to orange yolks and an unsurpassed flavor. Our feed is an all natural vegetarian feed freshly ground every two weeks and in the snowy winter, when green grass is scarce, we feed our layers our best quality hay.

Recently, a customer dropped this note in the money box of our (honor system) egg stand: “I eat one egg with my breakfast every morning. Until I discovered your extra large eggs this summer, I didn’t know how very delicious eggs could be! And I have never seen orange yolks before. Thanks for the great taste, and I wish you well!”

Our meat chickens are raised in mobile pens during the summer months, which we move twice a day to ensure cleanliness and fresh grass. Since these chickens have a fresh salad of plants and grasses every day and an all-natural vegetarian diet of grains, their meat is of superior quality in flavor and nutrition. We have these chickens vacuum wrapped so we can store them through the winter months so our customers can come by anytime to pick up a chicken for dinner.

We do not ship any of our produce, but you are welcome to come by our farm anytime to see for yourself how we raise our animals.

Simply Grazin' LLC is New Jersey's original family-owned and operated, certified organic, grass-fed livestock farm where our name says it all! Our ruminants simply graze peacefully and grow naturally with minimal interference from us, just like God intended.

All beef cattle eat organic pasture, never any grain. Free-range veal, pork and poultry enjoy organically managed pasture and certified organic feed. Chickens are raised in portable outside pens that are moved each day to provide fresh forage rich in Omega 3 and CL As. You taste the difference!

Processing is done at a local family-owned, USDA inspected, certified organic facility. Animals are treated humanely, with as little stress as possible, and the processor honors that tradition once they are placed in his care.

Products are sold wholesale, retail (to members only), and to restaurants. We strive to keep our products modestly priced, promoting family affordability as well as nutritional value. Beef is sold in individual cuts or by sides/whole beef. Pork is sold by the cut or by ½ or whole hog, and chicken is sold whole. All retail cuts are vacuum packed (sides/whole animals can be paper-wrapped at your request).

Please contact the farm via e-mail for information on becoming a member. (Web-site should be updated soon!)

Totten Family Farm is a preserved 80-acre Certified Naturally Grown farm in Long Valley, NJ.

logo

As stewards of the land it is our objective to efficiently raise high quality,healthy food in a sustainable manner. We are driven by a deep rooted need to utilize the skills and preserve the traditions that have sustained humankind for so long. We consider food raised in a pure, ecological, and humane manner to be a basic right essential to good health. It is our duty and honor as farmers and land stewards to fulfill this right with integrity and imprint its value on current and future generations.

Under new management this year, the farm will expand its offerings to include mixed vegetables, in addition to pasture raised chickens, ducks, turkeys, and eggs. Other anticipated products this year include grass fed lamb and pasture raised pork. By selecting heritage breeds we hope to preserve priceless genetic diversity.

To ensure happy, healthy animals we employ management techniques such as good nutrition, low stocking densities, frequent movement to fresh pasture, interspecies grazing, and alternating fields between grazing, haying, and vegetable production. We never use hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. The animals that do require grain are fed organic grain. Through our management techniques we encourage all of our animals to forage from our lush pastures of mixed grasses and legumes. Scraps from our sustainably managed gardens may also be fed. We feed dry hay from our own fields during the winter months.

Our products are available at our farm stand, at farmers markets, and at select area stores and restaurants. We prefer to take preorders for our meats. In addition we offer mixed vegetables, vegetable starts, cut flowers, nursery trees, farm baked pies, honey, Christmas trees, medicinal herbs, and educational programs.

Vernon Valley Farm raises grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and naturally grown vegetables. We strive to provide fresh, healthy, and flavorful food for our community.

Our operation is strictly chemical and drug free. From the health and well-being of our cows, all the way down to the worms in the soil, we seek to use nature's synergies to farm rather than industrial methods.

All of our cows are born on the farm and raised on our pastures. We have spent years fine tuning the mix of grass species so that there is a diversity of forage available, irrespective of the weather. From spring through early winter, we move the herd daily to a fresh area. This system is known as intensive rotational grazing and is designed to mimic the natural grazing patterns of herd animals in the wild. This allows the grass enough time to rest and regrow and helps build healthy soil. This also helps to break insect and parasite cycles.
In the winter, we feed grass hay to our cows and all year long we offer free access to OMRI approved sea salt, vitamins, and minerals, which in turn re-mineralize the soil.

During periods of inclement weather, we feed our cattle in an open air structure. We utilize a bedded manure pack system. This historic method puts a greater emphasis on animal comfort rather than production efficiency. The resulting compost is spread back on the fields after the winter.

Currently we have grass-fed beef in stock and are accepting orders. We sell by the whole, half, and quarter, as well as individual cuts. Next season we will have pork, with the potential for poultry.

We welcome visitors and seek to mentor others about farming.
