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. This year Charlie is making handcrafted soaps from our beef tallow and herbs growing on the farm.
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). Ask us about our CSA Shares. 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 and Lucia both serve on the Mercer County Board of Agriculture. Lucia is on the Board of Directors of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFANJ.org). 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.

Kezialain Farm, in Orange County NY, has been in our family since 1775. We see ourselves as stewards of this land – 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.

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.

Profeta Farms is a Certified Organic Farm located on 370 beautiful acres on Route 202 South in Readington, New Jersey. It was founded by Paul Profeta, his wife Joanne Malino, and General Manager John Place. We are passionate about producing food of the highest quality using sustainable and humane practices.
We are very proud of the way we raise our cows, pigs, and chickens. They are raised in a manner that we and our customers believe they should be raised. The animals on this farm don’t just “have access” to our pastures – they live primarily on our pastures, as they were meant to, foraging and grazing for their food, which is grown with the help of our robust soil. By developing our farm into a diverse food system, we aim to provide a unique all-in-one experience for our customers where they will be able to purchase the majority of their food from a single local, organic, and sustainable source.
Our philosophy begins from the ground up, by boosting soil health. We reduce tillage, supplement with compost, and plant cover crops to continually work nutrients back into the soil. This fully mineralized and biologically active foundation lends its health to the plants that grow in it, a trend that follows the food chain all the way up to you, at the top. Rotational grazing systems, organic management, and the absence of herbicides and pesticides are key to creating a healthy soil to nourish our crops and pastures, which in turn nourish our animals and vegetables, and nourish us. Healthy soil yields healthy people.
Our farm stand is open 7 days a week, year-round, offering an ever-growing selection of produce, meat (beef, pork and chicken), eggs, and dairy products that are beyond organic. Our grassfed angus receive no grain; our dairy cows/steers receive 4 pounds of grain per day and are not marketed as grassfed.

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

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
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.
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
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.

Wrong Direction Farm raises pastured pigs and poultry and grassfed beef.
Our pigs are rotationally grazed on pasture and in wooded fencerows from April through December. In the winter we bring the pasture to them, in the form of hay harvested from our fields. We grow kale, pumpkins, oats, and root crops for the pigs, and we continue to play with the mixture to find optimal homegrown feed. We supplement their forage with organic grain, whey from a nearby cheese shop, and vegetables from regional farmers markets.
Pasture raised meat chickens and eggs are also available. Our chickens are fed certified organic feed.
Our grassfed cattle herd (predominately Devon and Angus) is rotationally grazed year round.
We sell our products directly to customers through our website. Meat can be ordered as individual cuts or in bulk shares such as half hogs or beef quarters. Along with on-farm pickup, we deliver to a number of locations in NY and NJ.
Thanks for your interest. Please call or email with any questions.
