Organic farms in South Jersey

usdaI don’t insist that everything is organic. First of all, we can’t afford it. Secondly, there are many places that grow their food or raise their animals with completely natural and sustainable practices, but can’t afford to jump through the hoops that the USDA requires to get organic certification.

Still, I do choose organic frequently. I always make sure I buy something from the one organic vendor, DanLynn Farms, that sets up shop at the Collingswood Farmers Market each week. I know that their organic certification comes at a price, and I want to contribute just a little bit to ensure they keep up the good work.

I found a list on New Jersey Leisure Guide that has all the organic farms in South Jersey.

Comments

  1. I just joined the Muth Family Farm CSA this year and went yesterday for my first produce pick-up! I’m so excited to be eating locally and organically this summer. The great thing about the CSA is that I got things I never would have bought myself (squash blossoms….stuffed with cheese and fried..yum!) …and even some things I never heard of (Tat soy), so now I have to get more creative with cooking and even look up some things. Would be happy to share my CSA experience/recipes with you and your readers.
