Garden State of Mind

As summer winds down to a close, be sure to enjoy the best of the Garden State with these fresh and local farms!

Terhune Orchards is the best place for a family outing in the last days of summer, and into the autumn. Until October, you can pick your own fruits and vegetables at the farm, such as apples, peppers, summer squash and tomatoes. Don't miss their fresh apple cider and delicious donuts!


Just outside of Princeton is Cherry Grove Farms, home to pasture-raised meats and award-winning cheeses. Learn how to make their delicious mozzarella and ricotta cheeses at home by taking their cheese-making classes, held one weekend per month throughout the autumn and winter.

For some of the best vegetables of the season, check out Kerr's Kornstand in Pennington. Famous for their delicious corn at $6.50 a dozen, Kerr's offers fresh crops year round; be sure to grab their tomatoes before summer ends!

Griggstown Farm, located at 484 Bunker Hill Road, is the go-to place for poultry and game; their USDA- certified kitchen churns out delicious savory pies and chicken sausages every day. Don't miss their famous homemade chicken pot pies!

Conveniently located downtown in Hinds Plaza, the Princeton Farmers' Market is held every Thursday until November 19th. With over twenty local vendors, the Princeton Farmers' Market is the best place to buy all your culinary necessities, from fruits and vegetables to baked goods and salads.
