OUR 40TH YEAR!
THE annual fundraiser of the
Van Harlingen Historical Society
Tickets and more at: www.vanharlingen.org

Montgomery Township, New Jersey – John Waltz, President of the Van Harlingen Historical Society invites you to, “Come out and discover how our local farmers are bringing the ‘farm-to-table’ movement to Montgomery.”

Fascinating tidbits about Montgomery farms of yesterday and today will be shared on a bus tour, with stops at three Montgomery farms: Bridgepoint Run, Cherry Valley Cooperative (CVC), and Greenflash Farm, where a sumptuous ‘farm-to-table’ lunch will be served.

A short film: “Farming in the Millstone Valley: Past and Present,” which features Bridgepoint Run and CVC, will be shown during lunchtime.

Attendees will be greeted by and led in a farm tour by the farmers who own and work at each farm; all certified organic.

  • Morning Stop One: Bridgepoint Run Farm in Belle Mead. This land has been farmed since the 1740s! Farmer Dale Johnson’s great-grandfather bought the farm 90 years ago and the family raised dairy cows there for 50 years.
  • Morning Stop Two:  Cherry Valley Cooperative on Cherry Valley Road in Skillman, which is “dedicated to growing healthy food using resilient ecological stewardship.”  Hosts and farmers Alec Giosetti and Lauren Nagy will discuss the farm’s integrated connection to nature.
  • Morning Stop Three: The lunch stop on the tour will be Greenflash Farm in Blawenburg. It was originally part of the Gallup farm on Meadowview Road. Farmers Stephen Back and Wendy Golden came to the farm three years ago, and completed its transition to organic last year. The farm grows produce and flowers and raises free-range chickens and pigs. Farm shares are available.
  • A luncheon showcasing “a wealth of local farm produce” will be served in Greenflash’s historic and restored timbered barn. Those on a busy schedule who must skip the farm tour can just sign-up for farm-to-table lunch. Lunch menu may be found at www.vanharlingen.org
