Organic New Jersey Farms

New Jersey Organic Farms

Learn why New Jersey Organic farms are a NJ agricultural success story.
Discover the NJ farms verified as organic by the
USDA Organic Integrity Database.

Operating a farm in New Jersey has a unique set of challenges that farmers must contend with. With densely populated urban and sprawling suburban areas driving up the cost of land, very little land is available for widespread, high volume farming.

Under these conditions, large commercial farms are not viable. Small local farms, especially organic farms, have developed a niche with consumers who are willing to pay a higher price for local organic, fresh, farm-to-table, fully ripened, healthy food.

This have proven to be a success story for small NJ farms and is further evidence that New Jersey is known as the "Garden State"


Organic Food Farming Processes

Organic farms require a process of caring for the environment through farming techniques that ensure the health and well-being of the soil, the plants and the animals that are being raised and cared for.

The certification of organic food requires farming processes that exclude the use of contamination by human or industrial waste, harmful pesticides, artificial fertilizers, ionizing radiation, and food additives. Livestock must be free of antibiotics and growth hormones.

It includes a rigorous system of sustainable agriculture that takes time and commitment with a significant benefit accruing to future generations.
