Organic Farms In New Jersey

Organic farms:
a New Jersey agricultural success story

New Jersey Organic Farms

Organic farming is 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.

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


Organic Food and Sustainable Agriculture Systems

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.

Sustainable Agriculture Systems
Sustainable agriculture systems are processes and techniques that are used to produce healthy and environmentally safe food.
As a minimum, these agriculture systems are used to ensure that:

  • The fertility of the soil is continuously maintained and improved.
  • The quality of water is protected and enhanced
  • The farm workers, and all other factors in food production chain are protected
  • The discharge of waste and greenhouse gas emissions are treated to achieve minimal impact on the environment

While there is no widely recognized body for certification of Sustainable Food and Agriculture systems, the other components, Organic and Bio Dynamic Food and Agriculture systems have certification standards.
