We were proud to offer local gift boxes and baskets and a full line of John Deere Toys during the 2013 holiday season. Our farm market was full of perfect gifts for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list! Thoughtfully prepared, beautifully crafted boxes and baskets featuring our own and other fantastic local products. The selections of John Deere toys were a sure hit for that tractor lover of any age. Keep an eye out for these great gift ideas when we re open in April 2014 - they're not just for Christmas!
Keep an eye on this spot when we re-open in mid April 2014! This is where we list all of the fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables that are in season - from our own fields!
We are happy to offer a wide variety of quality meats and poultry from Washington's own Arctic Foods! We will be posting some of our customers' favorite items from Arctic in this spot once we re-open in mid April 2014.
S.A.V.E. Sunflower Seed Program and Sunflower Educational Tours!
We are proud to be working with the New Jersey Audobon's S.A.V.E. Program! Enjoy the bloom of sunflowers in and around our farm - acres and acres of Black-Oil Sunflowers! The black oil seeds have very thin shells, easy for virtually all seed-eating birds to crack open, and the kernels within have a high fat content, extremely valuable for birds, especially as food during migration and winter. They also attract more of a variety of bird species than use of other seeds. Educational and picturesque Sunflower Tours will be offfered soon.

My parents took me to Donaldson’s farm stand for locally grown fruits and vegetables throughout my childhood. Now, I bring my family to Donaldson’s Farm for our fruits and vegetables. My boys love to pick strawberries and pumpkins! Every summer my whole family looks forward to Donaldson’s corn and tomatoes. The farm is so much more than a fruit stand, it is a special place in the community."
Our Northern New Jersey farm seasonally features hundreds of acres of fruits and vegetables, pumpkin picking, strawberry picking, farm education, group tours, private tours, birthday parties and corporate events.
