Rolling Hills Farm

For the next few years, there’ll be something new as well as something old for farmers Stephanie Spock and John Squicciarino, as they work to remediate the East Amwell acres that will be the farm of their future while growing in Lambertville the organic crops their customers enjoy year-round.

Spring Run Dairy and Creamery

Creamline, non-homogenized milks come straight from a small family farm that’s purposefully preserved in Alexandria Township. Sarah and Dan Lyness, the farmers in charge, are part of a new, emerging generation of young farmers in the Garden State.

From Fruits to Nuts

In lectures freewheeling and filled with common sense, organic growers both professional and back yard received expert guidance on cultivating a wide range of crops at NOFA-NJ’s annual winter conference. In one afternoon during the two-day program, five speakers keyed in on the fruits of their own labors.

Ben’s Commandments

An architect by trade who sees both food and shelter as “the staffs of life,” Ben Walmer and his fellow foragers and chefs love to gather and collaborate at Whittemore, a unique preserve in Tewksbury Township where community, culture and conservation converge. The Peasant Wife’s Chief Photographer Mike Peters spent last Sunday with the swashbucklers whose culinary celebrations are in tune with nature’s doctrine.

Flying High

Hawk Haven Vineyard & Winery is all about “doing it right” and “putting it out there right.” Todd and Kenna Wuerker, the husband-wife team behind the wine-grape farm in Cape May County, will settle for nothing less than top-tier estate wines – and never accept the status quo.

Swine + Brine
