Looking to taste what Jersey Fresh really is? Hunterdon County is your fun farm-filled destination! From charming farm stands to full-blown farm stores, experience all that the Other Side of Jersey has to offer!
Enter…the Farm Store!
Get ready to fill up your basket, Hunterdon’s many farm stores, located amid the very farm their produce is from, will leave you with enough freshness for a lifetime! A fan favorite is Phillips Farms, located in scenic Holland Township just above the quaint borough of Milford, hosts a large selection of delectable produce options in their large barn store (Insider tip: if you love to pick your own, they have that option too!).
- Want to complete your trip? Take the short drive down the road from Phillips Farms to Milford! The town boasts a variety of unique shops and eateries, including the infamous Descendants Brewery! Enjoy local brews in a historic Victorian atmosphere while taking in the small-town charm of Milford!
Ironbound Farm is another great stop – plus, you can enjoy delicious hard cider and a bite to eat while making your visit! Back in the day, New Jersey was famous for its cider, with George Washington calling it the “champagne of ciders.” Taste the history and enjoy the rolling farm field views before stopping at the farm store. Their store has their cider for sale, as well as produce from the farm and various types of meats as well. Want to take Ironbound home with you all season? Consider participating in their CSA program!
Did someone say, Alpaca shop? A farm field of Tibetan Yak? In New Jersey!?

- Just down some scenic back roads from WoodsEdge Farm is the village of Stockton. If you are looking for some of the best wood-fired pizza, using local ingredients too, you are going to want to stop by Market Pizza! Mushroom Truffle Pizza anyone? YUM!

If you plan right, you might even get the chance to enjoy some of the many festivals in Flemington, like the renowned Corn, Tomato, and Beer Festival (yes, all three together!)!
Heading towards Frenchtown is Lauber’s Farm and Country Market, a classic country farm stand full of the freshest of fresh produce, straight from the fields of Hunterdon! Plus, the view from the stand is spectacular!
