Check out Honey Brook Organic Farm’s European-Style Winter Farmers’ Market, being held at the Distribution Center of our Pennington farm on Saturday, March 9th from 11am-3pm.   Shoppers of our first market days have absolutely raved about the quality of the products offered, and have said that the market is a fun new place to shop in the Hopewell Valley.  Keep in touch regarding the Winter Market happenings by joining our Mailing List (see sign ups in the right-hand column of this webpage). All of the participating farms and food establishments are family-owned and operated, so buy directly from the producers who are intimately familiar with the food destined to nurture you and your loved ones!  The following is a list of participants:  

Backyard Harvest is the creation of Laura Mayer, a Registered Nurse, herbalist, gardener and advocate for keeping the natural world alive. After working as a nurse for a year and a half, Laura yearned to be supporting people more holistically. She has attended and completed studies at Self-Heal School of Herbal Studies, where her own healing journey and deeper connection to the plant world began, and also completed The Hawthorn Institute's two-year clinical program in Traditional Western Herbalism and Bioregional Ayurveda. From there, with a group of folks from the school, she helped to start The Hawthorn Collective: a nonprofit free herb clinic, serving communities in Southern Oregon. She's inspired to empower others, and after her first herb school, her love for food as medicine took her to participate in several farming and herbal internships. Laura believes that is it our birthright as humans to remember our connection to our heart and to the Earth and to have access to local whole food, a supportive community and holistic health care!  She offers herbal products and tea, lotions, winter immune syrups, bitters, essence formulas, heart elixir as well as cups of yummy homemade tea. She grows most of the herbs she uses and gets the rest from friend's farms or local folks.

Dogwood Farms of Hillsborough, NJ will be offering their certified organic chicken eggs and whole chickens, as well as beef, lamb, salsas, their full line of pestos, tomato sauces, hot sauces, Bloody Mary mix, raviolis and fresh pastas. Greens, including Swiss chard and spinach will be for sale as well. In addition, they will be taking orders for their Winter Meat CSA program, with two monthly pick-ups at our Pennington farm from March through April. Remaining Pick-Up Dates are March 9th & April 6th!

Sandi of Garden State Salad in Flemington, NJ (and Farmer Sherry Dudas’s sister) will be selling freshly prepared hot and cold soups, kombucha and hot organic coffee.  Enjoy her hand-made soups at the market or take home to heat and eat!  Sandi takes pride in using only the freshest, locally grown (when available) ingredients to create healthy and nutritious soups. She also has sourdough bread and brownies!

Honey Brook Organic Farm is selling CSA shares for 2019 at the market, and members may pay by using credit card, check or cash. 

Morganics Family Farm in Hillsborough, NJ will be selling oats, oat groats, wheat berries & freshly ground-to-order wheat and oat floar! Here's what Farmer Scott says about his oatmeal (a new favorite breakfast cereal of Farmer Jim's of Honey Brook Organic Farm):

-organically grown

-raw, never steamed, flaked or parboiled

-minimally processed, nutrients alive!

-local and sustainable

-sweet, creamy and delicious from soil to spoon...

We seed our oats in the newly thawed moisture of the winter soils. Oats are vigorous and thrive in our New Jersey soils. By spring the oats flower and soon the seed is set. Come the end of July, the grains will be sun dried to perfection. Groats are the intact seed, our oatmeal is simply the groat flattened by the steel roller mill, never processed beyond that.

Joanna of Purely Farm's Naturally Pasture-Raised Meats in Ottsville, PA is not going to be at the market on March 9th, but on March 23rd she may be selling their fresh, pasture-raised pork, turkey and lamb.  Popular items include killer kielbasi, bone-in shoulder roasts (the ultimate comfort food) and ground lamb.  

Sugar Maple Jerseys Heidi Kovacs is the sole owner of this local dairy and a first generation dairy farmer. Sugar Maple Jerseys is a small registered Jersey herd located in Stockton, New Jersey. Heidi milks 35 to 40 Jerseys twice a day, every day and has small batches of cheese made by hand from her Jersey milk. She provides customers with high quality dairy products at an affordable price while having excellent animal care, by managing a pasture-based, primarily grass-fed herd. Her milk is always antibiotic and hormone free and the products she sells include raw milk cheddar, flavored cheddars, aged Gouda, hand-made butter, Greek-style yogurt, mozzarella, feta and cheddar cheese curds.
