Introducing Honey Brook Organic Farm-to-Door Home Delivery Service! 

We are now offering home delivery to central New Jersey. Here are some of the basics, & the ordering page is HERE & will be live and ready to accept orders once our inventory is finalized and uploaded. Our next delivery is Wednesday, April 1st communities located in southern Mercer County, the very edge of western Monmouth County and northern Burlington County & will be referred to as our "South" route. Deliveries will arrive between 9am-7pm. Please email with any questions you may have:

This is not a CSA share program as Honey Brook Organic Farm has very little produce right now (we have some garlic, cilantro carrots and chives). All produce offered will be certified organic and from NJ or PA growers. Our minimum order is $20. and the fee is $5/delivery. 

Payment will only be by online credit card payment.

Our Thursday delivery route (first delivery is April 2nd) serves Monmouth County and is referred to as our "Shore" route.  Deliveries arrive at your door between 9am-7pm. If you have purchased frozen goods, we will text you when your box (boxes) are at your door.

Our Saturday delivery route (next delivery is April 4th) serves Allentown Borough, Bordentown City, Bordentown Twp, Chesterfield Twp, Cranbury Twp, Cream Ridge, Crosswicks, East Windsor Twp, Ewing Twp, Hamilton Square, Hamilton Twp, Lawrence Twp, Lawrenceville, Mercerville, North Hanover Twp, Plainsboro, Princeton Junction, Robbinsville Twp, Trenton, Upper Freehold Twp, West Windsor Twp and Yardville and be referred to as our "North" route. Deliveries arrive at your door between 9am-7pm. If you have purchased frozen goods, we will text you when your box (boxes) are at your door.

When you order, the algorithm will "pick" a $30. value of items for your minimum; you will need to purchase "extras" if you would like more items than the $30. value, so it's really important for you to indicate your preferences. One customer on Wednesday's route didn't set her preferences, and received a box of fabulous olive oil and garlic, and was just a little befuddled by the experience (as were we, frankly).

For the week of March 29th, products delivered may include local, organic produce and herbs (some from our farm!), PA naturally-raised eggs, sauerkraut, "Fresh Tofu"-brand tofu from PA, unique soaps from The Shepherd's Pasture in Bordentown, NJ, frozen pork sausage, turkey drumsticks, Italian and Moroccan meatloaves and more from Purely Farm in Ottsville, PA, local honey from Igor's Bees, salsas, barbecue sauce, marinara pasta sauce, hot sauce, marinades and more from Dogwood Farms of Liberty Corner, NJ and Louis Organics' Almazara de Alcaraz brand of premium quality, certified organic extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), grown in Spain and is also Kosher certified. Garden State Salad will offer frozen containers of Vegan Organic Black Bean Chili, Vegan Chickpea Curry w/ Coconut Milk & Organic Brown Rice, Chicken Chickpea Curry w/ Coconut Milk & Organic Brown Rice, Julia Child's Beef Bourguignon and Chicken w/ Tomatillo Green Sauce & Organic Brown Rice.  

We are also in discussions with Cream Ridge Winery to offer wine selections and will have raw milk cheese from Birchwood Farm and Dairy and pure, NJ maple syrup from Sweet Sourland Farms in Hopewell, NJ to offer through this new program in April. Delivery days are Wednesday and Saturday for now, but may increase if demand requires! If there is interest, we will add another delivery route for the northern Jersey shore area as well as north Jersey.

Please know we have been growing and delivering certified organic produce for over thirty years.  New members of our farm team have recently gone through Rutgers' food safety training and at the farm, staff is currently and regularly thoroughly cleaning and sanitizing our packing facility and delivery trucks.  Deliverers are using gloves and masks due to Farmer Jim's overabundance of caution.

We are, of course, compliant with all FDA and CDC recommendations and requirements from a food safety and human health perspective. Our staff uses every precaution to ensure a safe, timely and delicious delivery of healthy food and other products on a weekly basis!
