When you shop at Stony Hill Farm Market tent, you’ll only find Jersey Fresh fruits and vegetables. We’ve changed our production schedule and are planting more vegetables earlier. So you’ll find more vegetables grown by us for you. If we don’t grow it ourselves, a local Jersey farmer does. We don’t stock bananas or other exotic fruit, but we don’t think you’ll mind supporting local New Jersey farmers and buying just-picked fruits and vegetables that only traveled a few yards (or a few miles) rather than a few thousand miles.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a relationship of a mutual commitment between farmers and members. In return for an annual fee which helps cover production costs of the farm, CSA members receive a weekly share of the highest quality produce during the growing season.
•Weekly shares of the highest quality produce in season
•A discount card that entitles them to 10% off each time they shop at any Stony Hill Farms retail location (including the Gardens, tailgate markets, PYO, and Maze Fun Park)! Cards are good for the entire CSA year once membership is paid in full

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
Stony Hill uses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) on all our fruits and vegetables. IPM uses site assessment, monitoring, and pest prevention in combination with a variety of pest management tactics to keep pests within acceptable limits. Instead of routine chemical applications, Integrated Pest Management employs physical, horticultural, mechanical, and biological controls with selective use of pesticides when needed.
Stony Hill Gardens opened in 1988 with a focus that began in cut flower orchids. Since then, we have expanded to become a family destination. In 2001, we opened our Farm Market. Not only do we sell orchids and other plants at our Gardens location, but our Market and Maze Fun Park boasts a 10-acre corn maze, other fun attractions, our own Jersey-fresh fruits and vegetables, baked goods, hayrides, accomadations for birthday parties, a wide variety of seasonal plants, Christmas trees, and much more.
In the spring and summer, you'll find flowering bulbs, pansies, geraniums, a wide selection of other annuals and perennials, and family fun at our Maze Park. During the fall, you can get lost in our 10-acre corn maze, enjoy a hayride and pick-your-own pumpkins, plus our stunning mums. For Christmas you will find our pre-cut Christmas trees, wreaths and roping. And don't forget your Boxwood Tree!
A Friendly Family Business
We are the Davis family, your local farm family: Carol and Dale Davis III and our three children, Dale IV, Kaitlyn and Brandt. Stony Hill Gardens and Stony Hill Farm Market, are truly family affairs. Providing friendly, excellent service to you is also our priority. Dale is the orchid expert, and he oversees most of the general farm operations. He also attends most of the Tailgate Markets in the summer. Carol is our primary baker, and she also oversees Stony Hill Farm Market and our educational field trips. Our children and their families are also involved at Stony Hill. To find out more about them and their roles, please visit our Staff page.
Our story all began when Carol's parents bought the 40 acres where Stony Hill Gardens is currently located. As a child, Carol had a great love for and interest in farm life. Her family rented out their land to other farmers who grew hay on it. Carol’s family was then able to harvest and keep this hay. In exchange, her family would help the farmers when needed. When one of the farmers went on vacation, Carol was asked to milk the cows for three weeks. Three weeks turned into three years because the farmer was so impressed with how well the cows responded to her. Milk production went up dramatically! When it was time for her to attend college, she continued her milking job and worked for an orchid wholesaler.
