Pick Your Own Guide to Farms in New Jersey

Apple Picking, Pumpkin Picking, Strawberry Picking Farms and Orchards

We'll try not to run into too many cliches, but hey, they don't call it the Garden State for nothing. New Jersey is loaded with farms, including those where families can pick their own fruit, vegetables, and even flowers. Many of these farms offer plenty of entertainment options for kids: hayrides and corn mazes in fall, wagon rides, and barnyard animals to feed year-round. Special seasonal events, farm stores, and wine tastings make a visit to a farm a win-win for parents and kids. So whether you're looking for apples, pumpkins, strawberries, peaches, or another fruit or vegetable, read on. We've rounded up our favorite farms and orchards for NJ families.
