For 11 years, Farm & Fork Society has been dedicated to building a community comprised of their farmer and members who pre-purchase shares of organic/sustainable crops on an seasonal basis. Started in 2008 by Melissa Goldberg of Livingston and Short Hills, NJ after she and a gathering of local citizens got together with a common goal: to provide their families with healthy organic/sustainably grown produce sourced from local farmers. Farm & Fork Society is dedicated to the health of its members and supporting best environmental practices and all farmers’ partners pursue farming practices that are environmentally sustainable. Produce is either certified organic, organic stewardship, eco-farmed or sustainably grown. Animals products are raised without antibiotics and hormones and the farmers can trace back all the materials they use in their farming. Members are encouraged to meet the farmers, visit the farms and see for themselves where their food comes from. The group continues to support the campaign Generation Zero: Working to Reduce Hunger in New Jersey.
