SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ — Orchardside Farm is a brand-new farm located on the border of Cranbury, South Brunswick and Plainsboro Townships. Family owned and operated, Orchardside Farm is easily accessible from Dey Road, off of Orchardside Drive. Though they are a small farm, sitting on eight beautiful acres of preserved farmland, the farm backs up to neighboring farms, which creates spectacular, unobstructed sunrise and sunset views.
Currently, they are growing and selling pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, winter squash, such as butternut, delicata and kabocha varieties, and decorative gourds. The pumpkins are perfect for decorations.
The property is very picturesque, with beautiful views in all directions. In addition to pumpkins and squash, Christmas trees are also grown on the property. Currently there are about 1,500 Christmas trees on the farm in various stages of growth. The trees make a great background for photos, as well.
Also for sale this fall, are delectable pumpkin themed desserts, such as ice cream, cream cheese and baked goods, like chocolate chip cookies and muffins. They offer a vegan friendly ice cream option as well. All of the ice creams and baked goods use pumpkins grown on the farm. Truly farm-fresh!
