MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - Prince’s Farm was a 150 acre farm on South Springfield Avenue that operated in Springfield for four generations. In 1990, the farm was sold to developers for new home construction. For many years after that the Prince family operated a farm stand at the same location.

Now, Micky and Donna Prince of Springfield have another member of the family running a farm stand. Their daughter Heather Prince Murphy of Mountainside with her husband Tom bought a vacant lot at 1123 Mountain Avenue, Mountainside next to Vine Republic and across the street from Echo Lake Park.

This visually beautiful building was designed and decorated by Heather. Each piece of barn wood was hand painted by Heather in various colors. Posters of the original farm decorate the building. Heather’s goal is to bring quality freshly grown local produce to the area.
