Each year the Cedar Grove Historical Society holds a Pumpkin and Apple Sale in honor of Edith Morgan and her son Courtenay Morgan. In the fall of each year the Morgans sold pumpkins and apples in the front of the Morgan farmhouse. Mrs. Morgan passed away in 1961, but Courtenay, the last farmer in Cedar Grove, continued the tradition until his death in 1985 at the age of 86. The Historical Society continues that tradition each October.
Courtenay left his property to the Township of Cedar Grove with the stipulations that the township create a park for passive recreation and that the Historical Society create a museum to preserve the history of Cedar Grove. Today the Historical Society’s home is the Morgan Museum located in the Morgan farmhouse.
This year the sale will be held on Saturday and Sunday, October 3 and 4 and Saturday and Sunday, October 10 and 11. The sale will be held from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays and from 10 a.m. until 5p.m on Sundays. We will have pumpkins, apples. mums, hay bales, corn stalks and gourds for sale. Take pictures with our character cutouts and enter the “Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin” contest. If you guess the weight closest to the actual weight of the pumpkin, you win the pumpkin. An ice cream truck will be at the farm for 12-5 each day. The Farm Stand will be open each day from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Our pumpkins will be widely spaced so that you can pick out your favorite one safely. We ask that all shoppers wear masks in order to keep us all safe.
We hope to see you at Morgan’s Farm, 903 Pompton Avenue, Cedar Grove, NJ!
