100% Certified Organic and GMO-Free Farm
School Lunch Farm & CSA is a 100% Certified Organic and GMO-Free Farm offering a weekly share of organic produce. We offer over 150 varieties of organic vegetables, fruit, flowers, and herbs with 10-15 types of produce available on any given week. All of our produce is grown from seed on our farm; we do not purchase produce from other farms or food distributors. Your share is harvested the day you pick it up—so your veggies are super fresh. Shareholders are welcome to volunteer at the farm, hike our woodlands, and visit our four-acre pond.
The School Lunch Farm Mission
School Lunch Farm is dedicated to creating a healthier community by growing nutrient-dense,100% Certified Organic and GMO-free vegetables and fruits, including heirloom and specialty produce for children and families through a CSA (community supported agriculture) shareholders program.
School Lunch Farm Goal
Employing the best practices of organic agriculture, School Lunch Farm builds healthier soil and a healthier community by growing nutrient dense, 100% Certified Organic and GMO-free
vegetables and fruits including heirloom and specialty crops. Our goal is to provide our shareholders with the freshest, healthiest food we can grow. Our members can feel a sense of pride and ownership in School Lunch Farm and we welcome them to participate at the farm as much as their schedule permits.
Educating children about healthy food
School Lunch Farm serves as an educational center for teachers and school garden programs we have helped foster for the past 8 years. Organic vegetable programs teach children to be stewards of the earth. An integrated curriculum fosters the core values of School Lunch Farm by nurturing children’s understanding of where food comes from, how it’s grown and the effect food production has on the environment. School Lunch Farm is also a popular destination for school field trips.
Feeding those in need
At School Lunch Farm we believe everyone has the right to good, wholesome food. In our first three years we have been able to donate thousands of pounds of fresh vegetables to the Mount Olive Food Pantry, Hackettstown Food Pantry, and Grace Episcopal Soup Kitchen. School Lunch Farm is happy to provide fresh vegetables to meet the needs of local families in need of supplemental food. We are currently in the early stages of a plan to offer reduced price CSA membership to families in need.
