You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; such as home canning and freezing directions. You can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!

This page provides a detailed list of New Jersey's pick- your- own (PYO, U-pick, pick-it-yourself) farms. I spent part of my childhood in NJ, and it was here that my folks first took me to a PYO, for blueberries, out in the Pine Barrens near Pemberton! The blueberries are the best in the world there, often the size of a nickel!
We also have a page with links to our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying many fruits and vegetables, such as how to make jam, apple butter, applesauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, pickles, ketchup or freezing corn.
I'm always looking for more to add and feedback about any farm you have visited, please write me using the Feedback form! And if you have a farm and want to add it or correct the information, please click on Add My Farm!
