Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm
Website | 41B Silver Lake Road, Blairstown, New Jersey 07825.
The Community Supported Garden at Genesis Farm in Blairstown, NJ is one of the first CSA (community supported agriculture farms) in the country. Pure, clean, delicious, nutritious food grown with biodynamic principles and lots of love – and without chemicals. Membership not only entitles one to a share in the produce, but also allows CSG farmers to focus on growing life-giving food for people they know rather than for an impersonal market. With the bottom line secured, growing decisions stem from what’s good for the land rather than from the dictates of economics.
The CSG community is not simply pre-buying vegetables; it is also helping to support itself through the running of a farm. The direct link between members and farmers puts the “culture” back in “agriculture.” As a result, the community begins to reconnect to the earth and to each other. They welcome all members, including children, to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the farm.

Longmeadow Farm started in 1993 and began by selling pumpkins for Halloween. But it wasn’t long before Bradley Burke, Longmeadow’s owner, felt that something more was in order. And with that decision, an apple orchard was planted. Today, Longmeadow Farm has 15 varieties of apples to pick, along with pumpkins, raspberries and blackberries. There are also hayrides for the kids, or those just young at heart.
