About our Farm
Cherry Valley Farm is a 97 acre property on the edge of Princeton, NJ. Of the roughly 45 acres of field space we actively produce on approximately 3 acres. We grow vegetables, herbs, mushrooms, and berries for CSA members and on-site retail customers. In addition to our 3 acres of active production we manage approximately 45 acres of woods, 10 acres of wet lands, and roughly 15 acres of pasture for our sheep and laying hens.
We are currently in a state of transition, hoping to make improvements to the infrastructure on the property in order to facilitate year round production, an on site Farm store, community events, educational workshops and classes.
If interested please email me your resume, a brief statement of interest and two references.
Look forward to hearing from you!
