Farm Visit: Stony Hill Farms

July 10, 2017

What would a farmers market be without its farmers?

The Riverview Farmers Market feels really fortunate to have five New Jersey farms represented at Market this season, selling Jersey-fresh produce, meats, flowers and much more. The Market Board is going to be visiting the farms and sharing our experiences, and we recently made our first visit, to Stony Hill Farms in Chester, New Jersey.

Stony Hill is a family-run farm, and we were shown around by Dale Davis III, head of the family. Dale runs Stony Hill, along with his wife Carol and their three children, Dale III, Kaitlyn, and Brandt. (You may have met Brandt at the Stony Hill tent at the Market!)

Here are a few pictures from our thorough and informative look around Stony Hill Farms and Gardens. We hope you’ll enjoy them.
