Unionville is pleased to partner with Fernbrook Farms (Chesterfield, NJ) and offer our patrons a weekly share of crops from the farm, delivered to the winery tasting room for your pickup! The CSA (community-supported agriculture) program entitles you to 20 weeks of fresh produce and herbs, grown thoughtfully and sustainably. Fernbrook is a special place and like Unionville, is wholly dedicated to farming in a healthy way. Learn more about their team and practices below.
Your boxed share is picked and delivered to Unionville Thursday morning, where it is available for pickup by you from 10am-6pm on Thursdays. Additionally, your CSA membership entitles you to the Farmhouse Garden, where you may pick all the herbs and cut flowers you'd like each week. Produce each week will vary based on what is ripe and in-season at the farm.
The cost for your 20 week farm share is $700 for the season. For the program details and to sign up, please click here
About Fernbrook Farms
We are committed to growing chemical-free food with a focus on sustainability. Although we are not certified organic, we never use harmful chemicals or synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. Farming can be inherently detrimental to natural environments by clearing swaths of trees for row crops and monocultures, but it doesn’t always have to be this way. A flourishing ecology boasts biodiversity, from species you can only see with a microscope to those you watch with binoculars. The complex interactions that result between them are invaluable for maintaining the natural world. As farmers, we respect and support the health of our land in order to grow fresh, healthy and nutritious produce. That’s why the farmers at Fernbrook focus on sustainable growing practices and farming with nature, instead of against it.
By rotating our crop fields each year and establishing pollinator habitats for beneficial insect populations, we can manage pests and avoid the use of chemical insecticides. Seeding cover crops, spreading compost, and fallowing fields all help to build soil structure and reduce erosion. We use organic potting soil, untreated seeds, and OMRI approved materials to support fellow agricultural businesses that share our principles. And our newly implemented ‘Project Pizza Box’ keeps your pizza boxes out of the landfills and gets them into our crop walkways where they can reduce weed pressure, decompose naturally and add carbon to our soils. All of these choices function together to create a vibrant, balanced and diverse ecosystem on the farm that sustains all forms of life, including us!
