Each season grants guests a new excuse to visit Ort Farms, which has been the pride and joy of the Ort family since 1916. Each fall, the family designs a giant 8-acre corn maze, which serves as the centerpiece for the annual Fall Festival, which welcomes guests to visit farm animals, climb a giant hay pyramid, and board a hayride to the pumpkin patch. On weekend, visitors can enjoy rides on ponies, trains, and monster trucks. Winter brings holiday decorations, such as douglas firs and wreaths, and spring blossoms to life as pots of geraniums, annuals, and marigolds spring up inside the farm's five greenhouses.
And as the sun dons its giant summer bathing suit, the Orts arrive at local farmers? markets bearing fresh lettuce, colorful peppers, and other seasonal produce.
Locals can also participate in Ort Farms' CSA share club, which connects consumers and farmers without forcing them to share a studio apartment. Each week during the harvest season, the farmers pick a certain amount of locally grown produce for each individual or family participating in the CSA program.
Stony Hill Farms traces its origins a generation back, to when owner Carol Davis's parents bought an idyllic 40-acre plot of New Jersey farmland. Where Carol spent her childhood milking cows, customers now wander through 18,000 square feet of greenhouses and stroll past garden benches laden with ornamental plants and flowers. Carol, her husband Dale, and their children carry on the family tradition of horticulture, helping clients select a rare, treasured orchid to decorate their home, or obtain a Community-Supported Agriculture membership to fill their pantries with local, seasonal produce. Families can also bond with a wealth of fun activities, such as winding through five different mazes in the fun park.
A&A Fine Foods, which first opened its doors in 1992, helps customers line their pantry shelves or banquet tables with gourmet comestibles the likes of meat, bread, cookies, olive oil, cheese, and pasta. Behind gleaming display cases of hormone-free chicken and Boar's Head meats, A&A's butchers prepare homemade italian sausage and slice marbled cuts of grass-fed beef with the steady hands of a brain surgeon playing Jenga. The deli's staff can accommodate lunchtime cravings or catering requests by ladling bowls of house-made soups out of its percolating cauldrons and crafting hearty sandwiches or wraps with such ingredients as grilled eggplant and imported provolone.
Back in 1961, when it was known as Colonial Health, Nature's Pavilion was way ahead of its time. The store helped blaze the trail for yesterday's health nuts, who would sure enough turn into the trendsetters of today.?All of this is even more impressive considering the store has always stuck to the same mission, curating an inventory of groceries, supplements, and accessories designed to keep bodies healthy and happy. But Nature's Pavilion is more than just a retailer. The store is also a place where customers can seek out information during frequent seminars on subjects such as gluten-free eating and cooking without candy.

The Meat House specializes in gourmet proteins, from all-natural filet mignon and marinated chicken breasts to cuts of lamb, veal, and pork. For more than a decade, the butcher shop has been serving each cut of meat alongside a satisfaction guarantee, along with hearty bread, cheese, and more than 100 varieties of wine.
Founders and childhood friends Justin Rosberg and Jason Parent own shops in locations from Maine to California. Each branch of The Meat House, though, is nestled into its respective community and filled with local ingredients. As Rosberg told FOX Business, "We try to source as many products as we can from within a 100- to 200-mile radius."
The display cases brim with marbled cuts of Prime and dry-aged beef as well as chicken breasts in lemon-pepper or sun-dried tomato marinades. When available, the butchers also slice cuts of venison, alligator, or boar. The Meat House's prepackaged rubs and marinades fill the air with the aromas of garlic, peppercorns, hickory, and molasses.
