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.
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' 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.
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.

The board-certified ophthalmologists at Corneal Associates of New Jersey perform CustomVue Wavefront LASIK surgery designed to enhance vision and reduce dependency on glasses and contacts. After administering drops to numb peepers and mimicking a variety of whale calls to soothe nerves, ocular specialists use an enhanced excimer laser to reshape eyeballs' outer surface. Customized wavefront technology treats patients based on their eyes' individual topography. Clients stay awake for the less than 30-minute procedure, as laser beams spend 6-7 minutes working to restore visual clarity and allow clients to once again read the tiny diaries of their Polly Pocket dolls. After the surgery, an ocular shield must be worn during the first night while eyes heal. In FDA tests, 100% of LASIK patients were able to pass a driving test without wearing corrective lenses, and 98% had 20/20 vision.
Customers at Caldwell Seafood Market & Cafe can take home morsels of fresh raw seafood handpicked daily from the Fulton Fish Market or sit down to sample the cafe’s menu of chef-prepared gourmet fare. At the market, adopt a fresh pound of plump pink shrimp, a heavy slab of Norwegian salmon, or a gaggle of glistening sea scallops to take home and cook for an evening feast.

Then sidle up to the cafe to sample prepared fare such as grilled rainbow trout sprinkled in Cajun seasoning ($17.95) or the combo platter, on which a 4-ounce fillet bundled in breading beds down with three large fried shrimp, three jumbo sea scallops, and a teddy bear named Eddie ($19.95).
