Griggstown Farm Market

484 Bunker Hill Road

Griggstown Quail Farm, started in 1973 by George Rude with 12 quail on two acres of land, now raises pheasants, quail, chicken, and when in season, Mallard and Muscovy ducks, Red Bourbon heritage turkeys (as well as white), and partridge. All the birds are free-range and all natural, a standard George keeps to this day.

The Griggstown Farm Market, located on the farm, opened in 2002 to make its poultry available to the public by selling fresh and frozen poultry along with choice produce grown on the farm. In 2004, George added a USDA certified kitchen and storage area to the Market and hired Chef Matthew Sytsema. Today the Griggstown Farm Market offers many items including chicken and turkey pot pies, assorted fruit pies, cakes, cookies, assorted hand pies, soups, turkey chili, and turkey patties.

Each week, each in-season crop will be harvested from our CSA plot and divided amongst the participating shareholders. Throughout the growing season (June thru October), shareholders stop by our farm to pick up their share of the weekly harvest. Typically, the shares start out with cold-hardy crops at the beginning of the spring, swell as the summer's bounty matures, and return to the spring offerings in the fall before the fields are put to rest for the winter. We encourage our shareholders to embrace the seasonality of New Jersey agriculture and remain open-minded to our changing availability.

Shareholders may pick-up the weekly harvest on Thursday and Friday from 12-6 pm throughout the 20-week season. We anticipate an early June start date and a late October end date. Our farm is located at 484 Bunker Hill Rd. in Princeton, NJ.
