Ripple Hill Farm

Ripple Hill Farm
181 Mountain Road

Ripple Hill Farm is a small family-owned and operated farm located in Basking Ridge, NJ.  As second generation farmers, we are proud to be an active part of our community.  We have been growing peaches, apples and tomatoes for over 50 years.  The USDA suggests you get to know your food by learning about local farms and we enjoy being a part of this process.  We appreciate your support as we continue to farm this property, teaching your children where food comes from and maintaining the rural aesthetic.

On Sundays during September and October we open to the public for "pick-your-own" apples as well as the opportunity to buy fresh produce of anything in season which the farmer picks within hours of you buying for the freshest taste.  We grow many varieties of apples to stretch our harvesting season.  In early September you can pick Macintosh and Gala, while Granny Smith and Stayman Winesaps are available later in the season.  We suggest coming out every few weeks to try the different varieties.  Each variety is unique but they subtly vary by the season with the differences in rainfall and temperature.  Note how they taste different than grocery store versions as well!
