Our Just Farmed Story
Now entering our 7th year, Just Farmed originated in 2013 with a mission to help local households gain easier access to the NJ/PA/NY organic, sustainable and responsibly practicing farms. Our goal has always been to bring locally grown items directly to your doorstep. In year two, we purchased our very own farm, Flipside, and have since obtained our Organic growers certification on that land. Flipside Farm also has it’s own farm box program, providing individuals with the “on farm” experience via weekly pick up at our on-site CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) market. We source many products from our own farm, but still have a mission to support as many local farms as possible in our region. We choose items that are responsibly grown and often feature items that are unique to a given farm. Over the last 6 season we’ve expanded our delivery to most parts of Union and Monmouth counties in New Jersey. We’ve added multiple box sizes, “pick your own” options and several “add ons” – all conveniently and electronically accessed on this website. Convenience, quality, great service and flexibility are some of our top priorities, and we aim to achieve a seamless transition of food from the farms directly to your home or business.
We always choose locally first, then certified organic and then move to sustainable/IPM/conventional if there are items we’d like to feature that are not available in the organic form. Organic means the harvest has not been processed or grown using synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. The food also could not have been produced using genetic engineering, growth hormones, irradiation or antibiotics. Farms must have been free from chemical use for at least three years and subject to inspection before being certified organic, and must undergo frequent soil tests. Crops must also be rotated, which is that the same crop is not grown on the same plot of land year after year. These farms will be our first choice, however, in order to provide a good variety it might be necessary to move to a sustainable product. We will make the best selections based on each farms practices. We’ll help you cook and eat with the seasons, and we’ll deliver it directly from the farm to your door.
