Griggstown Quail Farm is a beautiful example of sustainable farm management. Griggstown Quail Farm is 75 acres of free-range pheasants, quail, chickens, and poussins and when in season, ducks and turkeys. Griggstown Quail Farm supplies top NY and NJ restaurants and fine food shops. Products can also be found at local farm markets during spring, summer, and autumn months. Starting this year, Griggstown CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) offers families a weekly supply of naturally grown vegetables and herbs.
Sustenance dinners take place in farm fields, orchards, and historic sites. The farmer takes the 100 or more guests on a guided tour of the farm, and during dinner guests hear from the farmer, chef, winemaker, and food artisans about the connection between our palates, our plates, and our planet.
