Family-owned Starbrite Farm is a fine example of environmentally responsible management of a certified organic farm. Owner John Krueger, who has a degree in Environmental Sciences from Cook College, Rutgers University, has been farming for over 20 years. He came to Starbrite in 2002 and took over the operation the following year, at which time he began working with the Bloomfield-Montclair CSA (community supported agriculture) and selling at NJ farmers markets. Since then, four new CSA groups have been added and currently Starbrite Farm CSA groups provide vegetables, fruits, and herbs to more than 300 member families.
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.
