From early summer berries to haystacks and pumpkin
pickin’ in the fall, you’ll reap plenty of delicious produce
and enjoy a day the whole family will long remember. Many
farms feature their own homemade ciders, jams and pies,
and some even have choose-and-cut Christmas trees.

The State University’s outreach wing, Rutgers Cooperative Extension in
Davidson's Mill Pond Park, offers programs such as the Master Gardeners
Environmental Stewardship program, 4-H Youth Development clubs and
federally funded nutrition classes. University faculty offer programs and
research to serve the county’s diverse population.
The EARTH Center uses its demonstration areas—including a
1000-square-foot vegetable garden, a 13-bed herb garden, native plant
displays and an arboretum—to spark conversation about local agriculture,
horticulture, pest management, and earth-friendly gardening topics like
alternative energy & bio-fuels, rain gardens and composting. The EARTH
Center is also a resource for scout troops, providing a place to work on
achievement badges and fulfill volunteer time requirements.
Our Master Gardeners have built and maintain a Butterfly House through
the growing season, open on summer weekends from 10 am to noon.
Come marvel at the pollinators while learning how you can help support
them in your own backyard.
These demonstration gardens can turn a walk in the park into a learning
experience for visitors during regular daylight park hours.
Pick your own!
