Want to get away from the city? Head to Hacklebarney Farm in Chester NJ

The best part about fall is going to the family farm in Chester, NJ.    The property has been in the family since 1860 when my great, great, great grandfather purchased 150 acres of land. What started off as a farm, complete with livestock now has focus  on apples, with a Farm Store, working Cider Mill (cloth and rack system) and Bakery (with Cider Donuts, Apple Dumplings, and Fresh Apple Pies – just to name a few…).    The Farm is still completely family-run (a rarity these days) by my Dad and his partner, Grandparents, Aunts & Uncles.

There’s nothing quite like a visit there.  It is truly one of the most charming places in the world (if I do say so myself) – even if they put me to work when I visit!

Hacklebarney Farm Cider Mill and Bakery is Open Wednesday – Sunday, now through Thanksgiving and weekends in December until Christmas.  Check out the new facebook page:
