We grow it ourselves. For nearly 300 years, the Melick family has provided our community with delicious, locally grown, farm fresh fruits and vegetables! We also sell plants, shrubs, jams and jellies, baked goods, gifts, and even Christmas trees—all the products that people have come to rely on from the Melick family since about 1725.
We are the largest fruit grower in Central and Northern New Jersey, with over 650 acres of land. We have 120 acres of fruit trees, with over 5,000 peach trees and 20,000 apple trees!
Your family will also enjoy acres of fun at our seasonal locations for such activities as Pick-Your-Own Peaches, Apples, and Pumpkins. In the fall, we also offer horse drawn wagon rides to the field, School Tours, and much more!
You can buy our fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers, and other items at several locations, including the market in Oldwick, and the Califon market which also offers the opportunity to pick your own fruit in season, and at the Bridgewater Market. We also currently attend farmers' markets in Madison, Hoboken, Highland Park, Newark, New Providence, Chatham Borough, and Edison, bring fresh products closer to your door. See each location for hours & directions.
Finally, you'll also want to visit our Cider Mill location, featuring our 150 year old barn, and 50 acres of orchards. Your family will have a wonderful time picking your own apples, and we offer hayrides on most weekends in September and October. We usually press the apples into our delicious, homemade cider on most days during the fall season. Our cider is then treated with ultraviolet light, preserving both freshness and flavor.
Call us the next time you are planning a birthday party, a tour for your group, a reception, or just a gathering of friends. We have many wonderful locations for you to choose from, and we are eager to make your visit most memorable!
