WELCOME TO RIFKIN FARMS!
Rifkin Farms, located on Route 527, has provided locals with farm fresh products for more than sixty years.
Owner Hal Rifkin continues to work the same land his parents purchased, though the business has undergone transformations.
It started out as a poultry farm. Then, in 1954 we became a dairy farm and pasteurized and processed our own milk and had routes. In the sixties, we dropped the dairy farm completely and started growing vegetables.
Throughout the market, peppers, cucumbers, string beans, and lettuce abound, along with Jersey staples like apples, corn and tomatoes. Rifkin Farms also sells an assortment of flowers. Petunias, marigolds, zinnias, begonias, and dahlias are just some of the choices offered to those with a green thumb.
The rifkin's work within the greenhouses a process that began on March 1 when shipments of flowers arrive. While the Rifkins have completed one phase of the summer cycle, the growing continues with produce.
"We're picking corn and the squash all every year, and the tomatoes too. The peppers and the tomatoes and the eggplants and the cantaloupes and watermelons come later in July, around the fifteenth.
