Welcome to Sassafras Hill Farm, where we are very excited to begin our second year of production in the Jersey Pines. The ten-acre farm will produce mixed specialty and heirloom vegetables this season, with plans for fruit and forest products in the future. The farmers at Sassafras Hill endeavor to practice sound environmental stewardship and sustainable methods growing our crops according to Certified Naturally Grown standards, we do our best to ensure you can enjoy farm products that are good for you and the earth. 

With only 2% of Americans growing the nations food, it is never more imperative that Americans start growing healthy, sustainable food. That is why here at Sassafras Hill we grow only healthy Certified Naturally Grown produce. 

 Sassafras Hill is always changing and is a 10 acre working farm situated in Barnegat NJ, right on Route 72! We plan to be involved in the community by offering seminars and events related to agricultural education.

Certified Naturally Grown is a Grassroots Alternative to the USDA’s National Organic Program meant primarily for small farmers distributing through local channels - farmer’s markets, roadside stands, local restaurants, community supported agriculture (CSA) programs and small local grocery stores - the farmers that make up your local landscape!

The CNG Standards and growing requirements are based on the USDA National Organic Program rules. They are no less strict- in fact CNG farmers are constantly improving their soil and striving to increase the sustainability of their farming operations. The primary difference between Certified Naturally Grown and the USDA Organic program is cost to farmers and paperwork requirements.
