ABMA’S FARM IN WYCKOFF: THE PLACE TO BE THIS SUMMER


Abma’s Farm in Wyckoff, located at 700 Lawlins Road, is more than just a place to get fresh eggs and produce. The fully-stocked farm market includes a Tomasello Winery wine-tasting area, fresh produce, meats, farm-fresh eggs, jams, salsas, honey, homemade mozzarella, freshly baked bread and pies, prepared foods and gifts. The property also runs a petting zoo, a summer camp program, a CSA, seasonal events, and a greenhouse for flowers, herbs, plant starts, and garden equipment. The greenhouse, market, and petting zoo have loyalty programs for frequent guests.


Farm Market

The farm market is packed with fresh produce, poultry and eggs from Abma’s own chickens, and daily baked goods from their kitchen. In addition to fresh bread and pies, they have a large selection of prepared foods and a counter to order fresh salads and sandwiches.


The homegrown produce is grown from seed using sustainable agriculture methods. Their deli and kitchen offer sandwiches, buddha bowls, hot soups, yogurt parfaits, and meals to take home such as pot pies, quiches, and other entrees.


While at the market, you can pick up Abma’s own honey and honey products, in addition to salsa, dressings, jams and jellies, cheeses, pickles, BBQ and dipping sauces, and many other items. Most items are made at Abma’s or are from local businesses.


Tomasello Winery

Located in the back of the market, is a wine tasting and purchasing area for Tomasello wines. Call 609-547-5021 or email twabmas@gmail.com to make a reservation. You can order a cheese platter in advance on the Abma’s Farm website. Tomasello Winery is located in the Outer Coastal Plain of Atlantic County, NJ. Charlie and Jack Tomasello are third-generation winemakers and offer a wide selection of their wines in the Abma’s Farm Tasting Room.



Barnyard Petting Zoo

The petting zoo is open year-round and is a fun and easy family activity. The zoo is great for small kids and has a paved walkway suitable for strollers. The farm features goats, pigs, sheep, alpaca, donkeys, ponies, pigs, and more. One of the most popular attractions is “Bunnyville” where cute little rabbits live among miniature barns and homes.



Children under two are free. It is $5 per person for anyone over two and can be purchased online. Grandparents get in free every Wednesday. This is a great way to spend time with the grandkids. You can purchase animal crackers and carrot tops to feed the animals from the market. (You must purchase the bundle of carrots and just feed the bunnies the tops.) Pony rides are offered May through October, weather permitting, from 9:30 am – 4:00 pm.


Greenhouse

The Garden Center is located at the base of the entrance before you drive up to the market and petting zoo. Open mid-March through December, you can purchase homegrown annuals, custom-made container gardens, hanging baskets, patio pots, herbs and vegetable plants, and perennials.


The Greenhouse store also has some garden supplies, ceramic and terra cotta pottery, garden accents, and garden care products.


Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

A CSA is a weekly subscription service to a season’s worth of locally grown produce. Unlike going to a farmers’ market or getting a grocery delivery service, a CSA is picked the day you arrive to pick it up. Instead of choosing items, the CSA group chooses whatever is currently in a season that week and picks the ripest and freshest produce available that day.


Abma’s offers their own CSA. Sign up is in advance for the whole growing season, and goes through early fall. More information about Abma’s CSA program can be found on their website.


Summer Camp and Educational Programs:
