LONG MEADOW FARM: 561 Blairstown Rd (County Rd. 521), Hope, NJ

 

Welcome to Longmeadow Farm! Started in 1993, we originally began by selling pumpkins for Halloween. But it wasn’t long before Bradley Burke, Longmeadow’s owner, felt that something more was in order. And with that decision, our apple orchard was planted. Today, Longmeadow Farm has 15 varieties of apples along with our pumpkins and so much more.

LL Pittenger Farm raises local and natural meat products along with a variety of quality hay. The land is devoted to providing pasture for the animals and crop production. All of the animals are humanely raised and are on a strict vegetarian diet. No hormones, antibiotics or steroids are fed, as we strive to keep the meat as natural as possible. We believe the animals' diet is a vital part of producing quality meat. 

 

Our farm store is open year round at our home, hours by appointment. All of our meat products are minimally processed at a local, federally inspected USDA facility. The individual cuts of beef, pork, goat and lamb are all vacuum sealed for an extended freezer life.

BEAR DEN ALPACA FARM: 88 Hoagland Rd, Blairstown, NJ 

 

Bear's Den Alpacas is located in beautiful Blairstown, NJ, Warren County. Glenn and Mary bought their first animals in April 2010. When Glenn and Mary met, they discovered that they each had a "bear" nickname in College - Glenn was Bear, Mary was Mare-bear. When the time came to choose a farm name, Bear's Den was an obvious choice since a den is a cozy place that is warm and secure.
