Through the years the farm market has continued to evolve with the times, still offering the finest quality fresh fruits and vegetables, but also offering many of the conveniences and services sought today by patrons: a from-scratch salad bar, country bakery, delicatessen, ice cream parlor, and an endless selection of indulgent goodies (like homemade doughnuts and apple cider!) as well as unique gift and gourmet items.

Real nice salad bar. Small, but delicious selection of soup and hot foods. Delicious baked goods. Love their donuts. Of course they sell delicious, but pricey, local grown fruits and veggies. Good flower selection. Nice outdoor dining. Apple and pumpkin picking in the fall along with hay rides.
$10 for a peck of apples. $7 admission fee for anyone 2 and over. they do give you a military discount if applicable. they have handy tools for you to use when picking apples. go as far down to pick apples from the trees. the front trees dont have any apples. the long line for the hayride goes by rather quickly as the drivers go back to back from farm to pick up location. the cider is crisp and refreshing. here is a pic of all the apples we picked.
Worst experience of my life. Started off by having no parking in the main and having to drive an additional 3 miles out of the way for extra parking then wait in line for a shuttle bus to get back to the farm. Added on an extra 40 mins before even getting into the “farm”. Then you need a ticket for everything.. to get on the necessary hay ride in order to get to the pumpkin patch/ apple orchard. We finally got to the front of the ticket line and told the young cashier that we wanted to go to the Apple orchard and she said “oh we’re not selling Apple tickets anymore” I was like “oh why is that” and she then started laughing and said because we ran out of apples. It is 3 in the afternoon on a Sunday and they ran out of apples in the orchard. After all of this we decided we weren’t going to go waste anymore of our time or money and we decided to skip the pumpkin patch too. We walked in the store to look for donuts and the line was so long and they were almost out of all the donuts too. I highly recommend going to a different farm because this one sucks. DO NOT GO HERE UNLESS YOU WANT A DAY OF WAITING IN LINES AND POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE. Hope this helps.
If I could give it 0 stars, I would. They have children directing traffic. It is far too crowded to enjoy anything. You can barely move in the market, and there’s no space to get on the lines. Don’t go here, spend the time to go somewhere else.
Went to Demarest today for some peach picking -- overall great experience! I have read/heard in the past to arrive early, a son it can get pretty crazy in there. Good thing we did, we were there early, in the first group in the orchard, and by 10:45 the lot was packed, beginning overflow into the new lot. Great bang for your buck, $10 for a peck bag to fill. Beautiful, juicy peaches are still in season. Tractor man was super sweet, girls inside not so much (as I asked where the tractor picks us up, and had to ask the boys outside in the parking lot since they ignored my question :) ) other than that, animals were cute and I'm looking forward to returning for apples in the fall. Hard to believe you're still in Bergen County while you're in the orchard.
