Totten Family Farm is a preserved 80-acre Certified Naturally Grown farm in Long Valley, NJ.
As stewards of the land it is our objective to efficiently raise high quality,healthy food in a sustainable manner. We are driven by a deep rooted need to utilize the skills and preserve the traditions that have sustained humankind for so long. We consider food raised in a pure, ecological, and humane manner to be a basic right essential to good health. It is our duty and honor as farmers and land stewards to fulfill this right with integrity and imprint its value on current and future generations.
Under new management this year, the farm will expand its offerings to include mixed vegetables, in addition to pasture raised chickens, ducks, turkeys, and eggs. Other anticipated products this year include grass fed lamb and pasture raised pork. By selecting heritage breeds we hope to preserve priceless genetic diversity.
To ensure happy, healthy animals we employ management techniques such as good nutrition, low stocking densities, frequent movement to fresh pasture, interspecies grazing, and alternating fields between grazing, haying, and vegetable production. We never use hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. The animals that do require grain are fed organic grain. Through our management techniques we encourage all of our animals to forage from our lush pastures of mixed grasses and legumes. Scraps from our sustainably managed gardens may also be fed. We feed dry hay from our own fields during the winter months.
Our products are available at our farm stand, at farmers markets, and at select area stores and restaurants. We prefer to take preorders for our meats. In addition we offer mixed vegetables, vegetable starts, cut flowers, nursery trees, farm baked pies, honey, Christmas trees, medicinal herbs, and educational programs.
