From Our Farm to Your Table
The Race Farm is over seventy years old and the fourth generation of quality growers. We strive to provide our customers with the freshest, best quality produce we can possibly produce. For over seventy years our standards and mission have remained the same. Giving our customer's great, fresh, local produce, while helping to keep open ground and sustaining agriculture in New Jersey.
Our fourth generation farm was started in 1938 by Carl & Flora Race and was passed on to their son Carl and his wife Joyce in 1970. Carl and Joyce modernized the farm, and began a pick your own operation, as well as a road stand on Rt. 94. Decades later, they passed the farm onto their son Doug, who runs the farm with the help of his wife Jeanny, his mother Joyce, daughter Devin and son Ryan as well as numerous family and friends who help make the farm a labor of love!
