Each year, we create an Autumnal Wonderland full of one-of-a-kind displays and locally-grown pumpkins of every shape and size. Whether you need a small pumpkin that weighs less than a pound or a large pumpkin, we’ve got the perfect pumpkin for you. You’ll find all shapes, sizes and colors of pumpkins and gourds as well as corn stalks, hay bales and autumn garden decorations.
When it comes to corn, fresh is best, so buying local at the farmer’s market is key in finding the best tasting corn on the cob. You just can’t get that same sensation from produce that’s been picked, boxed, and transported to sit for days in displays at large commercial stores. To make the best of summer’s sweet corn while at its peak, here are Donna’s suggestions and tips for serving one of the most delicious treats of the season.

You’ll know these pies are for real the moment your taste buds savor these scrumptious concoctions. Available in the Farmer’s Market.
A Father's Day Tribute by Donna Dorsey for her beloved father, Richard Osborne, our founder. Lately I’ve been noticing I say the same things he used to say And I even find myself acting the very same way I tap my fingers on the table To the rhythm in my soul And I jingle the car keys When I’m ready to go

Fall into Goffle Brook Farms for Autumn Beauty. Autumn in northeastern New Jersey is a spectacular display of Nature’s palette. Splashes of reds, oranges, yellows and burgundy create awe inspiring scenes to be enjoyed all across the region. Take a Sunday drive to the mountains or country or just take a short hop to see us in Ridgewood and you’ll revel in an atmosphere of autumn color and décor. Here at Goffle Brook Farms Garden Center we’ve enjoyed experiencing Autumn with our customers for over 54 years now and we’ve come to know what they love about the Fall Season.
Fresh Local Produce available at the Farmer's Market. The main health benefit of locally grown food is that it’s fresher. Fruits and vegetables begin to lose their nutrients within 24 hours of being picked, so fresher produce is more nutritious. In addition, locally grown food is picked at its peak ripeness, when it’s most dense with nutrients.

Mid to Late August is a collage of colors at the garden center / farmer’s market. The perennials are bursting with a mesmerizing display of hues and colors, accented with the seasonal color of annuals in their most productive stage of flowering before cooler weather sets in next month.
Honey, specifically raw, pure and unpasteurized, is considered a super food. Raw honey comes straight from the honeycomb. Most of the honey you see in the grocery store is processed and the pollen is removed and it is a far cry from the health promoting powerhouse of its raw, pure unpasteurized counterpart. At our farmers market in Ridgewood N.J. we have the “real deal“ Nina's Red Barn Farm Honey.
Here’s a selection of unique, bizarre and interesting plant facts. I got the idea for this post when my good friend Mags was browsing our website and espied an image of Yarrow on the herbs page. She said “why’s yarrow on the herb page? Aren’t they flowers?” I replied “Yes they do flower, however they are classified as a medicinal herb.” To this she replied “oh, I never knew that. That’s interesting”. We both shared a smile and some laughter over that little conversation. She then said; you should do a blog post called “did you know that”.
