As new generations farmed and the years passed, changes were made. The work horses were traded for tractors, and for many years the farm produced potatoes and various grains while being farmed by Henry M.’s son, Bob VonThun Sr.
In 1986, Bob Jr. formed a partnership with his dad which enabled them to farm alongside each other until his dad retired in 2004. Together they added a farm market and pick your own fields to help change the farm’s focus to producing small fruits and vegetables. Today, our homegrown, fresh fruits and vegetables are sold both wholesale and retail through our Farm Markets and Farmers Markets throughout the state.
Five generations of VonThun’s, along with a hard working staff, have worked many long hours to bring you healthy and delicious Jersey Fresh fruits and vegetables.
Over the years, the farm has become more diversified. Greenhouses were added in 1989, and u-pick berry crops were added. In 1995, Bob & Cindy started expanding the Fall season on the farm.
Along with growing fields of farm fresh produce, two apple orchards, and acres and acres of pumpkins, VonThun’s Farm is kept busy with a CSA Program, hayrides, a fun, interactive corn maze, and annual Fall family weekends.
