“Recall that whatever lofty things you might accomplish today, you will do them only because you first ate something that grew out of the dirt.” – Barbara Kingsolver
From a shared dream, Rolling Hills Farm began.
Located one mile outside of beautiful downtown Lambertville, New Jersey; the farm borders the Delaware River in a picturesque country setting where New Jersey really does earn its moniker as "The Garden State". Full of historical sites from both the Revolutionary War and Native populations, the land we farm is full of history.
We started the farm in 2014, and have built amazing relationships with many customers throughout the years.
Our goal is to provide our customers with the freshest most high quality produce they've ever seen and tasted.
After attending the University of Massachusetts-Amherst with a B.A. in Political Science, John went back to his roots and spent time living in Italy where he worked at a variety of farms and homesteads. While overseas, John realized agriculture was extremely important to him and he wanted to continue the lifestyle within the United States. Upon his return John spent two years working at local farms within central New Jersey where he improved his skills and techniques for growing organically. Having grown up in Titusville, New Jersey, his opportunity to farm in Lambertville was serendipitous. In his spare time, John enjoys public radio, mushroom hunting, getting lost in record stores, playing guitar, and a competitive game of disc golf.
While attending college, majoring in Environmental Science and Geology, Stephanie did front and back country work in national parks across the country. Growing tired of eating tomatoes out of a can she decided to channel her grandmother Mary and learn how to farm sustainably. She spent time in Palmer, Alaska working at a variety of farms including a CSA farm, a home school place-based education garden, a livestock farm, and a Musk Ox farm. During her time there she also taught Science to elementary school students. Afterwards she worked at a conventional wheat farm in Oilmont, Montana to get first hand experience learning about the downfalls of conventional agriculture. From there, over the next few years, she worked at farms in New York state and New Jersey, both growing and education, and that is where her love for small scale agriculture grew. Currently getting her masters of science in human nutrition she is passionate about the nutritional aspect of growing and eating food.
