AquaSprout Farms (every other Saturday)
AquaSprout Farms is a small family farm and the first commercial Aquaponics farm in Somerset County NJ. Aquaponics is a farming practice that mimics the natural ecological processes of nature. Both Fish and plants are grown in one body of water in a closed loop system. It is a method of farming requiring about 1/10th of the water and a fraction of the land used in conventional farming. The fish waste in aquaponics provides a source of nutrients for the plants. Beneficial bacteria convert the toxic fish waste into a form of nutrients usable by the plant. By the plants consuming the nutrient they are cleaning the water for the fish. Unlike conventional farming chemical fertilizers/pesticides are not necessary, and therefore they are not used. This allows aquaponic farmers to grow truly organic produce to bring to the market. Offerings include Summer Crisp Lettuce, Butterhead lettuce, Green Curly Kale, Rainbow Swiss Chard, Cherry Tomatoes (limited), Basil, Radish microgreens, Sunflower microgreens, Pea shoot microgreens, and Broccoli microgreens.

BREAD & BAKED GOODS
Apple Ridge Farm + Untamed Ferments
Apple Ridge Farm is located in Saylorsburg, PA – owned by Brian Bruno and run by a group of hard-working people who are dedicated to producing healthy, nutrient-dense food in a sustainable manner.
In the barn, that means raising all of their animals on pasture with access to non-gmo feed, grass, and bugs. In the fields, it means producing nutrient-dense, chemical-free vegetables by feeding the soil natural inputs and minimizing tillage. In our stone-oven bakery, it means making bread the way bread used to be made, based on three simple ingredients: flour, water, and salt. Apple Ridge starts with regionally-grown flour that’s organic, unbleached, and unbrominated. Instead of using commercial yeast they use an all-natural sourdough starter to help make their bread easily digestible again. Their baking process takes much longer than your average modern-day bakery but the end result is a product they can be proud of and that people can eat and feel good about. Some of their baked goods and most of their value-added products feature ingredients grown right on the farm. As part of their commitment to local sustainability, they fuel their wood-fired oven with slab wood, a waste product from a local sawmill.
Apple Ridge offers wood-fired sourdough breads, pizza shells, muffins, cookies, scones, granola and more. They also offer pasture-raised eggs, chicken, chicken pot-pies, bone broth, soups and vegan chili.
