My son has been attending idTech Camp and each day either my husband or I would drive him to and from camp. It became sort of a new adventure each day as we would try new routes out to avoid traffic. One day my husband came home excited after passing what he described as a huge and beautiful farm that let you pick your own vegetables. What also made this farm different was that they posted a sign letting you know they ONLY sell what they grow. We decided that on Friday we should make an afternoon of it and off to Stults Farm we went with the two boys and my hubby.
The farm is beautiful, clean, organized, and well kept. They definitely take pride in their farm. They had tons of vegetables and fruits to pick from – sili (peppers) , talong (eggplant), watermelon, squash, corn, tomatoes, string bean, and so on. Then I saw it and I could not believe it! They grow Bittermelon! I could not imagine an American farm having Ampalaya—I was in heaven!!!! I was hesitant if they would they would let me pick the Ampalaya leaves, but my hubby said go ahead – all they can do is tell you not to do it next time. So I did and they didnt even care. I got my Ampalya and my Ampayla leaves! Masarap sa ginisang munggo, oh di ba!!!!
What a bounty from the farm! If you are in Cranbury NJ, I suggest you stop by Stults Farm. Oh, all this has me thinking about the Asian Pear farm our friends brought us to last fall. I can’t wait for that!
