We had such a great morning at Eastmont Orchards in Colts Neck this weekend! With summer fading away, and school about to begin, there was no better place to spend some time apple and peach picking with my crew. Eastmont is the perfect place to pick delicious apples and peaches and pick up some local honey, jam, and seasonal veggies on their farm stand!
A truly iconic Monmouth County establishment, Eastmont Orchards (formerly Delicious Orchards) has been owned by the Barclay family since 1923. In those days apples grown in this area were sold locally or shipped by barges out of Red Bank, down the Navesink River all the way to New York City. Later, as transportation improved, fruit was shipped directly to supermarkets or exported from the shipping ports of New York City and Philadelphia. Today they sell all of our products retail and direct to the consumer via “pick-your-own.”
Later in September, Eastmont also offers gourds, mums, pumpkins, bales of hay, and more seasonal veggies. The farm provides the perfect backdrop to take Fall fun photos with the fam.
