Wagner Farm Arboretum in Warren Township opens Farmers Market 6/20/13

Cow

Big news in Warren Township, New Jersey!  The Wagner Farm Arboretum, located at 197 Mountain Boulevard is going to begin it's first Farmers Market on June 20.

When I was a kid, my mom and I used to visit Wagner Farm to see the dairy cows and get our fresh milk in a glass bottle from their small country store.  We did this ritually every week.

We visited the cows, watched them being milked, let the black and white beauties lick our hands (they loved our salty hands!), recycled our used bottle and got our milk. And if I was good, mom let me have a fruit roll up treat that they sold. (Raspberry was my favorite flavor). When we were lucky enough, mom bought a bottle of chocolate milk too. (that was the best treat ever)!

 

 

This is a good representation of what the bottles looked like:

Sadly, the farm closed down in 1987. (History of Wagner Farm) As a kid, I was sooo bummed to lose such a fun family ritual.  

Luckily, the township bought the property in 2001 for the purpose of preserving open space.  Kudos to the planning board~!!  

In 2004, a foundation was established and The Wagner Farm Arboretum.

And now the most important news of all!:
