Springdale Farm – Camden County, New Jersey

I decided to visit Springdale Farms because it’s the last operational Farm in Cherry Hill. In 1931, when Cherry Hill was known as Delaware Township, 82 farms were in operation. Springdale Road, which is home to the only working farm left in the township, was a dirt road. A chicken farm resided at the intersection of Route 70 and Springdale Road and another one near where Cherry Hill High School East is located on Kresson Road. In fact, all you could see in those days were farms up and down Springdale Road. It’s pretty cool to go and visit the last farm standing in Cherry Hill, New Jersey!

 

3 Reasons my Family Loves Springdale Farms

 

  • The pumpkin patch was very large! They had a big variety of different sizes of pumpkins to choose from. The big ones being perfect for carving, the medium ones for painting, and the smallest ones for pumpkin pies.

 

  • A nice hayride down to the pumpkin patch! It was so nice looking at the beautiful blue sky. We also so green beans, cabbage, and a variety of other vegetables and fruits that could be purchased inside the farmers market.

 

  • We liked seeing the bunnies and the roosters.
