Conte Farms - Tabernacle, NJ

After a great lunch with my wife’s family, we all took a ride over to Conte Farm in Tabernacle, NJ in search of some fresh blueberries.  I have never been to Conte’s, but I have had their delicious fruit on multiple occasions, so it was nice to finally get over there.

We parked the car in their gravel lot and walked into their farm stand.   It was a very hot day, so I was very surprised to actually see people hopping on the trailer behind the tractor to head out into the blueberry fields!  WOW, these folks were much braver than I was!

Inside, I was pleasantly surprised at their nice selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Blueberries were a given, but they also had fresh strawberries, watermelon, and anything from lemons to limes to citrus which I am assuming they source from elsewhere.  They also had a very nice selection of fresh vegetables, different grilling sauces, dips, and salad dressings.

Next door, they have another building that contains their bakery, and they had all sorts of fresh baked goods.  We picked up their blueberry crumb cake, and it was absolutely fabulous!  Zelda’s Dad had a giant dish of soft serve ice cream that looked great, and we were too full and opted for a refreshing Stewart’s root beer instead that was just what the doctor ordered.

They also have many different baked and stuffed breads, cookies, cupcakes, etc.

All in all, it was a great Father’s Day visit, and I look forward to going back in the future.  And let me tell ya, the fresh blueberries are stellar, and we look forward to making a nice fresh fruit salad or something with them soon.  YUM!  Cheers!  -F. Scott
