“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” — Theodore Roosevelt
That’s what the Haines family has been doing in the Pine Barrens since 1890, when
Martin L. Haines first began harvesting his bogs in Hogwallow, just south of Chatsworth.
- What we do: grow high quality berries at a low cost.
- What we have: pride, integrity, and commitment.
- Where we are: the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey, where we’ve been using what is there–the native fruit, the sandy soil, and abundant water–to build a successful business and help preserve one of the largest areas of undeveloped wilderness in the United States.
A great deal happens on a cranberry farm after the harvest is done; we plan to show you the rewards of farming in the pines year-round, and hope you’ll come to love the land and community as much as we do.
