Adopt a Fruit Tree

ADOPT A FRUIT TREE is a wonderful way to promote local farming and help feed our neighbors in need.

The number of families in New Jersey struggling with hunger is at an all-time high, affecting all facets of society: working adults, seniors, and particularly children. New Jersey’s food banks play a critical role in distributing food to local pantries to help feed the growing number of hungry people. It’s no surprise that food banks particularly welcome nutritious fresh fruit and vegetables from local farms!

peaches That is why Valley Crest Farm & Preserve, a nonprofit organization, is committed to donating over 60% of its produce to local food banks, pantries and shelters. We invite you be our partner in helping those in need. By adopting a peach or apple tree this year, you will support Valley Crest’s mission of education and increase our donations of fresh produce to feed hungry families.

The adoption can be for you, a family member, a group, business or in memory of a loved one. We encourage you to adopt a tree with others such as friends, neighbors, coworkers, or even a school or classroom. Tree adoption also makes a unique gift!

Orchard We encourage you to take a walk through our beautiful orchards and personally choose your tree to adopt. Everyone has a favorite apple and at Valley Crest there are over 20 varieties from which to choose, such as Granny Smith, Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious, Macintosh, Pink Lady, Honey Crisp, Cameo, Cortland, and more.

Email or call 908.455.0691 to adopt your tree today!
