From their website:

"McCormack Farms is located in the New Monmouth section of Middletown, N.J. on land owned and operated by the same family since 1880. Our goal is to produce quality fruits and vegetables, in season. The roadside stand operates under a large green and white striped tent on the farm on Tindall Road.

We open in the Spring as soon as asparagus is available; strawberries soon follow. We then close for a few weeks to plant and cultivate more crops. The stand re-opens toward the end of July and remains open throughout October. McCormack Farms offers a plethora of produce grown on-site and includes: freshly harvested tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, eggplants, peppers, hot peppers, okra, onions, string beans, cantaloupes, watermelons, summer squash, cucumbers, blackberries and raspberries.

We conclude the season in the Autumn, with winter squash, pumpkins, and sweet potatoes.
In an area that was once mostly farmland, we are one of the last commercial farms in Middletown. Members of our family, dedicated to farming and a fealty to the land, have worked to maintain this property as farmland. The land itself remains largely unchanged from colonial times. In 2008, our farm entered the Monmouth County Agricultural Preservation Program, becoming permanently preserved as farmland. Our farm will remain in agricultural production in perpetuity.

We are a local farm supported by a wonderful group of customers who appreciate our freshly harvested produce. Our stand is usually open Monday through Saturday from 1pm to 6pm. We are closed on Sundays. Since the stand is open-air, if the weather is very inclement, we may also be closed. Please call ahead at 732-671-0162. You may also visit us at facebook.com/mccormackfarmsmiddletown. We look forward to seeing you!"

They also had a nice selection of hot peppers including banana, Hungarian, Anaheim, Thai and ghost, and squash, eggplant and decorative pumpkins.

They also had silver queen fresh corn.

Again, please visit if you are in the area. The tomatoes were delicious.

Those pictures make me wish I liked raw tomatoes (SAVE IT I’VE HEARD IT ALL…)

I’ve been eating corn from here my entire life…good stuff. I’m surprised middletown hasn’t taxed these hard working folks out of business.

Id like to try a ghost pepper…a tiny bit.
