About Us

The Burlington County Board of Commissioners preserved the 68-acre Winner dairy farm in Moorestown and Mt. Laurel Townships in 2005 following local opposition to a large-scale commercial development proposal.  The farm is located in a suburban, densely populated area of the State with a population of 686,783 residing within a 10-mile radius.  Concerned that this population is losing its connectivity to the land and the rich agricultural history and heritage of the region, the Commissioners established the Burlington County Agricultural Center as an educational facility focused on food production, health and nutrition, and land stewardship.  The property continues as a working farm leased to the Carlisle family who raise sheep and farm the ground.

The Agricultural Center features a weekly Farmers Market on Saturdays from May through mid-November, community gardens, demonstration gardens maintained by the Master Gardener Program, field plots maintained by Rutgers Cooperative Extension Service, and a commercial kitchen.  Both the Farmhouse, commercial kitchen and outdoor area are available to rent for private events. We offer classes for adults and children (culinary, home and garden, homesteading) throughout the year.  The Farmhouse hosts an antique collection reflecting life on the farm in earlier times, most of which was generously donated by the New Jersey Museum of Agriculture.

When market season is over look for special Holiday Markets the Saturday before Thanksgiving and the first Saturday in December.
