The Bracco Family, lives in Cedar Grove, NJ and also own/run a very pure, independent, small batch, naturally-grown, sustainable family farm in Pine Island NY.   After running his graphic design business for nearly 30 years, in 2009 we decided to buy a farm to have a large garden where we would grow for ourselves the cleanest produce possible while working with the individual character of each natural season. 

We set out using Safe-Seed-Pledge Non-GMO seeds and instituting time-tested natural sustainable farming techniques along with hand-cultivation of weeds without the use of any herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, weed killers, chemicals or glyphosate.  To our surprise, so many people approached us to purchase what we were growing Bracco Farms was born.  Now, while still maintaining our original farm ethics and techniques, Bracco Farms supplies our farm stand, many farm2fork chefs and organic farmers who purchase our produce for their own farm stands.  We have also donated overages to Toni’s kitchen in Montclair along with other donating opportunities.

Now as a result of a great response from people we meet who desire to educate themselves and improve the quality of their food, Tony has been giving library, school & corporate gardening/farming talks.  Tony has even worked with a local New Jersey school in building a school garden for its students.

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, food safety and security has become an important priority for the general public. Many people are now seeking to start their own vegetable gardens to safely provide themselves and their families with fresh, naturally grown vegetables. Most are new to this endeavor and don’t know where to begin.

 

Through our “Victory Garden talks we will share our experience and hopefully help them and answer many of their questions so they too can experience the joy, satisfaction and security of growing their own food.
