Our Story

Sourland Farm is a family run backyard farm located on top of the Sourland Mountain in Hillsborough Township, NJ. We take pride in offering the freshest natural eggs possible at a reasonable price. We only deal in small quanitities to ensure that you’re getting the freshest eggs, that weren’t sitting around for days or weeks.

Come Visit Our New Self-Serve Farm Stand

Come meet “Ellie” our newest addition to the farm.

“Ellie” is a rescue from S.A.V.E.  She is extremely friendly and loves to run & play. She just adores having visitors and will wiggle around at your feet, only stopping to let you scratch her head or rub her belly. She keeps a watchful eye on the flock and chases off any of the local predators.
