Farms are the lifeblood of Caldo Sauces and Hot Sauce 4 Good. We are honored to be working with some of the best farms and farmers in the state of New Jersey!
The Van Nuys family has owned and operated Hillsboro Farm since 1867. Originally a dairy farm with over 150 milking cows, Hillsboro Farm now focuses on providing the community with farm fresh produce in the summer and fall, featuring old fashioned pumpkin picking and hay rides during the Halloween season at the Country Market. Other current crops at Hillsboro Farm include hay, straw, rye and soybeans.
Norz Hill Farm
Norz-Hill Farm is owned and operated by Richard Norz, Sr. and Rich & Debbie Norz and their children Alex, Susie, & Megan. Their family started farming at the present location in 1920. Rich, Sr.’s grandparents originated the farm. In 1962, at the age of 16, Rich Sr. took over the farm operation after the death of his father. Rich Jr joined in operating Norz-Hill Farm as a fourth generation family member after high school in 1987.
They are located 35 miles southwest of New York City in Central New Jersey. Norz-Hill Farm consists of 1200 acres of owned and rented ground. They grow crops of corn, soybeans, alfalfa and timothy hay, rye, pumpkins, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables. The home farm is in the New Jersey Farmland Preservation Program. Other operations of the farm are raising dairy replacement heifers, and we also have many other different kinds of animals, such as horses, sheep, goats, llamas and even three zonkeys just to name a few. We also have a road side produce market during the summer and fall, where we sell Jersey Fresh vegetables we grow right here on the farm. During the fall we also have many family activities such as pick you own pumpkins, hay rides, farm tours, a corn maze and even a haunted trail.
Dogwood Farms is a USDA certified organic farm owned and operated by Jon & Kim Knox. As a Jersey native, Jon knew the Garden State would be a perfect place for a farm offering fresh produce and meats to families, all grown and raised sustainably in Hillsborough, NJ.
With 35 acres leased from Duke Farms, Jon & Kim have built a traditionally diverse farm with fresh produce and pasture-raised meats. Support from Duke Farms was crucial in launching Dogwood Farms and ensuring the farm's long term sustainability.
In four years, Dogwood Farms has more than tripled vegetable/meat CSA programs, and expanded their business into offering specialty items ranging from salsas and sauces to hot sauce and soaps.
After opening their retail space in May 2016, Dogwood Farms hopes to continue expanding local partnerships with other small business owners. Almost all products sold in the store are grown by Dogwood Farms, or sourced from small businesses within a 50 mile radius. This concept and philosophy is at the heart of the Dogwood Farms retail space.
