Free Haven Farms was established in 2017 in Lawnside, N.J. Lawnside is a suburban community, located in Camden County; not exactly where most people would expect to find a farm. But Micaiah had a vision before the couple purchased their home in Cynthia's hometown to create a homestead farm where they could raise their children and also be able to show others in their community how to grow their own food. Our location allows us and our produce to be accessible to our community. We started out in 2017 by operating a farmer's market on site on Sundays. This year, in 2018, we've been distributing our produce using a CSA model and providing educational experiences on and off the farm.
