Welcome to Taylor River Side Farm.  This picturesque homestead on the Delaware River, in Cinnaminson, New Jersey, has been home to many generations of Taylors.  It all started when Joshua Wright purchased this land in 1720. Dr. Edward Taylor started the long line of Taylors on this land when he married Sarah Merritt, the daughter of Thomasin (nee Wright) and Jacob Merritt, in the late 1780’s. In 2013, Peter and Lily Taylor, with their daughter Abby arrived from Canada to continue the family tradition. Abby represents the 12th generation since Joshua Wright. She represents the 9th generation of Taylors to live on the land.

The new Taylors on the farm are embarking on a farming adventure! Master gardener, Lee Colley, who moved to the homestead in 2013 with his family, brings his passion and expertise to the farming operation. Lee is committed to the tradition of sustainable agriculture and has introduced several heirloom varieties of vegetables to the farm.

Taylor River Side Farm is dedicated to growing nutritious and delicious food in a family friendly, Earth friendly, naturally beautiful, New Jersey setting, just 15 miles upriver from Philadelphia.

Here’s what you’ll find on our website:

  • Daily Ops — A place to read about what’s happening and what’s growing. In the Ground lets you know what we’ve planted and when it’ll be ready for harvest.
  • Interactive — We invite family, friends, and visitors to share their experiences past and present on the dedicated Share With Us page.
  • The Past and Present — We’ll post historic photos as well as more recent ones depicting our farm operations on the History and Photos pages.
