Established in January 2020, Closter Farm & Livestock Co. is a certified Organic farm in Closter, NJ focused on providing incredibly flavorful, highly nutritious food to the communities in Bergen County and the South Hudson Valley. They use low and no-till practices, favoring hand tools and human-scale farming practices to large machinery. In their first year, they grew over 35 varieties of crops sourced from employee-owned seed companies and planted over 140 native pollinators and trees.

Jared, the farmer, began his farming career in North Carolina as an apprentice on a 250 acre diversified market farm, run by a PhD in soil biology and NC State Extension agent. Upon completion of the apprenticeship, he moved to Hopewell, NJ to work at Double Brook Farm, an 800 acre, vertically integrated farm. In the fall of 2020, he began working on the plans for what would become Closter Farm.
