Internship informationGeneral Farm Description: Adrian's Garden is an organic mixed vegetable farm on beautiful silty loam soil in a small valley near Princeton, NJ. We grow a bit of everything but specialize in salad greens, tomatoes, and peppers. Working closely with chefs over the last 6 years has led us to an obsession with growing the most delicious produce possible. As it turns out, deliciousness has a causal relationship with healthy soil, healthy plants, and reduced disease and insect pressure. This is always the goal, and we're always striving to get a little bit better. Efficient farming systems, whether in the wash / pack barn or in the field are very important to us as well.
