For four generations, the Formisano family have pooled their energy and experience to grow and ship farm-fresh produce and beautiful perennial flowers to their loyal customers. With their full-service farm, they pride themselves on both innovation and customer service as they deliver the freshest herbs, lettuces, vegetables and the prettiest blooms of summer.
Rich and Sherry Marolda have farmed together every day of their twenty-five-year marriage, producing some of the most beautiful vine-ripened tomatoes, leeks, herbs, greens, watermelon and butternut squash grown anywhere. A dedication to freshness and flavor runs all through their family farm, where they are now welcoming their son, Rich Jr., to the business. Sherry understands that nature needs a helping hand and says with pride, “We put in the hours to make beautiful, quality produce”.
This south Jersey farm first opened in 1903 when immigrant Callie D' Ottavio cleared his first 40 acres with horses and dynamite to grow sweet potatoes and broccoli. Today, growing over eighty conventional and organic fruits and vegetables, including 150 acres of blueberries, grandson Mike has expanded M. D' Ottavio Produce into one of the largest and most respected farms in New Jersey.
