What Is The Great Meadows Cow Parade?

It is Our Biggest Event of the Year!

Everyone here at Cherry Grove Farm hopes you can make it out to our Great Meadows Cow Parade event on November 4th from 12-5 pm. The event is to help shine light on all the great local food, fun, and music we have here in New Jersey, to provide a fun time for friends and families, and to thank our lovely cows for all their hard work!

Come out and enjoy our farm and taste your way through our farmstead cheeses; enjoy local grilled cheese with Chef Carmine and whey-fed pork sausage sandwiches; warm up with Purple Cow’s Soups; experience new cheese pairings with Jersey Jams & Jellies; and learn how to make your own homemade mozzarella. In addition, the kids can have fun with the 4-H club of Mercer, face painting with Christina, and Science Seeds farmstead science experiments! Take a ride on our hayride, shimmy and shake to the rhythm of the Riverside Bluegrass Band, and watch a real blacksmith at work.

Don’t miss the full farm experience as we celebrate and thank our dairy herd for providing us with the most wonderful grass-fed milk to make our farmstead cheeses. Cheer on the procession as our herd marches through the scenic organic fields, concluding their parade in our milking parlor. We hope to see you all there!

Thank you to all of our lovely local vendors!

*Please note that the store will be only available to attendees of the event on the day of the Cow Parade. Please plan accordingly!
