About the Backer Family:
The Backer Family will soon celebrate its 100th Anniversary on the farm, which now includes the 5th generation to live in the farmhouse. Resiliency is an inherent quality of farming, farmers, and the Backer family. The Backer family has evolved its agriculture with changing times, enrolled in farmland preservation, and continued to voluntarily share the farm and farm products with its community.
The Backer family has provided farm-based education and passive recreation to community groups and donated farm-fresh produce to those in need, including first responders at Morristown Medical Center during the pandemic. The Backer family’s dedication to agricultural production, resiliency, and community connection is a tradition that will continue and the Backers look forward to continuing to serve the local community with this next evolution of the farm.
