One of Wyckoff's treasures is Abma's Farm. Here's a profile from Wyckoff Patch:
The Abma family's farm is one of the few working farms left in Bergen County. The farm sits on 30-acres in Wyckoff and has been in the family for four generations.
We pride ourselves on a personal touch, a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and providing the community with the highest-quality natural produce, poultry, eggs, baked goods and homemade specialties. Everything is homegrown, raised with love, picked or cooked daily, and served fresh.
We believe in ecological farming practices and use organic, nutrient-rich soil and a special combination of natural growing techniques to control weeds, insects and fungus.
Our free range chickens are fed a high quality all natural diet, fortified with omega 3's. Each morning, we collect fresh eggs from our 600 Rhode Island red hens and 1,400 Leghorn chickens.
The plants in our greenhouses are grown right here on the farm, from the spring blooming Dutch bulbs to our Christmas poinsettias to tomato plants for your garden.
Abma's Farm is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Closed Sundays.
TOWN-WIDE OPPORTUNITY FOR RESIDENTS TO RECYCLE THEIR PERSONAL PAPER DOCUMENTS THROUGH SHREDDING
The Township of Wyckoff has scheduled a mobile paper shredding vehicle available on Saturday, November 12, 2011 in the parking lot of Memorial Town Hall, 340 Franklin Avenue for residents who wish to bring their paper documents and paper correspondence for shredding at no charge. Residents should bring their paper documents and correspondence in their own containers that residents can take home and re-use for the next shredding event. At 12 noon, the vehicle will transport the shredded paper to the recycling market where it will enter the recycling stream. A video display allows residents to witness the shredding of their documents.
Residents may bring only paper; no paper with metal tabs, no plastic bags, no x-rays and no single or double layer cardboard will be accepted. Residents that have cardboard can recycle their cardboard by taking it to the Recycling/Conservation Center at 476 W. Main Street.
