The farm started as one hundred eight acres of property, where forty acres were tillable, and they quickly expanded that to one hundred. They also had a new innovation to work with their horses, they had a tractor, the toast of the town. Today David Sheppard Jr.’s vegetables are all organic and he continues his family’s legacy of three hundred thirty-six years on local land.
Cumberland County is considered the “Garden Spot of the Garden State. With only about seven hundred seventy-six residents, that leaves a lot of agricultural lands here. The local area of Cedarville was farmland for the Lenni Lenape people as well, long before European settlers arrived. They made small villages near the streams and burned plots of land in controlled fires to create fertile fields. They mixed the timber ash with fish and animal parts and waste to make fertilizer. The Delaware People grew pumpkins, beans, squash, and maize. They even grew melons. This went on sustainably for thousands of years.
When the Swedish settlers came, they continued these traditions and added more crops. The oldest still running farm under continuous ownership here is the Sayre-Howell farm. Joseph Sayre bought two hundred acres in 1697, which is still run by direct relatives today. James Howell is the current generation’s owner-operator.
