Pilesgrove Township is a residential and farming community in the north-central part of Salem County, New Jersey. Bordered by Alloway and Carneys Point, Pilesgrove completely surrounds the borough of Woodstown, which serves as the commercial core of the Pilesgrove – Woodstown doughnut towns. It may be oddly shaped, but it is a charming community.
Pilesgrove shares a common early history with the rest of the region. The area was first inhabited by the Lenni Lenape tribe who lived along the Delaware River valley. After the settlers moved into the region, land sales were negotiated, and communities formed. There is some confusion over one of the earliest deeds, one listing notes Thomas Pile, sometimes spelled Pyle, and the other shows the name as James Pile. No matter the first name, the town earned its moniker from Pile when he purchased ten thousand acres in 1682.
To protect their local farmers from nuisance lawsuits, in 1979, Pilesgrove was the first in the state of New Jersey to enforce the right-to-farm law. Under it, farms have a “natural right” to exist within the township as long as city ordinances are being obeyed. This law protects farmers who use standard farming practices from lawsuits that include noise, odors, visual clutter, and much more. All fifty states have also incorporated some version of these laws.
Pilesgrove is also home to two New Jersey wineries, Auburn Road Vineyards, and Chestnut Run Farm. Auburn Road was first planted in 2004 and opened to the public in 2007. They are an advocate of directly shipping wine from the vineyard to the customers and offer a bistro that sells cheese, soups, and bread. Chestnut Run Farm is known for their Fuji apple and Asian pear wines. Sales began in 2007 and a tasting room opened in 2012. Like Auburn Road, Chestnut Run also advocates direct shipping to customers.
