Our Story

Historic photo of Phillips Farm in Holland Township, New Jersey. The Phillips family have been farming here for more than 200 years.

Two Centuries on the Farm

Phillips Farms has been owned and operated by the Phillips family for more than two centuries. Founded in 1806 by German immigrant Philip Rapp on 40 acres in what is now Holland Township, New Jersey, the farm today encompasses 300 acres  and produces an extensive variety of fruits, vegetables, and nursery plants.

A family effort

Marc Phillips grew up on the farm, and he and wife Holly began farming here right out of college, planting vegetables and fruit trees and building the first greenhouse. While Marc ran the farm, Holly juggled farm tasks with caring for their children and working as a registered nurse. After pursuing other careers after college, their children  — daughter Megan, son Jason, and his wife Chrissy — have returned to the farm full-time.
