Kim’s Country Market offers DeWolf’s public face
NEW EGYPT, N.J. — Kim’s Country Market, DeWolf’s bustling retail operation at the front of the farm, was launched in the mid-1970s.
As of mid-May, only a few produce bins were filled with vegetables like lettuce and kale and garlic, but as the growing season progresses, all the bins will be filled with their own tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, potatoes and beans.
Kim’s Country Market has several large refrigerators with soda, water, iced tea and other cold drinks to satisfy people driving back in from the fields, and it also offers a variety of packaged snacks to customers who’ve worked up an appetite out in the fresh air.
Sitting on one shelf already are two dozen bottles of Trapper’s Honey.
“Angelo’s honey is the best,” Kim DeWolf said, adding nearby beekeeper Angelo Trapani of Clarksburg is also in charge of bees at DeWolf’s Farm, adding “we use him for all the pollination out here.”
Aside from Trapper’s Honey, DeWolf also sells crushed tomatoes, baked goods, jellies and jams and canning supplies.
Fields where they don’t allow you-pick include fields of cantaloupes, she said, as you-pick customers have a tendency to leave slightly off-color cantaloupes to rot in the fields. So instead her crews pick them and she sells them only at Kim’s Country Market.
Most years, Kim’s Country Market and the you-pick farm fields behind it opens around May 1.
“It depends on the weather,” she said, “we won’t open if we don’t have anything to pick or anything to sell. But we’re open and then our last day after agri-tourism hay rides and things in the fall is the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.”
