Returning to a simpler way allows us to regain our dignity, puts us in touch with the land, and makes us value human contact again.

Reconnect at Beach Plum Farm with a completely interactive farm-to-fork cottage experience. We’ve named these escapes Rooted, with a goal to ground and restore the basic tenets of our relationship with nature and farm life.
For three days, you’ll be immersed in the rhythms of farm life with different themes to choose from. Our farmers will teach you how to raise backyard chickens; how to build and grow in small backyard greenhouses; how forage off the land; or how to experience the ultimate Birding getaway—all-the-while gaining an understanding of all the edible things right around us. Beach Plum Farm’s beautiful cottage accommodations are the perfect place to call home and the gentle, open spaces provide the perfect setting to explore, create, taste and live in simple harmony with the land.

Bees—particularly honeybees—play a vital role in agriculture by facilitating the pollination of many crops. The process of pollination is essential for the reproduction of flowering plants, including many of the fruits and vegetables grown in the fields at Beach Plum Farm. For over a decade, a beekeeping program has been a core focus of our efforts at Beach Plum, and now we invite you to learn the ins-and-outs of beekeeping with three days of interactive seminars.

Included in your Rooted: Beekeeping getaway:

  • Deluxe Overnight Cottage Accommodations
  • A Welcome Dinner Reception in the Hoop House on the Monday night of your arrival, where you'll join our Rooted hosts
  • A Guided Farm Tour on Tuesday morning, led by Christina Albert, Beach Plum Farm's Director of Agriculture
  • Guided Beekeeping Seminars on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon, led by expert instructors
  • A Yoga Session in the Kitchen Gardens on Wednesday morning
  • A Farm-to-Table Dinner on Wednesday evening, prepared specially for our Rooted guests
  • Working Lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, to refresh and fortify
  • A Farm-Fresh Breakfast each morning of your stay, delivered to your Cottage

The farm-to-table movement has grown exponentially in the last five years, but truthfully it is getting to the core of a very ancient practice. It hearkens back to a lifestyle that was both healthy and sustainable: consuming that which is available to us in this environment at this time, in this season. Modern technology has allowed us to use preservatives, expand the lifespan of fruits, vegetables and meats, to a point where this food no longer adds nourishment in the purest sense.

Since its inception in 2016, our Kitchen Garden has thrived as a tangible link between Beach Plum Farm and Cape May's vibrant culinary community. "From the beginning, the philosophy behind the raised beds was to create a place for our Chefs to experiment with different vegetables, fruits, and herbs," says Farm Agricultural Director Christina Albert.

And now, working through different seasons, seeds and soils, we invite you to join Christina in a hands-on gardening workshop.

Included in your Rooted: Early Spring Gardening getaway:

  • Deluxe Overnight Cottage Accommodations
  • A Welcome Dinner Reception in the Hoop House on the Monday night of your arrival, where you'll join our Rooted hosts
  • A Guided Farm Tour on Tuesday morning, led by Christina Albert, Beach Plum Farm's Director of Agriculture
