From the Garden has been closed in the wake of the tragic loss of Patty. Though things will never feel truly normal without Patty here, we feel ready to carve out a new routine, which includes reopening From the Garden to the public. Our gates will reopen this Thursday, July 7 at 10am. Moving forward, our hours will be as follows:

Monday and Tuesday: closed
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday: 10am-4pm
Saturday and Sunday: 10am-3pm

Our hours will be shorter and we will be closed an extra day each week. We do hope our customers who love getting honey from our farm will continue to find these hours convenient. If they are not, From the Garden honey is also available at the following local retailers:

-Shop Rite Stores (Natural Food Department) - Howell, Freehold, Marlboro, Aberdeen, Hazlet, West Long Branch, Wall Route 34, and Belmar Route 35
-Whole Foods Markets - Middletown and Wall locations
-Delicious Orchards - 320 Route 34, Colts Neck
-Allaire Community Farm - 2840 Allaire Rd, Wall
-Tony's Pharmacy - 3333 Route 9 #50, Freehold

We will also return to our two farmer's markets this weekend. Honey, body care products, and flower bouquets will be available every Saturday from 10am-3pm at Belmar Fresh and every Sunday from 11am-4pm at Asbury Fresh through the rest of the summer.

Our web store is currently closed. We will reopen fromthegarden.com to online ordering on Tuesday, July 12.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience these changes will cause.

From the entire From the Garden family, thank you for your support and patience with us during this difficult time. We hope to see you soon.

Patty <

It seems impossible to find any words, let alone the right words, to address the incomprehensible loss of our beloved “honey lady,” Patty Madzin. But, somehow, so many of you have found the right words. We sincerely appreciate each and every message on our website, Facebook post, and phone call. Thank you for sharing your love, sympathies, and memories. Patty holds a very dear place in the hearts of so many of us. It was impossible not to feel special in her presence. It was impossible not to be positively affected by her warmth, kindness, sincerity, and generosity. And it is the most impossible to imagine a world in which she is simply no longer here.

From the Garden is closed for now, but we intend to reopen after the 4th of July. We will update our social media and website with an exact opening date soon. We appreciate your positive thoughts, prayers, patience, and respect for our privacy while we try to process this very difficult loss.

As our friend Holly worded it so perfectly, Patty “was as bright and beautiful as the flowers she so loved, she was busier than the busiest of bees and sweeter than the sweetest honey. She will be missed immensely, remembered fondly and loved always.”

From the Garden Presents: Edible Landscape

Locally grown food is an essential element to healthy living and good eating, and what better way to keep it local than to go in your own back yard? From The Garden’s newest project is a program we’re calling Edible Landscape. We are now offering for sale an array of what we have grown on the farm since opening. All of the products being made available are plants that grow plentifully to our area, and are provided in the list below.

By going from the tree in your back yard, right into your kitchen, you get to cash in on all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants not as readily available from store bought produce. Buying a tree from Edible Landscape is a great way to improve your home garden and to give back to the environment. 

We are going to be offering Edible Landscape products at our Spring Fling event on Sunday May 1st and throughout the year. 

  • Persimmons
  • Figs
  • Apples
  • Asian pear
  • Jujube
  • Honey berries
  • Peaches
  • Goji berries
  • Chestnut
  • Plum
  • Pawpaw

Spring is Coming

Spring will be here before you know it, and in anticipation for the good weather we're very pleased to announce that we are hosting our 3rd Annual Spring Fling! It's going to be on Sunday May 1st from 10am-4pm. All the vendors from our shop that you love will be there, along with some new friends who we're eager to share with you. Mark your calendars and we hope to see you all there!

Two Weeks Notice

Hey gang, just a quck reminder that it's February 1st! That's two weeks until Valentine's Day and the last thing you want is to be the guy doing the mad scramble at the pharmacy grabbing the last box of chocolates on the 13th. Come into the shop for pre made or customized gifts. Everything from Jam, candles, candy, chocolates and other treats by us and our friends at Midnight Candle Company, Holly Jolly Jams and Bittersweet Foods.

We are also going to be taking orders and setting up mixed bouquets of flowers for your special someone. Don't spend Valentine's on the couch gentlemen, and stop into From The Garden for all you need. See y'all soon!

Reopen And It Feels So Good!

Hey everyone, just a quick note that From The Garden is back open and we are more than ready to offer you all your favorite goodies to get you through the winter. Honey, jam, tea, candles to make your place smell great and more. Now that the cold is finally here, you'll be needing honey for your tea, jam for your toast and anything else your appetite can imagine. 

Christmas Closing

From The Garden will be closed from Christmas Eve and will reopen on Tuesday January 5th. Our online store will also be closed for the remainder of the year and will reopen after New Years. Thanks so much to all of our customers, friends, family and various combinations of the above for all your love and interest in our little shop. Have a Merry Christmas, a happy New Year and we hope to see all of you around through the winter. 

Christmas Vacation.

All the things you love about Christmas: family, presents, food, decorations, we all love too and want to make a point to enjoy as much as possible. We are going to be closing on Thursday, December 24th and will not be back open until Tuesday January 5th. Be sure to stop in before Christmas Eve for any last minute gift items you may need. We plan on being fully stocked on everything from Holly Jolly Jams to Midnight Candles, homemade candy, body products, gift cards, baskets and of course the sweetest local raw honey around.
