Hillcrest Orchard & Dairy


Hillcrest Orchard & Dairy

Hillcrest Orchard and Dairy is a 67 acre apple orchard and dairy farm in Branchville, New Jersey. We have been in operation since 1998.


In 2018, we endeavored into the cheese making business and Jersey Girl Cheese was born! Our farmstead cheese is produced directly in our own facility using our own milk, exclusively.  All our cheese is made by experts from Italy.


Along with the dairy herd, the farm also boasts a beautiful apple orchard atop a rolling hillside. We have over ten varieties of apples, including Honeycrisp, Gala, Macintosh, and Fuji. Hillcrest Orchard is partnered with Union Hill Farms in Denville, New Jersey.


We offer apple picking to the public starting in early September. Take a charming hay ride up to orchards to pick your own apples! 


We also press and bottle our own apple cider and make the most delicious, fluffy and crispy apple cider donuts. These can be purchased from our Farm Store along with our own Jersey Girl Cheese.


We love to show guests around our farm and share information about our all-natural milk and beef. Our customers are always welcome to see our cows and chickens up close and personal.


We take pride in our wholesome, family farm and we love to offer the farm to table experience with all our customers and friends.


See you at the farm!
