Beach Plum Farm
Overview: If you are staying in Cape May and want a destination to ride your bikes to, check out Beach Plum Farm. Named for a native fruit found on natural coastal dunes, this 62 acre farm grows more than 100 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. Because it is a working farm, you will also find chickens, ducks, and pigs that roam certain areas of the property. Open daily during the summer season from 10 am to 4 pm, the farm is located at 140 Stevens Street, West Cape May, NJ. Click here for biking directions. Please note that we recommend avoiding Sunset Boulevard as per the Bike Cape May Safety Map. Instead, use Second Avenue for a safer ride.
