Italian Immigrant, Salvatore Maugeri begin farming in America

About Maugeri Farms

In 1922 Salvatore "Sam" Maugeri came to America along with his wife Alfia from Catania, Sicily. Others from their homeland had settled in the Swedesboro\Woolwich Twp. area. They worked long hours in the summers picking crops in the fields as farm laborers, eventually becoming sharecroppers with another established farmer.

Finally, they had saved enough money to buy their own farm and in 1928 they settled on a beautiful farm nestled on the banks of the Oldmans Creek and Maugeri Farms was born. Salvatore farmed successfully for many years and his son Joe took over the operation.

With the help of his wife ,Anna, Joe built a prosperous business, purchasing another farm on Oldmans Creek Road where he and Anna lived, worked, and raised their family. The new location became the main center of farming operations. Other land was leased for additional production. Eventually, the torch was passed and the next generation took over.

They continue to sell their produce to wholesale distributors and markets, as well as supplying many of the roadside markets from Pennsylvania, to the Jersey Shore, to far North Jersey.

The rich soils of the Oldmans Creek basin have long been known for producing the sweetest and most flavorful produce in the area.

In 2007 a new venture was started with "Harvest Days". For the first time in 80 years Maugeri Farms was open to the public for hayrides, pumpkin picking and other fall festivities. This year a retail produce stand will sell farm fresh fruits and vegetables directly to the consumer.

From it's humble beginnings, through three generations and 8 decades of family farming, one overriding principle has been the cornerstone of the company's success. An unwavering commitment to providing our customers with the absolute freshest, and highest quality produce available. We bring that same dedication to our new ventures and will continue to hold ourselves to those high standards in the future.
