Things to Do in Medford, NJ

Medford’s beautiful scenery takes precedence when it comes to activities that residents enjoy. Johnson’s Corner Farm is a popular attraction offering fresh produce and baked goods to visitors, as well as hay rides that lead to “pick your own” fields full of pumpkins, apples, strawberries, and more. The farm also features a market and a variety of activities to keep the kids entertained. 

The Woodford Cedar Run Wildlife Refuge is dedicated to preserving the wide variety of wildlife that calls Medford and its surrounding areas home. Medford families enjoy day trips to Cedar Run to visit the animals and learn more about the local ecosystem. The refuge also offers day camps and classes for further educational opportunities.

Visiting Medford’s downtown area, Medford Village, is a bit like stepping back in time. The brick sidewalks and gas streetlights evoke a bygone era.
