Swan Bay Folk Art Center & Farm

in Port Republic, NJ

Nestled in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey is Swan Bay Folk Art Center, a place where people can come to learn skills from days gone by in order to create pieces of their own history.  For 28 years, Niki Giberson and her husband Gary have run Swan Bay Folk Art Center out of their home, a sheep farm settled on land that has been in Gary's family since 1637.  


Welcome, friends!  Pour yourself a cup of tea and see what new and exciting things are going on

                                                                                                 at the farm, gas station, studio, and classrooms!


Eight classes will be offered at 10am on Fridays at Swan Bay Folk Art Center and will focus on Jersey Fresh or  summer fare recipes along with a featured basket.  You are not obligated to make the featured basket, but the recipe and tasting will still be offered.
