Who We Are
Oasis BackYard Farms invests all our efforts in helping you and your loved ones find health and well being through nutritious, organic non-GMO foods.
Founded in 2009 by Renee Mongiovi, Oasis Backyard Farms ('OBF') is committed to helping homeowners, charitable organizations and schools establish healthy, Non-GMO organic gardens. "I was introduced to vegetable gardening as a child and back then it was more of a necessity for our family, but I loved it! As I continued to garden into my adult years, gardening became both a wonderful hobby and a way to help others learn more about the benefits of healthy foods. In 2008 I left my corporate job to dedicate myself full time to helping others find the same satisfaction I have found by "Growing Something!"
Oasis BackYard Farms is family owned and based in the beautiful agrarian/equestrian town of Colts Neck in Monmouth County NJ. OBF has established over 500 organic gardens in the central NJ area over the past several years. Each garden is designed based on our clients personal needs and preferences and then constructed and planted by our trained staff. Most gardens consist of several cedar beds and planting areas, enough to provide healthy pesticide free produce for a family. Some of our gardens are very large, providing enough fresh vegetables to supply local food shelters all season long. Our goal is to satisfy each client's particular needs and goals and help them provide healthy food for the people who are most important to them.
As a full service provider of organic vegetable/herb gardens to home owners, Oasis BackYard Farms has received the Rutgers Organic Land Care Certification, and the only business specializing in home vegetable gardens to receive this certification. The certification process, offered by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE), focused on “sustainable, environmentally-friendly land care practices that improve soil health, promote biodiversity and reduce negative impacts on home landscapes as well as NJ’s natural resources”.
Oasis BackYard Farms is certified by the NJ DEP in Natural Landscape Management and Environmental Sustainability. We are also a member of NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) and Ms. Mongiovi is a frequent lecturer and instructor at many organic and environmental events, including NOFA, Rutgers University and Brookdale College.
