years of planning and construction, Bill Green’s vision came true when he officially opened Saddlehill Cellars Winery& Vineyards at Stafford Farm on April 10!

Green has invested significant funds to improve and beautify the site to make it a community destination.  

“I bought this thing knowing I was going to have to put more into it. If my name is on it, or my family name is on it, we want to make it special for our family as well as for the community,” Green said.  He views Stafford Farm as a “generational asset” for his children and grandchildren. “This is not to fix it up and sell it in a few years for a profit. This is a passion project for me and my family.”

Green is a “local boy” who grew up in Marlton, then raised his family first in Voorhees then in Cherry Hill.  A successful entrepreneur and author of several books, Green bought the 248-year-old 70-acre agricultural portion of the Stafford Farm on March 5, 2021.  The other 70 acres of Stafford Farm have been preserved as open space for over two decades by Voorhees Township in partnership with Camden County and the state.

Green is only the fourth owner of the land since 1773, when Gen. George Washington gave the land to his personal guard, Lt. John Stafford. The Stafford Family initially grew corn and potatoes on the land and later focused on growing hay and developing harness racing.

The land has always been a beautiful and scenic gateway to our community.  

Green said the vineyards are primed to produce premium quality grapes. Winemaker Peter Szerdahelyi brings his wealth of experience to create a portfolio of wines. Overlooking the vineyards, farm, pasture and flower gardens, the spacious tasting room is ready for visitors who can enjoy a relaxing wine pairing with food from the farmhouse kitchen in one of the indoor or outdoor seating areas. The tasting room offers a beautiful place to unwind and enjoy world-class wine, food or a tour of the vineyard.

Embracing the spirit of giving has always been a core principle for Bill and his wife Amy.  Their commitment to those in need is interwoven into the very fabric of Saddlehill.  The land grants them the opportunity to provide an educating and nurturing environment for children and young adults.  The farm includes alpacas and horses.  

Guided by their passion and under Amy’s leadership, they are eager to join hands with nonprofit organizations to make a positive impact.  The Saddlehill Foundation serves as their philanthropic arm, fostering partnerships with non-profit organizations that share their vision of social responsibilities.  Their flagship program is the Sprouting Connections Partnership, which brings the joy of the farm to children and young adults with special needs.

Through engaging activities, Sprouting Connections participants will explore and experience the benefits of:

Socialization: Building connections and fostering a sense of community with fellow participants and Saddlehill staff.
Physical Activity: Enjoying the outdoors and engaging in gentle exercise amidst the natural beauty of the farm.
Sensory Exploration: Immersing oneself in the sights, sounds, and smells of the vibrant farm environment.

The positive impact of the Sprouting Connections Program will be evident in the smiles, connections, and sense of well-being that will be cultivated on the farm.

We are thrilled that Saddlehill has also become a Silver Sponsor of the Voorhees Township Citizens Event Foundation, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote and celebrate community experiences throughout Voorhees Township.

Visit this new Voorhees gem called Saddlehill and explore everything it has to offer.  Schedule a vineyard tour and enjoy the firsthand experience of the beautiful world class winery right in our backyard.
