NJDA visits highlight Jersey Fresh produce

towNew Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher recently made several stops at farm and distribution operations to highlight the arrival of Jersey Fresh fruits and vegetables. The Landisville Produce Co-Op, Vineland Produce Auction, A.T. Buzby Farm, Circle M Farms, and Jersey Legacy Farms were all included in the tour.

“We are at the height of Jersey Fresh season and now is a great time to enjoy all the favorites,” said Fisher. “From tomatoes, sweet corn, peaches, blueberries, and cucumbers, to romaine and other lettuces, our farmers grow them all. These crops are available at farmers markets, supermarkets, farm stands, and CSA’s. With New Jersey producing over 100 different crops, there are varieties of specialty fruits and vegetables available in abundant supply.”
