Jersey Fresh

At a recent lecture one of our audience members, Nick Tufaro from the Middlesex County Planning Office, said that as recently as the early 1960s Middlesex County was the single largest broccoli producing county in the country. While I can't find documentation online, it makes sense that the Garden State was producing the truck farmed produce for New York City.

So it is interesting to see that despite evidence from our colleagues at SEBS, NJ is cutting it support from the profitable Jersey Fresh program.
