Jersey fresh

This post was written in mid-August:

Fruits and vegetables are at their peak now and farm markets and roadside wagons are full of New Jersey’s best produce.

Chris Schaub of Schaub Farm encourages everyone to “not husk corn” until you are ready to cook it – corn looses its freshness after husking.

Tracy Duffield of Duffield’s Farm Market, enjoys talking to customers and educating them about healthy eating and farming. Inside their farm market the bins are full of their famous corn, greens, tomatoes, melons and peaches. Their bakery uses fresh fruits to make delicious desserts. We also look forward to their delicious apple cider donuts come fall.

Tracy is in charge of Ag Education and Promotion: their on-farm “learning barn” teach children with hands-on activities about food and agriculture. The charity gardens squash is grown by students from local schools. Their destination birthday party barns are full all summer and fall!

Agriculture is fun too!
