  • Steve Adubato Talks With State Secretary Of Agriculture Doug Fisher
    start with having beehives and develop distribution Or you may have an interest in growing herbs or flowers As a student one could enroll in an agricultural education program and Future Farmers of America at their high school What is meant by artisan farming Simply that whatever the farmer may produce then becomes a product that can be fashioned into something else For instance a farmer may have cows and decide to use the milk to make a more nuanced variety of cheese that is targeted to have special properties It becomes a whole other aspect of what they do There is fashion in everything There is fashion in food What new areas of farming have emerged One area is ethnic specialties There are certain crops that only one particular ethnic group is looking for and purchasing but then it spreads to a wider variety of folks It can be herbs that weren t grown before in New Jersey but are now For instance there is the Peppadew which is a sweet pepper that was originally grown in South Africa Someone brought it to New Jersey and now we are the North American headquarters for the Peppadew which is carried by many retail outlets and restaurants Recommended Reading There s Work to be Done Legislation in 2016 What are some other hot segments of the business Nutraceuticals have really taken off which are herbs and other plants that are being grown for their health benefits The blueberry and cranberry are two fruits which are highly sought after for their antioxidants and New Jersey is right in the front of this market in researching the ever increasing uses of these fruits Wine is another big trend as we have close to 50 vineyards that are producing highly prized varieties of grapes Are there any diminishing areas At one time New Jersey was the leader in dairy with over 3 000 herds Now we only have 85 which equates to about 9 000 cows We also were huge into growing potatoes in the middle part of the state and that is no longer the case Other commodities take their place such as soy beans Many people do not know we are well regarded for our soy bean crops and there has been talk of branding them as Jersey Fresh How important is Community Supported Agriculture That is an upcoming trend as well In a CSA a group of people pledge to support a farm operation in advance of the growing season In return they receive shares of the farm s bounty throughout the season While every CSA operates slightly differently customers buy specific size shares and pick up their produce at the farm on a regular basis or it is delivered directly to the end user There are no photos with those IDs or post 54080 does not have any attached images Read more Science Steve Adubato Only in NJ Towns Schools articles By submitting comments you grant permission for all or
