Starting this week, we’re celebrating “Jersey Fresh Fridays” here at Jersey Bites. We are very excited to announce our new partnership with the New Jersey Department of Agriculture’s Jersey Fresh program. For the next several months, we’ll explore everything Jersey Fresh, from CSAs to fisheries to pick-your-own farms and more. We’ll also include recipes featuring some of the more than 100 varieties of fruits, vegetables, and herbs grown in the Garden State.
Using #JerseyFreshFriday please include us in your adventures at local farmers markets, fishing trips, festivals, and even when you’re sharing what you’ve got growing in your own backyard.
The Jersey Fresh program, which marked its 30th anniversary last year, started as a basic ad campaign on the radio in 1984. The initiative has grown into a brand that reaches nearly every state in the nation and many countries abroad. Jersey Fresh is an expression of pride for all New Jerseyans.
One of the reasons I started Jersey Bites back in 2007 was that I truly love my home state. I want the world to know about the beautiful places statewide that we are fortunate enough to enjoy, and the delicious foods we produce and export all over the world.
We hope you’ll join Jersey Bites for our Jersey Fresh journey and share your own personal Jersey Fresh adventures with us. We can’t wait to see them!
