(TRENTON) – New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher today announced the debut of the new place to discover and explore all things Jersey Fresh at www.FindJerseyFresh.com. One of the website’s features includes a search function to allow customers to find where the closest Jersey Fresh produce is available.
“This website is an easy-to-use tool for our Jersey Fresh customers,” Secretary Fisher said. “It allows shoppers to find out how close they are to farm markets that sell Jersey Fresh products. While making the shopping experience easier for our long-time Jersey Fresh customers, we also believe it will help attract new consumers with its user-friendly features.”
The search feature targets farms within a specific area, as well as specific types of produce. The search function also includes where to find wineries, breweries and distilleries as well as agritourism activities.
“The site is truly the hub for all things Jersey Fresh, directing consumers to farms and retailers that promote the brand, showcasing unique recipe videos and other creative content, and highlighting the diverse men and women that grow some of the best produce in the world,” NJDA Division of Marketing and Development Director Tom Beaver said.
Established in 1984 by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, the Jersey Fresh logo was designed to inform consumers which fruits and vegetables were grown in the Garden State. The Jersey Fresh logo guarantees the produce was grown in New Jersey. The state grows more than 100 different varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs.
