Serving the Diversity of New Jersey Agriculture
This video features Farm Credit East’s Bridgeton, N.J. branch office manager, Scott Andersen, as he explains the diversity of New Jersey agriculture. Nursery, greenhouse and sod production are the largest sectors. The state also has a vibrant commercial fishing industry, with several ports along the coast. New Jersey producers grow more than 100 different fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes, sweet corn, blueberries and peaches. In addition, the state’s agriculture supports many jobs off the farm, including seed and fertilizer businesses, machinery and equipment dealerships, trucking, cold storage facilities and food processing.
