AGRICULTURE SECRETARY EMBARKS ON TWO-DAY JERSEY FRESH TOUR
Looks like Cape May will play host to a governmental VIP this Thursday. The Jersey Fresh Love Tour is making the rounds. Here are the details, just picked Jersey Fresh
New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher will travel through South Jersey on Thursday, July 30, on the first day of his two-day “Jersey Fresh Love Tour,” making stops at farms, farmers markets, restaurants, wineries and breweries, highlighting the peak of Jersey Fresh season in the Garden State.
The Department of Agriculture kicked off its Jersey Fresh Love social media campaign in May to promote Jersey Fresh. Since then, people have been posting pictures of Jersey Fresh on their social media channels. The Department has been showcasing some of those pictures once a week on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr. The photos have depicted farm visits, recipes, home-grown produce, farmers markets and more.
The Jersey Fresh program is 31 years old this year and identifies to consumers produce grown by New Jersey farmers.
Secretary Fisher’s two-day Jersey Fresh Love tour will take him from the tip of Cape May up to the northern reaches of Sussex County. People interested in following the tour in real time can tune in to Twitter @JerseyFreshNJDA and Instagram @jerseyfreshNJDA.
