New Jersey’s Cranberry Farming & Historic Culture During the Holidays

As you’re drinking cocktails with cranberries this holiday season, remember these berries have a high chance of being grown in New Jersey. The history of New Jersey cranberries even led to the creation of Ocean Spray. Growing up in the Pine Barrens is a unique and challenging ecosystem. Hopefully, this is the beginning of learning more about the 1-million-acre national reserve known as the Pinelands in New Jersey.
