Fresh! NJ Farms & Farmers Markets

$1,300 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 21 people in 19 months
Created May 30, 2017
Will you make a $25 donation to help us raise $2,500 for our show on farming in New Jersey?

100 $25 donations will get us there!




Thanks to you and other donors, we have raised $2,500 to complete Jersey Blues - now we need to raise another $2,500 to complete A Farm, Two Markets & A Grill.

Greener New Jersey Productions is a nonprofit producing shows for TV and the web on farming and parks in the Garden State.  We have three new shows on farming as part of the FRESH! series as we celebrate our five-year anniversary. 

The three new shows are CUMBERLAND CORNUCOPIA  in Cumberland County, JERSEY BLUES in South Jersey and A FARM, TWO MARKETS & A GRILL in Hunterdon County (descriptions  below).

CUMBERLAND CORNUCOPIA is completed and can be viewed at   https://vimeo.com/222704684 .  Thanks to you and our GoFundMe campaign plus other donors, we have raised the funding for Jersey Blues, which is in editing now.  

To complete the Hunterdon show, we must raise an additional $2,500 in July. Please consider making a donation of $25 or more.


Your donation is tax deductible and goes directly into the filming – not to overhead costs - and pays for the film crew, editor, graphic designer, music rights and closed captioning.

Please share with your friends so we can tell these wonderful stories  about farms, farmers and markets.

THE FRESH! SERIES

Jersey Blues - met goal & raised $2,500! Thank you!
Filmed & in editing now!
The Garden State ranks fifth in the nation in blueberry production. Chock full of antioxidants, blueberries are healthy and nutritious – but they are also outrageously delicious. We'll visit a farm, a famous pie baking barn, a winery, research center, the Pine Barrens and Whitesbog Village.

A Farm, Two Markets and A Grill - need $2,500
Residents of the river towns along the central part of the Delaware River seem to love roadside stands and farmers markets. This past summer, we visited Sandbrook Meadow Farm (an organic farm and CSA), the popular community-centered Homestead  Farm Market, the local vendor-centric Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers Market, and finish with food prep at Hamilton Grill, an award-winning restaurant in Lambertville.

Cumberland Cornucopia - Completed - Watch online!


In search of delicious and nutritious local produce and garden products, Megan heads to South Jersey. We’ll visit Sheppard Farms and Legacy Farms – an organic farm, tour the Eastern Fresh Distribution Center, find out about nursery products at Overdevest Nurseries, shop and dine the Bayshore Center’s Farmers Market & Oyster Cracker Cafe and help pick (and taste!) apples at Sunny Slope Farms.

You can watch our completed videos at http://www.greenernewjersey.org or on public television.

Thanks to you, GNJP raised the funding to complete the filming of Jersey Blues through GoFundMe and other donors. All filming is done, and the show is in editing and will be online this July. Cumberland Cornucopia is completed, ready for broadcast and will be online this week.

In July and August, we'll focus on fundraising for A Farm, Two Markets & A Grill. Once we raise the $2,500 for the additional shoot day as well as editing and other production costs, we'll move ahead.

We have also started fundraising for Trekking the Appalachian Trail for filming in 2018-19.

You made this happen - we hope you enjoy the shows once they're online. Meanwhile, you can watch our other shows at www.greenernewjersey.org.

Thanks to your support, GNJP was able to film at B&B Farms last Thursday. Here we are at B&B Farms in Atlantic County with show host Megan, former NJ Ag Commissioner Art Brown, Frank Foley on camera and a really cool family (three generations) who we interviewed on camera. We are now at $1,225 with GoFundMe and an additional $150 from other sources. We still need to raise $3,625 to film, edit and close caption the Hunterdon show as well as cover insurance, distribution, graphics and music. Thank you!
