The Appalachian Trail in NJ/NY – In development

GNJP’s newest show, currently in development, will take the viewer on a journey along the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey and New York, meeting hikers, volunteers and stewards. Our journey will take us from the large-scale grandness of the trail to the up close and personal perspective of the thru hiker and day tripper.

We’ll explore glacial lakes and waterfalls, climb mountains, tramp along footbridges and trails, and examine human-made environments such as forest plantations, trails and structures created by the Civilian Conservation Corps under President Franklin Roosevelt.

Have you hiked or worked on the trail and would like to share your story? Please click here to fill out a brief survey so we can get in touch with you.  Thank you.

Looking for ways to prepare the produce you purchase at farms, farm markets, roadside stands and farmers markets? Watch as chef Stephanie Lett prepares a divine entree and check out our delicious recipes – as well as ideas on matching your meals with Jersey wine.

What is Greener New Jersey Productions?


Through the production of lively, entertaining and informative video content for web and TV, GNJP is showing the richness and accessibility of the greener side of the state – a New Jersey many have forgot existed or never knew was there.  We’re helping to change how the Garden State is perceived.

We hope you will support continued farmland preservation, open space conservation and historic preservation and that you visit the parks, hike the trails, canoe the waterways, camp in the forests, explore historic sites and purchase fresh produce at local farmers’ markets.
