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. This show includes a visit to a Art & Carol Brown’s B&B blueberry farm, Plagido’s Winery where blueberry wine is produced, Historic Whitesbog Village and Evelyn’s at the Red Barn where the most divine blueberry pies are baked.
GNJP is in the process of raising $5,000 to complete Jersey Blues.
Cumberland County is fulling funded, completed and will be available online shortly.
We must raise $5,000 to complete Jersey Blues, which has been filmed and is in editing. It will be a beautiful, mouthwatering show!
