We can hardly wait for NJ Fresh!, the new series on NJN hosted by Megan Gunning and Barbara Seelig-Brown. The four-part series, which airs in November and December, features visits to four farmers markets across the state as well as side trips to several farms, exploring the connections between land, people and food. The series helps New Jerseyans find the freshest produce and learn how it’s grown. The segments also include a peek at honey production, lavender fields, artisan cheese and sheep shearing as well as cooking segments using farm fresh ingredients.
The first episode, featuring a trip to the Hunterdon Land Trust Alliance‘s farmer’s market at Dvoor Farm, with visits also to Comeback Farm and Bobolink Dairy, airs on Tuesday, November 9 at 9:30 pm.
