Thank you for your interest in Agritourism
and Sussex County - New Jersey's Greenest County. Agriculture
and tourism are two important components of Sussex County's
economy. This website is a compilation of information gathered
on those agricultural enterprises that offer products or services
to the public. Whether you seek seasonal farm fresh produce,
the opportunity to pick your own vegetables, fruit or berries,
cut your own Christmas tree, enjoy a horseback ride, purchase Jersey Grown
flowers or simply want an enjoyable drive through our rural countryside,
you can find it in Sussex County.
A visit in the Winter months may include a family outing to find the perfect
Christmas tree, a sleigh ride over farm fields or a stay in a Bed and Breakfast
within our farming communities. Come in the Spring and enjoy the awakening of
the season as fields are planted and baby animals are born. There are farms offering
educational experiences on how our food is produced. Visit a greenhouse and take
home a piece of Sussex County for your garden. The Summer offers abundant choices such as pick
your own vegetables, fruits or berries and farmstands with specialty foods
including fresh eggs and organic produce. The Autumn is a special time in Sussex
County. Our Fall colors rival those of New England, and our scenic vistas and
state and federal parklands offer opportunities for outdoor
activities including horseback riding over miles of public and private trails.
This is harvest time. Take a harvest hayride through corn fields to that special
pumpkin patch. Watch the fiery colors of Fall while sipping fresh apple cider.
No matter what your favorite time of year is, remember to return and visit us through all the Seasons of Agriculture in Sussex County.
