New Jersey Farmers Will Miss Departing Agriculture Secretary

As a NJ landscaping company and tree farm, I would like to acknowledge the New Jersey Agriculture Secretary Charlie Kuperus . Secretary Kuperus gave his farewell speech last Wednesday in Flemington NJ. In his speech he noted the importance of “greater conservation programs and a re-energized farmland preservation effort.” As he finishes his seven year term Secretary Kuperus will be remembered for his efforts in connecting the products of the New Jersey farmer and the Jersey Fresh brand to community markets, restaurants, food retailers and schools.  As New Jersey farmers face the greatest economic challenges in generations, it’s the efforts of the public officials like Secretary Kuperus that will help farmers survive the tough road ahead.
