Agricultural Resources

Farms and farmstands, and orchards and vineyards, abound in the New Jersey Highlands. Nearly 13% of the land in the region is dedicated to agricultural uses. Agriculture provides jobs and contributes to our local economy. Farms add to the scenic beauty of the region, and provide opportunities for tourism.

Farming is a way of life for many. The state and local governments recognize the benefits agriculture adds to the economy and to the quality of life in the Highlands. However, agricultural viability remains at risk due to high operating costs and development pressures.
