New Jersey Tour de Farm Ride

IMG_1058Last minute we decided to participate in the New Jersey Tour de Farm ride. Scheduled three times in August and September, the routes are designed around farms. Local farms serve as the rest stops and provide tastings of their wares, water, and portable restrooms. You are welcome to spend time chatting with the farmers and visiting animals. It’s a reminder why New Jersey is called the Garden State.
