New Jersey farmers are known for producing the highest quality produce and using the safest handling practices.  Consumers expect their produce to be safe to eat and consumer confidence is important to the state's produce industry.  Our Jersey Fresh farmers must meet the high-quality standards of the Jersey Fresh grading program.  It is more than an advertising logo.  It is a comprehensive program of assuring the highest quality product is coming from our local growers.
