Burlington County Community Agricultural Center
The Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders purchased this farm in 2005 using dedicated revenue from its Farmland, Open Space and Park Trust Fund. This is a preserved, working farm dedicated to connecting the general public to agriculture, nature and gardening. This site is maintained and managed through unique public/private partnerships between farmers, gardeners and the Burlington County Park System.
This former dairy farm (owned by the Winner Family) was renamed the Burlington County Community Agricultural Center. On-going programs at the Ag Center include a tailgate farmers' market featuring Jersey Fresh produce, community gardens and special events, programs and education highlighting local agriculture. The primary goals of the site are to foster a public awareness and appreciation for local agriculture and to support the local agricultural economy.
This project is under the general administrative supervision of the Burlington County Department of Resource Conservation.
