2018 U.S. Gran Fondo National Series, supported by Haute Route

Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Fondo - Garden State

October 13 - October 14 2018
Browns Mills, New Jersey, USA

Pedal your way past deep crimson cranberry bogs and uninhabited pine lands as you experience the unique agricultural history that gave this state its fabled nickname -- Garden State

About one quarter of the State of New Jersey is a largely uninhabited preserve called the Pinelands. The Pinelands are a result of geological transformations occurring over millenia, with humans beginning to shape the landscape 10,000 years ago.

European settlement brought towns and industries to the Pines, and began to change the landscape in ways previously unseen. The ghostly remains of industrial villages like Martha, where an iron furnace operated in the early 1800s, and Harrisville, where a paper mill flourished in the late 1800s, can still be seen. Company towns like Double Trouble Village, a cranberry farm and packing plant, and our venue Whitesbog Village, where Elizabeth White domesticated the blueberry, are today well-preserved examples of a bygone way of life in the Pines.

Today, large-scale cranberry and blueberry farming continue to provide an economic foundation for the region, making New Jersey the second-largest producer of blueberries in the country.
