Dutch farmers were the first Europeans to settle central NJ and for the next three centuries played a central role in creating the towns and communities we call home.
Produced by the Millstone Valley Preservation Coalition with funding from Somerset County and the State of New Jersey, this documentary covers local agriculture right up to the present day farm-to-table movement. Today the farm-to-table renaissance has rejuvenated farming and inspired a vibrant restaurant scene. The story behind local landmarks and farm families is told in this short film, which will be followed by a panel discussion featuring leaders of the local farm-to-table movement, including Chris Albrecht, Executive Chef of the Ryland Inn; Alec Gioseffi, President of the Cherry Valley Co-Op; and Ryck Suydam, owner of Suydam Farms and President of the NJ Farm Bureau.
