Business and Agriculture

One important element to consider when moving to New Jersey is our local business and “farm to table” culture of agriculture.

A diversity of industries including aerospace and defense, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, manufacturing, transportation and logistics, engineering and architecture, and healthcare give an educated workforce a plethora of options to choose from.

Agriculture is another big business boon. Along with “traditional agriculture,” the area boasts many innovations in agritourism. These include:
