East Amwell Township is a rural haven tucked away in the southeast corner of Hunterdon County. The township has worked for many years to make East Amwell a place where farming comes first. That commitment has paid off, and the township is home to many preserved farms, including a 61 acre farm on Wertsville Road recently preserved by the township with the help of the Hunterdon Land Trust.
Organizations like the Hunterdon Land Trust are built of relationships similar to the connections between living things in the natural world.
Together, we can create a community with abundant clean water and fresh air, where healthy food is grown at local farms and everyone can enjoy open spaces and beautiful landscapes. For me, it’s a commitment I gladly undertake – to protect the places I love for the people I love.
Shopping at a local farmers’ market means you are helping ensure that farms and farming families remain in your community, and you are creating a healthy and secure food future for the Garden State.
