LeGates Farm: Future Home to the NJ Farmers Cooperative
The NJ Farmers Cooperative looks forward to the future of Legates farm at 3400 Bayshore Road in North Cape May. Before we raise the roof, we are working on raising more funds to turn this plan into a reality for local residents and visitors who enjoy the convenience of buying fresh produce and other food products, as well as supporting artists, artisans and musicians in a place where community can gather.

"SUSTAIN AND SERVE!"
NJ Farmers Cooperative Continues Serving the Community with Support from
The NJ Economic Development Authority
The New Jersey Farmers Cooperative (NJFC) has completed work on a follow-on grant from the NJEDA’s Sustain and Serve NJ Program, which allocates funding to organizations to purchase meals from New Jersey-based restaurants that have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This program was created because the COVID-19 pandemic impacted restaurants and their employees harder than almost any other industry. The grant was provided through theNJEDA’s Sustain & Serve NJ Program.
Barbra Hamilton Bray Wilde, Executive Director of the NJ Farmers Cooperative, announced that the work has been completed! Over 350,000 meals have been made and delivered throughout New Jersey as a result of the hard work of volunteers and partnerships with local charities that provide services to the underserved residents in the state. The New Jersey Farmers Cooperative had the pleasure of partnering with organizations such as: the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, The Branches Center of Rio Grande, and local school districts. Community volunteers and Willow Creek Winery stepped up to prepare and distribute these meals.
It is projects like these that make the NJ Farmers Cooperative a valuable addition to the communities in Southern New Jersey and beyond.
