Jersey Fresh hosts EPC meeting for 27th consecutive year

DSC 9900The Eastern Produce Council's May 20 dinner meeting took place under clear blue skies and delightfully warm temperatures. As always, a large crowd gathered at Demarest Farm in Hillsdale, NJ, which for many years has hosted the dinner meeting sponsored by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture and often called the Jersey Fresh cookout. This was the 27th consecutive year that Jersey Fresh has sponsored an EPC meeting.

EPC President Paul Kneeland; Al Murray, New Jersey's assistant secretary of agriculture; New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture Douglas H. Fisher; and John McAleavey, executive director of EPC.
