After earning a master of business administration from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, Tony Ehinger pursued a career in the financial sector, spending 25 years with Credit Suisse. Now retired, Tony Ehinger is currently pursuing another of his other interests by supporting farm-to-table eating at Sandy Farms in New Jersey.

Eating locally is a concept seen throughout the United States, and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture supports the idea through programs like Jersey Fresh. The Jersey Fresh program aims to inform consumers about locally grown food and promote its availability. Some of the products that Jersey Fresh promotes include seafood, fruits, vegetables, wine, and beer.

Jersey Fresh products can be found at farmer’s markets, roadside stands, pick-your-own farms, and organic farms located throughout the state. Its website also includes a list of ready-made products that contain Jersey Fresh ingredients. To learn more about Jersey Fresh, visit www.jerseyfresh.nj.gov.
