The Garden State never fails to impress.

Farmers in the state are producing so much bok choy, a Chinese cabbage, that New Jersey ranks among the top 10 producing states nationwide.

In fact, there are several crops for which New Jersey ranks among the top producers in the country.

You can probably already guess that we're among the major players for healthy foods like blueberries and cranberries. But the list is much longer than that.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture keeps track of which crops are growing where, and how much activity is happening in each state.

According to a 2022 census, New Jersey is home to nearly 10,000 farms.
