Best Way to Show Your Love for the Pine Barrens


 More than just an historical landmark, this general store is the place to be if you’re looking for artisan gifts, candy, books, apparel and homemade marmalades that celebrate the wonders of the Pine Barrens. The store first began as a post office in 1923 and has since become a significant part of Whitesbog historical preservation.  Article can be found at http://sjmagazine.net/july-2017/best-sj-2017

Welcome to the homepage of Whitesbog Village, an early 20th-century company town and agricultural community. In the early 1900s, Whitesbog was the largest cranberry farm in New Jersey, and its founder, Joseph J. White, was a nationally recognized leader in the cranberry industry. Aside from its immense success with cranberries, Whitesbog is also where the highbush blueberry was first successfully cultivated.

Today, Whitesbog is part of Brendan T. Byrne State Forest and is listed on both the National and State Registers of Historic Sites.  Whitesbog includes the village and the surrounding 3,000 acres of cranberry bogs, blueberry fields, reservoirs, sugar sand roads, and Pine Barrens forests.

Many folks in NJ are not aware of the scope of the Pine Barrens - 1/4 of the state is uninhabited pine lands. Whitesbog village is at the northern edge of the Pine Barrens, about halfway between Philadelphia and the shore. It is accessible by 'hardtop road' and well worth a visit. The drive on sand roads through the old cranberry bogs and past the site where Elizabeth White cultivated the first commercial blueberry is a remarkable experience. I've taken people from all over the US, Europe and South America there, and all have been amazed. Beautiful drive, and a well preserved turn-of-the-century village where the commercial blueberry was born (and cranberries are still grown). The general store is where I buy all my jams and jellies, not to mention books on the area and Jersey devil shirts. A great starting point to learn about the Pine Barrens, and an experience that you will never forget. An amazing part of NJ, American and food history! -DR, Browns Mills, NJ
