Welcome to the homepage of Whitesbog Village, an early 1900's company town and farm. 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.

 

An amazing part of NJ, American and food history!

"If you live in NJ and haven't been here, you have to put this place at the top of your list. Loaded with history and activities and a great place to get in a nice walk."
