New Jersey Swine – Bringing Home the Bacon – All ages
New Jersey pigs, or swine as they were called, were much sought after in colonial and early America for their lard and meat, and our state was known to have the biggest and best pigs. Find out more about Burlington Ham, also known as Newbold Ham — a little-known and forgotten delicacy — as presenter Judith Russo explains why New Jersey swine was so special. $5/person; $4/MEC members
