But the Garden State Preservation Trust is out of money, and the state legislature has until the end of June to put funding it on the November ballot. Gary Mount, the owner of Terhune Orchards, and Peter Furey, the executive director of the New Jersey Farm Bureau, talk about why farmland is critical to New Jersey's economy.
