Whitesbog is the birthplace of the Blueberry...
This documentary film will aid in education and awareness of the history of Whitesbog,
and show the beauty of this magical place deep in the heart of the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.
The Village is an early 20th-century company town & agricultural community open 365 Days A Year from Sunrise to Sunset for trail walking, running, horse-back riding, biking, driving & exploring. In the early 1900s, Whitesbog was the largest cranberry farm in NJ & its founder, Joseph J. White, was a nationally recognized leader in the cranberry industry. Whitesbog is also where the highbush blueberry was first successfully cultivated by Elizabeth Coleman White & Frederick Coville 100 years ago. Today, Whitesbog includes the village of restored cottages, farm buildings, gardens & the surrounding 3,000 acres of cranberry bogs, blueberry fields, reservoirs, sugar sand roads, & Pine Barrens forests. The General Store is open weekends & offers fruit preserves, chocolates, candies, snacks, drinks & hand-made crafts. The Village hosts living history tours, wagon rides, gallery shows, museum tours, bird walks, moonlight walks, botanical hikes, craft fairs & the annual Whitesbog Blueberry Festival in late June.
