BJ’s Wholesale Club likes to support the small farms that make it their goal to grow and sell quality local produce for their communities.
That’s why BJ’s is once again partnering with the Macrie Brothers Farm located in Hammonton, New Jersey, known as the “Blueberry Capital of the World.” For more than 60 years, the Macrie family has been growing some of the finest blueberries.
Watch how their commitment of working together as a family results in the most delicious and freshest blueberries for BJ's Wholesale Club members year after year.
The United States has a diverse climate and the ability to grow all kinds of crops throughout the country. And while farmers in most of the United States grow a lot of corn, soybeans, wheat and cotton (these crops, called “commodity” or “row” crops, account for almost 240 million acres of the 325 million acres planted to crops), farmers also grow a wide range of fruits and vegetables, from apples to lettuce to pumpkins, and everything in between.
