The program deals with earlier 18th and 19th century Jewish farming development leading to the 20th century when commercial-scale poultry farming became the most important form of agriculture engaged in by the state’s Jewish farmers. The largest concentration of Jewish poultry farms in Monmouth County developed in the Farmingdale/Howell area, producing a rich community as well as an agricultural life.
