EGG HARBOR TOWNSHIP – Like many friends of Reed’s Farm operator Billy Reed, who died unexpectedly Christmas Eve, Matthew Bruckler, who owns and operates Jah’s Creation Organic Farm here, is mourning the loss of his fellow farmer and friend.

“Billy was one of the last farmers remaining in Egg Harbor Township,” said Bruckler. “Almost everyone else sold their land to development about 12 years ago, which is very sad. Many farmers, wholesalers, restaurants, consumers and retailers will be very saddened to learn of his sudden and unexpected departure. I am sure of that, judging by the response that we are seeing on our Facebook page.”
