2014 Award Winner - Moods Farm Market
Ron has explored several retails outlets for his Jersey Grown production. In addition to Square Deal Market, he has operated satellite markets in Egg Harbor Township and at numerous tailgate markets (Atlantic City, Ocean City and others).
Ron is very supportive of the community that has helped his business grow and thrive. He works closely with the local churches in Hammonton. In 2007, he was elected as Vice President and became President in 2009 of the Atlantic County Board of Agriculture. In 2008, in order to promote agriculture in the community, Ron organized a number of farm markets and wineries around Hammonton to host farm tours in conjunction with the Hammonton Chamber of Commerce's Red, White and Blueberry Festival. The event attracted hundreds of participants to learn about Hammonton farming and enjoy the local harvest. Under Ron's leadership, the group of merchants has formed the Hammonton Agritourism Council and hope to make the town a shoppers' destination. They are currently exploring the possibility of tour packages in conjunction with Atlantic City bus trips. For his innovative marketing and leadership, the Ag Society has selected Ron as the recipient of the 2013 Tony Russo Farmers Marketing Award.
