Mullica Hill Asparagus Festival

May 18 @ 11:00 am

The Mullica Hill Asparagus Festival commemorates the first shipment of fresh produce by air in the United States. In 1922, a plane loaded with 1000 pounds of fresh New Jersey asparagus took off from the Iredell farm on Wolfert Station Road in Mullica Hill, it arrived in Boston in time for the Governor of Massachusetts and the mayor of Boston to enjoy asparagus that evening for supper. The feat received national press coverage.
