Our area of Burlington County has its roots in agriculture and Medford offers a wealth of agri-tourism opportunities within the township and nearby. From modern-day pick-your-own and organic produce farms, to alpaca and Clydesdale horse establishments, horticulture cooperatives, and wineries, there is much to experience in all seasons.
Medford was the only town in New Jersey to be included in the National Geographic’s Guide to Small Town Escapes and its easy to see why we have distinguished ourselves as one of the premiere suburbs in the Philadelphia region. Perhaps National Geographic summed it up best: “Medford…. Pine garlands and twinkling white lights provide a Victorian touch to tiny Medford in early December, when the whole township crowds Main Street for the annual Dickens celebration. A cool, northerly wind sends aloft the sweet aroma of steaming apple cider and cinnamon, as bundled-up revelers, carolers, characters from a Christmas Carol, and musicians alike greet familiar faces, of which there are many. For that’s the kind of place Medford is; a friendly tight knit community where everyone knows everyone
