MILLVILLE, N.J. — The County Fair brought people and families out to enjoy local businesses and their products. Margie Pierce of Fans of Feed Me, developed Sweet Tea and Lemonade in a mason jar called an Arnold Palmer, and she loves serving it to the people.

The Cumberland County Fair brought people and families out to enjoy local businesses and their products. It’s What’s Good in South Jersey — with Isaiah Showell.

“When It comes to sweet tea and lemonade people want it in a mason jar,” said Pierce. “We have a special half-and-half a lot of people call it the Arnold Palmer. It’s our special blend. People have to come out and see that unless you mix, it stays separate.”

Big John’s Pizza Queen were in attendance serving the people with pizza going back and forth taking orders. Among the workers was Dave Garcia.

“I’m proud to serve the people of Cumberland County with this pizza because I consider it one of the best in South Jersey,” said Garcia.

Bee Cool Pollination was also in attendance giving out pure and infused honey to South Jersey. The team consisted of Saranna Elkner and her daughter Jennifer Farrell who were ready to provide the people with samples.

“My husband has been keeping bees for forty years,” said Elkner. “We wound up with a lot of honey and had to figure out what to do with it, so we started selling the honey. We’re looking to do this into retirement.”

The day wrapped up with a derby show where families could scream in excitement as drivers of twisted up exterior cars made more cars twisted. The people loved every minute of it. The County Fair was definitely What’s Good in South Jersey!
