Monmouth University: "A Green Campus"

6 HOURS AGO  |  RYAN THOMPSON || CONTRIBUTING WRITER
Monmouth University:

Any time you receive an email from a faculty member on campus, you will see on their signature right below the Monmouth University logo, a green leaf. Next to the leaf, it reads, “We are a green campus. Think before you print.”

It’s blasphemous that this “green campus” does not practice what it preaches.

In my junior year at Monmouth, one thing has never changed: our lack of recycling. Sure, you see...

Elton John Says Farewell to Philly

Last ‘Saturday Night’ was ‘Alright for Fighting’ because Elton John brought his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour to Philadelphia on Nov. 9. This was the second time John brought his farewell tour to Philadelphia (he had two consecutive sold out shows on Sept. 11 and 12, 2018) and it attracted back-to-back sellout crowds.

This tour was John’s most technically ambitious one yet. The stage featured a h...

Polling Institute on Presidential Primary

Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the clear front-runner among likely Democratic voters in South Carolina.  The Monmouth University Poll finds little has changed in overall presidential primary support, but there is evidence that black voters’ preference for the front-runner varies significantly when age and education are taken into account.

Biden currently holds 33% support among South ...

Jojo Rabbit Doesn't Have Enough Hop

At some point in our lives, we had imaginary friends. When times got rough where you couldn’t have that happy meal for dinner or weren’t allowed to go over Kevin’s because your room still needed to be spruced up, your imaginary friend was always there. Yeah, you looked crazy talking to a wall in your room by yourself, but they would always listen.

For Jojo, a 10-year-old boy growing up in Nazi Germ...

Terhune Orchards is full of activities for all ages. There is a corn maze which Bryanna Recanzone, junior health studies major, recommended. "I loved the corn maze, I went with my niece over the weekend," Recanzone said. Plus, there is a wine tasting. Terhune has all of their leaf colored bases covered.

Terhune Orchards also includes a pumpkin patch and a mum patch, along with apple and gourd picking. Fresh bags of apple cider donuts are consistently being brought to the smaller stands around and their farm market. The same donuts are available every day, year round for people looking to get the taste of fall even in the summer.

According to the website, "Every week brings bands, wagon rides, food, pony rides and great times at Terhune Orchards."

Although the corn maze may have been one of Recanzone's favorite things to do at Terhune, the day offered something a little more memorable. Recanzone's boyfriend picked Terhune and one of its patches of mums as his spot to propose over the weekend.

"I ran over to the mum patch," Recanzone said. "I picked my mums and then set the pumpkins down next to them to take a picture. He told me to move to the other side to take the picture, and got down on one knee."

On the other side of New Jersey are places like Delicious Orchards and Battle View Orchards. Kayla Horvath, a senior communication major, has been to both but said that she most recently has been to Battle View.

orchard"Battleview Orchards is hands down my favorite place around here for pumpkin picking, apple picking, or other fun fall stuff. They have hayrides and it's all pick your own. They also have this little shop with homemade goods and fresh produce. They have the world's best apple cider donuts."

According to Battleview's website, Battleview has been open since 1908. Battleview offers apple and pumpkin picking until the end of October, and group picking which needs to be scheduled ahead of time. They also offer a senior citizen discount on Monday and Thursday and hayrides throughout the fall season.

Delicious Orchards offers both Apple Fest and Pumpkin Fest, with Apple Fest being in September and Pumpkin Fest coming up on October 13. Pumpkin Fest is free and will include pumpkin painting and decorating, games, an antique tractor display, live music and free food samples, according to the farm's website.

Perhaps the most enticing part of taking a trip to the orchard is the wholesome quality of these items.

There is no doubt that there is just an extra rewarding feeling of choosing from the freshest quality.

Mary Harris, a certified holistic health coach and specialist communication professor, said, "Picking apples (or any fruit) locally is always a better option because the apples have not had to travel far and are still packed with nutrients, whereas non-local apples are picked, stored, and shipped, often sitting in boxes or on shelves for a prolonged period of time."

"The fresher the food, the better. Supporting local farms is a nice thing to do, in general. Small farms especially need support from local consumers to stay in business," she said.

Whether you visit Terhune, Battle View, Delicious Orchards, or any other Jersey orchard for that matter, it's tempting to indulge in the Garden State's perks of fresh ingredients and fruits- especially in the fall.
