"By all the “containment” directives issued to date, agriculture and its supportive businesses have been deemed “essential” and are therefore exempt from shut-down. EO 107 specifically mentions “farms” and “farm markets”; since agriculture in most aspects is considered a wholesale not a retail business, it should be exempt; the federal Department of Homeland Security defines agriculture as an “essential industry” (see 11-page March 20 CISA guidance document), which New Jersey adopted in its entirety. EO 107 expressly exempts “engaging in outdoor activity,” thus allowing field work and commercial landscaping. The authority to issue further clarifications on “essential business” is vested with the Superintendent of State Police, to whom Ag Secretary Doug Fisher may appeal if need be." -NJFB
