Wines and other products
Peppadews, the fruit for which the winery was named, were first planted in 2008. In 2012, Peppadew Fresh received a $260,000 grant from the United States Department of Agriculture to expand production and distribution.
It was the only farm in the United States that cultivated peppadews, a pepper cultivar discovered in South Africa in 1996. Peppadew Fresh was not located in one of New Jersey's three viticultural areas.[page needed]
