It’s the Blueberry Capital of the World and SO MUCH MORE! The nickname piques your interest, but our town is more than that. Great schools, great people, a great place to live and work. Close to the “big cities” - Philadelphia, Atlantic City and New York, but not far from campgrounds, lakes and beaches. Did we mention a positive business atmosphere and a community committed to intelligent growth? That’s our town –that’s Hammonton.
