10 Epic New Jersey Bakeries You Need to Visit

Epic is a word that seems to get people's attention these days. Bakery is a word that gets mine. So I thought I'd put the two together to bring you a post about some of the best, most epic bakeries in New Jersey. Now, I know this is New Jersey, so that means we have a ton of amazing bakeries out there. This is just a small sampling of what our state has to offer. If you want to tell me about your favorite in the comments, please do!!

Let's Visit The Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ

We love, love LOVE  taking mini day trips around here, especially ones that don't cost us much (or anything at all).  One of our favorite places to visit (which is often overlooked, in my opinion) is The Raptor Trust in Millington, NJ.  It is no secret that I am a certified 'bird nerd.'  I can tell you what kind of bird is nearby just from hearing its song (who knew, right?).  I keep binoculars on my kitchen table in case a bird watching moment appears.  I have a hummingbird feeder and I actually cook the nectar myself (well, it's just sugar and water, but I cook it with love!).  I could go on and on, but I don't want you to start getting frightened about how weird I am.  Anyway...
