Getting to Know Richland, NJ

The personal injury lawyers in Richland, NJ, at Garden State Justice Group present the following highlights of the neighborhood and all it offers its residents.


Three railroads served the greater area at one time, the Pennsylvania Railroad, the Reading Company, and the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines. The Richland Train Station was a stop for two of these. Although local passenger service stopped in 1935, the Cape May Seashore Lines offers rail service from the neighborhood to Tuckahoe. In the mid-1960s, the original station was taken down, but the current station is located at the same location, and the original concrete bridge can still be seen just north of the station. 

The unincorporated community of Richland is located in Buena Vista Township in western Atlantic County, New Jersey. The community falls under the ZIP code 08350. The neighboring towns include Buena, Cumberland, Hamilton, Mays Landing, Estell Manor, and Five Points. Harding Highway travels across the neighborhood in addition to Old Landis Avenue, Mizpah Road, and Millville Avenue. 


The Dalponte Farm, located on Llewellyn Avenue, was established in 1993. The farm specializes in the following:

  • mint
  • basil
  • cilantro
  • dill
  • collard greens
  • kale

In 2004, the community took on the name of Mojito for two weeks to honor the Cuban rum drink. The family-owned and operated farm is a major supplier of mint on the East Coast, which is one of the drink's main ingredients. The rum producer, Bacardi, even offered $5,000 to fund any recreational festivities that commemorated the event, including a sign that was placed on Harding Highway, also known as U.S. Route 40. 


The community is home to the Lazy Eye Distillery, located on Harding Avenue. The vodka distillery opened its doors in 2014, but distilling had been in the family for generations. They have won many awards, including the state's distillery of the year in both 2016 and 2017.
