What Bert Has To Say About Vineland-Bridgeton Metro Area

Cumberland County, in the southerly tidewater area of the state, has a mainly rural character with the towns of Vineland and Millville serving as its center. While the area is somewhat economically tied to Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware, to the north and northwest, it’s primarily self-sufficient and most people work locally. Glassmaking is the primary industry, along with agriculture.
