Jersey was once world-famous for its woollen trade with knitting one of Jersey’s main industries. It was so popular that men had to be banned from knitting in Jersey during the peak fishing season from August to September. Because of the popularity of Jersey wool, knitted jumpers came to be called jerseys, after the island. The first recording of a jumper being called a jersey is in 1837. The rest is history. JERSEY COWS ARE LEGEN-DAIRY. For being outstanding in their field. The pure-bred Jersey cow originated from the island and Jersey cows can now be found as far afield as India, South America, USA, Australia and New Zealand. Jersey cows are famous for their rich and creamy milk, so don’t miss the chance to try some real Jersey dairy-licious Christmas treats while you are on the island! Fancy your own festive dairy tale?
