"The Middle Colonies" was the name given to the middle region of the Thirteen Colonies of the British Empire in America - that's the area now known as the states of New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York.

They had really rich soil, so growing food was easy for the people who lived there.

What Did They Grow In The Middle Colonies?
  • Wheat (which they used to make bread)
  • Corn (used to make cornbread)
  • Apples (used to make cider)
  • Rye
  • Potatoes
  • Squashes
  • Eggplants
The colonists also kept chickens for eggs, and cows and goats for milk – they’d have killed them for meat, too. Fish was also available to those who lived by the river.

Hope this helps you!

Apple pie was used throughout the year, and corn-meals were cooked into a mush or cake and eaten every day. Also meat!
