I know this is a random and dumb question, but are they referring to "New Jersey" as in the state.

New Jersey as a state is usually referred to as "New Jersey".
You could hear "North Jersey" or "South Jersey" to describe portions of the state, but you won't hear "North New Jersey" or "South New Jersey".
You could also hear "Jersey City" for Jersey City, New Jersey, but you wouldn't call it "Jersey".

What is this place they are referring to?

Well, why do you think they call it "New" Jersey? Probably because there was already a Jersey in the old country and the first settlers, being a little homesick put a New in front of the name to remind them of home. It doesn't take a huge leap to see this since it's a UK site where the article is located. For a little information about the first Jersey, you might want to take a peek at this site , it would give you a chance to brush up on your geography too.

It's like saying Americans are only from the US whereas anyone who lives in North or South America is an American just like anyone from Africa is an African.

Where do they get those cows and the fabric?

Is it such a new thing to hear about some island off the coast of England that's named Jersey? I remember we went through this with someone from New Jersey.
