As a result of the COVID-19 Crisis, we had to cancel our annual Hoedown, which is our main fundraiser for the year and was projected to raise $75,000. We also had to cancel three other large scale fundraisers that were being coordinated by supporters of the farm.
In addition to fundraisers, we were forced to cancel major revenue generating farm programs throughout the spring and summer. This has had a dramatic impact on our ability to operate in the black.
We are hoping that this video will stir those who are able to consider donating to the farm. Our immediate goal is to make the farm year round and sustainable by erecting an indoor riding barn and a temperature regulated Learning Resource Center. These buildings will enable the farm to be open year round, regardless of the weather. Once the buildings are in place, riding lessons and farm programs will not be cancelled due to rain, cold, heat or wind.
Continuity in programs will allow the farm to grow in its outreach and thereby increase our ability to meet our financial obligations while also serving our mission populations.
Thanks in advance for your consideration to donate, and we are greatly appreciative of your support. If willing, we also ask that you please share this video so others can learn more about our farm.

Allaire Community Farm Mission
Allaire Community Farm is a sanctuary where passionate people make an impact on their community by creating an encouraging environment that fosters healing and hope. We are an animal rescue with a mission of inclusion. Our goal is to utilize our rescued animals and the working farm environment to nurture through nature: special needs adults and children, at-risk population, veterans with PTSD and families battling cancer. This is accomplished through programs, events, and outreach throughout the year that focus on animal therapy, equine therapy, organic gardening, and vocational training towards purposeful agricultural employment and self-esteem building.
Our gardens and greenhouses support local families battling cancer or who require financial need, along with local food banks.
Fully 100% of all monies generated through farm parties, class trips, donations, etc. go directly to the nonprofit to support our mission.
PLEASE NOTE: For the safety of our animals and visitors, dogs are not permitted on the farm.
