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 with nature special needs and at-risk populations, along with their families. 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 community gardens and greenhouses support local families battling cancer or who require financial need, along with local food banks.
The farm is a sanctuary for ALL providing nurture with nature. Fully 100% of all monies generated through pony parties, class trips, donations, riding lessons, etc. go directly to the nonprofit to support our mission.

Live Updates from the Farm!
Find Life on the Farm
In the hustle and bustle of today’s high pressure world, there are very few places where people can go to escape and enjoy nature and animals in a tranquil environment. The vision for Allaire Community Farm is to create a sanctuary where individuals can go to get away from the rat race of New Jersey and enjoy nature, rescued animals, healthy produce and interaction with other members of their local community. We also desire to give back to the community by providing a caring environment for children with special needs and at risk teens by utilizing our rescued animals to break down barriers. The petting zoo is open to the public on specific days, as it is weather and volunteer dependent. There is a $3 entry fee per person. Please visit our Facebook page here to learn about our open hours at the petting zoo.

Pony & Farm Parties
