May 9th was to be our annual Hoe Down which is our largest fundraiser. The SUSHI fundraiser, aimed at raising funds for a teaching greenhouse was also cancelled this past March. Both of these fundraisers, as well as our other routine programs, are vital to our mission as a nonprofit.
Our regular programs interrupted by COVID-19 include our riding programs, teaching programs, admission to the petting zoo, over 30 classtrips scheduled this Spring, numerous birthday parties, and multiple Farm to Table events that were being scheduled for the Spring and Summer. All these are major sources of revenue for our little farm. We are grateful to operate our successful Farmers Market but the market cannot support the farm and our mission in its entirety.
Please consider making a donation to Allaire Community Farm in response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. Donations can be made on our website or mailed to Allaire Community Farm 1923 Baileys Corner Rd, Wall Township, NJ 07719.
