This One New Jersey Farm Rescues More Than Animals
Over the weekend we were driving around the Shore area finding something to do, something new to explore.
We stumbled on this little farm in Wall Township.
It was a location we have been hearing about for a while but never really checked out until we literally drove past it.
It was something, with our two girls, we wanted to check out, because, hey, who doesn't love a petting zoo?
Its mission is very unique. Its mission is to not only help the animals that they rescue but to help people through the community it serves.
It’s an organization that does good, twice.
Now, this farm isn’t just a farm. It’s a giant petting zoo, an exploration area for the little ones, and a place for birthday parties.
One thing that did shock us, was the surprise the lady behind the counter had when we arrived, along with the few other families in front of us.
She asked us how we found out about them. My wife said that we wanted to visit because of their Christmas Tree display but could never go because it was sold out. The lady then expressed, “we don’t how the word is getting out, but it has been very busy today.”
After seeing what their mission was firsthand, this was really great to hear that there were new people discovering this great organization.
This great location, I’ve been talking about, is the Allaire Community Farm.
