......AND WISHES TO CONTINUE TO PROVIDE FOR THE COMMUNITY
Our vision is to create a sanctuary where families and members of the community could gather and enjoy our picturesque 22.5 acre farm in Wall Township. It is our hope that the farm will serve as a safe and peaceful place where people could go to get away from the rat race of New Jersey and to enjoy nature, rescued animals, healthy produce, and interaction with other members of their local community.
We also desire to give back to the community in any way that we can by providing a caring environment for children with special needs and at risk young people who need encouragement. We offer free or low cost organic produce to families in need or those with cancer whose immune systems could use a boost.
