Hear the birds start to sing
Feel the life in the breeze
Watch the ice melt away
The kids are coming out to play
Feel the sun on your skin
Growing strong and warm again
Watch the ground: there's something moving
Something is breaking through
New life is breaking through
Spring is coming, Spring is coming
And all we've been hoping and longing for soon will appear
Spring is coming, Spring is coming
And it won't be long now, it's just about here
Spring Is Coming by Steven Curtis Chapman
Our enthusiasm grows as we prepare to reopen to the public and schedule upcoming events.
During the spring, new animals often join us on the farm reminding us what a wonderful time of year it is. Sweet Melissa will be coming up on her 1st birthday in a few weeks. Apart from the new life that is beginning around us, we are also looking forward to new life breaking through in various ways on the farm.
As March is Disability Awareness Month, we are privileged to be able to offer those with disabilities a new perspective on life when they are on our farm. Our HOPE interns continue to enjoy life, be productive, a learn in a secure environment. Next month POAC Autism Services will be returning for the annual POAC Autism Easter Egg Hunt. POAC families are able to socialize with the animals and one another on this wonderful day.
The excitement of spring is life-giving, and we are happy to share our farm and its resources with others.
You too can be a part of our mission. Sponsoring an animal, purchasing items on our Amazon Wish List, or making a donation are just a few ways to join us and be a part of our mission. Information can be found on our website or the links below. As our petting zoo reopens and our growing season approaches, there are also opportunities for volunteers of all ages.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
* Please note children under 11 years of age who would like to volunteer as a petting zoo guide must volunteer with a parent who can supervise them during their shift. Applications to volunteer are received online.
Even though it was winter, we were still busy working on the infrastructure of our farm.
The footing for the indoor riding arena is currently being finished. Once that it is completed, the outdoor area will be redone and the Dr. Robert H. Harris Equestrian Center will be fully operational.
Additionally, we are also working on getting all our underground utilities installed. Once they are installed, we will be able to begin construction on the Peter and Mary Grandich Learning Resource Center.
Lastly, we will begin to prep the farm for the installation of the ADA accessible "Path to Independence" which has been ordered!
With the understanding that construction takes time, we are pleased with the progress we have made, especially in regards to efficiency, resources, and attention to detail.

A Night of Remembrance
Rami's Heart COVID Memorial
March is a pivotal month. It marks the beginning of the pandemic, the lockdown and unfortunately the first death in New Jersey. A Night of Remembrance, hosted by Rami's Heart Covid-19 Memorial is a marking of the two years since the days that changed our lives forever.
Please join us at Rami's Heart Covid-19 Memorial, located at Allaire Community Farms on Saturday, March 19th, 2022 at 5:30pm for a remembrance ceremony marking the second year of the events that occurred causing the loss of our loved ones.
Last year Rami's Heart Memorial had a lightning of the hearts on Belmar Beach to honor the Healthcare Heroes, Survivors and those lost. This year we are having our 2nd Annual vigil on the evening of March 19th, 2022 at Allaire Community Farm.
Join us as we honor those who passed away and recognize those impacted by the loss. Families are encouraged to bring their loved ones photos to hold.
With a covered pavilion, event will be held rain or shine.
