“We have our fall harvest festival, and that’s where you can come, you can get your pumpkin, you can get your corn stalk, your bale of hay, apple cider donuts, a horse ride. cart, a barrel train – it’s a beautiful time to be on the farm, the leaves are changing and it’s scenic,” Burney told Townsquare Media. “This will continue until November 20. We are open six days a week to the public, Tuesday through Saturday 10am-4pm and Sunday 12pm-4pm.”

It’s become such a popular place that right now all birthday parties and class trips for the rest of the 2022 season are booked.

“Everyone wants to be on the farm this time of year,” Burney said.

“One of our volunteers, Dawn Mazzarella, is a ‘Halloween freak’ and she decorated the whole farm with gusto,” Burney said. “So if you want to come and see some tastefully made Halloween decorations that aren’t going to scare your kids to death – just a little scary – but nothing that’s going to make the kids run around and scream and cry – – definitely out, she ( Dawn) spent weeks and weeks and weeks doing this and it’s totally worth it, she did an amazing job. She loves decorating for Halloween and she went overboard this year and did an amazing job.”

Following the Fall Harvest Festival at Allaire Community Farm in Wall Township this fall, comes the 2nd Annual Christmas Pageant which will be bigger and better this year as fantastic as it was in 2021.

“We’re so excited about this year – last year was our first year (doing this), we weren’t quite sure – but the feedback has been great and people have loved it,” Burney said. . “The only thing missing was that we felt like we didn’t have enough for our Jewish friends who faithfully visit the farm, so this year we’re happy to announce that in addition to the lit menorah and the Star of David we had last year, we’re adding a 30ft lighted and rotating raddle and we’re aiming for the Guinness Book of World Records, hopefully we’ll break that record.

There are other exciting additions that you can also come and check out.

“We’re also adding a nativity scene. It’s a living nativity scene in that our animals are going to be there but the people in the living nativity scene, because we don’t want to stress our animals, it’s nighttime and that’s enough long, so we have life-size nativity scenes — they’ll be on a lighted platform, the animals will be below them in their natural habitat,” Burney said. “It always brings that reminder of what it’s like. Christmas (The Nativity and the Birth of Christ).”

There will also be other Christmas spirit decorations.

“We’ve ordered another 40 foot explosions which are going to be huge, we have a reindeer show flying through the air which I think is 45 feet so it’s going to be huge,” Burney said.

The Christmas wagon ride will be back from last year.

“As you enter the farm, you are going to hear Christmas music, there will be a fire pit outside where you can warm your hands, you go inside to have hot chocolate, apple cider, apple cider donuts, those necklaces for the kids that light up and some funky glasses, so you step out into what we call the bullpen and we’ve got old school Christmas movies playing – all of these will play while you wait to board one of the four rides we have which are all decorated, playing Christmas music.You get on the wagon ride and then you enter a country winter wonderland, it’s magic.
