UPDATE: We are now a 501c3 NON PROFIT ! <3
Hi my name is Christy Sami; I am the owner of BEAUtiful Farm located in Rockaway Twp. NJ! My husband Brian and I bought our historic stone farmhouse and the 10.5 acres it resides on back to life in 2019 & 2020. Our farm is over 90 years old and has been farm assessed until 2018 when it was lost due to the unfortunate sale and foreclosure of the previous owners.
We have FOUGHT and Won our "Right to Farm" thanks to you and our amazing supporters! We thank you all for your kind words, support, your power to show up and your kindness! We will be home January 1 2024 and are working tirelessly to make the farm welcome for you and your loved ones!
BEAUtiful Farm is NOW officially a 501c3 Non-Profit Charity Organization! This will be our home base for funding! All of our donations are now tax-exempt !
Here at BEAUtiful Farm, we are incredibly inclusive and we welcome people of all ages, colors, genders, sexual orientations, etc. We teach animal husbandry with horses, Hamlet the pig, Wendy the cow, the chickens, the pups, etc!
BEAUtiful Farm offers farm camps, where the kids are immersed in nature around the farm. They learn about the flora and fauna, as well as native species and how to protect them and their habitat. We are a no-technology zone, when you are here, you are here; the kids don't even miss it!
We offer riding lessons as well; lead line, and longe line through advanced riding lessons to students at the farm who are not only looking to improve their riding, but their knowledge of horsemanship. All of our students are responsible for their own horse, even as young as 3 years old, they groom, help tack up, and successfully turn out their horse for a ride! It builds confidence, and skill, teaches empathy, and much more as well as gives the horses and students something to look forward to daily.
Our goal is to:
*Raise money and resources to plant an orchard and wildflower garden for our honey bees. They will make honey for us to sell to fund Xanthus Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation.
*We want to cover our outdoor arena with solar so we can ride, teach and offer programs under a roof and be energy efficient!
*Fix the roof on our hay loft so there are no leaks in our horse's hay
*Put up an additional barn or run-in shed for the horses to be safe from the elements
*Create sensory pathways for people with all abilities and neurodiversity
*Create a Therapeutic riding program at our farm.
*AND MANY MORE THINGS!
Thank you for your time and consideration ❤️ We hope to see you soon!
