Each year since 1980, RHA has offered its members and friends the opportunity to enjoy a fun fall day of activities and experiences unique to country living. The event is sponsored by our Board of Trustees and the Peapack Gladstone Bank.
For children, there are hayrides, a wagon pulled by Clydesdales, a field maze, scarecrows to dress, face painting, farm animals to pet, and many other activities. Demonstrations for all ages include sheep herding and beekeeping. In addition, the Tewksbury Foot Bassets and Essex Fox Hounds pay a visit. Bluegrass, rock, & old time music entertains everyone throughout the day. Lunch and snacks are available for purchase and several small boutiques offer items for sale. To add to the fun, there is a silent auction offering treasures for people of all ages and a 50/50 raffle.
Members of RHA will receive an invitation in September along with an extra invitation to share with family, neighbors or friends. Area residents who are not currently members are encouraged to join the fun, taking advantage of a discounted membership offered at the event. Family memberships are $50 per year, but we offer them at half-price for any first-time member who joins while they are at the fair. Membership is very important to RHA – each year it supports our stream monitoring and well test programs; the effective management of the lands we’ve preserved; our work with citizen groups, local governments and New Jersey’s lawmakers; and the educational programs that help children and families learn how to protect natural resources and steward the beautiful countryside we all love. The bulk of our funding comes from the tax-deductible contributions made by people who support our mission by making a yearly membership investment.
Admission to the Old Fashioned Country Fair is $20 per vehicle. All activities and demonstrations are free. Carpooling is recommended – since Fairview Farm is a wildlife preserve, parking is limited.
