Hi Roxy,

I was browsing your site (it is terrific!) and wanted to let you know that we are hosting a fall festival and benefit with a horse and farm life theme on October 17th from 1 to 4pm at Center Line Farm in Tewksbury, NJ.

The festival will benefit two very worthy local organizations. The first is Animeals which helps seniors on the Meals on Wheels program to maintain their pets at home by providing food and litter to them. They found that the seniors were feeding their pets before feeding themselves with the Meals on Wheels provisions. The second beneficiary is a small handicapped riding program: Freedom Horse, based in Long Valley, New Jersey, which is dedicated to Hippotherapy.  Freedom Horse also provides horse rescue and rehabilitation.

The day’s activities will include pony rides for the kids, adult trail rides on Clysdale horses, a tractor pull hay ride, a bouncey-bounce, armchair massages, pumpkin and face painting, a walk about petting “zoo” of miniature farm animals, music and food as well as five demonstrations. Enjoy Center Line Farm’s own precision drill team riding to music, and watch a roping demonstration, a lady farrier (blacksmith who puts shoes on horses), a horse chiropractor adjusting a horse, and a dog agility demo run through their paces.

The kids are invited to come in costume and participate in a Halloween parade with or without their dog. Prizes will be awarded in four categories.

Parking is $10 and the demos are free. Chits can be purchased for all of the activities. Food will be available for purchase as well. Come out and enjoy the horse and farm activities and help our two worthy causes. If you would like to bring a bag of dog or cat food or kitty litter for our needy canine and feline friends, that would be greatly appreciated. There is something for everyone and is guaranteed to be fun for the entire family

Center Line farm is located on Route 517 in Tewksbury, just one half mile north of the Fairmount light or three miles south of the center of Long Valley.Visit Center Line farm’s website ( for more information or call (908) 832-9448.


Dear Marilyn,

While I have not yet established a Roxy’s Best Of… Hunterdon County or Tewksbury site, I’m happy to include your event as part of Roxy’s Best Of… Chester, NJ.

Sounds like great fun for a couple of great causes.
