Want to do something special with your family? Something the kids will always remember? Bring them to "HISTORIC WHITEBRIAR". for a 1 hour tour of the farm. Plenty of free parking at our "Organic Green Cafe where the tour will begin, located at 1101 Cooper St, (in the Old Fleet Bank Building) behind the Beverly National Cemetery, in Edgewater Park, N.J. 08010
No matter how many are in your immediate family, the hour tour is $25, (additional guests $5) and you will be meeting:
(1) a herd of 8 goats that were rescued from "the bar b que pit", where they were going to be eaten.Some of the foreign cultures coming to this land have goat o the menu. 4 siblings were rescued by a woman, who donated them here at the farm, where they will live out their life in comfort, until they die of natural causes of old age.
(2) a Zoni. which is an attempt for the American Horse industry to bring strength back in to the Horse Industry, since they have been inbreeding since they first came on this continent 300 years ago. The recessive genes are now becoming "dominate" making thinner bone structure, and disease a problem. Breeding back to the scientific category, widens the genetic pool allowing for more strenth in the species
(3) Assorted Hens, drakes, ganders, in many sizes and colors. will greet you with resounding honks, quacks, and clucks. If they are in season, you can get the eggs and see how warm they are having just been laid in the nest.
(4) The history of each animal species will be shared with you and your children, on a level that they will understand. I am a retired educator, and love teaching children about the "Parenting skills" they will use later in life by sharing an animal. Hands on touching of each can be arranged if you bring "wipes", after they are finished handling the animsls.
