Celery Farm Update!

This past weekend I took a stroll back to Allendale’s Celery Farm to check out some summer wildlife happenings. I’ve heard that summertime is traditionally slow for viewing wildlife. That may be true, but it was not the case with the Celery Farm which was teeming with wildlife as these photos below show.


There were tons of bullfrogs!

Exploring Allendale’s Celery Farm!


The Celery Farm in Allendale NJ was a working celery farm but is now a 107 acre freshwater wetland preserve and a beautiful wildlife sanctuary.

There are trails including one that goes around Lake Appert which is the main water body in the preserve.

Even birds like to take the whole family for a stroll on the relaxing trails here.

There are two other bodies of water included here such as Phair’s Pond and Blue Heron Pond.  Allendale Brook flows to the east of the preserve.

It’s a great place to relax and take a stroll or even a jog.
