County launches latest Grown in Monmouth Directory
Equine Directory is now available online

FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders recently announced the launch of the Grown in Monmouth Equine Directory. The Directory will help residents and visitors find horse farms in the County that offer riding lessons, equine therapy, horse boarding and more.

“It’s summer in Monmouth County and the Board of Chosen Freeholders encourages residents and visitors to take advantage of all that the County has to offer,” said Freeholder Director Thomas A. Arnone, liaison to the Division of Economic Development. “People of all ages can enjoy an array of fun equine activities while supporting local, County businesses.”

The Grown in Monmouth Equine Directory is an interactive map that enables users to pinpoint the exact location as well as contact information for a variety of horse farms throughout the County.

“I am delighted that the Grown in Monmouth program has published a directory that encompasses both equine activities and services,” said Freehold Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Board of Agriculture. “As a long-time supporter of the agricultural industry and equine community, I understand the tremendous impact that these businesses have on the County’s economy.”

“On September 21st the Open Space Pace starts with a parade of horses down Main Street in Freehold Borough culminating at the Freehold track,” said Freeholder Burry. “This is where we celebrate the marriage between open space and the horse which is uniquely Monmouth County.”

Grown in Monmouth is a program by the Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders designed to help retain and grow the County’s agricultural industry. For more information about local produce, wineries, breweries, farmers markets, restaurants and more, visit www.GrowninMonmouth.com.
