We started with a single grill and a buffalo farm walking tour. Over these 20 years, we grew the Buffalo Watch to a local destination! With positive support from our neighbors and friends, the Buffalo Watch now features live bands, a field and barns of crafters, a food court, activities for kids, a hometown saloon and a great daytime experience. The original hay wagon ride, farm tours, buffalo herds and grilled buffalo burgers remain. All at reasonable cost with all proceeds benefiting our local Whitehouse Rescue Squad.

 On Saturday, May 19, stop by at the Readington River Buffalo Farm; an historic, maintained working farm preserve. The Buffalo Farm will be hosting a Fundraiser for the Whitehouse Rescue Squad.

We have an outstanding line-up of family fun activities and some great attractions for the adults too.   You’ll have the rare opportunity to get a close-up and personal view of bison and their newborn calves. Our tour guides will give you an education on the wagon trail and provide fun facts about these magnificent animals and the incredible 300+ acre farm they call home.

For a $5 on-site parking donation, that goes directly to the Whitehouse Rescue Squad, your day will include farm tours, live bands, civil war reenactment camps, WWII army equipment, blacksmith demonstration, live wild west cowboy shows, native American Indian, wolf preservation animal and much more. In addition, there will be a good selection of crafters, collectors, memorabilia and antique vendors if you’re looking for that something special to wear, display or cherish as a keepsake.

The children love the pony rides, face painters and hay wagon tour rides. If its’ the food you’re looking for don’t forget to stop for Italian Ices, Soda, BBQ, Pizza, Burgers, hot dogs, popcorn, or pastries. The farm owners are again grilling buffalo burgers.

This year we are introducing a handful of food truck vendors that are well known and part of the NJ food truck Association.   That should pair well with a cold glass of beer or wine from the “Red River Saloon”.   The Saloon is for those 21 and over. This custom designed bar captures the spirit of a 1800 gunslinger saloon and we have a special day permit authorized by the State of NJ, Division of ABC. Permit #57992

We anticipate 8-10,000 attendees at this one-day family event. All proceeds go to the Whitehouse First Aid and Rescue Squad. Proudly serving all of Readington Township. Follow us on Facebook for updates https://www.facebook.com/events/157557961620502/

If you are a vendor, we welcome antiquers, enthusiasts, collectors, weekenders, modelers, memorabilia and artifact hunters. Don’t miss out on this family fun event to showcase/sell your products. Registration forms and information to reserve outdoor and in-barn spaces can be found at http://whitehouserescue.com/buffalowatch/

Guests are advised to wear sturdy shoes and to bring binoculars. The Buffalo Watch will be held rain or shine. Since this is a working farm with many animals, please do not bring your pets, Service Animals only are permitted. Thank you for your understanding.

FYI: Although the farm is in Readington Township, the actual address for Google Maps/Garmin is

937 County Road 523, Flemington, New Jersey 08822
