Welcome to Bayonet Farm! Bayonet Farm is a one-of-a-kind property owned by Holmdel Township. The unspoiled 240 acres feature farmland, historic buildings, and barns acquired by Holmdel Township in 1985 through purchase with Green Acres funding assistance and partial donation by the late long-time resident, Laura Harding and her sister Catherine Harding Tailer.
Visit Bayonet Farm and you will experience the joys of being taken back in time to simpler days. The views on the farm are breathtaking. There are trails to explore and many places to stop and enjoy as you take in unspoiled views of open fields and meadows. Animals and plant life are abundant. The historic buildings make great subjects for the local artist or photographer. And there are yearly festivals and events which enrich the entire Holmdel community. This is a taste of Holmdel as it was in its early years, which is being actively preserved for us to enjoy today.
Bayonet Farm makes a unique setting for your next party!
Open fields and serene pastures make for a great venue for your next picnic, reunion, or tent affairs.
The Gray Barn accommodates both formal and informal parties and events.
The Red Barn boasts a large open rustic space on the upper level and/or smaller room on the lower level.
Bayonet Farm is a public park which is open from dawn to dusk. The two barns on the farm are available for wedding, party or event rentals (evening rentals are possible subject to separate review and approval). To use the park after dusk you will need to submit a request for a variance with a lighting plan (i.e. solar lights along path from parking to event area for safety). Rental must end by 11PM to ensure clean up by midnight
