7 Hickories Farm Inc. is a unique equine rescue facility dedicated to taking in horses whose owners have died or become incapacitated. It is a wonderful place where a group of dedicated folks have opened up their hearts and home to rescuing horses. On November 25 – 27, from 10 AM to 4 PM, 7 Hickories will be hosting an Open House and Fundraiser at 460 Hope Johnsonburg Rd, Hope (Route 519).

The rescue invites those interested in learning about what they do and how they can help these beautiful animals to come and learn about their mission.

There will be Holiday décor and gifts available for humans and their horses alike. Visitors are encouraged to stop by and do a little bit shopping. Guests can enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and say hello to Rebel, the ‘spokespony’ for the rescue. All purchases go directly to the care and expenses of the horses that are rescued and living on the farm.

The Rescue was started out of the desire of the founders to do more. This mission was created out of a way to give back. The nonprofit was formed to help and rescue horses due to the death or incapacity of their owners. 7 Hickories is located at 460 Hope Johnsonburg Rd, Hope NJ (Route 519).

Be sure to learn more about this mission and keep up to date with what is going on at the Farm at If unable to attend this event, but you would like to still sponsor these beautiful animals, you can visit the Facebook site and message the founders.

Donations of money and goods that can be used on the rescue or to sell to fund their needs are always accepted. Volunteers are encouraged to sign up and offer their skills and talents. There is always work to do and horses to brush. For those that want to help in a very easy and passive way, there is yet a very simple thing to do. Amazon shoppers are encouraged to sign up for Amazon Smile. Simply go to and select 7 Hickories as your Charity of choice. Amazon donates .5% of your purchase to 7 Hickories.

The best way to help and enjoy these beautiful creatures is to show up and see the work in action. You will learn more about this Rescue and see where you may just fit in to it. This weekend’s Open House event is a lovely addition to your holiday shopping, all while helping a good cause. No horsing around, this is sure to be a very beautifully sweet event that will warm the heart
