Together, the two built a farm at 228 Route 537 East in Colts Neck and they grow crops as well as care for rescued farm animals, including cows, sheep, goats, pigs, and chickens, according to New Jersey Advanced Media.

The property sold for $4 million sits on 45 acres. Originally from the late 1770s, the home boasts five bedrooms and six baths. The rest of the land features two separate cottages, a pond and equine facility with an arena, six barns, 16 stalls, five pastures, and crop and farm stand area.
