While New Jersey's Jon Stewart was taking on the comedy and political world on The Daily Show, his wife Tracey was writing best-selling books and fighting for animal rights, and building a safe place for them.

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

'Hockhockson Farm' includes two 2-bedroom cottages, pool, pond, and equine facility with an arena for showing. The property also boasts six barns,16 stalls, five pastures, five paddocks, a five-car garage, and a farm stand area.

The main house is bright and airy with large windows. The Grand Foyer has a beautiful sweeping staircase and is the focal point of the house.

Originally built in the late 1770s, the 45-acre property sold for about $4 million.

Jon and Tracey Stewart run the Hockhockson Farm Foundation. Their mission is to unite community leaders and other like-minded organizations to better serve communities in need. Together they facilitate interest and access to healthy, sustainable, and kind food options. Their programs provide educational outreach that supports whole food plant-based nutrition, food justice initiatives, and the prevention of cruelty to animals. The foundation’s programming and events provide opportunities to give back and spotlight leading-edge advances in health, nutrition, and food systems.

The Stewarts are very active in the community and give back all the time. Jon and Tracey are big supporters of the Count Basie Center for the Arts and Lunch Break, a non-profit that provides food, clothing, life skills, and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County and beyond.

Take a look at where all of the magic happens.
