Colts Neck

In Colts Neck, white split-rail fences frame rolling pastures, exclusive golf courses, and stunning estates. Dozens of farms welcome customers with roadside stands, country markets, pick-your-own orchards, and festivities to celebrate the fall harvest. The apple was the region’s original prized crop. In 1698, the Laird family began producing Applejack, a spirit served at the local inn (still in business since 1717) and enjoyed by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. By 1790, Colt’s Neck was home to America’s first commercial distillery. Also dating back to the 1700s is Colts Neck’s history of horse breeding. Aptly named in 1962, today’s Colts Neck offers the total equestrian experience – an extensive network of public bridal paths, regulation-size polo field, trail riders club, stables, riding academies, and a bounty of properties fit for horse owners. This pastoral paradise, located only 60 miles from Midtown Manhattan and less than 15 miles from the shore, has gained in popularity and visibility in recent decades. In 2013, Colts Neck was listed in CNN Money’s “25 Top-Earning Towns” and CBS Money Watch’s “Top 10 Most Attractive School Districts” in the United States. The town has strict residential- and business-zoning regulations in place to prevent suburban sprawl, and the Municipal Farmland and Open Space Committee is active in preserving the expansive surroundings and agrarian history.
