New Jersey — Birthplace of the American Nudist Colony.

It’s true. Learned it last night when I was eating dinner. My wife heard it on the radio driving home from work. When she told me, I almost hit the floor. Literally.

New Jersey has a nudist colony? No way.

We tried to visualize what this nudist colony might look like. Who would be there. What they were doing. I could just imagine people leaving their office parks in Basking Ridge and heading over to Sky Farm for a quick streak.

“Hey John, you headed home?”
“No. Gonna hit a few balls at the driving range.”
“What about you? You going to your son’s baseball game?”
“No, I’m headed over to Sky Farm.”
“Ok. See you tomorrow.”

Well, I’m happy to say that it’s true. That New Jersey is the American birthplace of the nudest colony. In fact, Sky Farm has been promoting nudism since 1932.

So move over California, Arizona and New Mexico — Nude Jersey is in the house.

This is just one of many great reasons to move to New Jersey.

Actually the name is Sky Farm. We are holding an Open House June 21st

Sky Farm Nudist Club to Hold “Dare to be Bare for Breast Health” Open House

Sky Farm, located in scenic Basking Ridge NJ, is holding an Open House on June 21, 2008 to raise money and awareness for the Avon Foundation for Breast Cancer. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade has raised and awarded more than $450,000,000 worldwide to make a significant and lasting difference in five critical areas: awareness and education; screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research, all with a focus on the medically underserved.
Sky Farm and its members are sponsoring a local woman Sherri Lynn of Manville as she continues her quest to participate in all 9 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer cities. Sherri has completed the New York walk 4 times, as well as Boston and Washington, DC once each. This year she is headed to Chicago. Since Sherri’s diagnosis nearly 13 years ago, she has been raising money and awareness by telling her story and has helped many people through their diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Sky Farm is proud to partner with a person like Sherri who selflessly gives back so much of her time and energy to achieve her fund raising goals and continue the fight against Breast Cancer.

Admission to the open house is limited and by reservation only. There is a $20.00 entry fee per person, half of which will be donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. Visit our website at and click on the Open House button for the reservation information. You can also call in your reservation by phoning 908-419-5443.

There will a BBQ lunch and live music poolside with door prizes to be given away! Play a sociable game of Petanque, Miniten, or Shuffleboard with your friends and meet some of the members to find out why they love Sky Farm so much!

Sky Farm is open 365 days a year. Besides enjoying the facilities during the warm weather, many members come out during the winter months to walk around the property, use the sauna and enjoy the tranquility that our setting provides.

Sky Farm is a member of the American Association for Nude Recreation (AANR). AANR is the oldest and largest organization promoting nude recreation in North America with nearly 50,000 individual members and 267 affiliated clubs. For more information on nude recreation call 1-800-TRY-NUDE or visit the AANR website at Come and experience Sky Farm for yourself on June 21st from 10:00 till 4:00 (rain date June 22nd)

Spend a stress-free day in the sun enjoying the refreshing pool, hot tub, and sauna while helping to raise money and awareness for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Remember, “Happiness is no tan lines.”
