Phantom Brook Farm
Phantom Brook Farm is an exclusive equine full care residential boarding, assisted veterinary care, and retirement facility located in the rolling hills of northwest New Jersey. The farm's family owned business spans over 50 years and continues to evolve and expand to meet the needs of today's horse enthusiast and professional.

At Phantom Brook Farm, we strongly believe in quality care. Each horse is cared for as an individual and treated as though one of our own. We have remained a small facility so as to assure continuance of that personalized care we have become so famous for. We are owner operated, live on the site and care for each horse ourselves. Our attention to detail as well as the TLC given to each horse sets Phantom Brook Farm far apart from the rest.

Beginning as a boarding and training facility, the farm has expanded to include retirement and most recently in 2005, an assisted care facility. Knowing our reputation and Marilyn's experience as a veterinary nurse/technician, several veterinarians suggested we offer specialized care for injured or post surgical horses since many horse owners are unable to do so. To answer the need, the assisted care facility was constructed and is now operating with referrals from both New Jersey and out-of state veterinarians.
