Now in their fourth decade, Allegra Farm is the largest authentic “livery stable” in Connecticut and is also home to the Horse Drawn Carriage and Sleigh Museum of New England. John Allegra and Allegra Farm are keeping the Victorian Era alive with the restoration of vintage horse drawn carriages, wagons and equipment. Located on beautiful Lake Hayward, Allegra offers scenic carriage rides, sleigh rides and hayrides. In addition, they will travel the New England and Tri-State area for weddings, funerals, anniversaries, parades and other special occasions. Virtually every carriage has a history of transported famous actors and persons in movie and television productions. John Allegra himself, is often at the reins, appearing in “The Greatest Showman”, “Amistad” and “Kate and Leopold”, among many others and is now in production with “Dickensen” and “Little Women.” Allegra Farm relied on seCTer’s Loan Programs to help achieve its success.
