COLTS NECK - Monmouth County officials are discussing a plan that would allow former “Daily Show” host and Lawrenceville native Jon Stewart to open another animal sanctuary in New Jersey.

Stewart wants to turn Hockhockson Farm on Route 537 in Colts Neck into a sanctuary that would take in rescued farm animals and have an agricultural educational center open to the public.

The 45-acre farm would also have vegetable stands to buy fresh produce.

Stewart and his wife currently run an animal sanctuary on Whipporwill Valley Road in Middletown.

If the plan for the new sanctuary is approved, it would have to go before the Colts Neck planning board.
