Shoofly Farm is excited to be hosting our 3rd Annual Haunted Hayrides and Spookfest. All proceeds from this event benefit Shoofly's non-profit Ranshaw Ranch, a certified 501c3  horse rescue. You can have a great time while helping to support a local charity!

Haunted Hayride - $20 per person

may not be suitable for younger children, ride at your own risk

This old farm was established in 1879 and carries with it an unsettling past. Explore our barn on a self-guided tour to learn about Shoofly's haunted history before one of our guides takes you over to climb aboard an 18-minute hayride through the eerie and disturbing 50-acre woods of Shoofly. This hayride is a unique experience you will NOT get anywhere else! 


Not interested in riding through our haunted forest? Kick back and enjoy some food vendors, and music, or roast some smores around our fire pit on the farm's main property while you wait for the more adventurous members of your party to return...hopefully.



Gates open at 7 pm

 Hayrides begin at 7:30 pm and run through 11:00 pm

Shoofly Spookfest - $10 per person
Children 2 and under are FREE

Looking for a less spooky experience? Join us for Shoofly's Spookfest. Admission includes our Hayride through the forest to see all of the props in the daylight. No devices, audio, or scare staff will be running or present, think of it as a quiet hayride with some Halloween decorations.

Back at the farm, experience our popular petting pasture and interact with goats, pigs, chickens, and horses. Play in our mini-corn pits. Or enjoy a short train ride (riders 50lbs or less) Bring your pole and bait because our pond is open for fishing (catch and release only) . Included in admission is a photo booth, guests can have their family or group photo professionally taken with our iconic farm background and vintage tractor and take their prints home that day!

Come in costume and trick or treat and shop with our independent vendors, offering an array of products and services.

Clim aboard our Hayride and watch some of our Shoofly horses and riders showcase beautiful gaits and speed along the backside of our hayride trail.


Spookfest will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays

 October 7th, 14th, 21st and, 28th

Special Offerings

Take advantage of opening weekend on Friday, October 6th and Saturday the 7th with discounted tickets, - $10 per person


meant for our low to medium thrill seekers who do not want interaction or sudden scares with live actors. This night is comparable to getting a "NO-BOO" necklace or light when attending other attractions or theme parks. Because of the nature of our hayrides, it would be difficult to honor a No-Boo light so we have given you 2 entire nights!

 Do not mistake this night as "not scary"! Our haunted hayride will still travel through Shoofly's creepy forest but with no jump scares, wailing, screaming, or goblins out for you. It remains disturbing however it is a nice fit for those wanting less thrill in their ride or to test their thrill level as we enter the haunt season! If you enjoyed your hayride and think you can handle more you will have 3 weekends to come try our full-throttle hayride.
