Visit our Farm
Because everybody needs a little bit of Shoofly in their life!
People of ALL ages enjoy a visit to Shoofly Farm!
After your free visit please consider donating to our farm, all money earned or donated during our visits goes directly to the feed and care of our animals, most of which are rescues!
Come visit and interact with our animals for a FREE farm visit or private tour. Visitors can feed chickens, ducks, and hold bunnies. Take time to pet and love on our goats, pigs, and horses. Bring a blanket and lunch and picnic on our grounds or in our pasture by our 1-acre pond! Purchase our 5-minute pony/horse ride through the pines. Rides during FREE farm visits are $15 and provided helmets are required if under 18. (all riders must be age 2 or older and below 220lbs.) We also offer tractor-drawn hayrides for $5 a rider, 2 and under are free!
***Please note the only restrooms we have onsite at this time are porta-johns, we apologize for the inconvenience!***
