Brookhollow’s Barnyard operates a Pumpkin Patch during the fall. We are open weekends from mid September through October. Shoot our corn cannon, enjoy a hayride, take the kids on one of our train rides – Moo Moo Choo Choo or our Cow Train, and look for the perfect pumpkins for your jack-o-lanterns. During this time, you can access the petting farm from either the Pumpkin Patch entrance at 425 Powerville Road or our regular Petting Farm entrance 301 Rockaway Valley Rd.

In the fall of 2015, Brookhollow’s Barnyard introduced our newest attraction: Zombie Paintball Hayrides. From the safety of your seat on our specially fitted 20 gun hayride, shoot at fixed targets, skeletons and pop up zombies. New 2017 Pricing: $12 for 200 paintballs with the option to buy another 150 paintball for $10. Ride time is about 15 minutes but come early for refreshments, photos with real Zombies and scare time. This ride is best suited for the ‘tween crowd, but all ages can participate. Visit our shop for Zombie T-shirts and ghostly s’mores.

The Paintball wagon is also available for Birthday Parties.


Cut your own
Christmas Tree!

The cold weather finds the petting farm closed – we send our animals on winter vacation to our nearby farm where they enjoy lots more space and a large warm barn. We, however, continue to work getting ready for our favorite time on the farm, the opening of our “Cut your own Christmas tree” farm. After exerting all that energy finding and cutting your own tree, come watch Farmer Tina make fresh mini donuts. Tea, hot chocolate, coffee, delicious hot apple cider and donuts are available to purchase. You won’t feel too guilty indulging in the donuts after all that work! They are truly delicious! Please check our Facebook for dates and pricing.


For the past few years, the Barnyard has celebrated spring with an annual Easter Egg Hunt. This is the one time we offer pictures with our baby animals as well as the opportunity to hunt for eggs. To make this event enjoyable for all ages, we limit the amount of eggs per child. The price for this one day event includes a Barnyard bucket filled with carrots as well as 10 eggs per child and unlimited time at the petting farm. Egg hunts are at 10:30am, 12pm, 1:30 pm and 3pm. Farm is open that day from 10am-4pm.
