  • Join Us for Spooky Times 2017 – Saturday, October 28

    By Lauren Merriman, August 23, 2017

    Deer Hollow Farm will be transformed on Saturday, October 28th from 10am to 3pm with flying ghosts, live scarecrows, and costumed families enjoying the Halloween season and supporting Deer Hollow Farm.

    During Spooky Times, visitors can read along and follow the adventures of Suzy the Scare-a-crow in the story Suzy and the Talking Pumpkin.  Story boards are posted around the barnyard, leading visitors from the orchard, through the barns, livestock pens, and ending in the garden.  The Halloween decorations include displays of Suzy posed in various scenes from the story.  Visitors can make children’s Halloween candy crafts featuring spiders and bats and there is a “Dark Forest” discovery area, with touchable items from the Nature Center and bubble making.  This event s great for families with young children, 0-6 years old.

    Bring the Family to explore haunted barns, enjoy children’s activities and of course meet the residents of the Farm:  pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, ducks, and cows.  All profits from this event go to livestock care and feed.

    $7 per person, $5 with costume.  All ages welcome!  Light rain or shine.

    Lots of volunteers will treat you (no tricks) to a very good time!
