Brookhollow’s Barnyard, once known for a petting farm, animals to visit, tractor rides, train rides, pedal tractor, sandbox, a train barn, and more, joins the growing number of New Jersey attractions changing how they’re doing business. While they’d love to offer those activities for New Jersey families they recognize that those activities need to be put on hold for now.
Now, I haven’t personally been to Brookhollow’s Barnyard, but it appears these farm animals like to get a little silly. The farm’s Facebook page shows the animals like to get dressed up to celebrate kids’ birthdays. Take a look at how your family can still see silly horses like this and the other much-loved animals at Brookhollow’s Barnyard.
