See Silly Animals and More at Brookhollow’s Barnyard Drive Thru Farm

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.

How do I get tickets to the Drive Thru Farm at Brookhollow’s Barnyard?

The only place to buy tickets is on the farm’s website. Tickets go on sale every day at 10 am for the following day. There are no advanced ticket sales beyond one day. If you are unable to get tickets after 10 am that means the tickets have either sold out for the day or the weather is not suitable for a drive-thru. You can not buy same day tickets.

Once you have a ticket, print out the attachment. Read rules and arrive the next day at your allotted time. Guests will show tickets through the window so there is no contact between guests and employees.

How much will it cost?

Tickets will be $15 per carload, starting Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 22, 2020. Tickets are assigned to a specific time slot. There are no refunds.
