Free Farm Animal Experience Visits

Because everybody needs a little bit of Shoofly in their life!

People of ALL ages enjoy a visit to Shoofly Farm!

Come visit and interact with our animals for a FREE farm visit. Visitors get to 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, take turns on our red swing or purchase our 5 minute pony / horse ride through the pines. Rides are $15 and provided helmets are required if under 18. (all riders must be age 2 or older and below 210lbs.)

After your visit consider donating to our farm, all donations go directly to the feed and care of our animals, most of which are rescues. 

Hours for Animal Visits

With great pain in our hearts, we have made the decision to temporarily close down all outside visits to the farm, this includes private tours and sessions as well as birthday party bookings and other private gatherings. Shoofly Farm will be honoring the events and visits already on her calendar, including our big event, our Haunted Hayrides, and Spookfest! However, we are no longer booking new appointments or events as we continue to recover from the vandalism and animal abuse incidents our farm was victim to in early September. Thank you for understanding this is not what we want but it is necessary to ensure we can continue to dedicate 100% of our efforts to the animals of Shoofly, both in their personal care and the care of their facility and land. We hope to be open for our FREE farm visits and private tours as well as event bookings in November. Please check back with us in a month.

 Thank you from all of us here at Shoofly, including the 51 and counting animals that call this place home.

Have a large group or school class?

If our public hours of operation do not work for you, or you want to ensure your group gets one on one time then consider our private tour option. 1-hour of guaranteed interaction with our animals and just the members of your group. You can stay after or come before and enjoy the grounds, picnic, or simply soak in the goodness of Shoofly. You can also have pictures taken as you see on this page by our photographer for an additional $20. Purchasing pony rides are still an option as well! Contact us to set up your private session. 

Private group visit - $45          Pony Rides $10 a rider

Getting to our Farm!

***PLEASE read ALL of the following instructions.

We are located at 15101 Branders Bridge road in Chester Virginia. If you use GPS this address will take you to the front of the property which is closed to traffic. The farm sits on the corner of Branders Bridge and Treely rd, please turn on Treely road and then make your first right into the driveway. There is a sign that says Shoofly Farm. Our parking lot is located to the left and overflow to the right in our arena. You can make your way towards the barn and stop in at our office to sign liability waivers and purchase a pony ride if that is something you are interested in.
