Stony Hill Farms traces its origins a generation back, to when owner Carol Davis's parents bought an idyllic 40-acre plot of New Jersey farmland. Where Carol spent her childhood milking cows, customers now wander through 18,000 square feet of greenhouses and stroll past garden benches laden with ornamental plants and flowers. Carol, her husband Dale, and their children carry on the family tradition of horticulture, helping clients select a rare, treasured orchid to decorate their home, or obtain a Community-Supported Agriculture membership to fill their pantries with local, seasonal produce. Families can also bond with a wealth of fun activities, such as winding through five different mazes in the fun park.
While you might have to worry about what lurks behind every corner at Haunted Scarehouse, there is one thing you won't have to worry about: an umbrella. That's because all of the gobblins, ghosts, and ghouls in the House of Nightmares and The Attic live indoors. So no matter what the weather, thrill-seekers can stay dry and warm as they carefully make their way past dark corners and ghostly visages spread across two fright-filled floors. The house is known for its especially terrifying denizens, so staff recommend it for children ages 8 and older or those who are descended from ghosts.
