About Us

The Schaefer Family Farm has been in business since 1949. We are an actual working farm in the heart of scenic Hunterdon County. Owned and Operated by the Schaefer Family, members of the farming community for four generations.

The farm stands offers milk, butter and cheese, and we also have candy, chips, snacks, jellies, jams, local honey and ice cream. We also carry a large assortment of Country Treasures and Seasonal decorations. Enjoy over 100 scents of soy blend candles from “Our Own Candle Company”.

Our farm stand is filled with our fall harvest. You will find Country Treasures and fall decorations. Our own Indian corn, gourds, kale, corn stalks and a wide variety of colorful mums take home some local apple cider and fresh baked pies.

Meet the new arrivals in the Petting Zoo, and watch the goats showing off on their “Trapeze” and feed the animals.

Summer and Fall are our most busy time of the year, where everyone can enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables, from our garden. We also harvest over 50 varieties of Heirloom and Hybrid Tomatoes. Our summer fresh produce includes such items as: peppers, eggplant, beans, peas, asparagus, cucumbers, zucchini and much more!

You will be able to enjoy our Home Grown Sweet Corn. “Jersey Corn” is usually still available from the 4th of July until the October frosts.

During the day, in the fall, bring your family on a scenic hayride through our 40+ acres of home grown pumpkins, $2.00 a person, kids under 5 ride FREE! Weekends and Holidays from the third week in September, thru to Halloween weekend.

Farm Stand is OPEN:
Monday – Saturday 9:30am to 6:00pm.
Sunday 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Enjoy the Schaefer Frightfest (see the attractions and particulars on this site).

Once Halloween is over, we transition over to our Winter Wonderland! While you’re here, stop in at the stand for your Christmas trees, wreathes, grave blankets, holiday crafts and decorations, and much, much more.

Our winter hours are 11:00 – 3:00pm 7 days a week November 1st thru November 25, 2009. Starting November 27th, we are open 11:00 – 3:00 Monday thru Thursday and 11:00 – 9:00pm Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Santa Claus will be visiting the farm from 6:00 – 8:00pm the first three Fridays and Saturdays in December. Photos with Santa available. Bring your family to visit him so he knows what they want under your tree.

Enjoy your visit and have a Healthy Happy Holiday Season.
