This is NOT a zoo. The animals DO NOT come out of cage for petting they are for viewing. The rudeness is from you not from owners of a farm stand who love their animals and are close to a road where they can be injured. Future reference pay to go a zoo. Just buy the great vegetables and fruit... More

I live in High Bridge and I usually drive all the way down to Schaefer Farms to get my fresh produce, bird seed, etc. I love watching the kids and the excitement in their faces when they get to interact with the animals at the petting zoo. I see negative reviews here and I can't understand them. I've been going... More

Guess what's in and it is delicious. The corn, tomatoes were so just what the doctor ordered. Peaches were so sweet and juicy. Just leave some more for me if you get there. It is a great time of the year and Schaefer's will help with that. Thank you

I have always wanted to start reviewing places my family and I go to, but never got around to it. Today is my first review because honestly it was so upsetting. My 4-year-old has been wanting to go to a farm especially to see animals, pet them feed them. We live a few miles from Schaefer's and went there today... More

This is your typical farm stand but they do offer special events and activities during the year. God selection of fresh produce and plants. Nice to go for pumpkin picking in the fall. Fright Fest and Holiday lights are very well attended.

Took the kids (ages 13, 11 & 5) pumpkin picking...the pumpkins patch was great! Alot of great pumpkins to choose from and the tractor pulled hayride to the pumpkin patch added that "Halloween" feel we were looking for....the petting zoo was just ok for me, but the kids loved it...so mission accomplished! We stayed for fright fest and this was... More

I went to this farm just to get eggs because where I usually get them was closed. When we got there I went to look for the eggs and for my surprise they were very expensive $4.00 dollars for a dozen?? I know they are "organic" but still I think the price is very high, however I got them, also... More

I took my 4 nephews to Schaefer's for the Egg hunt. They loved it!! After the egg hunt we went to see the animals, and they were so nice. They didn't bite or scare any of the kids, not even the 2 year old. I cant wait to go back and get some flowers so the boys and i can... More

I buy virtually all my farm supplies (feed, bedding and hay) here! If they don't carry something in stock, Renee goes out of her way to try to find it for me. My modest flock of laying chickens all came from Schaefer's. Never a problem with any of my birds!

Our family has been coming there for over 40 years & lately the woman Renae thats now running the place, has been rude & nasty , horrible offering awful customer service. They treat animals terribly bringing them to animals auction to get rid of them after people donate them for a petting zoo. They supply no vet care! PETA ,... More
