Our tractor drawn hayrides are 45 minutes long and follow a romantic, winding trail all around the farm. Wagons can comfortably accommodate 30 people. A bonfire is provided either before or after your hayride and is perfect for roasting marshmallows and hotdogs. Beginning at 6:00 PM, hayrides are scheduled on the hour until 9:00 PM. Night hayrides are $12.00 per person with a 12 person minimum (children under age 2 are free).
* THE NIGHT HAYRIDE IS NOT A PART OF SCARRIGAN FARMS AND IS NOT A HAUNTED ATTRACTION *
During the months of September, October, & November Hayrides are offered 7 days a week, by reservation only. Hayrides begin at 6:00 PM, 7:00 PM, 8:00 PM, 9:00 PM, and usually last around 45 minutes. Before emailing Carrigan Farms to check availability, ask members of your group for several convenient dates and times. Email as far in advance as possible. Past experience has taught that September is a much milder month weather wise, and November is much rainier. If there are young children in your group, you may want to come earlier in the evening so the children will feel more secure and can visit the animals in our petting area while it is still daylight. It gets dark around 7:30 in Sept. & Oct. / 6:30 in Nov.
There is a $144 minimum charge for groups of 12 people or less, then, $12.00 per person for groups of 12 people or more. Children younger than 2 are free. One person should collect all the money and pay the coordinator before the ride. Each wagon can hold up to 30 people. We can handle groups of 100 plus. Cash and checks accepted.
For your convenience, use the checklist below to make sure you don’t forget anything. Groups should provide their own food, drinks and entertainment. We provide porta-jons, but remember… there is no electricity (only camp fire light) or running water.

Check the weather before coming and dress accordingly. The air around the lakes gets chilly after dark. The sun sets between 7:00- 7:30 pm; keep this in mind when scheduling because there is no electricity or lights. Also, please remember to straighten your clothes hangers before you come. Do not bring or wear valuables. Rings come off in hay fights.
Night hayrides are BY RESERVATION ONLY. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your night hayride.
