Autumn arrives the 23rd of September, a little over two weeks away, and with it the fall season brings a number of opportunities to decorate your home, lawns, garden beds and your porch and patios with spectacular color. An autumn garden palette contains warm greens, golden yellows, orangey reds and lots of golden browns. The colors are dense, rich, warm and inviting. Autumn is a season of muted colors. At Goffle Brook Farms, we can help you spruce up your garden beds and planters in the classic colors of Fall. We carry a number of fall plants, including mums in an array of beautiful hues that are sure to brighten up your home, ornamental peppers with vibrant reds and oranges, celosia “intenz”, and seasonal décor.
Chrysanthemums come in rainbow of color choices. From russet reds to golds and yellows, lavender and purple, peach and pink, green, white and more! Mums make the biggest statement when either planted in masses, giving their tight, mounded habit and stunning bloom cover a chance to make your beds the envy of the neighborhood. Choose colors that coordinate with your existing garden. Yellows, reds and oranges will enhance your fall decor of pumpkins and gourds, while lavenders, pinks and bold reds will stand out nicely against a background of evergreens.
Chrysanthemums also excel in decorative containers. Whether as a single planting or mixed with other fall plants like grasses, flowering cabbage or pansies, mums can add the perfect pop of color to your container garden. Whether you’re looking for a quick splash of color or a fixture for your border, choose mums for a fabulous fall display.

Introducing Jonathan Green’s The New American Lawn Plan for all homeowners with lawns. The New American Lawn is a cutting-edge lawn care program that not only feeds the lawn, like every program on the market today, but, unlike all others, FEEDS THE SOIL! That’s right, the soil.
Healthy soil is the foundation for all great lawns. Your soil must be free of compaction, possess healthy microbial populations, and have the correct pH or your “great lawn” journey will not happen. Think about it. Would you plant your annuals and perennials in a poor quality potting soil? Of course not. So why not ensure that your grass is growing in quality soil, too? The New American Lawn Primer Video makes this happen!
OPENING THE WEEKEND OF SEPT 8th – 2023
There are many benefits to your child or your children when you take them to a petting zoo for the first time. One of the first benefits is that your child or children can get to see the different kinds of animals first hand. Many children like the ones who live in the cities do not get to see the kinds of animals that live in petting zoos.
A zoo of this kind can have a variety of different animals that are usually hand raised and very gentle. In a petting zoo, you may find baby animals like goats, chickens, burros, lambs, and often-small baby calves as well. Touching an animal is new and exciting to a child and you can watch as your child finds his or her favorite animal.
Our Petting Zoo is designed for small children and pre-teens to have a wonderful experience especially if your child lives in a city situation. The petting zoos give the parents the opportunity to expose their children to the animals and let the children have fun. The children can pet all the animals and feed the animals by hand as well. To a small child who has never seen these creatures before this is fun, new and exciting all at the same time.
