Haunted farm tour

Who needs a haunted house? For those who want to get into the Halloween spirit, Deer Hollow Farm and Friends of Deer Hollow Farm offer Spookfest, a haunted farm tour on Saturday, Oct. 27, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Guests will be able to do hands-on children's activities and crafts as well as meet the farm tenants -- sheep, goats, chickens, rabbits, pigs and Luna the cow.

Entrance is $7 per person, $5 if in costume and free for babies under one year old. The event is open light rain or shine. All profits from the event go toward providing care and feed for the livestock.

Deer Hollow Farm is located at 22500 Cristo Rey Dr. in Los Altos, in the Rancho San Antonio Open Space Reserve, and is partly funded by the city of Mountain View.

The educational farm is 150 years old and sells fresh eggs and seasonal produce when available.

Friends of Deer Hollow Farm is a non-profit organization that supports the Farm's educational programs to the community and schools by raising funds through donations, grants and public events.

Two years ago Google co-founder Sergey Brin along with his wife, Anne Wojcicki, co-founder of 23andMe, donated $35,000 to the farm to help keep it open.
