Get to Know the Barnyard Bumpkins
The Barnyard Bumpkins are the official quirky characters of Brooks Farms. You’ll find them saturating all the signage throughout our 10 acre play area called our Barnyard Playland.
At most farms you’re sure to find traditional farmers and animals, but Brooks Farms is not your average farm. You see, many years ago we were attacked by alien creatures who we first believed to be threatening. Turns out they’re not!! They’ve actually made quite the contribution to our busy farm. We now welcome all crazy creatures and friends into our imaginative playland. We call them our Barnyard Bumpkins.
Each one of these loveable barnyard bumpkins have sparkling personalities that they would love to share with you.
Their irresistible images can also be purchased on t shirts, baby onesies, hoodies and accessories sold both online and in our farm market.
Get to know our barnyard bumpkins below by reading (and hopefully enjoying!) their super fun biographies.
Betsy is one awesome bulldog. He is afraid of Evil Stray Cat and Ghosts. Betsy enjoys sleeping, eating and chewing. For some reason he has a fascination with ants and no one really knows why. Betsy’s favourite attraction of the farm is the chip truck.
If Bruce had a middle name it would be love. He loves everyone and everything! He works on the farm taking care of the animals. He quite enjoys his job having previously worked in fast food.
Buster is a young bat that can’t fly very well. He is afraid of the dark, bugs and scary movies. He loves to colour, spend time with Tansy and write stories about adventures (but not scary adventures!) Buster lives in the Maple Sugar Bush.
Charlie Horse is quite the character! He’s handsome, charming and has really sparkly eyes. He has a tendency to be quite dramatic, but people seem to like him anyways.
Evil Stray Cat is the dirty matted stray cat that lives in Rusty and Tansy’s barnyard. He is smelly (by choice), likes the rain and prefers to live miserably by himself. His pest control skills are something to be desired.
Gordon is a social guy who loves to cook and have friends over. A lot of people suspect that Gordon’s severe under bite could hurt his dreams of becoming an orthodontist, but he refuses to believe the hype.
Hooty Hoot Hoot is a miniature owl that lives in the Maple Sugar Bush behind Rusty and Tansy’s house. He loves cupcakes and pirate ships. Much of his time is dedicated to picking up garbage and recycling.
Red is quite a jaunty spider with some seriously wicked dance moves. He enjoys ballroom, tap and interpretive dance and has recently found a love for hip-hop. Red often puts on theatrical performances for the other spiders who reluctantly attend.
Roy Good Looking is a big headed Rooster who lives on the farm. He spends most of the day admiring himself. He’s in charge of all the hens at Brooks Farms – who generally tolerate him but don’t necessarily like him. He would probably be a decent rooster if he could just get over himself.
Sammy the snail suffers from narcolepsy, which is one of the many reasons he tends to stay close to home. His biggest fear is that he’ll fall asleep in the wrong place at the wrong time. Seems like a pretty legitimate fear.
Agatha and Art are asparagus. They love warm Spring Days and have the ability to grow right before your very eyes. They met at Brooks Farms and fell in love. One day they hope to have many asparagus children to continue on their legacy.
Benny and Becca are delicious strawberries. They love sunlight, honeybees and warm rain. They are not fond of frost, extreme heat or hail, as it tends to ruin their lovely complexions. Not all strawberries have Benny and Becca’s sparkling personalities.
Cork is a special little robot who enjoys celery, fireflies and competitive gymnastics. He lives in a Winnebago with his family and spends most his time perfecting his sweet break dancing moves. Cork hopes to work at Brooks Farms one day – potentially hosting his own show during the Fall Festival.
Larry and his family are a group of aliens that landed at Brooks Farms. Besides being overly suspicious very little is known about them. In fact, it’s not even clear which one is actually Larry.
Lucille Marsha is a worn and severely damaged doll that was rescued and repaired by Tansy. She was purchased for 50 cents at a garage sale, and her arms and legs were barely attached. Tansy sewed her all up and the two have been inseparable since!
Marla is the ghost that lives in a freezer in the creepy barn. She talks to herself but won’t admit it. Her best friend is a bag of frozen peas. She currently has three different bows for her head but prefers the red one.
Merk is an alien who accidentally landed on Brooks Farms. At first the gang feared him because they didn’t know his intentions. He has since won them over and proven to be quite the asset to the farm. Merk enjoys donuts, chasing chickens and hard work.
Twinky is Merk’s wife. They recently tied the knot at Brooks Farms. Although the farm doesn’t make a point of hosting weddings an exception was made for this beautiful couple. Twinky is extremely handy and well organized. She’s hoping for a management position in operations, and feels she would be quite the asset.
Baby is obviously the cutest, but potentially the LOUDEST baby in the world. It’s a fact: What Baby wants baby gets. Baby enjoys fresh diapers, long stroller rides and screaming.
Farm Fred is a funny guy. He loves all things Canadian and practically lives on Maple Syrup. He enjoys tapping trees and driving tractors. That being said, he hasn’t officially been tractor trained, so if you see him you might want to steer clear.
Rusty is an awesome farm kid who is obsessed with super heroes and tractors. He can’t wait til he’s old enough to cut the grass, but until them his days are spent fighting imaginary crimes and playing with his little sister Tansy.
Tansy is Rusty’s little sister who is mischievous and super smart. She’s usually up to no good but cute enough to get away with it. Tansy likes to make up silly dances, ride her bike real fast and collect the chickens’ eggs.
Bert is a pretty confident monster. He loves splash pads, jumping pillows and listening to classical music. When Bert was little he was a famous television star but he doesn’t like to talk about it.
Lee-Roy likes to spend his spare time playing the piano, making houses out of popsicle sticks and diving for pucks in the neighborhood pool. One day he would like to be a life-guard.
Skully is a skeleton head that lives in Rusty’s farm house closet. He has never been very comfortable with his accommodations and has recently begun looking for new properties. He is considering a move to the furnace room, the walk-in- cooler or the backyard shed.
Ted is a pretty decent monster. He makes good monster dollars and can bake a mean monster pie. Ted cannot sleep without a night-light due to his neurotic fear that here could be humans hiding under his bed. Ted currently runs the bakery at Brooks Farms.
The fact that people run whenever they see Gary is really starting to weigh on him.
Come on now people!! Zombies were once people too!
Mortimer didn’t remember much of his human life – except that he owed quite a bit of money. He hoped he was in the clear now. Being dead and all…
Ramone was dead. Yet he still felt he had a lot going for him. There’s something quite admirable about an optimist (Especially a dead one!).
