Casa Goofy International

This scrap yard doubles as a naive art gallery full of found art and farm animals.

Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding Casa Goofy International with additional information or photos.

Since 1986, Casa Goofy has been a haven for travelers, artists, and transients. The property is strewn with industrial, post-apocalyptic metal yard art and clown-themed coffins, amongst other things. A massive dome covers the main house, but the volunteers who run the farm live in refurbished bread trucks, school buses, and shipping containers. The owner, Dennis, is a 79-year-old HVAC tech and former clown, often seen driving around town in a large yellow van painted like a banana spaceship. You’re welcome to explore the farm, meet the animals or even pitch in and help on a project.

Know Before You Go

By appointment only. Set up your visit at casagoofyintl@gmx.com. We ask that you wear close-toed shoes and be mindful of the nature of the property. It is a scrap yard in addition to a commune, farm, and petting zoo.
