Tice Farms was a farm and roadside stand located in Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey. Founded in 1808, it was a local landmark which attracted families from miles around, especially in the fall, when it was noted for pumpkins, apple cider, fresh hot donuts and other fall products. With its across-the-street rival, Van Ripers Farm, intense traffic problems developed on fall weekends. It was the original home of The Greenhouse of Fear, a NJ haunted attraction which ran during Halloween season at that location in the mid-1990s.

Beginning in the 1970s, the farm was increasingly squeezed by local land development, and Richard Tice, the head of the family, repeatedly sold land to accommodate construction.[1]

The site of the farm buildings, on Chestnut Ridge Road, is now occupied by the Tice's Corner mall.[2]
