Booking Your Party
Birthday parties are booked on Saturdays at 2 different time slots, 11:00am to 1:30pm and 2:30pm to 5:00pm. We also book on Sunday afternoons as well. You are welcome to come one half hour prior to start time to decorate and get ready for your guests. If you are interested in other days or times, I am open to discussing the possibilities. A 50% deposit of the total cost of the party ie., any additional options, is required at the time of booking to reserve the date and time. Cash, checks or credit cards excepted. (Visa/Mastercard) Balance due immediately following the conclusion of the party.
If it rains, everything mentioned, with the exception of the hayrides, horse wagon rides and bonfire can go on as described under cover. Remember to bring your camera. There’ll be many outstanding photo opportunities!
Children will enjoy a ~30 minute guided farm tour which features a visit with our live barnyard animals. Children and adults can interact with the horses ranging in size from the big work animals to the carriage trotting horses to our pony “Lily”. Other animals to visit include goats, a miniature donkey, a pig, rabbits, chickens, and cows who also call our farm home. The birthday child will also have an opportunity to collect the eggs from the chicken pen. These eggs are then washed and sent home with you to enjoy.
Following the tour, everyone is required to visit the wash house to wash their hands before returning to the party room for your private celebrations. As an additional courtesy, hand sanitizers are placed throughout our buildings for your safety and convenience.
