All barn parties are booked in advance so please call or email for availability.
Inside the "Party Barn"
Children's Birthday Parties (May-Sept pricing)
Our children's birthday parties are reserved in 2-hour time slots. These time slots include the use of our Party Barn (see picture above) equipped with bathrooms, tables, chairs, outlets, and refrigerator. The feeding and viewing of our petting farm animals is included in the party along with a half-hour hayride. Pony rides can be added for an additional fee of $10 per pony for 20 minutes.
Pricing for these parties are as follows:
$9 per PERSON with $180 minimum (in other words, that's a minimum of 20 people).
Example 1 — If you have 6 kids and 7 adults, that's only a total of 13 people and you will be charged the minimum or $180.
Example 2 — If you have 15 kids and 15 adults, that's 30 people! Therefore, 30 x $9 = $270. Common Questions Do we have to pay for all the parents at the party? Answer: In most cases the answer is yes. We understand the difference between parents dropping off there kids and lingering around and adults who are attending the party. All adults attending the party and included in activities, excluding seniors and infants, will be counted.
Ponies are $10/pony for 20 minutes. A typical party for 2 hours that includes 2 ponies and 20 or less people would be $200. Any party with more than 20 people will be $9/person.
Time slots are typically 11am-1pm, 1:30-3:30pm, and 4-6pm.

Spring and Fall are the most popular times for our field trips. Spring is the time for newborn animals. We have many newborns each spring for all the kids (and adults) to enjoy interactive time handling and learning about spring on our farm. Newborns include goats, lambs, ducklings, chicks, and certain times of year, calves, piglest, donkeys and even baby ponies. We always aim to be as interactive with the kids as possible. Fall time is pumpkin time and always more activities each year. Please call or email to schedule a Field Trip. The group size and date can affect the pricing. Small groups less than 20 have a $120 minimum and can substitute a hayride for pony rides. Groups 20-40 are $8/ child. Groups 40-60 are $7 / child. Larger groups email or call for availability and pricing. We generally allow 1 chaperon for every 5-7 kids.
