  • Be courteous and drive/park only where directed
  • Responsibly dispose of trash
  • Do not smoke on any of the farms
  • Please leave pets at home
  • Do not feed the animals, unless permitted
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times

Farm Tour Tips

  • Plan your route ahead of time! Your GPS will come in handy but with spotty service in some areas, knowing your route beforehand will help to make the most of your time during the farm tour.
  • Come prepared with supplies! Proper shoes, clothing, hand sanitizer and bug spray will help your time on the farm tour to run smoothly. If you plan on making purchases at the farms, a cooler will come in handy, as well. Remember cash and a camera, and you’ll be set!
