More Information:

Upon arriving at the farm, students will be given an overview of the rules and the general schedule of the day.  Teachers will be given a copy of the rotation sequence and advised where to begin.  Please plan a few minutes for “travel time” between rotation stops.  If you are more than 5 minutes late to a station, you may be required to forfeit that station.  The wagon ride will leave on time. We reserve the right to remove any child (or adult) from the activities if rules are not obeyed.  Please adhere to your schedule as closely as possible unless instructed by a manager.  This is the best way we have found to ensure each child gets a turn at each activity without overwhelming chaos.  If the school allows siblings to attend, they will be expected to stay with the class until released for free play or lunch.

Student admission includes a bottle of water.  These are handed out by class only. Teachers will be given a ticket to turn in at The Rustic Rooster. Please have your student count ready.

Climate controlled restrooms are located behind the lunch area, next to Barnyard Ball and immediately behind The Crooked Porch.  They are handicap accessible.

Sack lunches are welcome.  You may also pre-order student lunches (hot dog or pizza) one week in advance. Tables will be marked for your group under the pavilion. Adults may also order lunch at The Rustic Rooster beginning at 10:45 a.m.  Please do not pull students out of rotation to order lunch unless instructed to do so.  We will give students priority seating for lunch.  If parents are occupying tables needed for children, they will be asked to move until all children are seated. Snacks and drinks are available at The Rustic Rooster throughout the day. Cash and card are accepted.
