Adopt an Animal

Anyone can adopt an animal at The Farm and become its “parent”. As an adoptive parent, you are helping to provide for the food and care of “your” animal. Of course, your adopted animal stays at The Farm where it is cared for by farm staff. (Note: for all practical purposes, some of the animals are sold when they reach maturity.) It’s easy to adopt! Choose your favorite farm animal and adopt it for a year by making a tax-deductible donation. A farm “parent” receives an adoption certificate; his/her name listed at The Farm, and a poster as a “thank you”, because we do appreciate your support. Adopt before December 11, and you will receive an invitation in the mail to a special holiday event at The Farm on December 12. Adopt soon!

Birthday Parties

Celebrate your child’s birthday with farm flair! Meeting the animals, riding pony (April–October) or going on a hayride create a very unique party for your 3 to 9 year old.

Party package includes pony rides or hayride, lemonade, table settings, a bandana for each child, and of course a visit with the animals.
