>> the ground (like any farm) can be bumpy in spots.
>> Restrooms:
>> There are porta potties on site.
>> Food and Beverages:
>> On weekends, no food or drinks are allowed to be brought onto the farm.
>> Food and baked goods are for sale at our Barnyard Grill and The Sweet
>> Shoppe.  No alcohol is allowed on the farm at any time.
>> Weather:
>> We strive to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all our guest.
>> If it is raining or our farm is muddy we are usually closed.  The
>> decision to be open or closed is on a day-by-day basis depending upon
>> the conditions at the farm.  An announcement regarding any weather
>> closure will be recorded on our Farm Hotline and posted here online.
>> Attire:
>> Because we operate in September and October, we recommend being
>> prepared for cool weather. We also recommend wearing closed-toe shoes
>> or sneakers.
>> Remember that you will be in a farm atmosphere and should dress
>> appropriately for the best experience.
>> Busy Times:
>> Keep in mind that weekends  are our busiest times.  You may want to
>> plan to visit the farm on weekdays from 3 - 7 pm or on weekends
>> between 10 am - 12 pm if you are looking for a smaller crowd.
>> Farm Barynard:
>> We ask that you do not eat while in the barnyard.  Please use hand
>> santizer or our portable handwashing station before leaving the
>> barnyard area,  and only feed the food provided in our coin operated
>> dispensers because our animals are on a special diet.
>> Corn Maze:
>> Please don't throw or pick the corn.   We ask that you don't run in the
>> corn
>> maze and stay on the paths.   Remember, smoking is not allowed on the 
>> farm
>> at all.
