When visiting any farm, it's a good idea to practice farm etiquette. It is our experience that a lot of urbanites don't understand farm life. So here are some guidelines when planning a visit to a farm.
Farmers are busy people and want to be available for you when you arrive. Generally speaking, farmers will not allow people to go wandering about the farm without an escort.
A farm is not a petting zoo so don't expect to be able to show up and be able to handle the chicks or other farm animals. Yes, we know you want to!
Please leave any pets at home, Dogs especially. Children running around will stress out the farm animals. Please do not smoke cigarettes at the farm. Certain vegetable plants can contract diseases from the smoke.
Do your chicken research beforehand. Check our availability list . We can help you make your final decisions.
Be prepared to make your purchase and always bring a box or carrier with a closable lid in which to take home live animals. Always beware of and respect fences and barriers. They can shock you as some are electric. Remember, the farm is our home, from which we make our livelihood. Please respect that by not wandering around without Suzanne or Andrew to escort you.
These rules apply to any farm you may be interested in visiting. Following these rules will help make your visit less stressful for everyone, including the livestock and farmers!
