Hey yall Snickers our Goat is responsible for spreading the word on.... Maaa-nners. 

You know - Barnyard Ettiquette!

 

1. Siblings... to bring or not to bring that is always the question.

If you are coming to a party - please confirm with your party mom before hand about bringing siblings. Our parties are geared towards 18 -20 children. (and that's how many seats we have at the table). If your sibling is a baby or toddler in a stroller it is no problem.  If yours is an older child who will want to participate in the party...please confirm. (we do charge $20 for additional children beyond our party limit)

2. We ask all parents to remind our tiny friends Not to Chase the Chickens - it seems like so much fun... unless you are a chicken!  We promote kindness to all creatures great and small.

3. No Running - it is very easy to get excited in the barnyard and want to run around - we want to keep you safe and the animals too - so we always like to use our walking feet.

4. Quiet Voices -- ssssh...help us use our quiet voices so we wont scare the new babies.

5. Return Brushes to Tree -  Remind our little friends when done brushing the animals to put their bruhes back on the brush tree or in the bucket.

6. Be a Good Sharer - there is time and room enough for everyone to do everything and we always like to give a friend a hug and say... you first!

XXO - We love the farm. We love you. And we want to have a totally Farm-tastic Day!
