We organize, set-up, clean up, and orchestrate everything for your farm birthday party. Just use the invitations that we give to you to invite your guests, show up and have a good time!
Take advantage of a unique opportunity… learn about, meet and interact with farm animals!
Standard Farm Birthday Party Package
Each birthday party group will start off with a guided tour of the farm. Before beginning the tour though, the birthday child will choose a ‘party animal’ from our selected list. This animal will be introduced to the group at the end of the farm tour and will be the focus of an animal discovery talk where everyone will learn all kinds of fun and educational facts about this animal. In addition, everyone will have the opportunity to actually meet and, many times, pet and interact with him/her.
Following the ‘animal discovery’, the group will retreat to the ‘coop’ for the final part of the 1 ½ hour celebration. Everyone will commemorate the event with your cake and refreshments. After the celebration, if you opt to, this is the perfect time for the ‘haystack hunt’ and/or distribute other party favors.
The price is $260.00 for up to 10 children. BIRTHDAY PARENTS and 6 additional adults ARE FREE. Each additional child is $12.50 with a party maximum of 28 children. Additional adults are $5.50 per person (includes participation in the farm tour and one free drink). Guests under 12 months, are free.
This package also includes invitations, decorations, paper goods and one drink (bottled water or juice) per child. In addition, the birthday child* will receive a Dalby Farm Birthday Party T-shirt and a free ‘goodie bag’.
- You have the choice of either bringing your own birthday cake or we can arrange to have one for you for an additional cost.
- Haystack Hunt** for a fee of $45.00 or Jumbo Haystack Hunt** for $55.00 (The Dalby Farm’s version of a pinata – fun for everyone!)
- Goodie bags, filled with all kinds of old-fashioned fun toys and candy, can also be added for an additional $4.95 per child.
- Realistic, bendable 12″ wooden snakes are always a hit when added as a party favor for $3.95 each!
- Add some more fun and order Farm Animal Bath Tub Ducks, individually wrapped in a cellophane bag and tied with a bow, for a fun favor that everyone can take home, for only an additional $2.00 per child.
- To really thrill your guests, for an additional $2.00 per person, you can give them a real peacock ‘eye’ feather; or you can opt to give them a peacock ‘V’ feather for just an additional $1.50 each! (While supplies last).
- Additional T-shirts are available for purchase at birthday $15.00.

* If there are multiple birthday children, within the same family, (twins, etc), then an additional fee of $30.00 per child will be charged if they are to receive the T-shirt and goodie bag.
New Party Option for 2020!
Meet ‘Grover the Gator’ Birthday Package
If you have heard of the ‘Touch a Truck’ event at your local fire department, then you’ll have a pretty good idea what the theme is of this party option. ‘Grover the Gator’ is the name we have given to our John Deere Gator farm vehicle. Kids LOVE this very useful piece of equipment so much, that we decided to make it one of the highlights of the party!
By choosing this option, the party will begin with Grover’s arrival! The farmer will drive down to the specified location so everyone can see the John Deere Gator in action! Upon his arrival, the party participants will not only get to see Grover close up but also will be able to touch the vehicle! There will be a brief discussion of how important Grover is to the farm and how it helps make chores so much easier. During this time, party participants will be able to ask questions about Grover, see inside the cab, watch the dump in operation and see the beacon light spin and shine.
This 2-hour ‘Grover the Gator’ Birthday package also includes the opportunity for the birthday child, along with their parents, to sit in the vehicle’s cab for a photo op. Afterwards, party participants can gather around Grover, for a group shot that you can keep, or even send to each party guest! A fun and unique memory for everyone!
‘Grover the Gator’ package not only includes everything as described above, but also everything offered in the Standard Party Package as well. The price is $300.00 for up to 10 children. BIRTHDAY PARENTS and 6 additional adults ARE FREE. Each additional child is $12.50 with a party maximum of 28 children. Additional adults are $5.50 per person (includes participation in the farm tour and one free drink). Guests under 12 months, are free.
‘Story Stroll’ Birthday Package
If you’re looking to experience all the fun of celebrating your birthday on a farm and would like to add something a little different to your event, then the Story Stroll is for you!
Created as another option for younger children, the Story Stroll Birthday Package is sure to engage and enchant little ones, as they stroll through the farm. In addition to greeting each animal as we pass them by, we will also be stopping at specific ‘story spots’ along the trail, where everyone will ‘read’ the featured page of a farm-themed story book. As we meander along, meeting the various animals, you’ll see the children become more and more excited, as we literally stroll through the ‘pages’ of the book! The story ends when the trail ends!
If you opt for the 1 ½ hour Story Stroll Birthday package, in addition to the stroll, you will receive everything offered in the Standard Party Package as well. The price is $285.00 for up to 10 children. BIRTHDAY PARENTS and 6 additional adults ARE FREE. Each additional child is $12.50 with a party maximum of 28 children. Additional adults are $5.50 per person (includes participation in the farm tour and one free drink). Guests under 12 months, are free.
Craft Activity Birthday Party Package
For even MORE fun, you can choose to add a fun-filled, creative craft activity. By adding this option, you can still enjoy everything offered in the Standard Party Package but instead, the party will be 2 ½ hours long and all party guests will make a craft that they can take home with them.
The fee for the extended ADD A CRAFT party is $335.00 for up to 10 children. Each additional child is $14.50 with a party maximum of 15 children. Additional adults are $5.50 per person. Ideal for kids over 5 years of age!
