Throw A Birthday Party! – Modified Format for Covid 19

Take advantage of a unique opportunity… learn about, meet and interact with farm animals privately so that you can feel safe during Covid 19. Two popular options to choose from:

Standard Farm Birthday Party Package

Because were are so many Covid 19 guidelines that are necessary to follow in order to keep everyone safe, we have modified our usual Standard Farm Birthday Package. The modified version of the party has two options:

Option 1:

A group of no more than 12 people (adults and children total) has a one hour private visit, to spend on the farm. A bag of scratch grain that can fed to any of the birds is provided upon arrival. In addition, baskets of hay are located outside of the sheep, goat and rabbit pens that any of the participants can feed to those animals.
The group is assigned to a picnic table, which will be covered with a tablecloth, that they can use to keep personal belongings. It will also be used for the cake celebration*. (We also have a room for the celebration in case of unexpected inclement weather during the visit). The group can spend their time meandering around the farm independently and then finish the visit with the cake celebration.

Due to Covid 19, we do not serve the cake or provide assistance during the celebration part of the visit. It will be important for the group to monitor the time between visiting the animals and the time allotted for the actual celebration as there is a one hour limit.

*Cake/cupcakes to be  provided by the group. Unfortunately, we cannot allow any open flames due to their inherent danger;  therefore matches cannot be used at any time.

Base price for Option 1 includes a 1-hour private visit for up to 12 people, 1 chilled bottle of water or juice per person, 1 bag of scratch feed and  hay filled baskets for feeding specific animals around the farm.  $75.00.

For even more fun, choose from any of these add-ons:

  • One of our adorable soft and cuddly plush farm animals. Choose from a goat, lamb, duckling, calf, tortoise or bunny. Prices vary from $11.95-13.95 each.
  • 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).

Option 2:

A group of no more than 12 people (adults and children total) has a 1 ½ hour private visit  on the farm.  The group is assigned to a picnic table up back around the animals, which will be covered with a tablecloth, and will be used for the cake celebration. (We also have a room for the celebration in case of unexpected inclement weather during the visit).

If you choose this option, the 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 a short 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 their designated area for the final part of the 1 ½ hour celebration. Everyone will commemorate the event with your cake* and refreshments.

Due to Covid 19, we do not serve the cake or provide assistance during the celebration part of the visit. During this time, it will be important for the group to monitor the time during the celebration as the total time allotted is a 1 1/2 hour limit.

*Cake/cupcakes to be  provided by the group. Unfortunately, we cannot allow any open flames due to their inherent danger;  therefore matches cannot be used at any time.

Base price for Option 2 includes a 1 1/2 hour private visit for up to 12 people, a farm tour, visit with a party animal, 1 chilled bottle of water or juice per person, and a Dalby Farm T-shirt for the birthday child**. $185.00
