Rules on the Farm
For your safety and for the protection of our land, farm animals and crops, we ask that you read all the rules and guidelines listed below. Please observe and follow ALL notices and signs.
- Absolutely NO THROWING of fruit, vegetables, rocks, sticks, etc.
- We love well-behaved, socialized dogs, but please make sure to keep them on leashes* and pick up after them. We reserve the right to ask any poorly behaved dog &/or owner to leave at any time. *Please use a regular leash and keep dogs in the heeled position at all times. We ask that you leave retractable leashes at home or keep them locked in the shortest position. We strongly encourage you to leave dogs at home during the Festival especially during the last 3 weekends as your dog will be more comfortable at home than surrounded by large groups of people. Dogs are not allowed in the PYO fields.
- NO organized, unreserved group picnics are allowed on the farm. Organized parties and picnics are for the reserved party area only. We have the right to ask any persons involved in this type of gathering to hold their reunion outside of the farm area. For information on our reserved sites, please visit our party page or feel free to call us to make a reservation at (805) 523-2957.
