Children’s Birthday Parties

Baby Donaldson claims his Halloween pumpkin.What a treat! Your child will love inviting their friends to the farm for their special day! Farm Birthday Parties are perfect for groups of friends from school and/or parties for the entire family. All age groups will have a ball! We’ll help you create the perfect party for your child’s age group and interest:

  • We can make the party educational and fun with stories and lessons about the farm, what we grow, what kinds of animals we have and how the farm works.

  • Depending on the season, we’ll pick strawberries, pick pumpkins or create a planting project for each child to bring home.

  • We’ll take an interactive hayride tour of the farm and of course, your child is the guest of honor on the wagon!

  • You are welcome to bring your own food and drinks or you can choose from our ccatering menu! We’ll organize the food for you.

  • We have party additions that you may choose from…pony rides, face painting, clown shows, musical guests, craft projects, goody bags and more!

We promise that you’ll be just as thrilled with the party as your child will be! Sit back, enjoy the day and let our farm party hostess do the work! Click here to learn more.
