Friendly Farm has many AWESOME programs and special family days. As you decide when to come visit be sure to check out our newsletter for details as to what we have planned for the month. Our newsletter can be found by clicking here or going to our News page.
Once you decide when to visit. Then its time to dress for the best tip possible. That means CLOSED toed shoes. You see, chickens free range on our farm and they see toes and think worms...peck, peck. Feeding the goats is always fun but they get a little excited by the feed and might not think about where they are putting their feet...ouch. Then there is grass and weeds to get in your flip flops. So, just wear closed toed shoes and your toes stay unpecked, unstomped, and grass free.
Second, wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. We are a farm, and we have some GREAT play areas that include creeks. So, if you wear clothes that you won't mind getting dirty you can play! If you have boys throw in a garbage bag and a change of clothes. Many boys leave here in their underwear because mom says NO way are you getting in my car like that!
If you have allergies to animals or hay, be sure to take your medicine!
Put a dryer sheet in your pocket or maybe two pockets! That works as well if not better than bug spray. Deet is effective but VERY toxic so try a dryer sheet or two.
Sunscreen if you must, we are not huge fans of sunsceen (google sunscreen safety once) but if you worry about sunbrun then go ahead if you must. We like to make vitamin D around here Lots of sun exposure and nothing to keep us from absorbing it.
A blanket and picnic can be fun. We have an ice machine so ice is available most of the time. We will have food but for now, we only have a few snacks.
Any other questions? feel free to call 865-982-7255.
Oh, if you purchased a deal chicken, Groupon or halfoff depot but you would like to participate in one of our programs, you can use your certificate for whatever the value is off a program. For example if you purchased a deal chicken for $20 that is good for admission for 4 ($40) but you have 2 kids that would like to participate in Kids outside ($40) you can use the certificate. Now, if you DIDN'T buy a certificate but you hear they are there so you will go get a deal DONT! just tell us you saw it and we will honor the price.
Last but not least! GET EXCITED to see Petunia, Max, Nugget, Heidi, Spike, and all the rest! We are all excited to see you!
