Farm to School Visits
Win the day with the “Farm to School” visit. You can invite the petting zoo to set up right in your parking lot or lawn and the children can come out and visit with their classes.
Farm to school visits usually include the 12 animal petting zoo, which includes chickens, ducks, rabbits, sheep, goats, and alpaca and a miniature horse or donkey.
Combo Packages You don’t have to choose between pony rides or a petting zoo. Many schools do both. If you’re planning a “Farm to School” visit, you may choose a couple of hand led ponies and a traditional farm themed petting zoo. For a larger event, you may opt for a live pony carousel, a petting zoo, and even some specialty add on animals.
Traditional Petting Zoos Choose a 12, 20 or 25 animal petting zoo. All zoos include chickens, ducks, rabbits, sheep, goats, an alpaca and a miniature horse or miniature donkey. Larger zoos include specialty animals such a mini cow, pig or giant tortoise. Children get to feed the animals. Hand sanitizer provided.
Pony Rides Deciding how many ponies you’ll want depends on your crowd size. Farm to school visits usually include 1 or 2 hand led ponies, while carnivals can feature a 3 or 6 pony carousel. A good rule of thumb is that each pony can give up to 20 rides in an hour. Request a large pony for children over 75 lbs.
Specialty Add On Animals You can really bring your event to life with a specialty add-on animal like a kangaroo or camel!
Is it age appropriate?
Our services are great for ANY age. Everyone from toddlers to teenagers (and grownups) love our interactive animals. Ponies come in a variety of sizes so that any age group can ride. If you are bringing out classes one at a time, you may want to allow more time for older children.
How much space do I need?
The 12 animal petting zoo requires a minimum of 15×15 ft. Hand led pony rides can be led around in yards and parking lots. Pony carousels require approximately 30 x30 ft. Specialty animals require additional space. We will also need room to park our vehicle.
What if it rains?
We have a very flexible cancellation policy. You can cancel or postpone your event at absolutely no penalty up until 24 hours prior to your start time. If you choose to proceed with your event, some services can be set up in garages or under awnings. We also offer tent rentals.
Will you arrive early for setup?
We will arrive approximately 30-60 minutes prior to your start time to setup (longer for very large events). We’ll need a place to park and access to the setup area. If your event is already in progress, children will need to be kept away from the setup area until all the animals are secured and we’re ready to start.
