Is this venue accessible?
The picnic lawn is a flat, grassy field, accessible for most strollers and wheelchairs.
Where do we sit?
There are a limited number of picnic tables available. Consider bringing your own chairs and picnic blankets.
May I bring my own food or drink?
Food and beer trucks will be onsite for the evening. Guests may bring their own picnics or purchase beautiful, locally-sourced items (including ice cream!) from the Farm Store. To protect our environment, please consider bringing reusable plates and containers and bringing your recyclables home.
Will restrooms be available for guests?
Are dogs allowed?
Because this is a working farm, no dogs allowed, please. We hope to see your furry friends at one of our other Trustees properties this summer!
Is the barnyard open during the picnic?
The barnyard will not be open during the picnic although guests may wander down the grassy “chute” to visit the animals from outside the fence.
