Farm Policies

We want you to thoroughly enjoy your visit to our farm! Please take a few minutes to review the following information and our farm policies. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Adverse Weather / Rain

Safety is our number one priority at VonThuns, and we adjust our hours, opening, and closing times accordingly for weather events. If there is a chance of rain, or it is misting, we will be open. If in doubt, call the farm before you leave home. If it is only wet, we will be open, but please take this into consideration when planning to visit us and dress accordingly.

Dress Code

To maintain a family type atmosphere, we require that our guests be dressed in accordance with the standards set forth here. We are a family farm – please dress accordingly. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times.

You are visiting a real farm. We recommend wearing clothing comfortable for walking. Use hats for sun protection. Pay particular attention to footwear. Chances are good you’ll get a bit dirty, so choose your shoes wisely.

Prohibited Items

Alcoholic Beverages – NO alcoholic beverages are permitted at all, ever.

Smoking or Tobacco Use – NO smoking or tobacco use on premises. We want to maintain a clean farm with clean, fresh air for all of our guests to enjoy. We thank you in advance for your cooperation with this policy.

Other – Other prohibited items include glass bottles, knives, fireworks, firearms, and BBQ grills. We also ask that you do not use straws while at the farm, for the safety of our farm animals.

Conduct & Child Supervision

Line Cutting – No line cutting on our event days. Please be courteous of other guests.

Profanity – Profanity and unruly behavior are offensive to our guests and may be cause for your being asked to leave without refund.

Child Supervision – Children should be supervised by parents at all times while at the farm.

What to Bring / Apparel

You are visiting a working farm and we recommend that you keep this in mind when dressing yourself and your children. Layered clothing, hats, comfortable sneakers or hiking boots and sun block are all items that you may want to consider during your visit. You may also want to bring spending money for our farm market. Open toed shoes and high heels are discouraged against.

Pets & Service Animals

Pets, even well behaved ones, are NOT allowed entrance to the farm. This is for the safety of our visitors as well as their pet. Service animals are welcome, but service credentials must be shown. All service animals must be cleaned up after, remain under control, and refrain from disturbing our guests, employees, or farm animals.

First Aid

We stock standard First Aid supplies that we can provide to our guests.  If an incident warrants more assistance, we will contact emergency personnel. We DO NOT, under any circumstances, dispense Benadryl, Tylenol, or any other medications.

Restrooms

We provide portable restrooms, including a handicap-accessible unit, for your convenience.

Terrain / Handicap Accessibility

We’ve done our best to provide smooth walkways for our visitors to walk on, but pathways can still be uneven or slippery, especially after a rain. All-terrain strollers or wagons for your kids work well. Wheelchairs are welcomed but users may experience difficulties accessing all areas of the farm. If you have any questions about our facilities, please contact us prior to your visit.

Payment Methods

For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express. Group leaders may pay with corporate, school, or scout troop checks for group admission.

Lost and Found

We ask all guests to bring any items they find to the office. Guests inquiring about lost items should check with the office and leave a phone number they can be reached at should the item be found. We are not responsible for lost items.

Military and Police Discount

Official military or police ID, active or retired, grants the bearer and his or her immediate family $1.00 off regular admission. Cannot be combined with any other discounts.

Parking

We have plenty of parking and bus parking available for groups.
