We are excited that your program is visiting us at the farm. Children require special attention and supervision when they visit, and should be escorted by an adult at all times. If you are coming to the farm with any children under your supervision, your first responsibility is to oversee their actions and ensure their safety, and that they do not roam away or damage any of the farm's crops or property. Remember also that children may be more sensitive to the dehydrating effects of sun, heat and wind. Please ensure that they wear adequate sunscreen, appropriate clothing and drink adequate amounts of fluid while visiting. Please be mindful if farm machinery is being used, and keep children away from the machinery. We discourage all participants from entering forested and stone wall areas on the farm due to risk of poison ivy, and to keep away from the farm's bee hives. All participants should be aware of the possibility of ticks while at the farm. We encourage participants to wear light clothing that cover legs and feet, and to conduct “tick-checks” on the children after they have been on the farm.
