FARM RULES

While we want you to have fun on the farm, we also want to ensure a safe and pleasurable visit for you and our animals. Therefore, we ask that you please abide by the following rules during your visit at Hollyberry Farm.

BE CALM:  If you are calm, then the animals will be calm too. Use slow movements and a soft voice.  Pet the animals gently and not on their heads.  Do not run or chase any of the animals.  Animals deserve our respect and should be treated with care and kindness.   

BE CAREFUL:  Animals are not toys.  They have feelings like we do and may bite or scratch if handled improperly. Our alpacas are closed up but if one does get out, please do not let your kiddos stand behind them as they may kick to defend themselves.  Ask any farm employee to demonstrate how to hold, pet and feed our animals.

BE CLEAN:  Good hygiene is important when working with animals.  Do not bring any snacks in with the animals.  Do not touch any poop.  Avoid touching your face while interacting with the animals.  We encourage you to use the sanitizer dispensers located at all our animal enclosures.  When you are finished with the animals, please bring your kiddos to the hand washing station so they can clean up with soap and water.  

BE CONSCIOUS: Our animals are all very docile but know that any animal can act out and accidents can happen.  Please monitor your children's behavior and keep a close eye on them at all times.  We do our best to provide the safest environment we can but you are ultimately responsible for yourself and your children's actions while visiting Hollyberry Farm.
