Q?

Can I have my photos taken at The Farm?

A.

We allow photography during our Farm Experiences/Festivals as long as they are hand held cameras or phones.  No tripods or lighting set ups.

For professional photography, we do rent various areas of our farm and stone barn.  Please see our Farm Rental for Photographers page.

Q?

Can I visit The Farm?

A.

We appreciate that you want to see our farm, but….. We are a private residence and working farm. We are open for specific events during the year, such as our Lavender Farm Festival, our Sunflower Farm Festival (New in 2020), U-Pick dates, and various other dates for our shop to be open. Be sure to follow our Facebook page to see our Events.

Q?

Can I bring my dog/pet to the farm?

A.

Sorry, no. In maintaining good agricultural practices, we do not allow dogs/pets (see below for Trained Service Dog info) anywhere on the farm.  There are several reasons for our policy.

  •  INSURANCE REGULATIONS, we have signed an agreement with our insurance company that we do not allow outside dogs/pets (other than trained service dogs) on our property.
  • FOOD SAFETY - Lavender is grown in close proximity to the ground and is a high risk crop for contamination.  Contact with animals increases the risk of contamination of our lavender. Therefore, not even service dogs are allowed in the lavender fields
  • CUSTOMER SAFETY - We have many boarders, riding lesson clients, photography clients as well as visitors to the farm. Dogs will be dogs, and no matter how well trained, dog bites, dog fights and other unpleasant contacts with other customers can sometimes be problematic. Some folks may be allergic to your dog.
  • FARM ANIMAL SAFETY - Strange dogs will stress and terrify our farm animals. Remember, at the farm there are horses, sheep, pigs, chickens and goats. To our farm animals, your dog is a stray animal (coyote, coy wolf, bobcat). We need our own farm dog to alert us when there is a stray animal on the farm. if there were stray animals (outside dogs) always coming on to her territory, she would be complacent and wouldn't alert us or protect the farm animals. Your dog may carry bacteria/germs that may make our farm animals ill.
  • HEALTH AND SAFETY OF YOUR DOG - It’s important to be aware that farm animals (even those that have been vaccinated) can sometimes carry harmful germs that can cause a variety of illnesses in people and animals (dogs/pets).  Farm animals can kick or bite. We wouldn't want to see your pet/dog get sick or hurt.

Therefore no dogs/pets (other than trained service dogs) are allowed on the farm property.

Only TRAINED SERVICE DOGS are allowed.
Trained service dogs are allowed, however service dogs are not allowed in the lavender fields or near our farm animals. The work or task a service dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability.  We ask that the owner of the service dog put the service dog vest on the dog that identifies that dog as a service dog and warns the public about not touching the animal. Owner must clean up after their dog. The owner of any service dog that causes a threatening disturbance can legally be asked to remove the dog from our property. As stated in the Federal American Disability Act, Emotional support Dogs are not considered a Service dog.

Please leave your dogs/pets at home.
