Things to Know About Visiting Green Dell Farm
We would like to share the following information with you in order to help you have the best possible experience during your visit to Green Dell Farm. Please take a moment to read the information below.
· We are a family-oriented business. Profanity or harassing language will NOT be tolerated.
· Families are welcome to bring a picnic lunch and enjoy our shaded picnic area at the pumpkin patch. However, alcoholic beverages of any type are NOT permitted on our farm.
· Due to the nature of our business, we must take measures to protect the fields, forests, facilities, and our guests; therefore, smoking is NOT permitted in any area of our farm.
· All visitors are required to wear shirts and shoes. Because of the uneven ground and wooded areas, we recommend tennis shoes, hiking boots, or other sturdy closed-toed shoes.
· Please, no pets.
· Parents, know where your child is at all times and provide continuous supervision. He/she is welcome to explore the field or the surrounding wooded areas. However please realize that our farm does not provide a “controlled” environment and Mother Nature sometimes presents unusual situations. This could include encounters with insects, wasps, bees, snakes, and other wild animals; poisonous plants such as poison oak or poison ivy; plus, ruts, rocks, and other rough ground.
Hayrides & Farm Tours Information—Available During the Pumpkin Fest ONLY
· We operate two different hayride wagons on a daily basis. The total length of the round-trip hayride is over one mile.
· Each trip departing from The Hitching Post and traveling to the Outpost Activity Areas takes a minimum of 20 minutes each way. We ask for your patience as you wait for the next wagon departure. You are welcome to rock in the chairs on our porch, read a story with your child, play a game of checkers, or take the opportunity to learn about the honeybees or other critters that live on our farm.
· The last ride of the day departs from The Hitching Post one hour before closing. All riders must begin their departure from the corn mazes 30 minutes prior to our closing time. Remember, return trips take a minimum of 20 minutes.
· Each rider is required to remain seated and refrain from placing arms or legs through the safety railings of the wagons.
· Expectant mothers are welcome to tour our farm by foot or personal vehicle but are strongly discouraged from participating in our hayrides due to primitive nature of the wagons and the bumpy terrain.
