Toilets will be available at select farms. Look for the designation within the descriptions in this booklet. Some farms will conduct tours and demonstrations.
For your safety, follow the farmers' instructions and be respectful of the animals. These are working farms; have control over small children at all times. Wash your hands after exposure to livestock. Wear sturdy shoes. Don't bring pets.
