When you come to the Donkey Dairy:
• Feel free to pet the donkeys, but don’t touch the fence wires-they will shock you!
• DO NOT FEED the donkeys or other animals, they’re each on a special diet and treats aren’t good for them.
• Do not cross fences unless one of the Traywicks say it's ok. Momma donkeys are protective!
• No dogs allowed! Our livestock guard dogs or donkeys may kill or injure your dog if they think it’s a threat to “their” farm family and animals.
• This is a working farm. We are not responsible for accidents.
• Wear shoes. Watch your step. Tree roots, etc. pop up all the time.
• If your child is visiting the farm, it is their parents responsibility to ensure their safety at all times. Bike riding is only allowed if your child brings their own helmet and wears it at all times. Playground equipment is used at your own risk. Animals and bugs can bite, scratch, kick, etc. on the farm. Play / visit / climb trees and have fun at your own risk. :)
• If you or your child are sick or if you suspect you are a strep carrier, please DO NOT enter the farm even if you think it’s “just allergies”. There may be other immune compromised children visiting, as well as newborn animals that could become sick from being exposed to germs. We will ask anyone to leave who we suspect may be sick.
• Wash your hands with soap or use hand sanitizer before and after petting animals to help us keep our farm animals, and you, healthy.
