FARM GUIDELINES

"One of my most favorite days with the family yet!"Patricia V.

Lucky Ladd Farms strives to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all our guests, so we kindly ask that you respect the following rules and regulations:

AREA CLOSINGS

Due to mechanical, health, weather or safety conditions; we may close certain areas or attractions. We will do everything we can to re-open as soon as safely possible.

REFUNDS

Lucky Ladd Farms does not offer refunds for ticket purchases.

NO GLASS, CONFETTI, SILLY STRING, STREAMERS, WHISTLES OR PINATAS

The above items can be hazardous to our animals and are not permitted. Please help keep the Farm beautiful and clean for others to enjoy by placing trash and recyclables in designated receptacles.

NO SMOKING

The Farm is proud to be a vapor and smoke-free environment.

NO PETS

Pets may present health and safety issues for both guests and our animals; therefore they are not allowed on the premises, including the parking lot or inside parked cars. Trained service dogs are permitted.

SERVICE DOGS

Trained service dogs that are leashed and properly restrained are welcome at Lucky Ladd Farms. Guests with a service dog are asked to alert a staff member at admissions upon arrival for approved entry. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service dogs under the ADA and are not permitted at Lucky Ladd Farms.

Service dogs may visit Lucky's Barnyard, but are restricted from accessing our designated petting area. We kindly ask owners to pick-up after your animal around the Farm to ensure all guests a clean fun experience at the Farm.

DO NOT DAMAGE LANDSCAPING OR VEGETATION

Do not pick or damage any flowers, vegetables, natural vegetation or other plant materials. Do not walk-through, climb-on or otherwise damage landscaped areas, including trees and flowerbeds. Refrain from kicking/throwing rocks, mulch and sticks.

STAY ON PUBLIC PATHWAYS

Fencing, rocks, ropes and other barriers between you and the animals or non-public areas of the Farm are there to protect you from harm. Do not enter non-public areas.

RESPECT THE ANIMALS

Do not chase, ride, hit, flail your arms at, harass or tease the animals. Do not throw objects at the animals or into exhibits. Do not make loud sounds that might scare or spook the animals. Anyone found doing any of the above will be asked to leave the Farm.

ANIMAL FEEDING

All Farm Park animals are on a carefully structured diet. Introducing outside food can cause illness and even death to the animal. Approved animal feed is available for purchase from the Farm. Do not feed animals plastic bags or foreign objects. For good health and hygiene always properly wash your hands after feeding.

Use a flat hand when feeding the animals. Animals approved for hand-feeding include goats, sheep, ducks, llamas and alpacas. Do NOT feed horses, donkeys, pigs or rabbits from your hand as these animals will bite.

HANDWASHING AND SANITATION

Animals and bugs may naturally carry diseases that can make you sick. These are known as zoonotic diseases. Some of the most common zoontic diseases include:

  • Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, which you can get from a tick bite.
  • West Nile virus, which you can get from a mosquito bite.
  • Salmonella infection, which you can get after handling a baby chick, chicken, duck, turtle or snake.
  • E. coli infection, which you can catch if you touch areas in a petting zoo or animal exhibit where some of the animals are infected.

Thankfully, there are things you can do to protect yourself and your children from zoonotic diseases.

  • Always wash your hands for 20 seconds after being around animals.
  • Hand-washing stations can be found at the entrance/exit-ways of Lucky's Barnyard and at nearby restroom facilities. Additionally, hand-sanitizing stations can be located throughout the farm.
  • Properly sanitize any personal belongings such as shoes, strollers and clothing to kill germs that might have been transferred through contact with animals, their bedding or surroundings.
  • Protect yourself from bug bites by using repellent on skin not covered by clothes or shoes.
  • Check for ticks after you've been outdoors.

It's important to remember that anyone can become sick from a zoonotic disease, including healthy people. However, some people may be more at risk than others and should take steps to protect themselves or family members. These people are more likely than others to get really sick, and even die, from infection with certain diseases. These groups of people include:

  • Children younger than 5
  • Adults older than 65
  • People with weakened immune systems

PLAY AT OWN RISK

Not responsible for injuries. Adult supervision required.
