The Set-up
Inside:  A 25 X 20 tarp goes down on the floor first.  Straw and hay are place on top and then the animals.  When the day is done we will take the animals, the straw, the hay, the tarp and anything else the animals may have left, back to the farm.  You just need to clean up after the children!

Outside:  Depending on mother nature, our program can be done outside.  We need ample space to set-up the animals and spread them out.  They can stand on grass or cement.  Please call to discuss the details of an outdoor event.
How far will we travel?
We serve most of Southeastern Michigan, however, we will travel no more than 90 minutes from the Farm.

The cost
is $1,000.00 for schools and special events.
