FARM RULES & TIPS

 As we grow our events at the farm, we have two priorities:  (1) to continue to offer an intimate, meaningful experience for each of our guests, and (2) to respect our neighbors' property and privacy.  Help us make this possible by reading and following the rules and tips below...

  • Respect Our Neighbors:  Our farm is a humble 1-acre property.  All property outside of our gates is the private property of our neighbors and needs to be respected as such.  Anyone found being disrespectful of our neighbors' property will be asked to leave the event immediately. Guidelines include, but are not limited to:
    • Do not trespass on neighbors' property.
    • Do not walk on neighbors' lawns. 
    • Do not picnic on neighbors' property. 
    • Do not pet or attempt to feed any of our neighbors' animals (including dogs and horses). 
    • Do not use neighbors' trash bins.
    • Do not park in neighbors' driveways.  
    • Do not park where there are "No Parking" and "No Trespassing" signs posted. 
  • Farm Animals:  Please be courteous to all animals.  This includes:
    • No chasing, poking, etc.
    • Do not open any gates or doors, unless instructed to do so.  (Animals must be kept safely in their designated areas). 
    • Do not feed any of the animals, unless instructed to do so.

  • Kids:  The farm is very kid-friendly.  That said, parents must be responsible for their children at all times.  Additional rules to enforce:
    • No running.
    • Everything that's on the ground, stays on the ground (ie: no throwing rocks).
    • Do not climb any fences.
  • Pets:  No dogs, or other outside animals, are permitted on the property.  This is for the safety of our animals and guests.
  • Weather:  All events are rain or shine.  
  • What to Bring: Bring layers, comfy shoes, hats, sunglasses and/or umbrellas as needed.  
  • Payment:  Our "soap cottage" accepts cash, credit cards and checks.  
  • Accessibility:  We offer a wheelchair-accessible port-a-potty at most of our events.  However, many guests find that the terrain on the farm is not suitable for wheelchairs.  
  • Picnics/Local Restaurants:  We have limited space for bring-your-own picnics; there are 2 picnic tables available and a small grassy area for picnic blankets.  Please note that our neighbors' lawns, driveways and sidewalks are NOT available for picnics.  If you'd prefer to eat at a local restaurant, you can find our list of favorites here.  
  • Photography Policy:  Upon entering the property, you grant to Chivas Skin Care and its employees/volunteers the right to photograph you and your dependent(s) for use in Chivas Skin Care print, electronic, and digital media and publications. Visitors are welcome to take photographs of Chivas Skin Care for their own personal use; in fact, we encourage you to share your photos on social media.  Please tag us: @chivasskincare .
  • Visitor Health and Safety:  We are a working farm. You may encounter uneven terrain, farm equipment and unfamiliar sights, sounds and smells.  Whenever possible, but always before eating, clean your hands by washing and lathering vigorously for at least 20 seconds before rinsing. Wipes and sanitizers are not adequate protection. Children under 5, the elderly, pregnant women, and individuals with heart disease or compromised immune systems should exercise caution while visiting any farm.
