Information to know when holding a party at the farm

When bringing your Birthday Guests to the farm please make sure that all attendees are fully aware of our Farm Safety Rules.

Duration of Birthday Parties
all parties are 3 hours

Child Supervision Ratio required: There must always be a ratio of at least 1 adult for every 3 children.

Guest Numbers can be adjusted
Choose a party with numbers close to what you are expecting.  If you would like to bring more folks than what the package provides, you may add extra pre-paid guests at a reduced rate of $13.99 +GST, a child for $11.99 +GST.

Guest Lists:
We ask that you provide a guest list on the Thursday prior to your party, along with payment for any final extras you require, e.g., additional guests, pizzas.  Remember, pre-paid guests get a discounted rate.  No-shows can be refunded (you will need to check out at the end of your party to confirm attendance with us).  Guest lists are important to smooth quick entrance of your guests and eliminate the need for the host to wait at the gate for party stragglers.

Exchanges
if you have fewer children than the package allows for, you may bring an extra adult in place of 2 children if you wish. If the package allows more adults than you need, you may replace one adult with one child.

Birthday Barn and Tipi
Either spot is a great place for birthday cake, lunch and opening presents etc. Both have tables with generic type tablecloths (i.e. use ours or your own special themed tablecloths). Plan to use the first 5 minutes of your time for a quick set up, and the last 5 minutes for a quick takedown. Typically there will be other parties booked both before and after your party.  Please be considerate with timing.  Very large parties may request the Prairie Palace which is a larger space.

Food
Pizza is the only food-related item that comes with your party package (more can be ordered). You are welcome to bring additional menu items, e.g., veggie trays, drinks, your special Birthday cake. Plan to bring food in a cooler that can stay in your vehicle, parked right outside the Birthday Barn or Tipi, so it is handy for a quick transfer when it is your turn in the Birthday Barn or Tipi. Temperature sensitive cakes may be held in the freezer/fridge at Admissions   Please label well.

Extras
Personal preference items (specific items to theme your party) including plates, cutlery, napkins,  are the responsibility of the host.

Balloons 

Mylar Balloons are great!  Latex balloons, no.  If latex balloons escape, and pop or deflate, and become litter, they pose a dangerous threat if eaten by an animal.  Serious issues, even death, can result.

Pinatas

Pinatas are an issue due to the litter factor, which can cause serious health issues if eaten by an animal. If you have your heart set on a pinata, please give us a call!  403-239-0638
 

 
Plan to have a fun and safe time exploring the farmyard with all your party guests at Butterfield Acres!
