Harbes Farms’ Safety Rules
To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our farm guests, please respect the following rules:
Guest Safety: Harbes Farms takes great pride in its attention to guest safety. Equipment and many activities are monitored and regularly inspected and employees are trained to monitor guests for safety. However, employees are not intended to be the only supervisors of guests, especially children. All attractions and activities are intended for those in good health to partake in at their own and parental discretion, according to their abilities and at their own risk.
Age policy: Anyone 12 and younger MUST be accompanied by a paying adult (age 18 years+) to enter into the Activity/Maze areas. Although most of our activities are staffed, they are not supervised. Your safety is important to us, and we are sure you will have fun playing alongside your children as well!
Farm Animals: Although we are excited for you to meet our farm animals, please remember we are not a petting zoo. The animals are friendly but also unpredictable. We recommend children and adults do not reach over or through our animal fences. Hand-sanitizing stations and hand-washing sinks are available in the animal areas and we always recommend washing hands after visiting the animals.
Smoking: For the safety of everyone, smoking (including e-cigarettes and vaping) is prohibited throughout the farm.
Allergies: Please be aware of the possibility of farm animal, hay/straw, corn, and other environmental-related allergy exposures while on the farm. More information is available about food ingredients at each venue upon request. Please see first aid below.
First Aid: Limited basic assistance is offered as a convenience to our guests while on the farm. It is not intended to replace professional medical care. Personal medical devices such as inhalers and epi-pens are recommended to be on people (including within field trips) at all times, as there may be environmental triggers on the farm. These devices are not available from first aid. Incidents will be documented on an incident report, but that is NOT intended as any type of agreement between parties. Harbes Family Farms reserves the right to contact additional professional medical services, such as 911, as determined necessary.
Working Farm: Harbes Farms are working farm operations. Although the farm operations are separated from the guest areas, it is still on the same property. Please advise children to never approach working farm equipment and be cautious of the possibility of farm equipment near guest areas.
Lost Children: Harbes Farms is aware of the possibility of children wandering away from their party. Although supervision is the guardian’s and teacher’s responsibility, the farm will respond quickly when a child is missing from their group. Please inform children that if they get lost, they can contact any employee for assistance. Teachers are expected to have an initial and final child count before arrival and departure. We appreciate your cooperation.
Jumbo Jumpers Bounce Pillows: This attraction is intended for use by people in good general health. For the safety of others, there is a weight restriction of 250 pounds per person and the number of jumpers at one time is limited. It is not recommended for use by those who have had recent surgery, heart history, high blood pressure, neck or back injuries or problems, leg or ankle injuries or weakness, dizziness, seizures, motion sickness, or any other health issues that could be aggravated by strenuous activities such as jumping. It is not recommended for pregnant women. Children under the age of 2 are not permitted on the Jumpers. Jumpers are responsible for themselves and the children who accompany them. Parents are responsible for children jumping on the pillow, even if they are not jumping. Flips and somersaults are prohibited.
Corn and Hedge Mazes: Guests 12 and younger must be accompanied by a paying adult (18 years+). Corn mazes are not intended for those with recent surgery, heart history, high blood pressure, anxiety, claustrophobia, panic attacks, mobility limitations, dizziness, seizures, severe environmental allergies or any other health issues that could be triggered by long-distance walking and a disorientation to location. Our mazes are monitored, but every guest’s exact location in a maze is not being monitored.
Hayrides: While on a hayride, please remain seated at all times. Parents must supervise children at all times. Do not lean over the railing and please keep your head and limbs inside at all times. Pregnant women be advised – the hayride can be bumpy.
