Service animals covered by the ADA are welcome at the farm. All other animals, including pets and comfort animals are prohibited. Please see farm management before proceeding onto the farm with your service animal. You may be asked if the animal is a service animal required for a disability. You may be asked what task the service animal has been trained to do.
Service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered unless these devices interfere with the service animals' work. Service animals not behaving properly will be asked to leave, unacceptable behavior includes:
• Damage or consumption of crops
• Marking, urinating or defecating in any area except designated area
• Excessive barking and/or aggressive behavior
Service animals may be restricted to certain areas of the farm, for the safety of our crops, livestock and your animal. Handwashing stations are provided in our portable toilets. Please wash hands before handling produce.
The ADA titles II and III define service animals as dogs or miniature ponies (although the latter are rare) that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for persons with disabilities. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task the animal has been trained to do must be directly related to the persons disability. Animals who sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADQA and are not protected by the ADA.
