Can adults enter Davis Farmland without a child 12 years or younger?
Admission Policy: Davis Farmland is a family-owned, Children’s Discovery Farm in Sterling, MA. We are a child-centered business and for the past 20 years we have focused exclusively on children who are age 12 years or younger (chronologically), and their accompanying adults. The safety of our guests is of paramount importance to us. We use child safe wristbands and a single entrance/exit security system. Davis Farmland is the first accessible farm in Massachusetts, taking all disabilities into account in our design. We have always strived to be at the forefront of security and comfort for our guests. Examples include a nursing room, multiple hand washing and sanitizing stations, diaper facilities, and family bathrooms. Our Children’s Discovery Farm is an experiential learning environment for young children to learn by interacting with animals and playing in the great outdoors. We are home to North America’s largest sanctuary of endangered farm animals as well as having endless play events and structures that are specifically designed and developmentally appropriate for young children. Any child age 12 years or younger is always warmly welcomed at Davis Farmland. Any adult who is accompanied by a child age 12 years or younger is also always welcomed. Over the years, we have received many requests for departure from this policy, but legally and logistically we are unable to make exceptions. Please understand that we have only two options: allow admission for everyone or restrict admission universally. As a Children’s Discovery Farm, we have chosen the latter in order to ensure the safety and comfort of our young guests. In 2019, we began testing the concept of offering special events for all ages around our general Farmland schedule. We were looking forward to expanding the concept this year, in an effort to introduce the Davis Farmland facilities, food, services and experiences to a broader population of guests.. We also remain hopeful that this autumn, our Mega Farm Festival, featuring over 50 family fun attractions – including farm animals – will be allowed to resume. Davis Mega Farm Festival is open to all ages.
Are pets allowed at any of the farmparks?
No, pets are not allowed in any park, other than service animals.
