Frequently Asked Questions

What are your hours of operation?

Our hours fluctuate from season to season and are subject to change based upon the season, flower availability, and weather. Please check the home page, or our Facebook page, for our current hours of operation. 

Are pets allowed on the farm?

No, we do not allow dogs or pets onto the farm. Although we love dogs, our animals were previously used for protecting cattle from wild animals, such as coyote and bobcats, and view dogs as a threat. This causes stress on our animals and can pose a danger for visitors on the farm. We also can not allow any animal into our produce fields for the health and safety of our guests in accordance with federal and state regulations. Florida food safety regulations prohibit any animal from entering a field that will be harvested for the consumption of fresh produce. Service animals must be checked in at the entrance. For questions regarding service animals and what is covered under the ADA, please review their Service Animal FAQ, and Florida State Statutes . Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Is there an admission or parking fee?

There is no parking fee, however there is an admission fee per person 3 years of age and older during our Fall Festival and Spring Season. This admission fee aids in further development of our new farm, needs of our animals, and day to day operations and staff. Admission price can change each season, check back to the main page for admission costs when our u-pick season is open. There is no cost to come and shop in the Farm Store.

What is included in the admission cost?

There is plenty to do on the 20acre farm. The following activities are included with admission for our festival seasons: Crop Walk (Fall), Animal Viewing, Fish Pond, Beach, Photo Ops, Playgrounds. Additional costs - wagon rides, concessions, farm store items, & picking flowers.

Additionally, we sell our farm fresh produce, honey, fresh ground peanut butter, and other homemade treats. We are also licensed to sell our farm fresh chicken & duck eggs. Our Produce Fields are OFF LIMITS to picking as we are just getting started on our produce growing journey.

We are currently working on offering u-pick veggie bins in the near future, so stay tuned!

What animals do you have on the farm?

We have 4 donkeys, a horse, chickens, ducks, goats, and our new babies include 2 Scottish Highland Cows, 2 Kune Kune Pigs, and 2 Male Nigerian Dwarf Goats. 

Can we feed the animals?

Not at this time. Due to our animals being on a special diet, we do not allow the feeding of our animals. Please do not pick up old hay or give anything to the donkeys that appear to be food. Do Not offer animals empty hands as if you have food, and keep fingers away from their mouths as the animals view them as carrots and can nip. Upon entrance into the farm parents are agreeing to release Harris Establishment Farms from all liability and agree to supervise their children at all times.
