Additional Important Party Information

Reservations, Deposits & Last Minute Requests:

 

  • A deposit of $100 ($50 for Animal Lovers, $200 for Harvest Hall) is required per party to reserve your day and time.  This deposit is non-refundable but it is transferable towards another event ONLY.
  • An industry standard $30 service fee is added to all events.
  • Additional deposits may be required for food and/or activity options.
  • We are happy to meet with you to discuss your event in person. Because we are not always available for drop-in visits, we encourage you to make an appointment so we may dedicate that time to you.
  • Please note that all accommodations will be made for last minute requests and changes, but additional fees may apply.  Requests for private moon bounces, ponies, campfires, hay wagon rides or party attendants must be made at least 7 days prior to your event.   Any changes made to your party within 72 hours of the event will be assessed a $75 charge.
  • Changes made the day of your party (not already listed) may be subject to a $10 per change charge.  Please note that if bringing your own food, you must sign an acknowledgement of procedures and tips from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

    Failure to comply with this requirement will forfeit the vendor’s right to enter and perform activity on the property.

Weather-Related Cancellation Policy :

Events are not cancelled for weather related reasons until 3pm the day before your event. To avoid the stress of rescheduling your event, we actually recommend waiting until the morning of your event to make that decision. Why? Weather forecasts change hourly and are frequently wrong. Should you decide to cancel/reschedule prior to the 3pm cut off the day before your event, you will be required to pay a rescheduling fee of $50 and will forfeit your deposit.

Check the weather at www.weather.com the day before your party (no earlier than 3pm) at the zip code location 07930 and click ‘hour by hour.’ We look at percentages 2 hours prior, during and 2 hours after your event time and determine whether a party should be cancelled based on those percentages.

50% + Chance of Rain:

If there is a 50%+ chance of rain starting 2 hours before, during or after your event time you may reschedule your tour with no rescheduling fees.  Your deposit will carry over to the rescheduled date.

Less than 50% Chance of Rain:

We will mutually discuss and agree to proceed, reschedule or cancel your tour utilizing the fee structure outlined above.
