In North Carolina, there are only four acceptable forms of identification you can use to buy alcoholic beverages:
1. Current driver’s license from North Carolina or other states. Currently, when drivers renew their driver’s license in our state, the NC Division of Motor Vehicles provides a paper 20 day driving certificate and then mails the permanent photo ID/driver’s license to the driver. Drivers are allowed to keep their old license until the renewed license is mailed to them. The temporary, 20 day paper license is considered a valid driver’s license, but the customer should also show their expired license along with the paper certificate when asked for identification.
2. U.S. Military Identification. These identifications are green and white with a photograph of the individual and physical description.
3. North Carolina Identification Card. An official State of North Carolina Special Identification (ID) card that has a photograph issued to a person who does not drive. Identification cards from other states are not accepted.
4. Official passport issued by any nation. Passports may be in the booklet or card form. Official forms of identification include a photograph, date of birth and written or electronic signature.

There are some diseases and parasites that can be spread from animals to humans. The risk of infection through petting farm animals may be prevented by following everyday good hand hygiene measures. Therefore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warns that children and adults should wash their hands immediately after touching the animals at any petting zoo. Heightened precautions should be applied to high-risk groups: Children under age five, people with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women fall in the category of high-risk for serious infection, and hence should strictly follow all the precautions enforced in the animal contact area. If you prefer to wear gloves or shoe covers, please ask for a pair. **Upon reading this information at Greenlands Children’s Farm, you will have legally been aware & acknowledged of all the rules & policies set forth.
