Stay with your group. Wandering guests are not appreciated and often get hurt.
Remember this is a working farm with a family that lives on the farm, be respectful of their property as you would want others to be of yours. You are invited as a guest to their home.
If you have a kid who doesn’t like to walk, bring a stroller. We suggest you sanitize the wheels after your tour, bring wipes or spray with you.
Ask LOTS of questions when prompted! Your tour guide is well-knowledged, take advantage of them

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.
