Green Meadows Petting Farm Birthday Parties
Looking for a place to have your farm party?
Look no further because you have found it! Green Meadows Petting Farm is the place.
Now offering birthday parties all year long, the possibilities for parties are endless!
We are excited about your interest in having a farm birthday party at Green Meadows Farm in southern Frederick County. We have close to 250 animals (seasonally) on 123 acres of beautiful, rolling farmland in Urbana, Maryland, a wonderful, friendly staff and (this is for you Mom) flushing toilets!
ALL birthday parties at Green Meadows Farm include a three-hour time slot for an up-close, hands-on experience with lots and lots of farm animals. Everyone gets free feed for the goats, sheep, cows, llamas and alpacas! Birthday parties, during our open season, will also include a hay ride, cow milking and a pig race. Plus, with a whole heap of party upgrades, it allows you to create the perfect party for your party animals!
Booking your birthday party is easy. A reservation and a deposit to hold your party’s date and time is our only requirement. The hard part is deciding which up-grades to use! No worries though because together, we will create that extra special day for your birthday child(ren).
Before we get to the pricing, we want to give you some basic facts about our party facility options.
Party Tents – April through November, can accommodate up to 100 guests (weather permitting in November)
Stables – December through March, can accommodate up to 200 guests.
If this seems like way more space than you need, we offer “Shared Space.” This means just what it says – you are willing to share the party space with other parties to save a few bucks. Some people prefer to have more privacy and space. If this is you, book the full Space – then the entire Tent or Stables is yours!
Please read our FAQ’s below as many more party planning details are listed.
- 10am to 1pm
- 2pm to 5pm
- Night time slots also available, call for pricing
- Shared Party Space – $325.00
Select this option for parties of up to 30 guests as long as you don’t mind sharing the space with another family to save a few bucks! 10 goody bags are included with this option. If you believe your estimated attendance will be more than 30, the full party space should be selected. Please note that, in respect and consideration for other families that have selected to share their party space with you, we ask that you keep your guest list to 30. You will be charged an additional fee for additional guests over the 30 count. Please see our FAQ’s for details.
- Full Party Space (Private) – $475.00
This option is for parties that like more privacy and are not interested in sharing their party space. 15 goody bags are included. This price and option is also for parties of 31 to 45 (or more). If you need additional admission stickers above the 45 limit, they may be purchased for $8.00 each.
- $100.00 deposit is required to hold your date and time.
- If you find that after making your reservation for a shared party, you have more guests than anticipated, please call our office to discuss options. If we have availability, we would be able to change your package to a full/private one. Please note that we cannot change a full/private package to a shared party package once your deposit has been received. No exceptions.
Upon arrival for your party, you will be issued the appropriate number of stickers based on your selection. Every guest ages 2 and up at your party must wear a sticker.
Winter Parties – December through March
- Winter birthday parties are held in the Stables, our beautiful, heated wedding barn with restrooms.
- Your visit to the Animal Barn will feature up to 10 different types of animals totaling 50 or so of our favorite farm friends for feeding and petting.
- The Animal Barn (with free feed provided) are the only portion of the farm that will be open and available for your party to visit as this will be during our winter season.
- Your visit to the Animal Barn will last about 1 hour. Advise your guests that late arrivals may miss the visit to the Animal Barn because guests may only visit the Animal Barn during your scheduled time.
- We ask that you keep your party together and not allow guests to wander around. Remember this is a winter party and the farm is not staffed for a full farm tour. Please advise all partygoers of these limitations.
