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 hayride and a pig race. Off Season parties will not include a pig race but hayrides can be added for a fee. Plus, with party upgrades, it allows you to create the perfect party for your party animals!
Winter Parties – November 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) is 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. Weather permitting, your guests may visit our play areas and poultry pens.
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.
Can we bring our own food, drinks, decorations, etc.?
Absolutely! We love to see all the creativity that goes into these parties!
Do my guests that are under 2 need a wrist band or admission sticker?
Children 23 months and younger do not need a wrist band or admission sticker so are not part of your attendance total.
What is in a goody bag?
The goody bags are red cellophane and contain a souvenir cup, cow pencil, farm finger puppet, sunglasses and a whistle (Items are subject to change based on availability.)
Can we arrive early to set-up and decorate?
Yes! We allot 30 minutes prior to your time slot for that purpose. We also allow 15 minutes after your party to get everything cleaned up and removed from your area.
What pizza places deliver to the farm?
Manhattan Pizza, located down the street from the farm in Urbana, Maryland, is giving Green Meadows Farm birthday parties a special on their large cheese and one topping pizzas. The specials are for delivery only (minimum 4 pizzas) to Green Meadows so be sure to mention our farm when ordering! Their phone number is 301-810-5330.
Can we bring a piñata to our party?
Of course – sounds like fun! Just let us know you have one when you arrive and we will help you set it up.
What happens if there is inclement weather on the day of our party?
The farm is usually open rain or shine. However, you are welcome to reschedule or cancel. Trust me, we have never forced anyone to come and we don’t plan to start! We will be in communication with you on the day of your party to see what you prefer to do. And don’t worry, if you cannot reschedule, we will gladly refund your deposit. Our main goal is for everyone (including the party planner) to have a memorable experience at our farm! Perk of having a winter party in the Stables, the weather is always good!
Is my deposit refundable?
Your deposit of $100 is refundable if you cancel no later than 72 hours before your date or if there is inclement weather (referenced above). The $5.00 processing fee is non-refundable.
Green Meadows Farm is conveniently located near Frederick, Mount Airy, Damascus, Clarksburg, Germantown, Gaithersburg, Hagerstown, Rockville and Columbia!
