You are issued an e-invoice upon making a reservation. Full payment is due three weeks before your trip*. If payment is not received by the due date indicated on your invoice, your trip is considered canceled. *We do not issue refunds or credits if you bring fewer admissions. You are permitted to underpay by several admissions in advance. We perform headcounts of all students and parents upon arrival, and will collect for additional admissions due on the day of your trip.
Guided programs require a minimum of 20 people per class/group. You may reserve a program for fewer people, but are obligated to pay the fee for 20 people (enables us to cover staff/supply costs). Once you make a reservation, the number of spaces you reserve represents students and parents and is the maximum number of people you can bring for your trip.
Parent chaperones are charged admission and we recommend 2-3 parents per class. Teachers, paraprofessionals and other school/organization staff are not charged admission. For summer programs, we charge per person including staff and offer one free admission for every 25 people.
Hayrides are included in several programs: Seed to Pumpkin, Seasonal Farm Tours, and Animal Adventures. Hayrides are not offered in winter, but can be added to all other spring, summer, and fall programs for an additional $1/person.
If you wish to bring bagged lunch, you will be asked to indicate this when you register for your program. Lunch time typically occurs after your program. Eating areas are indoors, outdoors, or picnic-style, and are assigned based on availability.
All programs are offered rain or shine, and most aspects occur outdoors. Cancellations are at the discretion of Queens Farm. If you choose not to attend the trip due to inclement weather, call us by 8:30 am the day of your trip to cancel and receive a credit to use within the school year. Refunds are not offered and no-shows will be charged the full amount.
