Q) For farm parties, how early can I come to set up and how late can I stay for clean-up?
A) We ask our guests to come no earlier than 25 minutes prior to party start and stay no later than 25 minutes post party. We typically have parties booked with limited time between so we ask everyone to respect other guests’ needs.
Q) What can I expect from the typical farm party?
A) Our parties are pretty flexible. Each private farm party will have two party staff. Please use the staff as needed to help set up, clean up, serve food & cake. Although our schedule isn’t strict, and we can easily adapt to your needs, the party flow is typically as follows:
Guests arrive & small animals are walked around/handled, pony rides 30 minutes, food time, cake time, pony rides additional 30 minutes, guests head out & small animals are walked around.
Animals are available for petting/interaction the duration of the party. Toys are out for free play and if the jumpy is added, that is available for the duration of the party as well.
Q) What is required to reserve our date/time?
A) 50% due at booking. Deposits must be paid within 3 days of booking, or slot may be given away.
Q) What is the cancellation policy?
A) Farm Parties: Deposits for farm parties are non-refundable. Both party areas are “rain or shine”. In the event of EXTREME weather, 24 hour notice is required to reschedule event. We do not hold “rain dates” in advanced. By paying your invoice, you are agreeing to, and confirming that, the details are correct for your booking.
Travelling Gigs & Rentals: Deposits are non-refundable. We will set up in rain or shine with pop-up tents. Same day booking changes, may result in additional charges/withholding of deposit. By paying your invoice, you are agreeing to, and confirming that, the details are correct for your booking.
Q) For offsite parties does the time booked reflect set-up and travel time?
A) No, if you book us for 1 hour. We will provide rides/petting zoo for the entire hour.
Q) What decides the travel fee?
A) The travel fees are assessed by Pony Town Parties, at our discretion based on proximity to the farm, date, time, etc. These will be disclosed at booking and are typically not applied for parties less than 15 miles from Ford Farm in East Bridgewater.
Q) Can we bring our own food and drinks for onsite parties?
A) Yes, please do! We encourage you to make the most of the space. We have people order delivery, cook out with their grill and bring in caterers. Your party is what you make it!
Q) Can we bring decorations?
A) You may, however, we ask you pick up any popped balloons, streamers, etc. before leaving the farm. They can be hazardous to our many curious animals. We discourage pinatas and any confetti-like products, as they are often too messy and require tedious clean-up post party.
Q) How many guests can I have?
A) Given the space, we don’t cap the amount of guests. However, we only have chairs/tables to accommodate approx. 50 people for the outdoor area. For the indoor area, we can seat approx. 40 guests.
