What is included in my party?
VIP parking is provided for the parents of the birthday boy or girl. The party takes place in a shaded area which has four 8' picnic tables, an 8' serving table, and trash and recycling receptacles. Red and white checked tablecloths will be provided for all tables. If you would like to bring your own tablecloths, they must be secured with clips or tape - not staples. Each birthday party area has a hook above to hang a pinata. The birthday boy or girl also receives a bucket of feed for the animals and a party photo to commemorate their special day!
What do children do during a party?
The party begins with a draft-horse drawn wagon ride around the farm for all your guests. Wagons leave promptly at the start of your party so advise your guests to arrive on time. Each child will receive a wristband for the Farm Animal Center and a token to drive the electric tractor ride.
Do all children have a wristband?
It is up to you which children receive wristbands at your party. If you have babies attending or even older siblings that will not be participating in the Farm Animal Center activities, then you simply do not given them a wristband. Any children not getting a wristband will be given a sticker just like the adults that will grant them admission into the Farm Animal Center. Additional wristbands are available from your hostess during your party for an additional $20.00 each.
What else can they do?
Children up to 48" and 75 lbs. can enjoy unlimited Pony Rides for the duration of the party. The wristband will also entitle your guests to unlimited fun in the Moonbounce, Trike Trail, Cow Train Ride, Petting Corral, and the electric Train Ride, as well as driving the Electric Tractors during the 2 1/2 hour party. Guests can also enjoy our Farm Animal Center with lots of friendly farm animals to feed, a huge straw pyramid, Farmer Craig's Chicken Show, a Wooden Play Train, the Kid's Corral with sandbox, the Animal Show (11:30am/1:30pm/3:30pm), a Combine Slide, and numberous grassy areas locations amidst 40 acres of beautiful farm land.
What about food?
We offer Domino's Pizza delivered to your party area for $13.99 for a large 1 or 2 topping pizza or $15.99 for 3 or more items. Each pizza can be cut into 8, 12 or 16 slices. Please place your order by the Friday before your party by calling (805) 523-2957. You may also bring your own food or have food delivered to serve during your party.
What about decorations?
We understand that you have a special theme in mind for your party and you may bring tablecloths, tablecloth holders, balloons, party favors and eating utensils to match your theme. We also have a reserved parking spot to honor your child on their special day and a golf cart to help you unload the car. To protect our animals and the environment, we encourage you to thoroughly clean up at the end of your party. Failure to properly clean the area will result in a $50.00 clean-up fee charged to your credit card at the end of your party. Thank you for your cooperation.

What if it rains?
We are an outdoor location and rain on the day of, or even the day before your party, can be a spoiler. If there is bad weather in the forecast, we will discuss this with you the week of your party. The amount of rain and when we get it will determine if the farm will be open or closed and if we will be cancelling your party. You may also decide not to take the chance and choose to cancel yourself. In either case, if rescheduling is not an option for you, you will receive a full refund of your $100 deposit.
Can we barbecue?
Yes! If you or a caterer would like to prepare food at the farm you must provide us with a liability insurance certificate naming Underwood Family Farms as insured.
What about alcohol and smoking?
There is no alcohol or smoking within the gates of Underwood Family Farms though smoking may take place in the parking lot.
May we bring our dog?
We love dogs, but they must be on a leash and be cleaned up after!
