When You Visit the Farm
Things to know:
- It takes about 20 min from southeast Lincoln to get to the farm. Please use the restroom before you come as the farm store does not have restroom facilities.
- Leave your dogs and pets at home. This is a working farm and for the health and safety of our animals and yours we DO NOT allow outside animals to visit.
- The farm store accepts cash and cards for payment when that bacon or handmade local decor grabs your eye.
- The Little Red Farm may take photos or videos. We share these on social media. Please feel free to tag us in any photos or videos you want to share from The Little Red Farm.
- The fences are there to keep you and the animals safe.
STAY OUT OF BUILDINGS AND ON YOUR SIDE OF THE FENCES.
- The silver wire fencing has an electric pulse running through it and will shock you. It kinda hurts but you'll live, and probably wish someone else had tried it before you did.
- Please keep your feet on the ground and off of fences, leave doors, gates and buildings closed, and stay out of animal areas. That is their place to feel safe and be free to act how their instincts tell them. This is our home and a working farm. Thank you for being mindful and respectful of that.
- Please wear foot wear that can get dirty...this is a farm after all!
A WORD ABOUT CHICKENS:
- DO NOT chase or pick up chickens. They don't like to be petted.
- Leave Mama hens and babies alone. Enjoy their cuteness but stay out of their way. A mama will be protective and a baby separated from mama is at risk of death. Sounds dramatic, but it’s true.
- There are only nice roosters at LRF. Our firm belief is that everyone can be kind or leave...even the roosters, but we ask that you respect them too.
- Please save your chicken and rooster noises for after you leave the farm and leave the roosters alone. It is their job to protect the flock and they are always on guard, so let them work and watch from a distance. If you're calm they may even bring the hens to you to see if you have snacks.
- Chickens don't like to be chased, they think you are a predator that is going to eat them. Chicken chasers will be asked to stop or leave. When you are calm the chickens will come right up to see if you have treats and are very fun to interact with!
ABOUT THE DOGS:
- We have two large dogs that are very friendly and love to be petted. They will most likely greet you at your car when you arrive. Give them a little love and they will gladly show you around the farm! They happily will provide pet therapy for you on your visit.
IMPORTANT: While we are a very child friendly place DO NOT leave children of any age unattended outside. According to agritourism laws, we are not liable for any injuries that occur on property due to your or someone else’s negligence.
