Have a Birthday Party!
Birthdays, family reunions, anniversaries, all kinds of celebrations can be extra special at the farm!
Birthday parties include:
1) The picnic shelter, reserved for the duration of your event, which is two (2) hours unless special arrangements have been made to extend this time. (See Note)
2) One (1) hour with a Learning Tree Farm staff member, touring the barns, meeting the animals in their stalls and getting to be up close and personal with our animals!
3) A hike through the woods to the tire swing.
After items 2 & 3, the staff member will let the animals out of their stalls and into the pastures. Guests are welcome to re-enter the stalls, pens, or pastures with the animals at that time.
Note on (1): If no other group is scheduled the day of your party, you may use the shelter for the duration of your event AND continue to use the shelter for as long as you like. If another group or party is scheduled for the same day of your party, then picnic shelter availability will vary to accommodate both groups.*
* There will be a 30 minute break in-between scheduled parties to allow for clean-up and set-up.
Once the staff-guided portion of your party is finished (items 2 & 3) and the animals have been let out, staff will leave. However, guests are welcome to stay at the farm as long as they wish – roaming the woods, exploring in the fields, playing on the tractors, etc.
Guests are asked to:
• Bring your own cake, beverages, decorations, etc.
• Clean up decorations and remove all trash. *Trash must be taken with you and garbage bags cannot be supplied.
Payments can be in the form of cash, check or credit card. Prior to your party, checks should be made payable to: "Learning Tree Farm" and mailed to Learning Tree Farm, 3376 S. Union Rd., Dayton, Ohio 45417 Attn: Birthday party.

Learning Tree Farm will refer you to our approved vendor contact. Guest is solely responsible for making all arrangements directly with our pony vendor. Learning Tree Farm requires a non-refundable $50 fee payable to the farm upon signing contract with pony vendor. This fee is separate from the payment that guest will pay directly to pony vendor. Learning Tree Farm assumes no responsibility for the services contracted by guest with the pony vendor. We suggest contacting pony vendor early as her schedule books early.
For any reason (personal, weather, other), if given 24 hours prior to your party, we will gladly refund with the exception to non-refundable pony fees. We regret that we cannot refund for cancellations within 24 hours of your event, but you may reschedule your event for a $50 rescheduling fee.
