Havens Petting Farm




What are your hours of operation?

The Farm is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., April through October.  We are closed on the Farm November through March.  Since we close at 5:00 p.m., our last admissions are accepted no later than 4:30 p.m.


What is the cost of Admission?

2024 Season: Admission cost is $8.00/person includes Petting Farm and Corn Box & Hay Tunnel; under 24 months is FREE.

Horse Rides ($5), Wagon Rides ($2) and Animal Food ($1-$5) are available at an additional cost.  Horse Rides and Wagon Rides are typically given on the hour and subject to weather conditions and staff availability.


Do you have a Season Pass?

No.  We do not have a season pass, however because we have many return guests throughout the season, we do offer a punch card.  After 10 admissions, you get 1 admission FREE.  There is no expiration date on the punch card so it is good to use the following year!


What type of payment do you accept?

We accept Cash or Credit/Debit cards.  There is a $5.00 minimum charge when using a credit card.


Can I purchase tickets on line?

No.  All tickets are purchased at the Farm.


Are Gift Cards available?

Yes.  We have gift cards in any denomination available.  Gift cards can be purchased at the Farm during our hours of operation or by calling us at 608-513-5816.  Gift cards orders over the phone can be mailed.  Gift cards expire 1 year from date of purchase.


What type of clothing/footwear is needed?

The buildings are not heated during the cooler weather, so you will want to dress accordingly.  Also, open-toed shoes are not recommended, especially if you are entering the animal pens.


Is food allowed to be brought to the Farm?

Yes.  You are welcome to bring in snacks/non-alcoholic beverages or a picnic lunch.  We have several picnic tables on the grounds, or a blanket works, too!


Can we bring food from home to feed the animals?

No.  It is important that we manage what/how much food the animals are given and they can only eat what we provide.  Food for the animals is available for sale at the Farm.


Do I have to accompany my children?

Yes.  All guests under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.  We have staff available to help with the animals and answer questions, but we do not provide childcare.


What kind of animals are on the farm?

We have a wide variety of animals and birds – sheep, goats, miniature pigs, cows, llamas, alpacas, donkeys, horses, chicks, ducks, bunnies, cats, etc.  Some animals you can pet and hold.  For some animals, you can enter the pens with them.  Please check out our Facebook page for pictures!


Are strollers/wheel chairs allowed in the barn?

Yes.  The aisles in the barn are wide enough to allow for strollers or wheel chairs.  The front part of the barn is gravel and may be harder to maneuver through.  The back part of the barn is cement.  Outside is mostly grass or gravel.


Are pets allowed?

No.  Your pets are not allowed on the farm and should remain in your vehicle if they are traveling with you.  Your pet may agitate our animals and interfere with any animals that are outside a pen.  Our animals would be unfamiliar with your pet, and it could be considered a predator.  Also, since we allow guests in some of the pens, outside animals may cause a disturbance that could jeopardize the safety of our guests.  For these reasons we also restrict the admission of emotional support or service animals.  Please refer to the last sentence in the “Prohibited discrimination” section of: https://dwd.wisconsin.gov/er/civilrights/discrimination/publicaccommodation.htm#Frequently%20Asked%20Questions.   If you would like to visit the farm with your service animal, we would love to work with you and arrange to have you visit before or after our open hours.


Is smoking or vaping allowed?

No, smoking or vaping is not allowed in the barns or guest areas.


Are restrooms available at the Farm?

Yes.  Portable toilets are available for guests to use.  There are several hand wash stations available, also.


How long does it take to go through the barn?

That is very personal, depending on your interests and preferences.  The length of time varies from 30 minutes to 4 hours J.  For the most part, many people stay about 1-2 hrs.


Can we celebrate a birthday or other events at the Farm?

Yes – we have several options available for personal events on the Farm.  Please contact us for details.


Do you have a weight restriction on Pony Rides?

At this time we use our Draft Horses for the pony rides.  They are able to handle weights up to 250 lbs.  These rides are outside, so we do suspend rides during rain/snow or high heat.  Rides are usually done on the hour and tickets can be purchased at the front admission gate.


Do you close during rain/snow/high heat?

Since much of the Farm is indoors, we usually do not close during rain/light snowfalls, however outdoor activities would be limited during these types of weather.  If the heat index gets above 90 degrees, we do limit interactions with the animals in order to keep them comfortable.  Heat indexes over 100 degrees may cause closures due to the stress on the animals and the staff.  Please check our Facebook page – we try to post as soon as we make the decision to close.  If you are unsure or are traveling a distance, please call us to ensure we are open during inclement weather.

We hope this has helped to answer your questions!

We look forward to having you join us at the Farm!
