Farm events are fun, relaxed & educational as well. We have a special area in our big barn for unique birthday celebrations.
Our big barn has plenty of room for lots of fun, we offer picnic tables, as well as hay bales for extra special seating. The big barn can accommodate approximately 50 people comfortably.
What we are: We are a working farm. We offer a rare opportunity for those interested in the Norwegian Fjord horses, Irish Dexter cattle, chickens & farm life. A great way of learning about them and celebrating at the same time. We love to share our passion of farming and the horses with you and your guests. Your event can be as simple as cake "out on the farm" with an educational tour or even more special with mini horseback riding lesson for guests and special favors. We are one of the fun things to do in Boise!
We are here to help you create an enjoyable event - not only for your guests, but for you as well - this is a special day and you deserve to enjoy it. Creating a memorable event that bring people back year after year, is our heart's desire for each group that comes to the farm. We offer a casual, relaxed atmosphere that is almost palpable.

We had such a lovely time and so appreciate all the experience offered to my little grandchild and her friends. They had such a good time and Allison is a joy. What patience she showed and I was so glad for her skill with the little girls. I find that I have a real soft spot for "Miss Piggy". A hard working creature who earned every treat that came her way. Thanks so very much for a great day. - Pat
We do need to mention ... We are not a bounce house or a gymnasium. We are a real, working farm. We adore kids and have built part of our family's farm business around them, but we really want you to be able to choose properly. Kids who are unable to control themselves can be dangerous to themselves, the animals and their friends. We know that kids are loud and rambunctious - we love it! There are times around the animals that we need to be calm and loving towards them though.
*Siblings. Yes, we love them too, but we want you to know they are included in your final count. There are lots of great articles addressing siblings and "extra" kids coming un-announced to your event, online. We suggest in your invitations/conversations you note this is a party just for _____ and unfortunately time and finances do not permit siblings or extra friends.
Now that you've picked your package above, you can move onto the rest of the details (please note that alcohol/smoking are not allowed on the premises):
5. Here's a bonus to print: Map/Directions. :) Sometimes GPS takes folks in a different direction, so we've added this in.
