Old McDonald’s Farm policies and procedures

Online Ticketing: Customers are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance! https://bookeo.com/oldmcdonaldhasafarm .
  • We encourage online ticketing and continue to limit space availability during special events and the fall weekends because we want to provide a positive experience for all of our visitors! We learned last year that people enjoy the farm more when there are no lines!
