All farm animals are on a carefully structured diet. Introducing outside food can cause illness and even death to the animal. Approved animal feed is available for purchase from the Farm. Do not feed animals plastic bags or foreign objects. For good health and hygiene always properly wash your hands after feeding.

Use a flat hand when feeding the animals. Animals approved for hand-feeding include goats, sheep, ducks, llamas and alpacas. Do NOT feed horses, donkeys, pigs or rabbits from your hand as these animals can and will bite.

HANDWASHING AND SANITATION

Animals and bugs may naturally carry diseases that can make you sick. These are known as zoonotic diseases. Some of the most common zoontic diseases include:

  • Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, which you can get from a tick bite.
  • West Nile virus, which you can get from a mosquito bite.
  • Salmonella infection, which you can get after handling a baby chick, chicken, duck, turtle or snake.
  • E. coli infection, which you can catch if you touch areas in a petting zoo or animal exhibit where some of the animals are infected.

Thankfully, there are things you can do to protect yourself and your children from zoonotic diseases.

  • Always wash your hands for 20 seconds after being around animals.
  • Hand-washing stations can be found at the entrance/exit-ways and at nearby restroom facilities. Additionally, hand-sanitizing stations can be located throughout the farm.
  • Properly sanitize any personal belongings such as shoes, strollers and clothing to kill germs that might have been transferred through contact with animals, their bedding or surroundings.
  • Protect yourself from bug bites by using repellent on skin not covered by clothes or shoes.
  • Always check for ticks after you’ve been outdoors.

It’s important to remember that anyone can become sick from a zoonotic disease, including healthy people. However, some people may be more at risk than others and should take steps to protect themselves or family members. These people are more likely than others to get really sick, and even die, from infection with certain diseases. These groups of people include:

  • Children younger than 5
  • Adults older than 65
  • People with weakened immune systems
