PLANNING YOUR VISIT TO THE BUTTON FARM
Please look through these frequently asked questions and answers and we’ll see you at the farm!
Q: What Should I Expect?
A: You will be visiting a 40-acre farm in a 6,000 acre park. Expect to see wildlife, historical landscapes and to have an out of doors experience. All of our exhibits and programs encourage hands-on participation. Be prepared to get involved, try something new and challenge yourself.
Q: What Should I Bring?
A: Dress comfortably and casually. Wear attire appropriate for the weather conditions as all of our public facilities are open to the elements. Wear comfortable shoes (no heels) as you will be walking on bare ground and grass. If you have allergies or medical concerns remember to bring all necessary medications. Those with potentially life threatening health conditions should apprise our staff of your needs prior to arriving at our site. Many visitors like bringing their cameras to capture the day’s events.
Q: What Shouldn’t I Bring?
A: Do not bring any loose-fitting jewelry, expensive accessories, items of great value that might get lost. Valuables should be left at home or locked inside of your vehicle. Pets (with the exception of seeing eye dogs) are prohibited. As we are located inside Seneca Creek State Park, we are a “Leave No Trace” facility and we do not have trash receptacles of any kind. All disposable products (trash etc.) you bring in must be carried out with you when you leave. Please bring the necessary garbage bags, etc. you will need to carry your trash.
Q: Can I Camp at Button Farm?
A: Yes! We have two camp sites on the farm for small groups of up to twelve people. Pitch your tents and enjoy the peace and quiet of the farm or use the site as a great base camp for exploring the surrounding Seneca Creek State Park, including over twenty miles of fantastic trails. You can book your camping stay at Button Farm through our friends at Hipcamp. Larger groups wishing to stay at the farm should contact us directly for information on booking events at firstname.lastname@example.org (place “Event Booking” in the subject line).
