Our General Farm Policies

We do not allow outside beverages. However, we do permit one sealed bottle of water per person. We have cold bottled water and drinks for purchase around the grounds. Cooler & cooler bags are NOT permitted inside Barton Hill Farms.

We allow trained service animals only. We are animal lovers ourselves. However, as all good farmers know, not all children play well with dogs, and not all dogs play well with children. In compliance with ADA policies, we do reserve the right to ask the owner of a service animal to remove the animal if: 1) it is out of control or barking at other guests, and 2) if it is not “housebroken.” Animals may NOT be left inside owner’s vehicles or tied up outside our gates. Our staff is not required nor expected to provide care, food, nor water to any service animal. Relevant service animal information, including physical address, contact information, and breed of animal will be logged at the gates.

We do not allow coolers of any kind (hard nor soft sided) to be brought into Barton Hill Farms.

Outside alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted. We have beer, cider, and wine for purchase around the grounds. We ID anyone under 40, who wishes to purchase alcohol. Barton Hill Farms is a fully licensed beer and wine retailer through the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC), which dictates that all alcohol must be purchased on-premise.

Any bags, strollers, purses, etc. brought into the farm may be subjected to inspection by a uniformed law enforcement officer. Please, do not attempt to smuggle in beverages, or we will sic our goats on you.

Any child under the age of 16 years old MUST be accompanied by an adult.

For safety and health purposes, smoking and vaping (this includes e-cigarettes) are NOT permitted anywhere on the farm, including in our parking lot.

We welcome photographers, both professional and amateur, to visit Barton Hill Farms for photoshoots during our festival days. At other times of the year, special written permission must be received from us for you to have access. A few special rules need to be followed. General Admission is required for photographers and clients that are 3+ years old. We require that photographers do NOT ask our employees to pose or stop their work. Please, ask permission from staff members before taking photos of them. Get signed permission from guests before taking their photo. Charging fees and soliciting will not be tolerated. All social media and online references to our farm (Barton Hill Farms) will be subjected to farm owner’s approval. No “pet pictures – see our Animals policy above.”

Tip for brides: Brides, please keep in mind this is a working farm (with dirt and insects).
