Barnyard Bash

Pigs, goats, bunnies and pony rides!

Photos by Jessica Friend

Many people know Good Neighbors Farmers Market in Oviedo for its weekend farmers market and petting zoo. What most people don’t know is that this extremely well-maintained farm is also available for private birthday party rentals. A farm-themed celebration is a lot of fun for all ages and both genders. The parties last 2.5 hours and cost $10 per child and $5 per adult. The cost includes an hourlong guided tour through the farm, where guests can hold baby bunnies, hunt for chicken eggs in the coop, interact with baby goats, and feed all the animals on the farm. The rest of the time, guests can play on the playground and bring in their own farm feast to enjoy while sitting at the picnic tables.

Want more? There are a few upgrades from the basic party package, such as: 

  • Root beer-making: Kids get to mix all the ingredients into a bucket of dry ice for a great hands-on activity. While guests move on to the farm tour, the root beer is bottled and delivered at mealtime in an adorable vintage tub of ice.
  • Que the ponies: What’s a farm-themed party without a pony ride? I recommend contacting Winter Park Pony Parties (321-439-0773). These aren’t your average ponies! They are dressed up for the occasion with ribbons, costumes and even sparkly hoof polish! They can be brought to most outdoor party locations throughout Central Florida. Please note that Good Neighbors Farm doesn’t currently offer pony rides.
  • Barn package: If you’re worried about an outdoor party, no worries; you can rent out the barn complete with rolled bales of hay and haystack seating. Haystack couch, anyone?

Need help with decor and custom accents? All the decorations, from the hay-filled metal bucket centerpieces with farm-animal cutouts to the corn-filled mason jar flower vases, were created by Alisha Champ, owner of Consider Any Thing Done, LLC. She’s a pro at kids birthday party planning, decorating and coordinating, in addition to anything else a busy mom may need done. Oh, Alisha also made the birthday girl’s tutu to match the party patterns. I told you she can do anything!

There are a few clever ideas that you should feel free to steal. Name the drink table/area the “Watering Hole,” put up signs to “pig out” near the food table, and prominently display a wheelbarrow at the entrance for guests to place their gifts into (and it makes for a very easy way to get them all back to your car!).
