Trained Service Animals, which are covered by the ADA, are welcome at Dalton Farms.
Unfortunately, to ensure the safety of our guests, crops, and farm animals, all other animals, including comfort animals or emotional support animals are prohibited.
Service Animal Policy
Service Animals are welcome at Dalton Farms. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Titles II and III, define Service Animals as dogs or miniature horses (although the latter are rare) that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for persons with disabilities. Service Animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task the Service Animal has been trained to do must be directly related to the handler’s or owner’s disability. Animals whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support are not Service Animals as defined under the ADA and therefore are not protected under the ADA. Non-Service Animals will be asked to leave the property.
Upon your arrival, please see a Dalton Farms staff member before entering the grounds with your Service Animal. Below, please find important information regarding Service Animals at Dalton Farms:
- Service Animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered at all times unless these devices interfere with the Service Animal’s work.
- Service Animals not behaving properly will be asked to leave the property. Unacceptable behavior includes: damage or consumption of crops; marking, urinating, or defecating in any area except designated areas; and excessive barking and/or aggressive behavior.
- Service Animals may be restricted to certain areas of the farm for the safety of our crops, livestock, customers, and your Service Animal. Upon your arrival at Dalton Farms, staff will inform you of: the areas that are open to the handler and Service Animal; locations of hand washing stations; areas where the Service Animal can eliminate waste; and Dalton Farms’ policies specific to Service Animals.
