Duck Duck Donkey offers mobile petting farm and pony ride services within Southeast Michigan. We are available for birthday parties, picnics, corporate events, church events, family reunions, and other events. We bring the farm experience to you!
Our booking process is extremely simple. Check in with us with your date and time and if we're available we'll get everything settled for your event.
We require a $50 deposit to hold the date and timeframe of your event. This deposit is non-refundable. In the event of extreme weather, for the safety of our employees and animals we may be required to cancel. In this scenario we will refund your deposit.
With the exception of extreme or dangerous weather, we party rain or shine!
PLEASE NOTE: Your event booking is not guaranteed until the deposit is paid. Receiving an invoice does not guarantee your date is booked. Until the deposit is paid, we reserve the right to accept alternate bookings.
On the day of your event we will arrive at a pre-determined time prior to your booking time for setup. Our party petting farm requires roughly 20 feet by 20 feet of space to accommodate the farm (10ft x 10ft) and guest interaction around the farm space. The party petting farm is best for birthday parties and small gatherings of 50 guests or fewer. Extra space around the enclosure allows for comfortable access for your guests and our animals alike.
Our festival and large event petting farm is best suited for public events and larger gatherings. We require a two-hour minimum for our large farm. Our large farm is best held in a space 20 feet by 30 feet.
Pony rides are available as an add-on to our petting farm. Ponies are booked based on the minimum and maximum estimated size of your guests. We can provide ponies for riders of most sizes, from small children to young adults. Each pony will have a dedicated, experienced handler to hand-lead the pony while riders are present. Parents of small children are required to walk alongside to spot the children as they ride.
Please be aware that if your party requires larger ponies for older children, due to the size and weight of the animal, this can sometimes cause damage to lawns in the pony-walk path. We will go over this with you at the time of booking and as always we will do our best to repair any damage left by our larger animals prior to departure.
When our time with you is up, we will clean up and remove larger waste. Some waste, such as goat droppings, are extremely small and will get lost in denser grasses. If we can get to it, we will remove it!
