Field Trip Terms and Conditions
Anyone participating in axe throwing, the bell ringer, rock climbing, and ice skating are required to sign a liability waiver. Parent(s) or Court-Appointed Legal Guardian(s) must sign for any participating minor (those under 18 years of age). An adult can sign the waiver for up to 10 miners at a time. When an adult is signing for a minor, the minors name must be listed on the waiver. For field trips, our staff will create a special waiver link for your group. This will allow the group coordinator to see who has signed the waiver. All waivers must be signed before arrival.
A group roster with participants' names including what the attendee paid for must be submitted to our team at the time final headcount is given.
Or a group representative with a group roster must arrive ahead of the group to assist Julian Farm and Orchard with the check-in process.
All field trip reservations require groups to pay in one transaction. The invoice will be created based on group roster head count provided to Julian Farm and Orchard staff two weeks prior to the field trip date. There will be no refunds for no shows.
Any day of add ons will be required to pay full field trip price (no discounts) by credit card.
Invoices must be paid prior to arrival. We offer public schools Net 30 Term with a signed purchase order upon request.
All field trips will receive an invoice for the group via QuickBooks. Julian Farm and Orchard accept checks or credit card with a 4% processing fee.

Day of Itinerary:
Arrival time is scheduled 30-15 minutes before the field trip starts. The field trip will start at the agreed upon start time. Please tell attendees to arrive on time to limit program disruptions.
We typically do the hayride, field trip lesson, and petting zoo as a group. This will take approximately an hour to an hour and a half depending on the group pace.
After these activities are completed, the group will have free time for the remainder time to self-guide themselves around the farm, through the haybale maze, play with the yard games, and have lunch.
Our gift shop can be opened during this time if requested during the booking process.
We kindly ask all attendees to plan on staying until all structured activities are completed to limit disruptions. Anyone wishing to leave early can do so once free time starts.
Julian Farm and Orchard is open to the public Friday-Sunday seasonally. Field trips that take place on days we are open to the public are welcome to stay and hang out after the program concludes. Those wishing to participate in our other activities offered will have to pay the full price of our activity packages. General admission will not be charged on the upgrade. Please see our website or ask our staff about current activity offerings.
