Weather

 - Weather - 


Please keep weather conditions in mind when picking a site for the farm to set up.


 If a shady treed area can be provided on warm days, and a sheltered area on windy days, the animals will be more relaxed and children will have a better experience with animal interaction.


WET- Nurseries will still go ahead in wet weather.  Myuna Farm mobile Ark bring wet weather covers (3x3m) to all events. However if the site has a garage or undercover area this may be better suited and the nursery can be setup on concrete.

 

Please advise us if we will be setup on concrete or astro turf as we will bring ground cover with us.


EXTREME HEAT - Myuna Farm Mobile Ark reserve the right to cancel the event on days of extreme high temperatures. If this happens deposit will be refunded.  


In days of high temperature you can help by filling some recycled  bottles with water and freezing them.  The farmer will place the bottles in the pen for the animals to relax on.





 

Site Requirements

 - Site Requirements - 


  • Flat area to set up, Slightly sloping site is ok.


  • Grassed/mulched area is best, but can set up on concrete. 


  • Access for a car and trailer, close as possible to setup site, with a clear path no more than 20 meters for equipment to easily be moved from trailer to site.


  • Access to Fresh Water  (if not available please advise prior to event day)


  • Larger events - Parking  for car and trailer next to set up yard (staff need to be able to put animals back in trailer for rest breaks etc,)


  • Consider the amount of equipment required  to be carried into the site when choosing an area for the set up of the farm, long or difficult distances can encroach on the "play" time with the animals


  • Cleanup - staff will give a quick sweep after when setup on concrete/fake grass but please be advised there will be a slight mess left behind.


  • Please advise if site is on concrete or astro turf.  We can pack fake grass for the added comfort of the animals and it will help keep the area clean


  • Arrival time is half an hour before booked time. Please ensure site requirements are adhered to
