Birthday Party FAQs

When can I schedule our birthday party?  Party times are available on Saturdays starting at 10am, 1pm or 4pm.  Parties are two hours long, please come up to a 1/2 hour early for set up and stay up to 1/2 hour for clean up.  

How many children can attend?  You are welcome to book your party for as many children as you like.  Up to 15 participating children are included in the price, and additional kids are $10 each.  We'll settle up on the day depending on final attendance.  Of course, infants don't count toward the 15.

What if it rains/is lousy weather?  Please come dressed for the weather.   If it is muddy and wet, please wear boots to the farm.   Animals are under cover so the show can still go on!  If heavier rain, activities can go on full steam ahead inside.

What is the general plan for the party?  We have fun visiting with the farm animals first.  After washing hands, we proceed to do other fun activities and games.  The party ends with cake and drinks.

Can we bring our own food and drinks?  Yes, beer and wine are ok too.  Pizza can be delivered from Papa Johns (Governors Village) or Johnny's Pizza (on High House Rd. in Cary)

What is provided?  We provide farm-themed cups, plates, forks and napkins and drinking water for the children participating.  If you have adults eating and drinking, please bring a cooler with drinks and party ware for them.  

What animals are available to meet?  We have a mini-horse "Rosie Moonpie," miniature llamas, pigs, goats, sheep, chickens, ducks, a turkey, and cute bunny rabbits.  The children will have a blast petting and feeding the animals!

What decorations can I bring?  The choice is yours.  We have picnic tables and you are welcome to cover them with tablecloths.  If you do bring balloons and decorations, please bring string, tape, or whatever you may need.  Please no confetti or sequin table decorations that tend to blow everywhere.

What address should I include on my party invitations?

Sun Star Farm

2092 Marthas Chapel Rd.

Apex, Nc 27523

(Please drive past the log cabin and red barns to the farm house.  You'll see signs!)

Will wheelchairs, walkers, strollers work?  Is it far to the farm animals?

The party is behind our school building with handicap access and bathrooms.  Our driveway is concrete.  From the party area, it is about 100 feet on grass to "Too Short Stables." If it is very muddy, we can make a plan to ensure everyone is part of the fun.  Please notify us in advance of guests with mobility issues so we can best prepare.
