Pets are not allowed on our farm.
We are a food production facility, and local and federal health codes strictly prohibit animals from entering any part of our facility. ADA-compliant guide service animals are welcome on our farm.
What is a service animal?
Under the ADA, a service animal is defined as a dog that has been individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. This means the dog must be trained to take a specific action when needed to assist the person with a disability. The task(s) performed by the dog must be directly related to the person's disability.
Are emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals considered service animals under the ADA?
No. These terms are used to describe animals that provide comfort just by being with a person. Because they have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
