Safety Matters!

We started offering farm tours this year, which is something we’re really excited about. Everybody really enjoys them, but one thing we noticed was that elderly people had difficulty going up the incline by the barn.  To make it safer for everyone (and less muddy!), we put in a sidewalk between the soaproom and the barn.

We chose to put in both a ramp and stairs so that that people had options (handrails will be installed soon).

If you’ve been to our farm, you will have seen the handprints in the concrete at the soaproom and the footprints in the concrete at the barn.

So what do you think I put in the concrete of the new sidewalk??

    I love the path walk that you created so everyone can travel from the soap room to the barn. It’s wonderful!

    This is excellent. And please, say it was hoof prints? That would be perfect for a barn. (Though maybe not comfortable/good for the goats?)

      Nope – not hoof prints. I’m pretty sure the goats wouldn’t mind running through the concrete. LOL
