Please visit only when healthy. If you have a fever or other symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to someone who tested positive, please stay home.

General Farm Policies

While we love dogs as much as you do, we cannot allow animals of any kind onto the farm for the health and safety of our guests and in accordance with federal and state regulations. Florida food safety regulations prohibit any animals from entering a field that will be harvested for the consumption of fresh produce. Please see question 25 regarding service animals in the ada resource. Thank you for your patience and understanding. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Exclusion of Service Animals

When can service animals be excluded? A: The ADA does not require covered entities to modify policies, practices, or procedures if it would “fundamentally alter” the nature of the goods, services, programs, or activities provided to the public. Nor does it overrule legitimate safety requirements. If admitting service animals would fundamentally alter the nature of a service or program, service animals may be prohibited. In addition, if a particular service animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it, or if it is not housebroken, that animal may be excluded.

We do not allow outside food or drink. This includes coolers filled with any type of beverage, any alcohol, and catered meals. We do allow cake for birthdays if arranged with the farm in advance. You are welcome to bring bottled water.

We do not allow coolers of any kind (hard nor soft-sided) to be brought into Amber Brooke Farms.

Outside alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted. We have beer and wine for purchase around the grounds. We ID anyone under 40, who wishes to purchase alcohol. Amber Brooke Farms is a fully licensed beer and wine retailer through the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation which dictates that all alcohol must be purchased on-premise.

For safety and health purposes, smoking and vaping (this includes e-cigarettes) are NOT permitted anywhere on the farm, including in our parking lot.

We welcome photographers, both professional and amateur, to visit Amber Brooke Farms for photoshoots during our festival days. At other times of the year, special written permission must be received from us for you to have access. A few special rules need to be followed. General Admission is required for photographers and clients that are 3+ years old. We require that photographers do NOT ask our employees to pose or stop their work. Please, ask permission from staff members before taking photos of them. Get signed permission from guests before taking their photos. Charging fees and soliciting will not be tolerated. All social media and online references to our farm (Amber Brooke Farms) will be subjected to the farm owner’s approval. No “pet pictures – see our Animals policy above.”

Professional photographers, please review our Professional Photographer Policy here.

Please leave your drones at home. Drone flying is not allowed at Amber Brooke Farms.
