1. Will I get bored at a MeTreat?  I am not used to having "nothing" to do.

2. I'm sort of shy.  Will I have to talk with other people?

The only times we will all be together is at the beginning and end of our time.  During those gatherings, I will ask a few simple questions (like your name and at a high level what you'd like to get out of the day) so we can know who we are sharing space with.   I also give everyone a free pass from feeling the need to do small talk if you cross paths with anyone.  This is a MeTreat and everyone can shed the "social graces" of being with others or solving others' questions or any of that.  I will offer lunch for you to eat with others or take to your favorite spot on the farm.  It's glorious if you're shy and a fun chance to just be by yourself even if you're not.

3.  Can I come to a MeTreat with some of my friends?

Well, you could....but I would recommend you consider coming on different dates.  It would be easy for you to turn the day into chit chat with each other and not give you a chance for your own retreat.  If you wanted to come to the farm together, maybe consider a long dinner with the alpacas?

4.  What will we eat?

For breakfast, we'll have farm fresh (very fresh) eggs, sausage or bacon, fruit, coffee, and juice.  For lunch, we'll have a salad bar (including chicken).  For snack, we'll have fruit, nuts, some sort of salty, and tea.  Finally, please bring your own water bottle, but we will have cold well water that is delicious for refills.

5.  What should I wear?

Clothes that can get dirty, especially sneakers/boots!  (There is no red carpet anywhere around here.  LOL)  We will be outdoors 95% of the time, so dress accordingly. 

6.  What about if it rains?

Our plants will be happy.  Seriously, maybe you'll want to dance in the rain??  We have a tin roof on our barn and a swinging bed on our Porch of Goodness that are glorious places to be during rain.  We will also make sure to have an indoor space available. If you'd prefer to reschedule, I understand.

7.  What should I bring?  

A mask & water bottle.  Must have a waiver and emergency info (especially allergies).  Optional: small pillow, blanket/thick towel for sitting on the ground, book, journal, eno (though we have several here)

8.  What COVID precautions are you taking?

We will wear masks whenever we are close together.  I ask if you've been around anyone with COVID or experiencing any symptoms that you please reschedule.  There are hand sanitizers in several places around the farm.  And the dogs have to wipe down the tables beofre they get belly rubs.

9.  Will I be able to ride a horse?  

Nope, but we will try to check in with & pet all of the animals (including the horses) that we can.  Our horses are rescues and are still not great with riding.  Better to just enjoy petting their noses.

10.  What if I don't want to leave?

There are hammocks for the woods.  You can hide out as long as you need to.  : )
