Q. What if my child has severe allergies?
A. We all know how important it is to keep children safe! Every effort has been made to eliminate the possibility of gluten contamination.
We have also taken a number of steps to prevent issues from the big 8 allergens in general and enable allergen avoidance. However, only the individual or parents can know the level of risk involved for their situation. As such, please be aware that for those with multiple allergies, we have allotted special tables for bringing bag snacks/lunches and avoiding unnecessary exposure.
The green picnic tables will be reserved for families and individuals with multiple allergies. These tables are approved for bag lunches. The NC FACES tickets are reserved for these special situations only. Space is limited. ID’s are worn for this purpose and can be easily identified.
Q. Can we access the farm before others?
A. Keep in mind that the farm is literally acres of wide open space growing 35,000 pumpkins, with numerous activities. There are 6 hand washing stations on site, and because we would not hold back play time from anyone, young or old, we have taken a number of precautions. Neither food trucks nor vendors are allowed to serve any gluten.
Other allergens will be clearly listed and food demos will not start until later in the afternoon. These will run until close to closing time. This will allow for plenty of safe play for those facing multiple challenges. However attendance/participation is totally at one’s own risk. We expect every individual, parent, or guardian to exercise proper caution, properly supervise children, maintain safe habits, and use good judgment.
Q. What about the social mixer?
A. This event will be limited space, and therefore invitation only, at Primal Food and Spirits Friday, September 26, 2014 from 6-8pm. As there will be alcoholic beverages involved, it will be only held for those 21 years of age and up. Please email writeztuff97 (at) gmail dot com for more information. This will be a wonderful opportunity for those in the gluten-free community to get to know our special participants, key individuals and sponsors before the event.
We look forward to seeing you!
