At Cornell Farm we acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals. We actively endeavor to create an environment that is inclusive and embracing of all. It’s our goal to continue to build an ever-expanding community of diverse friends and neighbors that call our nursery and café home.
Your whole family is welcome to visit Cornell Farm, including your pets!
Please keep these guidelines in mind:
- All pets must be kept on a leash or in a carrier while on the premises.
- Pets must be supervised at all times.
- Please do not allow dogs to bark repeatedly, especially on the Café porch or at the chickens.
- Clean up after your pet. We have a pet accident response kit available at Check Out. Please let an employee know if you need it.
- Please note that pets are not allowed in the farmhouse due to food service laws, this includes therapy and companion animals. Well-behaved pets may accompany you in the Garden Pavilion or on the porch.
- If your pet is stressed, please take them home.
Working service animals are welcome to accompany guests wherever they are needed.
Thank you for your consideration in helping to keep Cornell Farm a pet-friendly place.

The first ADA parking space is near the front entrance on Barnes Rd. It is close to our Patio Gazebo, which is full of outdoor color and shade plants. It has level access.
Our second ADA parking space is located at the crest of the hill behind the Café.
