Some Frequently Asked Questions about Kayben Farms:

- What does the name ‘Kayben’ mean? There aren’t any people named Kay or Ben here. The farm name Kaybenis based on the name of Judy Kolk’s grandparent’s home in Holland; “Eben” (pronounced ay~ben) the Dutch equivalent of Ebenezer, which means “By God’s help we have come this far” (see 1 Samuel 7:12).

Season’s Passes FAQ’s
Q: When can I use my season’s pass? A: Any day that we are open in 2017.
Q: Who needs a pass? A: Anyone age 1 and over. If your child will be turning 1 this season, purchase a pass for him/her now while you can get the early bird rate. Ages 1 year require a “tots” pass, and ages 2+ require a regular pass.
Q: Who can use the pass? A: The person who’s name and picture are on the pass Passes are non transferable
Q: Is it worth it? A: Yes! The pass pays for itself in three visits, so if you plan to come out and enjoy yourself more than twice it would be a very economical choice for you. It also gives you the freedom to come out for a couple hours very frequently and not have to pay full price each time!
Q: Will I like it?
A: We sure hope so! If you would like to try it out, you can use the value of the daily admission towards a season’s pass, on the same day. The key here is that you have to buy the season’s pass that same day. And you can use the value of what you paid. For example if you paid $15 to get in to the park, you can put $15 towards a season’s pass if you purchase by the end of the day.
Q: If I buy passes for my family members can grandma come along too?
A: One pass = one person’s admission. If you buy a pass and it says grandma’s name, she can use it. If you buy a guest pass that says ‘Parker guest’ grandma can use it when she is with you. If grandma and grandpa show up holding the same ‘guest’ pass, they still need to buy admission for one of them.
Q: What is a “guest pass” and who can use it?
A: A guest pass may be purchased along with 1 or more season’s passes. Guest Season’s Passes must be linked to a valid named season’s pass holder. A Guest Pass cannot be used by an individual to go into the park on their own; they must be accompanied by a pass holder from the “host” family. Guest pass is $45
Q: Can I buy ‘dayhome’ passes?
A: Yes! We have designed a program specifically for Day Home providers. However, since this is a special offer and not available online, your passes need to be purchased in person or by phone. Please contact us at (403) 995-5509 or at email@example.com and we’ll be happy to serve you.
