Back when I was growing up, spending a lot of money on birthday parties was not the norm. Birthdays were typically a family time at home or if it was a milestone birthday, we might even have been able to invite a limited number of friends and play some games in the yard.
Boy has that changed! I am constantly amazed at the amount of money that gets spent on birthday parties these days even when it is for a baby turning 1 who will never remember any of it. It seems that having a party at a kid’s venue with all their friends is now the norm but that is good for those in Agritourism!
The reality is that most Agritourism venues with heavy seasonal crowds don’t have enough indoor bathroom facilities to keep up with the demand. That means we have to resort to the dreaded Porta-Potty. This is the worst nightmare of germaphobes’. Your guests may be on their way to having an outstanding customer experience (see our blog post from last week) and a dirty bathroom or Porta-Potty may be the lasting memory that sticks longer that all the great experiences they had that day. Or if their 5-year-old decides they have to go NOW and there are long lines for all the bathrooms.
