What we Provide

Tables, chairs, eating ware, a way to keep hot food hot if necessary and purchased through Barstow's, a point person available for your entire event.

Parties should be fun! But first let’s lay out the info so you have it all up front!

We leave the decorating and the shenanigans up to you! Please bring your own decorations, tape, and whatever else you may need. Everything must go home with you or be disposed of at the end of the event.

Because we are a public food service facility, no outside food or drink that has been prepared in a non-commercial kitchen is permitted on the premises. If it is consumed on our property and makes someone sick, it is us who is on the hook, whether we made it here or not! Yikes! Please consider ordering your birthday cake, cupcakes, party platters, picnic salads, or lunch for your porch gathering with Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery! We offer a variety of drinks – milk, juice, fresh squeezed lemonade - as well. The only drinks you are permitted to bring with you from outside are sealed beverages like juice, beer, or unopened bottles of wine.

You have full access to the porch for the time it is reserved. Please factor in 30 minutes of both porch set up and porch clean up in your reservation cost. Parties may only be scheduled during Barstow’s regular open hours. Because Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery will be open during your event, the only space we are able to offer for parties is our outdoor covered porch. Barstow’s staff will carry on with the party and tour rain or shine. Should the weather be incompatible with your event and you decide to cancel, only the porch reservation fee and tour cost will be waived – prepared food will still need to be paid for.

Phew, that’s all the rules and info we have! We strive to be as accommodating and flexible as possible, so if you don’t see what you need or have an idea of how to make your party even more fun and stress free – let. us. know! We are always willing to work with you to make your event just as you picture it!
