Your safety is our biggest priority. You deserve to ride where it is safe, where you know that your vehicle will still be there when you return and that you are okay to head out on your own. For this reason, Northern Farm has very strict access and exit procedures along with guards on all perimeters around the farm and in the parking lot. We still do not recommend leaving your bike on the back of your vehicle while having a coffee, but you are safe at Northern Farm.
