Coppal House Farm Photography Policy & Agreement

 

Coppal House Farm is pleased that you are interested in using our farm as a beautiful backdrop for your photos. We ask that you tag us in any photos on social media and to please use our hashtag #coppalhousefarm and #nhsunflower.

 

Coppal House Farm is a small family owned, working farm that is also our home, therefore farm operations will occur both during and outside of public access hours. There may be mud, dirt, chickens, and definitely many bees, butterflies, birds and other insects about. As a working farm that incurs expenses both for staff and operation, it has become necessary to instill a photography policy and site fee.

 

If you are a professional photographer or will be using a professional photographer (plan to make money from your photos, accepting money for your photography, paying money for a photographer to photograph you on our farm or taking photos for a special occasion) please reference the Professional Photographer Section.

 

NON-PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY | we consider any photos taken with cell phones or simple cameras for personal use and are allowed during regular advertised business hours and the special sunrise events with no additional site fee.
