The Farm is now closed for the 2018 Season

Another season has come and gone, and we are ready to buckle down and begin planning for next season! Most of the animals have returned home, to their farms. The sheep, however, continue to roam the pastures (though not for much longer – the temperature is dropping quickly!), and the farm will remain home to our chickens and ducks. Although the museum is closed for the season, we do hold several events throughout the Winter. If you would like to stay in the loop of upcoming news and events, sign up for our newsletter. You will find a newsletter signup near the bottom of this page. Read More →

Feed the Farm, Enrich the Community

“Feed the Farm” is back; our annual crowdsourcing campaign to help us to maintain our farm animal program.  Now in its 4th year, this campaign goes a long way toward covering our animal program costs; feed, transport, bedding, housing and other essential care.  The Farm believes in the value of keeping farm animals in the public eye; for education, interpretation and enjoyment. We also believe in the importance of spreading awareness of these animals’ natural behaviours and personalities.  This is made possible be ensuring access to adequate space and fresh air, play and stimulation, comfortable quarters, optimum nutrition and the company of their own kind. Funds raised through this program enable us to continue to build this awareness.  All proceeds directly support our animal program and invest in its betterment.  Click here to visit our  Read More →
