SCHOOL BOOKINGS are ongoing for our classic Spring Babies Program. There is nothing like hands-on learning in the farm environment. Visit with all the many different farm animals... up close and personal. Have a chance to really touch an udder and see if you can do some milking! A ride through the woods on a giant wagon pulled behind our so-big-and-strong tractor is a highlight, and check out Kim and Lori's new life size Woodland Animals feature along the ride. Children experience first hand so many of the activities they would have, had they grown up on a family farm in Alberta. New this year: two teachers on staff have built our wonderful Nursery Rhyme Park... all sorts of activity centres to explore and reinforce the magic of Nursery Rhymes (which typically involve farm animals which were very much a part of evereday life in the age of nursery rhymes). Nursery Rhyme Park is part of the 2hr Farmyard Program. Our 4 hour program now includes, as part of the Horse Shoe Trail, an array of life-size 2 dimensional of Woodland Animals... kids can even measure themselvesf up against a life-sized moose, or a black bear.... how about a porcupine, or whatelse? (there's 10 in all) Send us an email for more info and a field trip request form: farmfun@ButterfieldAcres.com
CBE teachers.... we are now an 'A' trip so approval can be given by your principal.
FARM CORRAL (our Petting Zoo) bookings for any event (including schools) with children (of any age!!!) Easter, Stampede, Christmas, year round!
