Hours and Admission and Farm Safety Rules 

What weekdays are open in October?

OPEN THIS WEEK:   CLOSED WED OCT 20 (sorry!)  OPEN Thurs/Fri 10-2pm


We are OUTDOORS  in the FRESH AIR, so we’ve got minimal restrictions AS LONG AS  everyone is smart about social distancing and handwashing (both BEFORE and AFTER  every pen/activity).

Masks are required only for PONY RIDES (riders over 2 and the walk-along-beside parent) because we can’t social distance.

TRACTOR RIDES:   we are socially distancing families. Masks required.

WASHROOM (indoor space). Mask required.

Adult & child masks for sale (handmade by mom Dawna, or disposable).

Other than that, we are doing our best for a ‘near normal’ fall!!!  Or as normal as it can be with a crew of baby piglets !

If you love animals, here are some other things to think about!   We are always able to bring animals out TO you at home when that works better for you.  You can book a MINI farm, or UNICORN rides!   Check out our We-Come-To- You tab at the top of this web page.

For all the latest ideas for fun and goings on at Butterfield Acres, keep an eye on our social media… we have all the usual: Instagram, Face Book, and  we have a newsletter (the Grazette).  Lots of cute baby pics and video clips.  If you’ve got any cute ones you’d love to share, send them along to us for consideration…. we love to see the talent in our ‘farmily’!
