• Butterfield Acres Staff with Spring Kids

We come to you!

We’ll help you make your event memorable by bringing our animals out to visit with the special people in your life.  There’s something magic about being in the presence of animals, and memories are made with each encounter.

Our animals have done some interesting things…. television appearances, been the ‘prize’ for multimillion-dollar fundraisers, goat yoga, ‘birthday presents’ for many special folks, nativity scenes, been part of marriage proposals and weddings, highschool de-stress visits, Winter Carnivals, Stampede celebrations, Easter Mall visits, Stampede photo shoots,…..the list is quite amazing.  And we travel! We’d love to join you too!

See a variety of choices below:

Because of the current COVID situation, we are expecting to be able to bring animals out to visit within the legislation set out by Alberta Health AT THE TIME OF OUR VISIT. 

It’s a very good idea to check back with us just before your event in case there are last minute changes to Alberta Health regulations!

For the latest updates, check Alberta.ca/covid and look for “outdoor gatherings”. Be sure to press F5 on your keyboard to ensure latest update.

Quote from Alberta Health a/o Mar 19 2021:  

  • Outdoor social gatherings are limited to 10 people maximum and must not have an indoor component.
  • Backyard gatherings that require movement in/out of homes are not permitted.
  • Attendees should remain distanced at all times and follow all public health measures.

At THIS point in time, social distancing is important, as well as the number of people allowed to gather ….total MAXIMUM 10: one would be our staff (one with each unit), another will be your adult walking alongside the pony holding the children on if you book the pony/unicorn).  Washing hands immediately BEFORE and AFTER touching animals is important.  All adults (including the one walking beside the pony) and children 2 years and over must wear masks. 

 

After all that….. we’d love to join you!

Specialized Bookings

Let us know what you’d like to do and we’ll help you figure it out! Our staff and animals have been on TV segments. They’ve been amusing ‘presents’ at Retirement and Birthday parties. They’ve been ‘awards’ for employee performance, get-well-soon ‘gifts’ and have helped generate fun and interest at fund-raisers.

They’ve been part of many Christmas and Easter productions. And photo shoots (commercials, Christmas cards, photo ops)… they’ve done many! Goat yoga.  How ’bout Bunny Yoga? Got an idea? We’d love to be part of your fun… but, as Barbaro Coloroso says, it can’t be immoral, illegal, or life-threatening!
