Toddler Time • SEEDS / May 29th

10am-1pm

This weeks theme is SEEDS

Spring is the perfect time to teach little ones about plant life.

We will have some unstructured activities available around the the farm focused on teaching kids about seeds in a hands-on way. These activities are perfect for fine motor development as well!

It is always fun to do some seed explorations with kids. They will love pulling off the seeds and exploring their shape, colour, sizes and discovering their purpose. They are welcome to use a magnifying glass and tweezers to explored the seeds even further.

Come and see all the farm animals, we have brand new baby lambs, take a walk in the woods, feed to goats, play at the sensory tables and in the games field, bring a picnic lunch and then head home just in time for a nap or quiet afternoon.

This is not a structured program, we encourage you to let your little one take the lead and let them decide how they want to spend their time at the farm. Slow down and let them explore the farm at their own pace.

Toddler time is an exclusive time slot for toddlers (age 0-6) and their Moms, Dads and caregivers. $6 admission (infants under 1 are free)

We also have lots of FREE parking. *All children must be supervised at all times.* #thelogfarm #seeds

Toddler Time

Wednesday May 22nd • Birds and Nests 🐦

As Spring is in full swing, we have really noticed the birds out and about. Every year we have lots of barn swallow families nesting in our barns! We encourage you to bring your binoculars this week so your little ones can try to spot some birds around the farm. It’s so exciting to witness nesting and new life. Birds will gather twigs, grass, leaves, moss, mud and even small pieces of thread to build their nests. We will have a table set up with these materials for the little ones to try to build a nest just like the birds, they can stack and weave them and discover how hard it is and see how much work goes into building a nest. There will be multiple bird themed sensory tables to explore as well. At the farm we have lots of chickens and ducks out for viewing.

Every week during toddler time you will get to see all the farm animals, feed the goats, take a walk in the woods out to our natural pond and spot the herons in their nests. Bring a picnic lunch or snacks and spend some time in our games field playing.

This is not a structured program, we encourage you to let your little one take the lead and let them decide how they want to spend their time at the farm. Slow down and let them explore the farm at their own pace.

Toddler time is an exclusive time slot for toddlers (age 0-6) and their Moms, Dads and caregivers.

Sheep Shearing Demonstration

Our regular season kicks off May 11th 2019.

The farm will be open every weekend from May 11th to October 27th.

The first Saturday May 11th we will be having our sheep shearing demonstrations from 10am-2pm. Along with our first Farmers Market of 2019

Shearing a sheep is when we cut and remove the wool from a sheep. Sheep need to be sheared because they do not shed their wool. Most breeds of sheep are sheared only once a year. Shearing does not hurt the sheep. It is just like getting a haircut. Shearing the sheep keeps them cooler in hot weather.

Mark your calendars for this once a year event, there will be a general discussion of sheep, wool, and sheep handling. Please drop by to enjoy the show and ask questions.

Easter At The Log Farm

Come celebrate Easter on the farm

Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Monday from 10am-3pm. Easter activities will take place around the farm. The Easter egg hunt and tractor drawn wagon ride are included with your $6 admission.

Easter weekend Activities:

Tractor drawn wagon ride

Easter egg hunt in the forest

Bunnies and Lambs

Farm Animals

Giant hay play

Pioneer Homestead

How the Easter egg hunt works. At designated times (sign up sheets will be available at the farm upon arrival) Children will line up at the Easter egg hunt location. Before the hunt begins our staff will scatter colourful plastic eggs down the walking trail through the forest. As this can be very exciting we ask that parents please hold on to your children and wait for the Farmer to ring the bell to start the hunt. On the farmers command, participants will run to collect eggs. Please remember that it is not a race and it doesn’t matter how many eggs you collect, the eggs that you have gathered are then turned in and exchanged for an Easter treat. Once you have collected your eggs and received your treat we ask that you clear the area so that we can prepare for the next hunt. Although a basket is not necessary, you may bring your own basket for collecting eggs.
