This spring we are expecting chicks, piglets, lambs, bunnies, goats kids, baby alpacas and a calf from our cow! These babies will be arriving from April to mid June. We will make announcements of the births on our social media accounts so be sure to follow us there!!
Limited tickets available, we will be restricting the number of guests per session for your safety and enjoyment. Easter activities will take place around the farm. The Easter egg hunt is included in your admission.

How the Easter egg hunt works. Colourful plastic eggs will be scattered down the walking trail through the forest. Participants are encouraged to bring their own basket to use as they collect eggs along the trail. 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 in order to make room for more guests to hunt for eggs.
As a family we have decided that we unfortunately will not be able to offer our sugarbush program for 2021.
We know this is disappointing to all including ourselves. After exploring many different options we just don’t feel with current conditions that’s it’s logistically possible to offer a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests and our staff. Our family will be continuing to produce maple syrup, which will be offered for sale as soon as the weather allows.
We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the farm for an Easter celebration starting March 27th. More details to follow shortly.
It’s been a good start to the new year already. Received the news today that our Farmers’ Market has been nominated for The Ottawa Awards. 2020 was definitely challenging but the support we saw from the people of Ottawa was amazing. To our vendors this would be a huge recognition to all their hard work they have put in over the years to make our market what it was this year. The awards are only voted on by the public so if you feel like saying thanks to our vendors the link below takes you to the voting page and you can vote once a day until January 30th.
We wanted to wish you all the very best of the season and thank all our guests who have attended the farm over the last six weeks. It has been a very different and difficult year but it was certainly nice to see so many familiar and happy faces around this time of year. Today marks the end of our 2020 season and we will regroup in the new year after the provincial lock down and see what’s next for us in 2021.
On another note, a huge shout out again to all our guests that participated in our fill the bucket campaign for the Barhaven food cupboard. Not only once, but twice you helped fill our huge bucket on the tractor with food for local people. Thanks again!
