HARVEST PUMPKIN HUNTS!! ..weekends in October! Tickets MUST be pre-purchased
Best fun in town for your little people... specially designed for children 8 and under. Bring the along aunts, uncles too. Hunt, decorate your special Pumpkin head...and get in your last visits with some amazing farm critters before winter sets in! Tickets for the hunts MUST be PRE-PURCHASED.

For October, (our regular Season Pass Season ended), we are trying a new October PUMPKIN Farm Admission for weekends 10-4pm. Children take a cute pumpkin home with them (but don't do a hunt and decorate). You may visit with the animals, pony rides (for children under 60# run hourly), $13.99/child, $15.99/adult.

PLEASE NOTE: if you would like to do the actual Pumpkin Hunt, you do need to PRE-PURCHASE tickets. October Pumpkin Farm Admission, however, does NOT need to be PRE-paid.

SCHOOL BOOKINGS
are ongoing for our

classic Spring Babies Program. There is nothing like hands-on learning in a real 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 of our 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.
