Wishing everyone an amazing 2018!
Thank you so much for making our farmily part of your family! All the critters are keeping warm and enjoying these days as they get longer. Nothing like some warm and fuzzy animals to put smiles on faces and inspire us to look forward to spring on the farm!

The MINI FARM ... yes... we can bring the critters to your party at home! A YYC favourite... the MINI farm comes to visit you year round... it can be set up in your garage if the weather outside is too cool or snowy!!! A Calgary's Child Parent's Choice winner!
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 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.
