Welcome to Butterfield Acres Farm Website

What's happening next at Butterfield Acres?

1. SNEAK-A-PEEK... Sat Mar 17 10-2pm, our annual fund-raiser for:
a) Vets Without Borders: Farmer Megan went to Kenya with VWB last year. This summer, both she and Farmer Brent are on a VWB Tanzanian project.
b) Jaguar Rescue Centre in Costa Rica... these folks do amazing work with rescued
wildlife of all sorts, bringing them back to health, releasing when possible, and giving them a permanent home if not. Last year your donations helped purchase an incubator for the baby sloths and monkeys. Info Tickets

2. LEGENDARY EASTER HUNTS! Runs the 2 weekends leading into Easter: Mar 24 & 25, Good Fri Mar 30, & Sat Mar 31. Designed for the 8 & under crowd: Info Tickets

Butterfield Acres is a Calgary's Child Parent's Choice winner for a reason!

Check out

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:
CBE teachers.... we are now an 'A' trip so approval can be given by your principal.
