See you next June!



Walk, grunt, squeak and squawk with the animals! Welcome to the Hands on Farm, Comox's very own petting zoo for animal lovers of all ages located at beautiful Filberg Park & Lodge, Stay tuned as we finalize the animals who will take up residence at Hotel HOF!

*Occasionally some animals don't get along with other animals in the farm. So although we always hope to have the animals as advertised it's possible that they may not be there. Please call the Hands on Farm at 250-339-FARM if you want to know what animals are guests with us. All animals are adopted or returned to their owners at the end of the summer.
