How to Make Your Visit to the Farm a Success

  • Don't feed the animals! Our staff and volunteers keep the animals well fed with healthy farm feed. They don't need any treats!
  • Don't touch your eyes or mouth or consume food at the Farm. Wash your hands after your visit. There is soap and water at the Farm and public washrooms at the Filberg Park.
  • Wear closed toed shoes. Animals don't watch where they're stepping which can hurt little toes.
  • Have questions? Ask our friendly Farm staff!

Please note: Our HOF animals may change over the summer. Animals go back their owners for reasons of health, sociability with people or other animals and changing mandates like the impact of avian flu. Animals pictured on the website and marketing materials may not reflect actual animals at the Farm.
