IT'S ALL ABOUT THE EXPERIENCE! Butterfield Acres Children's Farm is THAT kind of place. You know, a real farm environment where you can listen to the sheep munching on their hay, or wiggle your fingers into the curly wool of a newborn lamb, or inspect the hair in a calf's ear. You can feel the warmth of a newly laid egg, or be amazed that cute little pigs can smell so awful! Come for the Harvest Pumpkin Hunts, the Legendary Easter Hunts and a Birthday Party to remember! It's a back-to-basics, appreciate-the-important-real-things-in-life family farm kind of place.
A very Fun Family Farm set up for children and families to experience the many joys of being on the Farm. Lots of close-up animal interactions. Goats, lambs, bunnies, chicks and chickens, turkeys, piglets, horses and ponies, peacocks, ducks and geese, lambs and alpacas, donkeys, emues, cows... one big happy family! Pony rides, tractor and wagon rides, milking, gopher tunnels, giant sandbox, Binky Park, Picnic and Playgrounds. Come for a family visit (plan for about 2 hours) or something more organized like week long Day Camps, Legendary Easter Hunts, Harvest Pumpkin Hunts, Birthday Parties, or Company Parties!
