Hands on

Daily stuff to see!

Please note, times are approximate due to the farmers heavy work loads but they endeavour to deliver on these times!  Milking always at 1:15 pm

  • A milking demonstration daily at 1:15 pm currently featuring Lima the jersey cow.
  • Maplewood Farm is the home to approximately 200 domestic farm animals and birds so there is always lots to see.
  • Feed the chickens and ducks – birdseed is available for sale on the farm for $3.00 a bag. (while supplies last)
  • Feed the bunnies – bring your own fresh fruits and veggies (See list below)
  • Around 3:30 pm each day the farmers round up our animals as they go from their paddocks back into the barn for the night.
