  • a mask / face covering (required to enter the Farm Store as per Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health)
  • a cooler & ice packs to transport your purchases home

  • hand sanitizer (we have hand washing areas & hand sanitizer, but for convenience we recommend bringing your own as well)

* Visitors are expected to socially distance while on-site.

** For adults and older children who want to take a quick walk around and enjoy an ice cream cone, plan on 30-60 minutes for your visit. 

We find those with young children and those who visit the Adventure Area spend approximately 1-2 hours for their visit. Longer visits are also welcome.

Visitors are welcome to visit the Demonstration Barn & Main Barn areas for free, but we do appreciate coin / cash contributions to our "Pay What You Can" box at the entrance of the Demonstration Barn.

Goat Pen (approx. May to October)

** Please note the Goat Pen is closed for the Fall/Winter as of early November.  The goats are now housed in our Demonstration Barn.

Visitors are welcome to go in and interact with the goats in their area!

Their pasture pen is located just down from the Demonstration Barn.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.  Young children should be held up in arms.

Be prepared for some nibbles and tugs at clothing, hair, camera straps etc.

When in the pen, and when you are leaving just be sure to latch the gate.... but if the goats escape just let the staff in the store know.  They can be real escape artists....
