Butterfield Acres: Farm Fun in Calgary

My children love animals and extremely intrigued with farm life! Living in a city, places like Butterfield Acres provide the perfect opportunity for children to not just experience life at the farm but also learn how to respect and take care of animals.

Spring, Summer and Fall are all exciting times to visit Butterfield Acres because the farm changes with different seasons. In the winters and actually all year round, you can also have the farm visit you! Butterfield Acres brings its petting zoos to you for birthdays, parties and fun gatherings.

The highlight of the farm for the children are all the animals and my children loved petting them!

After getting off the wagon ride, the kids loved running in the Nursery Rhyme Park, which is a beautiful celebration of well-loved nursery rhymes.

There is so much to see and do at Butterfield Acres that it can be difficult to cover it all in a day. We were grateful for our annual memberships to return to the farm again.

The best part is that Butterfield Acres is not too far from the city since Calgary has grown and now the farm neighbors right next to the Rocky Ridge neighborhood of Calgary. Do check out Butterfield Acres for fun visits with your children and also their day camps and birthday packages.
