Collingwood Children's Farm

I am a world traveller who likes to learn new places and faces, wander with my man wherever the wind blows, and bring my three young adventurers along for the ride. I also love a good coffee.

I milked an actual cow here and so can any other interested visitor to the Collingwood Children's Farm. I've never had an opportunity to do this before at any farm I've visited.

It was easy, even for the shortest visitors.  Moreover, it was an earthy deepening experience.



Nearly all the animals here are classified as rare breeds. There are beautiful peafowl mixing in with the people, especially near the picnic tables.  

The prettiest goats with long ears graze in an unlocked pasture. We fed them with supervision.  

Large varieties of chickens made for fun comparison. I liked the adorable little silky chickens, but they're all interesting.

My kids were supremely delighted over all the animals, along with everyone else.

Collingwood Children's Farm has been around a long time, opening its doors as a children's farm in 1979.  The land has been farmed since 1836. 

This is a sweet, fun place to take kids, especially kinetic learners. Adults can appreciate the earth in all her pastoral glory. Open every day with pony and hay rides available on select days. There's a farmer's market also. Click here for more details.
