Breakfast on a Dairy Farm is a unique experience for you and your family to take in the sights and sounds of a modern dairy farm. The dairy farming community will be serving up a hot breakfast including pancakes, sausage, eggs, and an array of drinks (and white and chocolate milk, of course!).
Are you looking to get out of the city for something different and affordable this summer? Hit the country roads and enjoy a free hot breakfast at a family dairy farm only 35 minutes from south Edmonton on July 6 from 8AM-12PM – you’re going to love it!
Bring your bedtime books to life with this hands-on event where the whole family can be farmers. You’ll learn about what the cows eat, where they live, and how well farmers take care of them. Farmers will be around all morning to help answer any questions to have about where your milk comes from.
What to expect at the Breakfast on a Dairy Farm
So many of us have never experienced a dairy farm! There are activities for all ages of kids and their parents, including:
– Face painting
– Balloon artist
– Bouncy cows
– Butter making
– Interactive trailer where kids can be kids! We encourage them to push buttons, pull slides and enjoy the bright images all about dairy cows.
– Tours through the barns
– Seeing adorable calves
– Goody bags for kiddos to play with on the drive home
So hit the country roads, roll the windows down to take in the country smells and make memories your family will never forget. This is your chance to get out of the city and better connect your kids to where their food comes from.
We support an inclusive environment where everyone can have a positive experience. There are quiet areas and smaller tours available for individuals with sensory sensitivities.
- Comfortable shoes that are ok if they get a little dirty and wet.
- There are indoor and outdoor areas, but please dress for the weather.
- Please leave your pets at home.
- Bring your questions!
From Edmonton: Follow Highway AB-2 south to exit 497 (AB-616 E/AB 616 W towards Millet/Mulhurst). Take exit 497. Turn right onto AB-616 W. Travel 11 km. The farm is on the left (south) side of the road. If you hit highway AB-795 you’ve gone too far west.
