Itinerary

Stop 1

In the mood for sharing food? We’ve recommended one of our favourite country markets in the GTA to grab a bite. On warmer days, we have suggested a farm where you can feed a few animals. Drive time to the second stop is 15 minutes.

Stop 2

Time to make feathered friends and feel like you’re in Disney’s Snow White. We have a few options for both warmer and colder seasons. Drive time to the third stop is 20 minutes.

Stop 3

This stop is the dealer’s choice! We’ve recommended another fabulous farm, a quick walk to historic ruins and a few tasty lunch options. Drive time to the fourth stop is 15 minutes. 

Stop 4

Your fourth stop is a very special place. With so many rescued animals, you can get right in the pens for snuggles and selfies! Please note, this stop needs to be booked in advance. We provide detailed instructions on this in the confirmation email.

Some stops do encourage you to feed the animals, while others do not. We have listed where you can feed them, so please always respect the rules and posted signs.

We recommend leaving between 9:00 – 9:30 am.

This trip is unfortunately not fit for your pup. There are many farm stops with working dogs and other animals who will get startled by being around outside pets. 

We recommend bringing 2-5 people, or one car-load.
