Visitors will be introduced to mixed farming as it was in the late 1800s. In Victorian times on PEI farmers did not specialize in a single cash crop but rather raised diverse animals and grew diverse crops to meet their daily needs. Sheep were raised for wool, fowl for eggs and meat. Goats and cattle were raised for meat and dairy. Visitors will get an opportunity to have an up close experience with the village's new spring arrivals including goats, lambs, chickens, turkeys, pigs and cattle. New life means new engagements on the farm. The new additions to the site require special care. Goats need to be milked and lambs need to be bottle fed and visitors can now be a part of it! Visitors will also have the opportunity to harvest strawberries and create their own strawberry shortcake deserts to accompany their meal.
Half-day experience, $39 per person (plus HST). Minimum one, maximum 15 participants.
