Events – Sept/Oct 2020
This 16 acre labyrinth will fascinate adults and kids alike. With its unique story about indigenous people, it is not only fun but also informative.
Enjoy our pumpkin patch afterwards. More information here.
We are open Friday 4pm to sundown, Saturday 9am to sundown, and Sunday 9am to 5pm.
- Goat Yoga (Not available during the pandemic)
- Walk the Alpacas
If you want to do something really different, then come take a walk with a pair of friendly alpacas along a lovely, peaceful trail at Maple Hill Urban Farm in Ottawa. Meet both alpacas as you take turns switching animals until you’ve walked both of our fascinating, personality-packed creatures. For additional excitement (and a less leisurely walk), you may want to include a goat. A ticket is $50 including HST and is good for up to 4 people. Extra adult/children $5 with sharing an alpaca (currently there are only two at the farm).

- September – October 2017 – Field Trips for schools
Maple Hill Urban Farm is located in Ottawa’s Greenbelt. Every year in the fall, we offer field trips for a wide range of young audiences. Field trips provide an opportunity for children to learn first hand about a working farm and to discuss important social as well as ecological aspects of food production and animal husbandry in our area.
Our field trips consist of a brief introduction to the farm, followed by education stations throughout the 167-acre property plus a corn maze adventure walk where the children explore their way through the many twists and turns of the 10-acre labyrinth. 10 check points that feature previously arranged questions need to be found. Contact us for topics of the education program and prices.
Emails are the easiest way to contact us with any questions regarding our events. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
