Please be patient for a response we are a busy working farm, thanks

In your booking request we need,

A day and time you prefer, number of adults, number and ages of children, booking name, mobile number.

You need both hands to walk animals so if you have young children you need to book extra people to manage babies and toddlers or you can just be around the alpacas in the pen instead of walking.

We can accommodate any size group and will tailor tours to suit the corresponding age level and interests.

  • September – October 2017Field 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. (maplehillurbanfarm@gmail.com)
