Hay Rides (Weekends):
During the weekends, jump on board the Willowbank haywagon. Great for the whole family. *Weekend Bracelet Purchase Required
Young and old alike will enjoy an up close experience with the farm animals. Make sure to ask what their names are. See some of their pictures on the "animals" page.
*Weekend Bracelet Purchase Required
Back again this year, we have created the Willowbank maze. Perfect for young families who want to try a corn maze.
*Weekend Bracelet Purchase Required
Located at the check out area - children enjoy crawling through the hay. Its a little dark and spooky - so better for the older child.
*Weekend Braclet Pirchase Required
Bring along your own picnic and enjoy one of our various picnic areas. Tables are limited so bring along a blanket.
Bring a pair of walking shoes and explore the dykeland along the Cornwallis River. Watch some of the highest tides from along the front of the farm. Wander down to the old grave yard which was used by the early French settlers. Make your way to the Planters monument and read about the Acadian Settlers. We would be happy to point the way.
Make your own fun:
Bring along a football or soccer ball or have a game of catch. If you have enough people- make a pyramid on the front lawn.
*Weekend / Holiday Bracelet Purchase Required - to make things simple for you, these extra activities are available with the purchase of a $5.00 Willowbank U-Pick Bracelet per person(no charge for children 2 and under). Family rate of $20. Adults who wish to particpate require a $5.00 braclet as well. Find out what is included each day at the time of your visit and purchase at the Farm Market.
