We started our tour at the ponds and saw some baby ducks; they were so cute! You can also see the handiwork of beavers who use to call the pond their home. Our next stop was the gazebo, where it was very peaceful to sit and take in the picturesque surroundings and get some beautiful photos. Next we were off to the butterfly gardens! These gardens are filled with butterflies, bees, and even some hummingbirds.
We then ventured off to the Wetland Centre where they have nets for children and adults to use to see what you can catch in the wetland! We didn’t find anything, but I’m sure the next time we visit we will have better luck. The farm has one of the few farm sized grain elevators still standing today, so we had to go in and look around. It was really neat!
Before continuing on with our self-guided tour, we stopped by the visitor centre to ask them our numerous questions. The staff were delighted to see us and they were happy to ask all of our questions. Here we saw that they had a gift shop with a lot of wonderful trinkets and treats to buy. They mentioned that they had goats and chickens to play with! So of course that was our next stop. The baby goats and chicks were so cute, they put a smile on everyone’s faces.
After our adventures around the farm, we were starting to get hungry. So off to the Tea House! The staff were wonderful and efficient. The food tasted just like grandmas!
There are so many things to do and see at The Ellis Bird Farm. We had such a great time! We’d love to hear about your visit to the Ellis Bird Farm, share with us on Facebook or Twitter!
