A Fun Distraction for Young Children

The staff were friendly, but they seemed to be short a few. The animals are well cared for and it gives people a fair idea of life on a farm. Lots of hand washing stations and... read more

I feel like the day camps for younger campers at Butterfield acres would be fun. But not the older- ages 12-14 camps. I was a camper, the instructor was dull, boring, and acted as if she didn't like her job. The website said FIT was about "in depth" animal care. We mostly just petted animals like the preschoolers. I would... More

I have read both positive and negative reviews and from my experience I am with the positive side. Pricing: While it does seem a bit ludicrous to charge $11 for all kids that can walk. They do offer free parking, and they are a farm that has to capitalize on the summer season for revenue. As well in comparison to... More

Admission prices are what they are, but butterfield acres is a great place for young children to have a hands-on experience with animals that most kids don't get exposed to. I've read the reviews, and I just want to touch on a couple things: Hand washing: there are plenty of hand washing stations around the farm. People complain that there... More

The staff were friendly, but they seemed to be short a few. The animals are well cared for and it gives people a fair idea of life on a farm. Lots of hand washing stations and lots to see. I would recommend that you bring a lunch, water, and good walking shoes (no sandles). This is great for younger kids,... More

I am writing this because of some of the negative reviews (ahem, two and a half year old "baby" wasn't free.. geez lady..). I brought a REAL baby (7M) and my TODDLER (3). The baby enjoyed snoozing in the stroller, and my toddler had a great time. I am a city girl through and through and wasn't at all shocked... More

This is truly a rip off of the highest order and the SPCA should shut the place down. The animals are dirty, housed in inadequate pens etc , staff are young kids who are ill trained. It is disgusting place .

Took my two year old son to this farm - what a disappointment!!! He is only 2 years and 4 months old and we had to pay because they charge a fee for babies who can walk. The farm to me seemed neglected - lots of building but all closed - animals closed...you can pet the rabbits and the goats... More

Our family really likes this little farm. You really can't have high expectations coming into it, but if you make the most of it, it can be so great! The novelty of going into goat, pig, rabbit, chick, and sheep pens and actually getting to pet and feed the animals is great, especially if your children have never been exposed... More

We live within walking distance, and I would much rather drive for a few hours to go somewhere else to see animals. Not worth the money. Admission fees are sky high, and you have to pay for babies as soon as they are able to walk - even Disneyland lets kids in free under 3 years of age. Everything costs... More

Went to Butterfield Acres Farm this saturday morning for their Legendary Easter Egg Hunt, and let me tell you there was absolutely nothing legendary about it. Actually it was the worst unorganized rip-off I have seen in Calgary. Granted the weather was terrible today, none of their fault obviously we were ready and dressed for it. The egg hunt cost...
