I have taken my children here on a couple of occasions, and each time we have left disappointed and feeling robbed. For $37.77, you get admission (1 adult, 2 children) to see a few animals, goats (so many goats), cows, a couple of horses, chickens, and some pigs. There are a few other smaller animals, but you get the point.... More

We have been there about 4 times now with our 2,5 year old boy. He loves it there every time we go. It is nice you can touch the animals. There is only outhouses but hey, it's not like you are paying big bucks to go to one of the huge 5 star amusement parks. It's a FARM, nothing needs... More

Take your little kiddies to Butterfield in the Spring when there are new baby animals. The farm has rustic charm. The animals may be approached (some of them.) There are pony rides, and other activities. My kids loved this place. But if you are allergic to hay and grass, bring tissues.

We used to get season's passes for Butterfield, but the kids started getting bored, and the staff ruder. We took our little ones and some out of town family on the pumpkin hunt, and they were flat out mean to the kids. We stopped going after that.

Went for the 1st time and ive lived in Calgary for years, it was a complete waste of time. Paid $40 for 1adult & 2 children plus 2 pony rides. The pony ride lasts 3secs, terrible! Since there seems to be no path you follow you're left walking around wonder what there is to do in this place. Too many... More

Made to look like a petting zoo which it is not. No flushing toilets. I have never been to place that charges children under five, which was $10.99, (from "able to walk" as the called it). Charge $1 for a pony ride, (which sounds good initially), but all they do is take you around in a little circle, once. It... More
