Hello! Welcome to our Farm!! Our farm sits on a beautiful piece of land with a variety of very sweet animals, we know we are so lucky to have what we have and decided to share our treasures with everyone. Our goal is to make a difference to the earth we live on, the people we interact with and the animals we share this planet with. We have turned our farm into a petting zoo and Airbnb. We have a variety of tasks around the farm from daily animal care to building projects and everything in between, there will always be something that suits your talents! And if you think you have none (talents) donít worry, we will dig them out if you! We want you to come to our farm as guests wanting to help with our cause of creating a place that helps people reconnect with animals and nature. Our belief is that one small act of kindness is one step closer to creating a happier planet :-) You can also check out our Facebook page at Down To Earth Farms Petting Zoo! Shane:)

As far as preparing meals it all depends what we arrange with you and other helpers that may be here. It ranges from making meals together, taking turns making supper to cooking for yourself whichever works best:).

Our farm is situated on top of a hill with a great view, it's a magical farm!! If your looking for some peace and quite with the exception of a few fury friends you'll love it! We have the best view anywhere around, everyday looks a little different. The winters are amazing on the farm, its very quiet and peaceful. Grande Prairie is 25 minutes away and has everything you would need, it has a population of around 65 000 people. There are many cool places to see locally. Have a Great Day! Shane
