The Log Farm in Ottawa’s west end is one of the most fun and friendly places to take your animal-loving children this summer! The Log Farm is a perfect working replica of a mid-19th century farm, and offers lots of learning opportunities for your child.
What’s the deal?
Every Wednesday, the farm hosts Toddler Time from 10:00am to 1:00pm for children aged 0-6 years. My 16-month old son is currently obsessed with animals, and loves our weekly visits to The Log Farm! He especially loves feeding the goats and having them eat from his hand, though they can get a bit over-eager!
Every week a special theme is chosen to both delight and educate the little ones. Previous themes have included Tractors, Butterflies, and the Teddy Bear’s Picnic, which included a very fun circle time as we all went on a ‘bear hunt’ together!
Fun at the farm
The unstructured program at The Log Farm means you and your children get to explore the farm at your own pace. Children can visit and feed the animals (animal feed is available for sale), play at the specially set up activity tables, and walk out to the pond to see the herons nesting. There is also a small picnic area so I always make sure to bring snacks along so we can stop for lunch after enjoying our time at the farm.
The Log Farm is located at 670 Cedarview Road, Nepean.
Entrance to the farm is $6 per person and free for children under one.
