Updated: Sep 17

As fall is one of the most beautiful season to visit the farm, we do receive a great amount of information requests via phone, email and social medias. Although we are always very happy to see the excitement surrounding the farm visit, we also are quite busy with our daily farm operations and sometimes we simply are unable to answer all information requests instantly !

Here is the top 10 questions linked to the farm visit. If you are planning on visiting the farm and have questions, please take the time to read the information below before contacting us as it will certainly answer most of the questions you might have !

We look forward to welcoming you at the farm !

Q: What are your fall opening hours ?

A: We are open Saturdays and Sundays from 10am to 4pm.

Q: Do we need to pre-purchase or reserve to visit the farm ?

A: No reservation is needed ! Our activities are spread across 30 acres of land so there is plenty of space for proper distancing ! You just need to meet us at the admission booth upon arrival to purchase your access ticket and receive all the information required for your farm visit. (Please note that the vaccination passport (Code QR) is not required at the farm)

Q: How much does the admission cost ?

A: Our current admission rate is:

Adult $8

Child (3 to 12 yr. old) $4

Infant (2yr. and under) Free

The admission rate includes the self-guided tour, access to the 4km nature trail network, access to the main observation area as well as the picnic and playground areas.

Q: Can we walk alpacas ?

A: We do not offer walks with alpacas however we propose a self-guided circuit of the farm so you can get close to them in the most respectful and natural way possible. The walking circuit follows our pasture fences where you will have the chance to see them up close and learn all there is to know about these wonderful animals. All this, in one of the most picturesque setting of the region !

Q: How much time should we plan for the farm visit ?

A: We recommend planning at least 30 minutes up to a maximum of 2 to 3 hours should you wish to picnic on-site and fully enjoy the interpretive nature trail network.

Q: Can we visit the farm with our dog ?

A: Unfortunately, dogs (or any other domestic animals) are not allowed on the farm.

Q: Is it possible to picnic on-site ?

A: Absolutely ! Many picnic tables are available at the main observation area. Your admission ticket gives you access to the picnic area with a panoramic view of the female pastures and surrounding mountains. Picnic tables will remain in place until frost sets in !

Q: Do you have a restaurant or bistro on-site?

A: We do not provide any food service on-site so plan on bringing your own picnic or order one in advance. Here are a few local options for you.

You can pre-order a gourmet picnic basket that will be delivered directly at the farm and be ready for pickup upon arrival. Picnic baskets will be available until the end of October. To consult the menu or pre-order your gourmet picnic basket, click the link below.

Located only 10 minutes away, Sutton’s village also offers plenty of options thanks to friendly local groceries and restaurants offering take-out meals.

Q: Are the trails kid-friendly and stroller-friendly ?

A: Absolutely ! Kids of all age can walk the trails. They have been designed with them in mind! For strollers, we highly recommend a « jogger » style stroller with larger all-terrain wheels so you can enjoy the trail network in its entirety.

Q: Is it possible to visit the farm with someone with reduced mobility ?

A: Yes ! Certain sections of the farm are better adapted to a person with reduced mobility and will still allow them to see alpacas and enjoy the site. As "reduced mobility" is a term that covers many realities, we will be able to better advise you upon arrival at the farm so that your visit is best suited to your specific needs.
