As the farm visit is available year-round, we 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. Sometimes we are simply 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: Our fall opening hours are Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, starting after September's Labor Day long weekend.
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.
Q: How much does the admission cost ?
A: Our current admission rate is:
Child (3 to 12 yr. old) $4
Infant (2yr. and under) Free
The admission rate includes the self-guided tour, access to the interpretive nature trail network (close to 4km) and access to the observation, 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 want to fully enjoy the interpretive nature trail network and the picnic areas on-site (in season).
*** Please note that the last admission daily is at 3:15pm to allow you to complete the shortest walking loop around the alpaca pastures and exit the farm by 4pm.
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 have a picnic on-site ?
A: Absolutely ! Picnic tables are available at the main observation area and at the interpretive marsh area during summer and fall. Your admission ticket gives you access to the picnic areas with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains and landscape. Picnic tables 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 we suggest you plan on bringing your own picnic so you can fully enjoy your farm visit experience.
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.
