About Pretty Lake Farm
Pretty Lake’s three-acre farm is an outdoor classroom comprised of a large barn, horse paddock, fenced in areas for other barnyard animals, and wildflower covered meadows. Our farm strives towards environmental sustainability and is free from chemical pesticides, insecticides and fertilizers.
The animal farm is a petting zoo of sorts, providing children the opportunity to get close to animals they may only have seen from a distance. They can interact with them by talking, feeding, brushing, and in some cases, leading them around the enclosure. This ‘fun time’ is full of learning experiences: facing your fears, developing trust, conquering the unknown, the element of surprise, the value of quiet observations.
In addition to the barn animals, the farm is alive with birds, squirrels, rabbits, ducks and more wildlife, which makes it the perfect destination for fun and adventure. It’s exciting to see how and where animals live, what they eat, and how they interact with each other.
