Definitely not worth the money paid for entrance to the farm and the Legends Easter Egg Hunt. The pony ride was ridiculous and I would not recommend. Unfortunately I did not see value for the money paid.

We visited in September with my 2 year old nephew. We either missed it on the website or it wasn't listed that the concession was closed in September so we wished we had brought some food. For 4 adults, a toddler and a pony ride it was close to $75, which seemed like a lot for what was there. Most... More

We spent a good time in there. A good collection of animals and birds. My kids really enjoyed it. A really great place for the parties too.

I live and work in the NW and I've always wanted to visit Butterfield Acres. Finally went there on a sunny Saturday. The place was quite small; only took me less than an hour to check everything out. The animals seem very well cared for. Lots of food and space. The highlight was definitely the baby goats. OMG they are... More

A beautiful day with our young kids. The animals were fun to interact with and a great learning experience for our "city kids". The facilities are well kept and the staff super friendly. A great affordable way to spend a spring day. This is a gem in the city of Calgary.

I was invited to go on an Easter Egg hunt with my grandkids and had a great day. I believe that the event is best geared for preschoolers. There is plenty of parking & is very easy to find. I would recommend going at this time of year as there were lots of baby animals and the barnyard smells were... More

We took our 2 grandchildren (21/2 years and 8 month old) for what we thought would be a fun day, it was not. First of all, it was very expensive and very little to see. There were lots of goats, some sheep, chickens, pigs and a few other animals. Most of the building were closed and the pens with signs... More

Had Butterfield Acres come to the house for a birthday party with a mini petting zoo. The kids had a great time!! Max brought sheep, goats, bunnies and ducklings. The setup and take down was easy and made a special day even better!! Thank you!! Highly recommend.!!

I feel like the day camps for younger campers at Butterfield acres would be fun. But not the older- ages 12-14 camps. I was a camper, the instructor was dull, boring, and acted as if she didn't like her job. The website said FIT was about "in depth" animal care. We mostly just petted animals like the preschoolers. I would... More

I have read both positive and negative reviews and from my experience I am with the positive side. Pricing: While it does seem a bit ludicrous to charge $11 for all kids that can walk. They do offer free parking, and they are a farm that has to capitalize on the summer season for revenue. As well in comparison to... More
