The Macdonald Farm will be having an Open House in conjunction with Naturally, Sainte-Anne on Saturday, September 16th. The Dairy Barn will be open to the public, with staff on hand to explain how we take care of the cows and calves, and just what goes in to producing high quality milk.
The mini-farm will have a variety of animals including chickens, ducks, sheep goats a pony and a rabbit, and we will have pony rides available for the kids for a small charge. We will also have on display some of the modern machinery we use to grow crops to feed cows and people; the Mac Market will also be open as usual, with a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables for sale.
The Morgan Arboretum is also participating, as is the Montreal Aviation Museum and the Ecomuseum. A shuttle bus will be running from Ste. Anne’s to all of the different locations constantly throughout the day.
This is the Farm's 3rd year participating; about 3,000 people visited the Farm during last year's Open House.
