Talk With the Animals…

Walk, grunt, squeak and squawk with the animals! Welcome to the Hands on Farm, Comox’s very own petting zoo for animal lovers of all ages! Located in the  beautiful Filberg Park… stay tuned as we finalize the animals who will take up residence at Hotel HOF!*

It’s also a great setting for your birthday party – celebrate your child’s special day with a farmyard full of instant friends! Call Jessica at 250-339-FARM to book your event.

Note: Filberg Park, including the Hands on Farm, will be closed August 1 – 3 for festival set up and closed August 8 – 11 for the Festival take down. Contact the Farm at 250-339-FARM for more information on the closure and Filberg Festival for information on the festival.

*Occasionally some animals don’t get along with other animals in the farm. So although we always hope to have the animals as advertised it’s possible that they may not be there. Please call the Hands on Farm at 250-339-FARM if you want to know what animals are guests with us. All animals are adopted or returned to their owners at the end of the summer.
