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 child’s next birthday party – celebrate your child’s special day with a farmyard full of instant friends! Contact Finn at 250-339-FARM or to book your event.

Note: Filberg Park, including the Hands on Farm, will be closed July 30 to Aug. 1 for Festival set up and closed Aug 6 & 7 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 the other animals or become stressed. As a result they may be put away for a little quiet time and rest. Although we always hope to have the animals as advertised, it’s possible they may not be there. Please call the Hands on Farm if you want to know what animals are currently guests with us. All animals are on loan and are returned to their owners at the end of the summer.

*Please note: Although popular in years past, we will not have rabbits on site for the 2018 season due to hemorrhagic disease.

2019 Barnyard Fundraiser

Join us on Sunday June 23, 12pm – 3pm for a farm-tastic good time to raise money for the farm and to learn to about furry farmyard friends! Enjoy barnyard bingo, hot dogs by donation and plenty of fun!  There will also be prizes to be won.

$2/person & $5/family. Donations gratefully accepted.

If you can not make it down but would like to donate, please contact Finn at the Farm:

$20 supports small animals and $50 supports the larger animals.
