As a family, we always try to reserve a special place to visit at least monthly, if not more frequently. When we lived in the Montreal area, we would visit The Ecomuseum regularly to walk and visit the animals. When we first arrived in Cape Breton, we'd spend hours driving around on the weekends looking for a special place we could walk or visit. It was always fun to see new places but we didn't find an area that was enjoyable for everyone (and the kids didn't always appreciate the long drives). On our quest to eat locally, we were introduced to Hank's Farm and it quickly became our weekly family destination. Only about 10 minutes from home, it is a wonderful place to start our weekends. We pick up our produce (at EXCELLENT prices) and then the kids get to play and Mike gets to visit the animals. Everyone wins!
Here are some pictures from our last visit (I know, I've been really bad about posting photos and just family updates recently).
Looking for our trip to the farm tomorrow. I'm not sure what we are going to do when it shuts down for the winter!
