Farm Visits

At Wallace Springs Farm we welcome farm visits by appointments.  We enjoy talking about what we do, and why we do it the way we do, but please realize that we also have daily chores that need tending to.  We welcome families but strictly ask that you tend to your children at all times.  Our farm is a place to learn about animals and farm life, but it is our home as well and we do have rules.
  • Animals are used to us….and can get frightened easily, children, and their parents, need to know to be gentle, not to chase animals, and use to "their inside voices". 
  • Please do not bring "treats" for the animals - we generally have something that children can feed the animals
  • We ask that you not involve your pets in the tour.
  • Please do not come here straight from another farm without a clothing and footwear change. Our animals have good immune systems but we still like to be careful.
  • Enjoy

  1. We have been travelling to our cottage on the Bruce for years and have always wondered about the sign at the road. Wallace Springs. Now we know what it's all about. You can't imagine, over the years, what we thought was beyond the gate. This is an extremely praiseworthy exercise concerning the Monarchs because they are in trouble at this time. We have often thought of planting or transplanting milkweed from the wild and wondered if it would grow. We used to see numerous Monarchs in our yard and now have not seen any in quite a while. We will be sending money or joining the club so to speak, this summer, and are looking forward to making an appointment to stop in to see the good work. Thank you very much for doing what you are doing.

  2. Hi JD

    Thanx for the comment and do stop in one day for a visit. Yes you can plant milkweed from wild stands. Plants to not transplant well but if you dig up the rhizomes late April/early May and they do grow nicely. The alternative is to collect wild seed in the fall and plant it (fall planting and very shallow, needs light to germinate)
