Looking for a family friendly activity close to our Aldergrove, BC hotel? The Bakerview EcoDairy Farm is the first demonstration farm of its kind in Canada and is filled with fun, interactive and educational experiences for everyone in the family! Located just a 21 minute drive from Best Western Country Meadows, you’ll get to be up close to nature, but still be close to the modern comforts of our family-friendly Aldegrove hotel.

The EcoDairy farm is committed to showcasing innovative and sustainable dairy farm practices. Over 80 acres of lush farmland and many live farm animals provide hours of diversion and pleasure. So, what’s there to do at the farm?

There’s an interactive Learning Centre and theatre, an animal exhibit where you can get up close and person with goats, a miniature pony and other friendly fam animals. Of course, being a dairy farm, you can also meet the Vitala cows and see how they get milked! Tours are also provided for groups of 15 people or more.

A great fact about the farm is that it aims to not only make guests feel comfortable, but its cows too! Vitala cows sleep on mattresses in individual comfort stalls, walk on soft, rubber covered flooring, have a climate controlled natural ventilation system and even a rotating brush for self-grooming!

The farm is open everyday except Mondays and tour information is available on their website. After a fun-filled day of learning, come back to our Aldergrove hotel and unwind in our beautiful suites with your family. Contact our friendly staff today to book your stay.
