Abbotsford’s Road Trip Detours: Family Fun
May 16, 2022
Today calls for a quick pit stop! Time for a stretch? Visit one of our many sites to catch some rays, refuel, and hopefully tire the kids out.
This hidden gem is a long-time Abbotsford favourite. Birchwood Dairy raises and milks approximately 120 cows at their family-owned and operated farm in East Abbotsford. From start to finish all their dairy products are created on-site, from the hay grown for the cows to eat to the 50 flavours of delicious ice cream as well as cheeses, yogurts and more. Stop by for a cone or take home a pint to enjoy later, their ice cream is truly the tastiest way to beat the heat!
Explore the science behind farming in the state-of-the-art Farm Discovery Centre and dairy barn. Watch the robot milker in action and learn all about where dairy products come from with the help of a knowledgeable tour guide. Outdoors, there is even more to explore! Say hello to the goats, pigs, calves, turkeys and more in their Animal Exhibit, and wander through their park and picnic grounds.
