Farm life for kids at Foymount Farm (Ontario, Canada)

Carlotta Cerri

“I want to stay here”, said Oliver as he got in the car. Leaving Foymount Farm was the saddest day of our trip in West Canada. Five days flew through this truly amazing experience.

On the first day the kids picked vegetables from “our” garden, made a tomato/cucumber salad and a yellow zucchini risotto.

Every night Oliver and Emily helped put the chickens in their house, feed the sheep, brush the donkey and collect eggs for our breakfast. Every morning, they released the sheep into the open field, fed the pig and the horses, and then we all went for a horse ride in the nearby forest.

Seeing Oliver and Emily learn about nature and animals (and a self-sustained lifestyle) and get to know their way around the farm was simply priceless. And the voices of the farm—birds singing, grasshoppers chirping, roosters crowing, horses neighing—were the most pleasant soundtrack I’ve ever heard.

Thanks Sue for being an amazing host and sharing with us a little bit of your paradise. Thanks Lauren for much needed mommy chats, and little Mason and Leo for fun play dates.

Foymount Farm will stay in our hearts forever!

If you have kids and live in West Canada or are heading to Ontario for your holidays, you HAVE TO stay at Foymount farm. It’s so much more than a vacation.

Foymount Farm is a family farm in Cormac, Ontario (CA), where children (and adults) are involved in all the farm tasks. There are two beautiful cottages available, one for up to 8 guests and a smaller one for 6 (we stayed in the bigger one because the other wasn’t available on the dates we wanted).

Sue provides a list of things to do and see around the farm, and toys for the kids (although Oliver and Emily barely uses them). All activities are included in the price, except horseback riding.
