Why visit Circle D Ranch?
We have a large farm with a variety of livestock and diverse crops. Students can see a cow herd with baby calves, meet young pigs and baby chicks, see horses in the field, and walk or run in the broad open spaces. We can explore the haskap field and afterwards taste some haskap products in the commercial kitchen. We can build a compost pile and students can plant a seed to take home and grow on their own.

ColdAcre Food Systems is a farm producer that focuses on indoor growing all year long. We use several cultivation methods to grow over 30 crops including oyster mushrooms. By May 2021 we'll have over 20,000 plants growing at all times! Every week we plant, germinate, tend, harvest, and deliver our fresh food to homes, stores, and restaurants around Yukon. Students get a chance to see it all happen, get involved, and learn.

Why Visit Elemental Farm?
Our farm is one important system or cycle - with livestock, gardens, greenhouse and compost all relying on each other to work. Interacting with our compost pile and our worms is a hit. It’s like a treasure hunt! There’s lots of space to spread out, learn and have fun on our farm, rain or shine.

Kids can learn about the Loop program with Super Store that diverts food waste from the landfill to local farms.

Students can learn about beef, pork, chicken and egg production as well as learn about the challenges of growing forage for a mixed farm. Tours can be tailored to curriculum requirements. Heart Bar Ranch also cooperates with classes to hatch chicks in class then come see them at the farm later in the spring.

Pourquoi visiter LendrumRoss Farm?
Les élèves peuvent rencontrer un petit troupeau de chèvres qui aiment bien se faire nourrir et flatter et des poules qui pondent une belle variété d’oeufs. Visitez nos jardins, examinez le compost, et plantez des graines pour les élever à la maison. Passez du temps dans la nature et sur la plage au bord du Lac Laberge.

We have a wide variety of animals to see and feed, and offer learning experiences in farming and sustainability. We grow just about everything that can be grown in the Yukon, including berries, apples, pumpkins, herbs, brassicas, and much more. In early June and September, there is the possibility for students to engage in and learn about chicken and beef butchering, including organ dissection.
Why visit Wheaton River Gardens?
Wheaton River Gardens is a working example of nature’s circles: animal waste to compost to gardens to animal and people food. It is a chance to meet a community of animals and people that live together and depend on each other for well being. It is an exploration of working with nature as our guide, and trying to be respectful of the needs of the planet as well.
