Six Pines Farm Tours
Petting Farm Field Trips
We give thanks to our many customers and friends we have made over the years! Because of you, Six Pines has become Manitoba’s longest operating Petting Farm since 1988. For over three decades (1988 to present), Six Pines has been the #1 preferred destination choice – often called “classroom on the Manitoba Prairies” – hosting field trips to schools, daycares, senior day trips, Girl Guides, Boy Scouts, etc.
Six Pines is open rain or shine. Six Pines Petting Farm carries full commercial liability insurance.
The farm is set on a park-like Victorian farmyard, built in 1911 and beautifully landscaped for you to enjoy. Six Pines provides a safe, structured farm tour for your group complete with water stations, a wheelchair accessible bathroom and a covered lunch area.
