    Highly recommend
    There were five of us in the group (two adults in their early sixties and three adults in 20s and 30s) each with little or no horseback riding training. Our guides, Alima, Zaz and Nele were very good at providing riding and safety instructions. They were very friendly, calm and talkative along our journey which put us at ease. Our horses were very well behaved and friendly for the entirety of our two-hour horse walk through the woods and on the backroads with a few breaks to look at the beautiful ocean vistas along the way. It was a great experience, perfect for novice riders. We felt safe and well taken care of throughout. Thank you Farm Ventures for a memorable excursion and ride!

    A wonderful experience!
    Everyone at Farm Ventures went above and beyond to make our experience at the farm so memorable. Dustin and Chiara were amazing guides and thoughtfully introduced us to all of the animals. They were extremely engaging, knowledgeable and kind. The owner, Bette-Lyn took the time to greet us personally and share her story. She was so lovely and welcoming. We ended our tour visiting the resident bunnies with Nancy. She was incredibly sweet and gave our daughter the honour of naming the new baby bunny. Farm Ventures was the highlight of our trip to the Sunshine Coast. It left us with a memory that will last a lifetime. We can’t wait to come back.

    Amazing petting farm experience!
    The pony rides were a highlight for the kids and we all loved the farm tour Nancy gave us! She was so warm, kind, and knowledgeable about the farm animals 😊. We got to interact with friendly farm animals - feeding (and petting many): chickens & birds, goats, horses, llama, a pig, and even snuggling bunnies in the bunny room! I highly recommend this personal, interactive farm experience! It is the favourite annual field trip for my home daycare❤️

    Five stars plus! Beyond amazing!
    Oh my gosh! I would highly recommend a horseback tour with this amazing company. I booked a four hour mountain ride which was beyond breathtaking. I have little experience riding horses but the guides L’eonie and Chiara were beyond exceptional. They were patient and kind, I felt that they were in complete control the entire day. They were aware of our surroundings with bears, dogs, steep inclines and declines. And then L’eonie and Chiara stopped on top of the mountain overlooking the ocean and made me a beautiful lunch. I am coming back in September and will 100% rebook with this amazing company.

    A must-do for kids in the area
    We've lived in the area for almost 3 years and finally decided to check it out. My twins just turned 5 and they LOVED it. They have been nervous around animals in the past, but Chiara was so encouraging and friendly that my kids completely came out of their shells and had the best time. The kids had so much fun meeting and feeding all of the animals and were made to feel extra special on our private tour with Chiara. I can't believe that we didn't come here sooner. If you live nearby or are passing through, definitely bring your kids here.

    If you love horses, don't even think twice about it, check out Farm Ventures!
    Farm Ventures is amazing. It is a surreal experience that had me smiling every second of my time there. I went on a two hour ride with Chiara, one of the awesome guides at Farm Ventures. It was great, she made me feel confident with the horse, took her time to teach me how to ride the horse safely, and was very patient with me as I progressed throughout the ride. All the farm animals were also so calm and well behaved, and it is evident that both the animals and guides are very enthusiastic and eager to provide a great experience!

    We had such a great private tour by Nancy and Hannes this morning. Nancy really went above and beyond to give us all an amazing time. This is our second trip to farm ventures, and we would definitely make a third trip the next time we are on the Sunshine Coast. Thank you guys- from the Johnson Family.

    Amazing time at Farm Ventures
    Hannes was an excellent tour guide at Farm Ventures - his love and passion for all animals was evident. He was so gentle and kind with our 8 and 6 year old as he showed them the different animals at the farm. He was knowledgeable and patient with our kids. The farm had everything from horses, donkeys, bunnies, chickens, roosters Guinea pigs and more…and the baby piglets were adorable! Thank you Farm Ventures for memories we won’t forget!

    Entertaining, fun, educational!
    Nancy was our guide, she was kind, knowledgeable, and fun. Our group was 4 adults. We got to hold baby piglets, and meet some lovely goats, pigs, horses, a donkey, and a load of smaller critters such as chickens, guinea pigs, ducks, even peacocks! All in all, it was a fun little tour, would definitely take children there, and it was entertaining for us grown-ups, too! Thanks for the tour, Nancy!

    horse riding
    we are so happy to find this place - communication from the onset was great . we were welcomed warmly and the farm was lovely . it was my first time to horse ride in 20 years and my 11 year old daughter had never before . Tally and Pauline accompanied us throughout our 1.5 hour ride and were competent , caring and helpful . They put me at ease right away . Our daughter said it was the highlight of our trip ! I can’t thank you enough to Tally and Pauline for being so awesome . I highly recommend to go book a horse ride or even just go for a tour of the farm and see the animals .

I have been taking my grade one class to Farm Ventures every year for many years. It is the best school field trip ever! This year I went with my 2 year old granddaughter and her friends ( about 8 kids) and 10 adults. Bet Lynn made our farm visit amazing, as always. The hands on experience with the animals is incredible. Imagine holding 10 day old bunnies, tiny baby piglets pigeons, Guinea pigs and chickens! A birthday song by a horse, a horsey back rub and kiss on the cheek as well as a pony ride, feeding ducks, chickens, pigs, turkeys and a donkey, and posing with fancy peacocks make this such a wonderful experience. The children always love this trip and even the youngest at 18 months had an incredible time. I have always appreciated how Bet Lynn’s love for her animals shines through and shows the children how important it is that we care for and treat animals with respect and dignity. This will continue to be a yearly event for us!
Thank you Farm Ventures.

I went with my special needs client who is high anxiety and disruptive at times. She was struggling when we arrived and the staff were super understanding kind and helpful. Dustin and Sophie went above and beyond to help her and me too to deescalate the situation. In the end she said to me "why do the animals calm me down". It was very endearing and I'm grateful they were so understanding because she was causing a scene lol.
The animals were so cute especially the horses that Dustin had talking and giving us back rubs.
Thank you for this experience.

Our visit to the farm ventures exceeded expectations. Jocelyn, our guide, made it truly unforgettable with her incredible explanations about the animals. Grateful for her warmth and the awesome tour she provided. I had an amazing time, we travelled from Vancouver just to visit here and it was without a doubt, worth it. It’s incredible for all age groups, if you get a chance, you must visit!!

Farm Ventures is the absolute best. The animals are so well cared for and happy. This is the second time I've brought my toddler (with the added pony ride) and he talks about it for weeks and weeks after. I love to expose him to so many different animals and he loves the opportunity to pet them and feed them (and there are SO many creatures - chickens, ducks, peacocks, donkey, horses, pigs, goats, bunnies, guinea pigs, dogs). I'll be bringing back my son for sure and I also can't wait to see these well loved and sweet pets again. The pony ride is absolutely worth it on the most behaved pony I've ever met (Twilight- though he rode Thunder last time who was also so gentle).

For my birthday wish this year I wanted to go horse riding. My wish came through when my friend Vivi took me to Farm Ventures. I was delighted by all the big and small creatures of different kind mingling among themselves with curiosity and friendliness.
Knowledgeable owner and friendly staff. Safety was number one in all time.
I had the best trail ride in years!! Such a great experience and so much fun.
A wonderful visit and more to come.
Thank you all

Need to book before you go, some people just rocked up and it seemed like an inconvenience as they had to get someone else in to lead a tour.
*note it’s cash or etransfer only. No credit card. This business needs to get a square! No one has cash these days!
Regardless if you book a pony ride the person doing it will have no idea if you’ve booked it or not so mention it at the start. All seems very disorganized. The people leading your tour are volunteers
Donkey, horses, a room with baby animals to play with (pigs, rabbits, Guinea pigs, chickens) peacocks, pigs and goats.

Do not wear nice clothing it will get dirty and you’ll smell like farm animal by the end of it. There’s animal poop everywhere.

Our tour leader Leo was fantastic! Super friendly and engaging, really great with kids. Thank you Leo!
