A great place for the whole family. See how the bees live in a functioning hive and meet the queen. There are many honey items to buy and there is a huge playground for the kids to run and explore.

They have the best honey! My favourite is the cinnamon honey spread. Although I only go here to buy honey, they do have tours of the honey making bees and a full children's playground.

This is a one time deal. Parents should not be charged to go in the kids park. Cost us similar to premium amusement parks and zoos! Not worth the money. They should make a family pass!

Thanks for taking the time to write a review of our Adventure Farm. We feel we provide great value for the $11.99 admission. Many families play together here for 4-5 hours with their children. Included in admission is healthy outdoor fun, play & exercise, fresh air, multi ages enjoying life, creating memories together, education on bees, farm animals, tractor rides and creative play experiences. It is hard for families to harvest the same value by watching a movie at a theater.

We are constantly re-investing in our farm, our large group of employees receive a living wage, we spend our income locally, pay taxes, make donations and give back to the community throughout the year.

If you feel it is still too much, we do have coupons in the Summer Fun guide for $2 off, we also have special days like "Wanna Bee days" where if your child dresses like a bee they come in for free. Please see our website for details. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective, and thanks for letting us share ours. Kind regards, Chris

This is the kind of place where I would have gladly spent all day as a kid! Clovermead is easy to find and it is right off the highway. It is huge! This is like taking your kids to their Grandparents the farm and letting them run free to burn off all the energy they want. This is not the sterile adult induced fun of a theme park, it is rustic. Kids get to be kids here and they get to make their own fun. Yes, they are on a farm with dirt and grass even mud, so they may get dirty; bring play or outside clothes. There is a huge fort and a pirate ship, a bicycle-powered go-cart track, zip lines, jungle gyms, pumpkin cannons and animals to feed and pet. We talked to parents with young kids who were going in. They said this was one of their favourite places to let the kids go. They knew the kids would be sleeping on the ride home. Clvermead is probably best suited to children up to tweens. Oh don't worry you can let your inner kid come out because lots of parents were up to their elbows in fun with their kids.
