The Canadian Museum of Agriculture
We finally got to introduce our daughter to the world of agriculture and farming by visiting the Canadian museum of agriculture, a real size farm estate situated within the core of the city of Ottawa.
We visited a dairy farm, sheltering some of the most common cow breeds (the Holstein) as well as some of the rarest species, like the Canadian cow (only 400 of these still exist because they do not produce enough milk by the industrial standards). We also drove an automated tractor which Adélia and I found really exciting!
After the visit to the "museum/farm", our daughter had the chance to run across a wonderful flower garden (the botanical part of the museum), with thousands of species, which showed through their different shapes, smells and colors. There is also a wonderful arboratorium that we did not have time to visit this time, but we will return very soon for a family picnic.
Even though our daughter Adélia was scared to pet the animals, she did tell us that her favourite one was the horse. What is your children’s favourite farm animal?
