Eagle Acres Farm
Eagle Acres Dairy is a family-run farm near the historic town of Fort Langley. Its main focus is its milking cows, but it also raises other animals and grows pumpkins. The farm also runs educational programs.
Farm Activities at Eagle Acres
Eagle Acres is a working dairy farm that has a variety of farm animals for people to interact with and learn about. It has cows, horses, pigs, goats, sheep and other small animals.
Visitors can also do a self-guided tour of the dairy barn most of the time. This is usually included in the price of admission and it features educational displays about the farm animals. In addition to the animals, guests can also check out R2D2, the milking robot.
Eagle Acres also runs seasonal events. In the spring it hosts an Easter event and in the fall it has a pumpkin patch.
The Eagle Acres Pumpkin Patch
A new addition since 2018, the pumpkin patch at Eagle Acres is a great family-friendly activity. With admission, guests can access the farm activities listed above as well as the pumpkin fields. To get to the fields, visitors get to enjoy a short hay ride. There’s also usually a small corn maze for younger visitors.
The event in 2020 and 2021 was very different from most years. Instead of parking and exploring the farm on foot, visitors in those two years were able to explore the farm from the safety and comfort of their own cars, “SaFarmi-style.” The 2021 edition also included a corn maze and the ability to walk around the farm on foot, although social distancing was still encouraged.
In 2023 the SaFarmi Stroll and Maze was similar to the 2021 and 2022 editions. Guests could check out over 200 animals on foot and try feeding cows. Hayrides to the pumpkin patch and corn fields were also available.
Admission and Hours
Last year general admission to Eagle Acres cost $14 (plus GST) for adults and $12 for children and seniors. Toddlers under two and seniors aged 65 and over had free admission. You could save a dollar on each ticket if you purchased your ticket online. Pumpkins were sold based on size, and cost anywhere from $2 up to about $12 or so.
In 2023 the pumpkin patch was open most days from October 1st until Halloween (October 31st). It was only closed on October 2nd to the 6th, 10th to the 12th as well as the 16th and 23rd. The patch was open from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm on weekdays and from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekends and Thanksgiving. 2024 details will likely be similar.
