The Kraay Family Farm is welcoming folks to check out what’s new on the premises of their acclaimed attraction.

The opening weekend of the Kraay Family Farm, held recently, was also filled with Canada 150 theme prizes.

Also included in the weekend prizes was a $150 cash draw and various treats, such as homemade kettle corn and cotton candy with a Canadian twist.

“We have new activities every year. It’s fun, and keeps things new and exciting,” said one of the owners of Kraay Family Farm, Rachel Kraay.

Various activities will take place during the season, including Grandparent’s Weekend on Aug. 4th and 5th where grandparents will receive free admission with each grandchild admission.

A Solar Eclipse Party on Aug. 21st, a Corn Party on Sept. 8th and 9th, an outdoor movie night on Sept. 29th and a pumpkin smash on Oct. 20th and 21st are just some of the scheduled events.

The Kraay Family Farm really has something for everyone in the family to enjoy, from the Chicken Show, Miniature Golf, Pumpkin Cannon, Pig Races, S’more Pit and the Corn Maze, which is Canada 150-themed.

New attractions this season also include swings, a giant hamster wheel for people and bucking broncos, which is a great activity for a group of friends, said Kraay.

“We really just wanted to expand the activities, and we changed and updated a few things,” she added.

“August is my favourite time because the corn is green, lush and tall.”

She said the Kraay Family Farm also resembles a local country fair from the food, atmosphere, games, activities, animals, and the country store.

To see a full list of attractions the Kraay Family Farm has to offer, visitors can go to the Kraay Family Farm web site.
