Cape Breton Place of the Week-Hank’s Farm

As a family, we always try to reserve a special place to visit at least monthly, if not more frequently. When we lived in the Montreal area, we would visit The Ecomuseum regularly to walk and visit the animals. When we first arrived in Cape Breton, we’d spend hours driving around on the weekends looking for a special place we could walk or visit. It was always fun to see new places but we didn’t find an area that was enjoyable for everyone (and the kids didn’t always appreciate the long drives). On our quest to eat locally, we were introduced to Hank’s Farm and it quickly became our weekly family destination. Only about 10 minutes from home, it is a wonderful place to start our weekends. We pick up our produce (at EXCELLENT prices) and then the kids get to play and Mike gets to visit the animals. Everyone wins!

Here are some pictures from our last visit (I know, I’ve been really bad about posting photos and just family updates recently).





Looking for our trip to the farm tomorrow. I’m not sure what we are going to do when it shuts down for the winter!

    Ah, my favourite place on all of Cape Breton. đŸ™‚ I don’t think we’ll make it tomorrow – we have lots of things to get done at home this week-end so I think it will just be a quick trip to the Farmer’s Market instead.

    Are you guys going to the Eco Expo this week-end?

    We ended up going today because Mike’s work van broke down so he was home early. Morgaine had a major fit because we wouldn’t buy goodies so it was a short trip (and then she cried ALL the way to Sydney). They didn’t have much produce today and I guess are closing for the winter in TWO weeks (so soon, I thought they went til December something).

    We may check out the Eco Expo on Sunday. It really depends on the kid’s moods. They’ve had a couple late nights in a row and they are feeling it. Tomorrow we are sticking around home to finish the roof on the shed. I’d really like to go to the Atlantic Eco Expo in November but having gone to New Glasgow for Thanksgiving I don’t think we’ll be able to do it.
