Take a drive to Armstrong and check out the largest breeder of quality, refined, well-pedigreed miniatures in Canada.

Chickadee Ridge Miniatures is home to over 200 horses, quail, doves, emus, pheasants, peacocks, wild turkeys, pot-bellied pigs, miniature cattle, goats, sheep and deer.

The 80 picturesque acres also house a wallaby, snow monkey, reptiles and the newest arrivals, two ring-tailed lemurs.

In addition to interacting with the gentle and approachable animals, kids can explore the play area, complete with a slide and swing set.

A 50’s-style snack area is available for those who want to pack a lunch and stay a while.

The farm is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is located on Mcleod Road in Armstrong. Call 546-9323 for more information.
