From May through October annually, come to the farm for tours of our award-winning permaculture gardens (tour dates will be posted when available; other days available by appointment — just phone or email to arrange; groups welcome). See our growing food forests and how you can replicate our methods on your urban or rural property. Meet some of our rescue horses and watch demos of equine-assisted learning (FEEL) combined with natural horsemanship. Discover the science behind how horses teach people about their subconscious behaviours, improving your relationships.

Admission: Adults $10; students and seniors $6; pre-schoolers free.

From May through October, Sunday tours are at 2 pm. Your choice! For off-season tours, please contact us:

What can you expect to see and do? Have an in-depth tour and explanation of our permaculture gardens, see how a chicken tractor works, check out our experimental earth-sheltered greenhouse, stroll past the butterfly garden, meet our pet pot-bellied pigs, learn about our rescued red-eared slider turtles and why it is so important they do not get released into the wild, watch a natural-horsemanship demonstration, learn about horse safety and natural horse-keeping, pet and groom our rescue pony and miniature donkey, learn about our Facilitated Equine Experiential Learning programs…

There is something to see and do for all ages!

Testimonials from previous guests:

“Greenshire is the best kept secret in the city of Kawartha Lakes!”

“I really enjoyed the connection with the horses — communication through energy and body language is so effectively peaceful…. it seems to slow the world down.”

“I liked learning that mushrooms can be grown in trees. The fact that mulch can prevent weeds was awesome! I liked everything about this trip… it was awesome!!!”
