Farm Yard Scavenger Hunt
Welcome to our farm! We're so excited to be hosting you for Alberta Open Farm Days!
During your visit take a look around and see if you can identify some of these plants, animals, and other farm objects. Then, take a picture and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #ehrenholzfarms or tag @ehrenholzfarms1.
Our Charolais-cross cows spend their summers grazing in the pastures.
These baby cows are currently living with their mamas in the pasture.
The baler helps us make big round bales of hay, which we can feed to our cows in the winter.
As our pest control specialists, the barn cats are cute AND useful.
Our friendliest greeter, Bandit is a Blue Heeler - Border Collie mix.
Max is a Blue Heeler - Border Collie - Australian Kelpie mix.
The grain truck is used for hauling seed grain at planting time and harvested grain during harvest season.
One of the many pollinators on our farm, bees regularly visit our garden.
Our tractors help us run equipment, move heavy things, and generally get a lot of work done.
Borage attracts bees and other pollinators to our garden. It is edible and tastes like cucumbers!
No longer in use, this old wooden building was a staple on our farm during Dad's childhood.
Our tomato plants are supported by wire cages so that the plants can grow big and strong.
It's a bit small, but we keep our tools and other odds and ends here.
Did you know that carrots come in many colours? We have purple, pink, yellow, white, and orange carrots in our garden!
We use these metal grain bins to store grain after harvest until it can be sold.
Our peas are ready to be picked! You'll find them growing on wire fences in the garden.
These huge yellow flowers are great for attracting pollinators to our garden.
