ANIMAL REFUGE

Ferme 5 Étoiles is a unique type of farm. Since the year 2000, the enterprise has had a special permit for the observation of wildlife, which also bestows the role of a refuge for wounded or abandoned wildlife found in nature. It is, therefore, possible to observe a diversity of representative animals of Canadian wildlife in our natural parks. Every morning, at 8:30 AM, it's possible to take part in the care of animals with the company of our passionate guide.

FARM ANIMALS

On the Ferme 5 Étoiles, there is always a faithful friend that will keep you company! Apart from the dogs that greet you upon your arrival, there are baby goats and baby sheep that roam freely on site, little rabbits that love being caressed, a cat that wants to be with you while you visit the farm. Every morning of the year, it is possible for you to feed all the farm animals while being accompanied by a guide.

 

 

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to observe and approach the sheep, goats, rabbits, geese, chicken, ducks, dogs and other less common species such as blue peacocks, Bartavelle partridge, silver pheasants and emus. We also have herds of semi-wild buffalo and red deer that live in very large natural habitats. These species are a part of the agricultural breeding created by Ferme 5 Etoiles, and it is possible to taste these types of high quality meat that you will be served at our country B&B table. The main agricultural breeding of the farm are the red deer and the buffalo, but we must not forget the maple syrup, eggs ans oats.
