Hennigar's Farm Park & Trail is a restful place to stop in your travels through the lovely Annapolis Valley. Children can play in the sandbox or ride the tricycles, and people of all ages can feed the goats and ducks, stroll the nature trail, or grab a bite at the cookhouse and relax on the patio overlooking the pond.

Country Cookhouse

Forgot to pack a picnic? We've got you covered! Our Country Cookhouse will make sure you don't go hungry while browsing the park and trail. Just like our store, The Cookhouse takes pride in fresh-served foods made to order. Try the fish-and-chips! You can taste the difference!
Playground

Kids love the boat and sandbox; we even supply the digging tools! Wee ones can pretend they're pirates, landed on a beach to bury some treasure; or maybe they'll be fishermen on a boat left high and dry in the Minas Basin, waiting for the tide to come back in. A great spot to let them exercise their imaginations!

[Little Farmer Trike Track]
The Little Farmer Trike Track features authentic John Deere Tricycles. Your young farmer won't want to leave! In fact, after zooming around the track several times, he or she might give up dreams of farming in favour of motorcycle racing or joining the NASCAR circuit!

Petting Zoo

Our park is home to ducks, dwarf goats, pigs, sheep, peacocks, rabbits, and turtles! Buy some Goat Cones in the market, then head over to feed the goats; they'll be happy to see you.

Tannery Hollow Nature Trail

Open from May to October and approximately 2.5 kms long, the Tannery Hollow Nature Trail offers fresh air, beautiful scenery, exercise and chance encounters with wildlife. As with all nature trails, please respect the environment - if you pack it in, pack it out, and we've provided garbage barrels at the entrance for your convenience. Please note: some may have difficulty with the trail (uneven terrain, exposed roots), no dogs or bikes allowed as it's a wildlife habitat, wear appropriate footwear, no unsupervised children under 12, and we ask for a small fee for trail maintenance.

[pond as seen from trail]

The trail takes you along a pond where ducks are frequent visitors, winds through sun-filled areas of high grass and wildflowers, then passes beneath tall, sheltering maples, birches and spruce trees as it roughly parallels and occasionally crosses a stream (mostly dry in summer) in the ravine. Near the top of the trail, you emerge from the woods into a meadow filled with Queen Anne's Lace, clover and other wildflowers, and are offered a wonderful panoramic view.

"Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees." - John Muir
