About the Farm
In October of 2021 Indigenous Experiences announced a new tourism experience in Ottawa’s Greenbelt called Mādahòkì Farm, building on the growing interest in agritourism, farm-to-table culinary experiences and authentic cultural experiences from an Indigenous perspective.
The Farm is also the new home for a series of Indigenous events celebrating the seasons; Sīgwan (Spring), Tagwàgi (Autumn) and Pibòn (Winter) and the annual Summer Solstice Indigenous Festival formerly held at Vincent Massey Park. The Farm is the year-round home of an Indigenous Marketplace that promotes products made by Indigenous artisans and the permanent home for a growing herd of endangered Ojibwe Spirit Horses.Group bookings of authentic Indigenous experiences are available year round.
We are open to the public during winter from Thursday-Sunday 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. Come by and visit us, there is lots to do!
You do not need a booking to come visit during our open hours, however if you are a group of 20 or more, you can make a booking here.
