Quesnel, Farms & Markets
A great morning farm stop just outside of Quesnel is Moose Meadow Farm. They have a wide array of animals including lamas, ducks, chickens, horses and even a dog that looks like a spirit bear! The lamas are friendly and it was so neat to see them come running in from the fields when owner Heloise called them from the fence. She showed us around the farm after giving us a tour and explanation of birch syrup production (the farms main product) and it was really neat to see all of the animals wandering around in the sun and interacting with one another without issue. The farm is a lovely setting and the little gift shop that she has is a great place to stock up on souvenirs such as the birch syrup made on site, alpaca socks (from wool sheared from their alpacas), as well as other crafts and keepsakes made by local artisans.
