Petting an ostrich is a unique opportunity that can only be found in a select few locations. Seamlessly combining education and conservation with fun, Ostrich Land is one of those places, providing an opportunity to get up close to an Ostrich. With something for all the family, Ostrich Land supplies a diverse and exciting experience, making it one of the go to locations in the Ontario tourist scene. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to feed an ostrich, then Ostrich Land, Ontario, is the place for you. The family-owned farm is a haven for the unique animal and is home to three distinct species – black, red, and blue-necked. Furthermore, rabbits, ducks, alpacas, and chickens have found a home at Ostrich Land, dwelling comfortably in the applicable village. Providing numerous once-in-a-lifetime experiences, Ostrich Land prioritises learning, with each area offering a lesson about the animal’s life, diet, and habitat. Indeed, Ostrich Village is the epitome of ‘fun for all the family’ as there is something for everyone, from buying fresh vegetables, to coming face-to-face with the giant bird. Built from the ground up by a husband-and-wife team, Ostrich Land was designed by a family, for family. Henceforth, this is an element that runs through the heart of the company. Both adults and children alike have consistently been enchanted by the flightless bird and have further been impressed by the vast range of amenities on the land, including the café area where they can try the Crazy Ostrich Breakfast. However, family is not the only thing that the company values. Two of its core principles are sustainability and education – the farm hopes to teach people, especially children, the importance of preserving nature and protecting animals through direct contact. As the only public Ostrich Farm in Ontario, Ostrich Land is truly a rare gem. Yet the company continues to excel, and in spite of its rarity, has further bolstered its profile with its vast range of ostrich products. From eggs to leather, and oil to skincare products, Ostrich Farm boasts an impressive range of uncommon products. Ostrich oil, for example, has been used for thousands of years and is even said to have been used by Cleopatra herself. The product offers numerous benefits and can be used in a plethora of ways. As it is rapidly absorbed into the skin it makes an excellent moisturiser and it has been noted for its potent anti-aging properties. Moreover, Ostrich Oil has proven itself against a range of skin ailments, including cuts, rosacea, and eczema. It is with all this in mind that it should serve as no shock that the company has garnered numerous five-star reviews and has become a popular Ontario tourist attraction. Angie Knuth, an Ontario local, praised the company in her Google review, ‘I pass by the spot all the time but had no idea how informative and entertaining the place was. You get up close and interactive with the Ostriches while learning so much about them.’ Additionally, Ashley B further proves the quality of the farm, stating, ‘Amazing experience - my son and I had a blast! The people who run the farm are so personable and friendly. The food is a must try!’ Henceforth, 2022 is set to be a busy year as it continues to please the thousands of customers that pass through its gates. There are a multitude of plans set to come into fruition, including the introduction of a pizza oven and patio area, the creation of a two-day outdoor education camp for children with a one-night sleepover at the farm, and its continued exploration of antibodies in partnership with Seneca College.
