Sunnybrook Farm Museum celebrates the early days of Alberta farming. Find your rural roots as you explore Red Deer’s oldest farm! Imagine the lives of pioneer farm families – working in the field, milking the family cow in the dairy barn, repairing a plow in the blacksmith shop, or baking bread in the summer kitchen.
Join us as we travel back in time. Chat with “men at work” in the restoration shop. Experience the modern conveniences – of 1905 – on a visit to the log house. Try your hand at feeding chickens and enjoy a wagon ride, special event of demonstration of lovingly restored farming equipment (seasonal).
Sunnybrook Farm Museum occupies 10 acres of the original 1899 homestead of pioneer farmer James Bower. At its largest the farm encompassed the communities of Sunnybrook, Bower and Westerner. Many of the Museum buildings are original farm buildings, including the Bower’s house, barns and workshop.
