On our latest trip out to Pender we decided to stop at DeMille’s to have a look at the farm animals. I have to say DeMille’s have done a great job with bringing a farm experience to a city in interior B.C. , Demilles have your usual farm fare like cows, goats and the like but Demiles includes some more unusual animals: emus and peacocks are just some of the examples of unusual animals that you wouldn’t expect to be on North American farm. My experiences at DeMille’s have been pretty awesome as there is also a market which sells fresh produce, a corn maze to get lost in when its the fall and a ice cream stand that looks excellent but I have tried ice cream not yet anyway.
The animals are great to see especially the cows which look like they are fun loving frolicking little critters especially the calves like “oh my goodness!” they are so cute and when go to nuzzle their mother its like “that’s so cute”. Then there is the hen coop with the hens and roosters being in the same area as the peacock which is a very vocal bird. I like to think the roosters and the peacock try to outdo each other in the loudness of their cries. Then right next door to the fowl are those muddy pigs, I mean no wonder my mom calls my shared room with my brother a ‘pigsty’ when it gets messy. Pigs are messy but I guess so I better not base my room on their example. Then you have the goats who like butting heads and frolicking with each other and they bunk out with their amigos the emus. Boy can the emus also be vocal probably more vocal than the roosters and the peacock combined when considering how vocal each three of these fowl can be. All in all your experience at DeMille’s will be a great one and watch out for the goats!
There are two songs by Corb Lund a Alberta native from Taber and is maybe a, great country music artist if you are looking for something a little extraordinary that are about cows or mention cows: ” Cows Around” and “Talking Veterinarian Blues”
