What You'll Get
The family is the basic unit of society—yet statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the antique Double Big Mac you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $17, you get an Adventure Farm family admission package for four and four jars of honey at Clovermead in Aylmer (a $35.08 value, including HST).
Clovermead offers family-friendly attractions and apiary-fresh honey in an old-fashioned farm setting maintained by the Hiemstras, a family of third-generation beekeepers. With admission to the Adventure Farm, quartets of children and adults can explore a play zone, a mini pioneer town, and pastoral attractions (a $6.78 value/person, including HST). Inside the Bee Discovery station, located in the restored Brownsville train station, guests can gawk at ceiling-high display hives and learn about the well-organized, rent-free lives of miniature honeysmiths. Visitors can also stroll along shaded, wooded trails or scale a mountain made of straw bales, and pint-size adventurers can test the laws of physics by sending themselves down the Black Hole slide. Pedal-powered go-karts convey single or paired riders around a racetrack, and walk-up pens grant farm animals a chance to see humans up close.
Housed inside a restored log cabin, the Honey Gift Shop grants guests tastes of more than 20 varieties of unpasteurized honey. With this Groupon, guests receive four 45-gram jars of Summer Blossom honey, which draws its flavour from its flower of origin, its colouring from the nutrients in its depth, and its perfect diction from rigorous elocution lessons (a $1.99 value each).
