Lima, a Jersey cow, is being milked during a hand-milking demonstration by a farmhand at Maplewood Farm in North Vancouver, BC, Canada on Sept. 1, 2011. Lima was born on July 1, 2008 in Aldergrove on the pastoral Valtallina Jersey Farm and came to Maplewood Farm in early August 2010.
Maplewood Farm is a must-visit place for kids and is home to over 200 domestic animals and birds. It offers hand-milking demonstrations, pony rides, a petting area, and special events all year round.
The 5-acre Maplewood Farm was started in the early 1900s by Akiyo Kogo at the foot of Mount Seymour on the banks of Seymour River. It operated as a dairy farm for most of its existence, and by 1970 was the last remaining farm in North Vancouver. It is currently operated and maintained by the District of North Vancouver as a fun and educational farm.
During the twenties, the farm developed into a thriving dairy, delivering fresh milk and cream to customers from Deep Cove to Lonsdale for almost three decades. By 1970, agriculture had all but disappeared from North Vancouver but luckily the farm land came under the protection of the District Parks Department, being preserved for future generations to enjoy a truly rural experience in our ever expanding urban area.
Officially opened to the public in 1975, Maplewood Farm strives to provide a unique experience, incorporating enjoyment, education and a recollection of the rural heritage of this pastoral 5-acre setting.
