About Barney’s

We LOVE the Drumheller Valley and can’t wait to meet you this summer! A few years ago the idea starting a fun farm around Drumheller had been tossed around.

We didn’t want this to be just another corn maze so the team at Canalta in Drumheller started brainstorming ideas on what might work as a new attraction in the community. After reminiscing about the family history of the first ferry crossing in the area, reviewing the stories of gritt during the coal rush and the famous discoveries of dinosaur bones everywhere. The idea of celebrating everything agricultural, coal-related, and dinosaurs around the area would be A LOT of fun and what brought us here today!

So get ready to join us this summer and celebrate everything amazing about the #DRUMHELLERVALLEY with the Barneys Barnyard, Boomtown, and Boneyard!
Over 15 acres of unique and fun badlands style activities that everyone will enjoy!.
