At the farm we got to feed and pat the animals. We saw deer’s, lambs, goats, chicks, ducks, rabbits, lamas and turkey's.
At the farm you had the opportunity to walk around and feed the goats and lambs and see some older animals. After the feeding we were able to milk the cow and bottle feed the baby lambs and kids. They also bought out the baby chicks, ducks and rabbits for the kids to pat and hold.
Little Opinions really enjoyed the day and would love to come back again! The highlights were milking the cow and squirting the milk everywhere, it also felt really funny milking the cow but it was fun to try. We loved eating our picnic lunch at the farm and having a pony ride at the end of the day. The only thing that Little Opinion's didn't like was the big animals pushed the little animals out of the way when people were trying to feed them😮 but we tried really hard to feed the little ones that kept missing out.
Little Opinions guest blogger Mitchell liked feeding the goats with his own bucket of feed
and had a great time at the farm! he especially liked patting the deer that was roaming at lunchtime.
Mums big opinion, it was a nice (smallish) farm and the staff were all very friendly and made sure that every child had the opportunity to pat, milk or feed the animals so no one missed out. They only take a certain amount of people each day which means you must contact them and book ahead. They only take cash no credit card facilities.
The farm has picnic facilities, so we took our own lunch to eat after the tour, they only sell ice cream and a few drinks so no food outlets to purchase hot food or sandwiches for lunch.
Entry was $15 for adults and $12 for children, the bucket of food was $5 each and Pony rides were $5. The money goes towards the farm saving the young animals.
They are very strict on opening times so you must arrive on time for the tour otherwise you may be turned away.
