For those who aren't able to stay at the Farmstay, we do offer a guided walk to meet and feed our friendly farm animals, as well as a brief talk on how we run our 200 acre bull beef farm. You will have the opportunity to say hello to some of our pet sheep, 4 alpaca, Eponine the Kune Kune pig, collect the chicken eggs and feed the ducks. Sometimes you will also meet our pet cows Demelza and Millie, it just depends on which part of the farm they happen be at the time. Usually we are accompanied by one of our working dogs. In late July to early August we are lambing and in late August through to early October we are rearing calves.
We provide gumboots for you to wear so remember to bring a pair of socks, and we don't recommend wearing your fanciest clothes, it is a farm after all!
