Have been many times and can't rate it highly enough for those with kids under 5. It's free but be sure to donate what you can afford as there aren't many better ways to keep a toddler happy for an hour.

Took my two year old granddaughter and had a good view of the animals. There wasn’t an opportunity to handle the animals but she’s a little young for that. She loved the play area, but I was disappointed that the cafe wasn’t open (weekends only).

The farm is within walking distance to city center. There are goats, chickens, pigs, cows and a garden area. The perfect place to spend a few hours and support local farms. I really enjoyed visiting.
