An amazing place to go with the family and friends. The farm is so nice and clean and you can have a tour round on on a tractor ride. The history of the place is amazing and would highly recommend.

My toddler and I are season pass holders and live locally. We love visiting the farm, the staff are always welcoming and friendly. My little boy loves the cart and tractor rides. The cafe is lovely too. Will be renewing our yearly passes for sure!
