Owner description: Open every day from the 1st of April until Sunday 5th of November 2017. Northern Ireland’s Only Open Diary Farm! We are not just a farm but a fantastic family experience with many opportunities for children and parents to learn and play together. Our staff are always on hand to make sure you and your family have a fantastic day out and we all hope to see you soon! June 2017 marks the 30th year our family farm has been open to the public! We make ensure that the kids get a real hands on experience with our animals, letting them handle and feed our animals with our staff. We have many different play areas for the kids as well to make sure they have as much fun as possible. On average families spend 2-3 hours with us. Many stay for a whole day of fun. We are opening our new farm themed Play Village. This state of the art play center encourages children to learn and develop through role play. It is super fun and includes a milking parlour, farm shop and and vet's clinic to name a few.

We visited the farm on a very wet and windy bank holiday Monday. However we still had a great time and would highly recommend! Our twin 8 year old boys loved the go karts, the slides, the puppies, the chicks, the zip line, the barrel and pony rides etc etc. As it was a bank holiday we also got to enjoy extra activities such as an indoor bouncy castle and magic show. Our one year old loved the animals and seemed to have a fantastic day. The food in the cafe was lovely and very reasonably priced. The staff were lovely and very friendly and attentive. All in all we would highly recommend a visit. We will definitely be back!

Thank you so much for such a fantastic review. We were so dissapointed that there was another bank holiday of rain. 4th one in a row for us. We were very pleased that we managed to move the most of our activities indoors, so as everyone could enjoy them.
So pleased that you managed to have such a good day.
Thank you for taking the time to write your review, hope to see you again soon.

Friendly open farm, grandkids had a great time feeding goats, lambs etc. Tractor rides and pony rides made for great fun. The staff were really friendly and always willing to answer questions. Maybe the extras like tractor rides and pony rides could be included in the admission fee, or maybe at discounted rate, the fee for a family of 4 was £22, but we ended up spending more due to these rides, we don't mind but maybe families on restricted budgets may find it expensive for a couple of hours out.

Thank you for rating our farm so highly. It means a lot to us. I will make sure to pass on to all our staff.
A family ticket covers 6 people, 4 is the minimum, so you can get 6 in for £22. We do offer our tractor rides at a reduced family rate at again 6 people for £6.
Unfortunately our costs are too high ourselves to be able to include the rides in the admission fee. However we do do lots of special deals for the families on a tighter budget such as, every Monday in August our family tickets are half price, we do many different group on and grab one etc deals throughout the year. One coming up for Halloween. During term time every Thursday our rides are free. So we do our best to make sure that everyone can enjoy our farm and get the most out of it. If it wasn't for our own costs being so high we would be able to offer more.
Hope you can understand this. Thank you again for your review.

What a delight to read such a lovely review. Cant tell you how much it means to us. I will make sure to pass it on to all our staff.
It can get quite exhausting running the open farm, reviews like this gives us that extra push we need every so often. Thank you so much

We took the kids (3 & 6), and they had a ball. They loved the milking, pony ride, pet feeding, puppies and barrel run. Added bonus that they give you hand wipes and chicken feed when you arrive, the lady on the till was very pleasant. All the staff were particularly interested and helpful with the kids. We didn't eat in the cafe so can't comment on this. £22 for a family ticket and spent a whole afternoon there. Toilets were a little grubby but overall really enjoyed our visit.

I can highly recommend a trip to this attraction. Staff were eager to help and make the visit enjoyable for all our family. The Cafe food and service was excellent and we had a brilliant day. The events and equipment are creatively presented and could not fail to please.
