We visited with our two kids recently. The animals on the farm were a real highlight for the kids. Chickens, and ducks, and turkeys, and sheep, and cows, and pigs, and horses. Our 3 year old got to milk a cow which flipped her out a bit at first! We stayed in the Wallaby cottage (true to its name there were wallabies out the front each evening) which was really quite nice for its age. Expect rustic and you'll be pleasantly surprised. For the price it could do with a few modern features (there's no radio reception out there so maybe an iPod or iPhone compatible stereo eg) but you don't really go to a farm stay to sit inside I guess. I found it really relaxing and could have sat out on the porch all day, but my wife was looking for the mod cons. The only downside for us was the food - think school camp. There were some really nice baked breads and quiches and don't get me wrong - we did not go hungry, but for the price it should be better.
