There are limited tickets available for each session, as we like to keep the sessions small. Everyone 2yrs & over requires their own ticket. Adults at children’s prices.

Please note these session starts at 10am for the morning and 1:30pm for the afternoon session and goes for approximately an hour and a half. Please make sure you arrive on time as we take everyone through the farm together and we’d hate for you to miss out on some of it. Feel free to bring a snack to have while you are enjoying the farm games.

 

This is a working farm. The ground is likely uneven, damp and undoubtedly earthy. There are plants that are pollinating, insects which might sting and animals that might nip. Please watch your step, stay on the path, keep your eye on your children and be aware of the natural world. By entering the farm you understand the risks and take full responsibility for yourself and/or your children. You understand that you are entering at your own risk and assume all liabilities.

 

PLEASE NOTE – All visitors to the farm are required to step through a disinfectant shoe bath. This is required as part of our organic certification and at the moment with the threat of Foot and Mouth disease on Australia’s door step, it is extra important. To understand the seriousness of FMD, if it is detected in any animal they will be euthanized. Under the recommendation of our vets and the DPI,  if you have been to Indonesian countries, including Bali, we, unfortunately cannot have you on the farm for 14 days.  Thank you for your understanding in this very serious matter. If you have any questions please always reach out to us.

See you on the farm soon!
