Activities on The Farm
Explore the farm, bush and orchard
Kid enjoy the tyre swing
Relax in the hammocks
We installed hammocks in various parts of the property.
So if you’ve done your dash of adventuring for the day or just feel like chilling out, just put your feet up and just listen to the birds or read a good book!
Take in the views
Watch the pear harvest
Try our pear honey
We have quite a few beehives on the property near our pear orchard.
The hives are managed by Nelson Honey, a local apiarian company, who have discovered that our bees produce a rather different, pure pear honey!
Pure white and deliciously tasting like… you’ve got it! PEARS! Try some and if you like it, we’ve got some for sale!
Watch the sheep shearing
Our sheep get shorn once a year around the end of November, beginning of December.
This is to protect them from parasites during the hot summer months – the wool, while we do sell it, is unfortunately almost worthless.
If you happen to be around when the sheep are shorn, you are more than welcome to watch.
Feed the ducks and geese
Meet the sheep
Collect fresh eggs
We have a good dozen of mixed breed heritage chickens (don’t worry! We got rid of the noisy rooster…).
They are more of a retirement village than a dedicated bunch of efficient layers, so don’t expect too much of them.
However, most of the time there is some bounty to be found in their nests. Your kids will love collecting warm eggs!
Say hi to the cows
We usually have one cow and her calf on the property. They are great bush bashers and always willing to help mowing long grass.
The cows are curious and friendly characters and enjoy coming up to our guests and being talked to.
Please always supervise your children around the cows! They are large animals and can do some damage!
