Cafe
The cafe has ample indoor seating and options for dining outdoors on a beautiful day too. Be an early riser and make it for their breakfast menu to enjoy fluffy buttermilk pancakes or scones with jersey cream & house jam.

Lunch is served after 11am, where you have a selection of beef, seafood, poultry, or the shared platter. Seniors have a discounted menu when visiting on a weekday.

There's a selection of dairy treats produced on-site, as well as take-home pies. The cheese and yogurt were popular, but not as popular as the ice cream. The ice cream was creamy but not overpowering, definitely a hit for both the young and young at heart.


Farm
The farm houses a variety of farm animals, such as rabbits, hens, roosters, calves, kids, geese, bulls, and goats. The goat paddock allows the goat to stick their heads through the fence and visitors are able to feed the goats with feed provided.

For those on a road trip, there is a playground and a large grassy area for the young ones to burn off some energy before setting off for your next destination.

This is a working farm so the cows have to be milked! Cow milking occurs at 2.30pm daily. Head to the end of the shed and go up the stairs to the viewing gallery where you can see cows walking in. Have a child napping in the stroller? Not to worry, watch the action on the ground level through large glass windows.



Shop
Just a quick stop to pick up some produce? Avoid the crowd and swing by the shop instead. The milk from the jersey cows is also used to make flavoured butter & soap. In addition to products from the farm, the shop also stocks fresh produce and products from local makers. Great way to have a taste of what the region offers.
