We are a working farm and as such many aspects of farm life will be visible to you when you visit. We normally have calves on view in the farm yard, and the main milking herd can be seen depending upon the time of day you visit. During the warmer months when the cows are free-grazing, we often bring the cows across the road from nearby fields. Afternoon milking commences at 1530 each day.
We kindly request that you do not climb on any gates or feed the animals. But take as many photos as you want, they're very photogenic!
Since there are animals here on the farm we prefer there to be as little visiting animals as possible for biosecurity; but
well behaved dogs are allowed on a lead. We ask them not to get close to the farm animals because of the risk of disease and infection. All waste is the owner's responsibility.
For our security and safety we have closed circuit television cameras on the farm
Please be mindful that the farm is also a family home
The car park is clearly marked on the right hand side of the road to the farm entrance. Any overflow parking will be clearly defined during busier months. Please ensure you are careful when crossing the road, especially with young children.
