We took our three grandsons to the farm for the first time. What a wonderful surprise. No it's not bright and shiny nor is it trying to be something it isn't but friendly and with a family feel about it. The boys loved it -...More

For a small urban farm it's great for little ones. If you have larger kids it's ok but little ones really enjoy it

It's a small local farm but it's well looked after, the animals are all clean and well fed. It's nice for an hour so in your day to have a slow wander around with the kids. There is a play area too.
