You should make an effort to come out to see this place. Give the chance to see and touch some of the animals. They have it all done up for the Holidays and have a great collection of Photos and artefacts from the area.

Pigs and calves were outside, the pigs in a very small enclosure. Two large sheep were in a dark barn in a very small enclosure. The fancy chickens were in a crowded small cage in the same dark barn. I live in Wales where sheep...More

Do bring the kids and the kid at heart here to see the Working Farm and pet the animals. It is a little bit of history that is still alive and well in the city.

The Farm is amazing. It houses the oldest building in the area, and a collection of photos and artifacts that would rival any museum. The tea room serves great food, especially the scones/biscuits. A working farm in the middle of the city...priceless.
