The ice cream and candies are always worth the stop. As we have a toddler we also considered visiting the farm. A big hand painted sign said to purchase tickets from the café. Looking over the fence it would have cost $12 for our family to see chickens and ducks;- albeit more gourmet than at our local pond. We chose... More

Stopped off here with our little girl between xmas and new year (busiest week of the year for!). Cafe was completely dead but thought we'd order a pizza. Really bad, dough seemed not cooked and it was very small for $11, we had one piece and left it. Such a shame as a great stop off for people heading north... More

We used to love Lindale farm, we were so excited to be able to finally take our son! Unfortunately the number of animals has dwindled to almost none. The pathways were difficult to use and the animals looked terribly sad. A real disappointment for what used to be a cherished memory to our family.

To go to the farm you have to purchase your tickets at the cafe. It took a long time to get our food but it was tasty. the stafff were friendly and you could choose food from the menu board or in the cabinets. It is a peaceful place to sit and rest inside or outside (which overlooks the farm).... More

Wow I left that place livid! Farm park a mess, don't recommend unless you like being surrounded by 50+ hens and roosters. Terrible customer service at cafe, who also short changed us. So many better activities to do in the area than waste time and money there.

We liked the Lindale farm for years until about a year ago it was closed for renovation (?). Yesterday we visited it and found that only literally: sheeps, goats and horses are available. Just a small backyard you could go through within 5 minutes and pay $3 for it. It definitely was a ruined instead, we would have gone to... More
