You’re welcome to take a picnic and you can stay on the farm from opening at 10am to closing at 5pm if you like.
The farm is home to goats, sheep, red squirrels, horses, and cattle as well as more exotic creatures such as chipmunks. It also boasts fishponds, play areas, a café, and many picnic areas.
