Pet baby calves, learn about the history of the farm, watch as staff milk cows, and observe processing and bottling in the factory. A kiosk on site sells ice cream, yogurt, and milkshakes. You can cook up your own food on the farm's barbecues if you want to enjoy a picnic. Bring a cooler with you if you want to carry products off the site for later consumption.

  • We did the farm tour and it was fantastic. My 7 year old daughter loved it and now knows where her milk comes from. It's a working farm so you get to see them bottle the milk etc. You can taste test t...  more »

  • This was the first time visiting this venue. Would definitely come back. We had been planning to come to this place for months and certainly glad we came. We accidentally visited on a fun day so there was plenty of ‘other activities’ to do when we visited. It was great to have a look around a dairy farm and educate them where our dairy products come from. Suggestion to the company: lactose free products!
  • What a wonderful break from busy life. Great family operation that gives a very up close and interactive your of the dairy. Our kids especially liked feeding the calf with a bottle.
  • Great place to take the kids and let them run around while the parents can chill out with a coffee. You can take your own food and have a picnic after the tour. It wasn't a horrible day out, but they do charge for toddlers $11, and the milk they had on display in the tasting area was due to expire in the next couple days. Also, it would have been great to have alot more contact with the farm animals, instead of being walked through a shed of relics.
  • Kid friendly an very interesting! Well worth the trip and reasonable cost. Bring an esky and buy fresh milk and other dairy products at the door. Yum!
  • Such a great day out! You get feed the calves, drink milk straight from the teat and sample all the yoghurt. Tour guide Lauren was super lovely. And all for only 11 coin!
