  • A great attraction, with lots to see. We loved seeing the cows being milked by the rotary milking process at 2.30pm but if someone was there to explain the processes, that would be better. What a sham...  more »

  • Had a lovely light lunch here. Friendly and prompt service, great food and coffee in a really open and attractive environment. Beautiful rural outlook. Also features a chocolatier viewing room and free tasting of some excellent local cheeses.
  • Great place to have lunch. Food was good. Had the egg bacon burger it was really nice and fresh. The cheese platter is a must for everyone. And don’t get me started on the chocolate. A few things for the kids to do. Pat the calfs and watch the cows being milked. Really a nice relaxed place for a Saturday lunch.
  • The worst thing about this place - seeing the animals (particularly in the animal nursery) in pretty average conditions. They have heaps of water which was great, but we saw a calf sleeping on poo. And most of them had poo on them. Sad sight to see.
  • Great stop on your way through the tablelands. The kids can feed the animals, watch chocolates and cheeses being made plus the food was very homely and delicious.
  • The staff were very friendly and knoledgable and helpful l would recomend everyone shoule visit
