Our area is also steeped in Ned Kelly history if you are interested in following his footsteps via the Ned Kelly Touring Route, Glenrowan & the Ned Kelly Vault Museum in Beechworth all are well worth a visit.
We are a working farm so you will hear animal noises at times, particularly at feeding times
The farm is home to a menagerie of animals including three friendly dogs.
At times we will be out and about feeding animals and attending to jobs around the farm
Depending on the time of year you may even be lucky enough to view the birth of calves or lambs, which is very exciting
We are a small working hobby farm that is constantly changing and evolving.
Our farm animals are mostly tame and friendly although because some are large they can be potentially unpredictable
This includes strictly no pets, service or support animals allowed.
Guests have access to the entire farm except the machinery paddock and the main homestead
Guests are also welcome to take a walk on the property and enjoy the views and gorgeous sunsets over the surrounding hills.
We do ask that you respect our animals and ‘very importantly’ please leave all gates, open or closed, as you find them.
We look forward to seeing you at our farm one day !!
