The children will be overwhelmed with excitement as they head off on the hayride for a real "hands on" farm experience , helping with the farm chores, feeding the livestock and cuddly nursery animals. They'll also milk the cow, bottle feed the calves, feed Chloe the pig and watch our working dog muster the sheep for that old favourite shearing demonstration.
During most weekends and holiday times we run a kids club during the day and the night at a small cost per child allowing you to enjoy a relaxing dinner and more time to enjoy that well deserved break.
Private horse riding lessons are also available at very reasonable rates, advanced bookings are essential.

Our farm is nestled in the Central Coast Highlands New South Wales and is uniquely fed by the natural spring water flowing from the Somersby Plateau which helps our trees to produce healthy tasty pecan nuts.
We are 100% Australian owned and 100% Australian grown. We grow our nuts the organic way. We never use chemical insecticides or fertilisers and we don’t genetically modify our trees either.
We ship our nuts directly to you from our farm and only crack our nuts so there is no contamination of other nuts.
