Farm Stay activities are determined by the weather and what has been happening in the season. Activities are planned for a half day which then allows you the freedom of either relaxing or exploring our gorgeous area. Due to downsizing yet again as a result of the drought, farm stay visits are limited to three nights.
After eating a hearty country style breakfast sitting on the verandah with its views of the surrounding blue hills, you might like to take a walk through the paddocks. If you are quiet you can often hear and see many different forms of wildlife.
* The incredible vistas are simply stunning and a photographer's delight.
* Experience the joy of feeding the beautiful big brown eyed poddy calves (if they are available)
* Come and feed the chooks and collect the eggs, ready for that scrumptious country style cooked breakfast.
* Try your hand at milking a cow so that there is fresh milk for your breakfast.
* For those children who have always wanted to ride a horse, the opportunity is there for them to be led on a draught horse by a very experienced horsewoman.
*See what tricks Pearl, one of our Australian Draught horses, is up to. Make friends with these gentle giants - an apple will help you succeed.
*Watch the harnessing of the draught horses and be taken for a ride on the old fashion slide, stopping by the picturesque creek to boil the billy and enjoy the scrumptious home-made scones, complete with homemade jam and cream.
* Wander down to the workshop of "Ironsides Leather" where you have the opportunity to view
quality handmade leather products and talk to Ian about what goes into the making of them.This is purely a show and tell experience. However, should you wish, the products are for sale and can be custom made to suit your particular need. www.ironsidesleather.com
*Collect wood for the camp fire where you can sit and relax in the ambiance of the camp fire whilst the children toast their marshmallows.
*Remember the jaffle iron? Delicious toasted jaffles can be made on the fire at lunch time whilst sitting back enjoying that freshly boiled billy tea.
* Observe the making of a cheese.
*At times throughout the year there is also an opportunity to observe the sheep and cattle as they come into the yards for various reasons.
* Workshops in cheese making and leather work are available at additional costs.
