Oscar, our Golden Retriever, is crazy for attention. He is young, but strong and still learning social skills. We have numerous farm cats and most summers there are kittens to play with. The goose, chickens and ducks are in a pen scratching and quacking about. The 2 peacocks may be roaming around on our farm or next door. They always return to their favourite spots to roost for the night. The bunnies hop about freely in their warren. The alpacas, Zander and Sanchez, will surely come and say »hello« to you if you have some carrot tops! The young goats, Freddie and Spunky, will be so happy to spend time with you and show off their agility. The 2 sheep might join them in asking for a pat on the head.
The playhouse is a place of imaginative play for many children. It is a 2 story playhouse that our children nearly lived in during summers in their younger days. There are swings and a slide nearby. We also have a set of tall swings that give a thrill for those who can pump themselves to good heights. There is plenty of space for soccer or frisbee throwing. The torpedo ball table is a popular hangout spot.
This trail passes the rabbit warren, chicken pen, and the goats. Here you will find the largest trees on the farm and a bench to sit and reflect.
Take a walk and see what is growing. You might find Dora dishing out stories and experiences on gardening and preserving food. The garden patio is a favorite pizza picnic spot for many of our guests. Why not pick some veggies for your pizza? Choose the Garden Special pizza and be awed by the cornucopia of color, flavors, and textures. We chuckled at one child's choice of rhubarb, but we truly believe you should top yours with whatever rocks your garden pizza!
