Our next farm tour is on Sunday 16th September. What better way is there to know that you are making the best food choices, than experiencing the farm firsthand? We love sharing how we produce healthy, nutritious award-winning food using our free range, pasture based, chemical free, natural farming principles. Our tours are family friendly and are a great way to teach children about where their food comes from. You will get to see: Free Range Chickens, Pastured Berkshire Pigs, Brahman & Nguni Cross Cattle, Permaculture Food Forest & Garden. At the end of the tour we offer a fun hay ride back to the farmhouse for the younger children and a sausage sizzle for those who have worked up an appetite!
