Whether you are a adult or a child, this is one very lovely, impressive, awesome and fabulous place to spend the time. Both the farm and the factory are just brilliant. You could spend all day here if you want.

Hi, I am sorry for your less pleasant experiences when coming to visit us later in the day. It is totally unacceptable and will be addressed with the staff involved.

The drive here alone is worth it. We went with our young children because they wanted to climb the rocking horse. All the activities were cheap to do and the cafe was very family friendly. The kids were well occupied during our visit. You could...More
