What you'll do

For the morning booking: Guests will get to start in the poultry coop where they will be able to interact with the ducks and chickens, and perhaps collect their eggs. They will learn about feed and the mix of different species and their needs. They will open the door and watch the ducks waddle to the pond (seasonally). From there they will enter the paddock where they can interact with the donkeys and the horses and learn each of their stories. Guests will be informed about rescue animals and natural alternate methods of care. The guests will be taught how to clear their thinking in order to allow the animals to do the same and be rewarded by the therapeutic energy of the equine.
For the afternoon booking: The poultry will already be free range but the guests will be able to sit by the pond (seasonally) and feed the ducks as well as have the chickens come to them for feed.
Other things to note
This is a hands on experience with animals. Guests are asked to be calm and allow the animals to come to them. Children must be supervised at all times. One on one (adult to child) is required. There is a good possibility you will get dirty. Hand washing will be available.

This experience is hosted by both Sarah and Joanna. Born on opposite sides of the world we found each other through our children and discovered we both had the same love of animals. We have both been passionate about animals since birth. We have invested a lot of time into learning about gentle horsemanship and want to spread the word. We both want to educate about the care and ethical treatment of animals and show people how fun and therapeutic animals can be.

We had a great time visiting the farm with my 1 year old and six year old. It was a really fun, informative and hands on experience and I would definitely recommend it to others!

This was such a nice experience! We got a tour around the farm and learned so much about the animals and their care. My toddler son had an amazing time seeing the animals up close and having the chance to feed them. The hosts are very knowledgeable and really care about their animals, which is amazing.

My husband and I had an incredible time with Sarah, Joanne, and all the animals. We spent so much time with the animals...up close and personal! Being with the horses and donkeys was a very zen experience. All because Sarah and Joanne truly love and take care of the animals in a beautiful way. We had lovely conversations while being with the animals and over a nice campfire. Thank you Sarah and Joanne for your hospitality and for beautiful memories :)
