Run by the owners? We guess. They certainly keep busy. The young man in the park, was amazing, wherever we were, he was to be seen working. He was also very helpful. The cafe was pleasant with friendly staff .

While I totally get it is essentially a working farm it just seems like it’s pay your money and get on with it. The animals seem fine and you can get quite close and pet most of them. It’s been a while since my last...More
