lucky enough to visit the farm as they celebrated harvest - great afternoon with visitors included in whole experience as we processed round the farm. Impressed that they still managed some demonstrations too. Our second visit (the first excellent also)

Interesting and well presented working Victorian farm. Good exhibits and plenty of information. Friendly staff and lots going on. Free repeat admission within the same year, which is good if you want to make a repeat visit. The whole family enjoyed the visit.
