I took my Grandson and we had a fantastic 2 hours, looking round the farm, walking the cows to milk, watching milking and milking the goats ourselves. My Grandson had a wonderful time, very informative and friendly farmer.

Went to the farm with a youth group to milk the goats, was very sceptical before I got there. How wrong I was, it was so interesting and fun, Jon the farmer was so good with our group and made sure everyone was involved. Thanks
