Our dream came true - we lived on a farm! Was just a few days but was perfect, and gave my young son a real understanding of farm life and where produce comes from.

We cared for the chooks and collected eggs for our breakkie, herded and milked goats, fed sheep and alpacas, learned about the fruit trees and bushgrub they're growing, my son had his first pony ride .. and it was relaxing and peaceful too!

The family treated us like really good friends and couldn't have been more welcoming.

We will definitely be back.

None of us wanted to leave! Andrew and Anna made us all feel like friends and not just guests. Our boys (Gabriel 6, Daniel 5 and Dad) can't wait to go back. It was a great hands on experience. It was all about "helping" Andrew with the jobs morning and evening. The tyre swing was also a great hit for the boys as well as the fishing in the dam from the paddle boats (and yes they both caught fish)! Despite the fact that it rained we were still able to get about the farm and experience the animals. It was summer for us, so no log fires in the cabin in the evenings, but we did have a BBQ every night.

We are just back from our third visit to Honeycomb Valley Farm. We just love it there and will continue to come back whenever we can. This weekend we fed two week old Steffi the baby goat, milked Ivy, rode Holywood (horse) and Cindy (pony), saw the baby alpacas and calves, played on the tyre swing, swam in the pool and had a bonfire. My five year old daughter cried for nearly an hour when we left, so I will be booking again straight away. I would highly recommend this if you have younger kids who love animals and farm life. Andrew and Anna are fabulous hosts who provide a huge range of farm activites and a really relaxing holiday.

We have stayed twice and will be back. Anna and Andrew do all they can to make you welcome and more importantly help you relax and unwind. You can do as much as you like or as little as you like when it comes to the farm activities, but when it came to our young kids (both under 5 yrs, Josh and Ruby), they couldn't get enough of the farm animals...collecting eggs, feeding the goats, patting the fluffy rabbits, checking the cows on the quad bike and our 4.5 year old boy just loved to steer the quad sitting in front of Andrew...they had a ball. The camp fire under the stars and toasted marsh mellows were a treat along with eating the fresh free range eggs collected by the kids....as good as it gets! Nabiac was handy and close for fresh supplies and even a winery nearby. The pool was good for a refreshing dip but the farm activities kept us mostly clear of the pool. Great learning experience for kids. Andrew and Anna love their organic veges and are a wealth of knowledge. Treat yourself and the family. Great halfway stop if travelling up or down the coast. A real home away from home. Cabin accomodation is lovely and comfy with nice log fire to help relax and unwind after a day on the farm. A big thank you to Anna, Andrew and the kids.

We visited Honeycomb Valley Farm for 3 days over the July school holidays 2008. What a fantastic time we had. I'll quickly run through the highlights:
The farm
Had pretty much every animal (with exception of pigs) that our children got up close and personal with . Every morning they would join Anna & Andrew on the morning run of collecting eggs, letting the animals out, saddling up the horses, or just taking a walk around the propery. A tractor ride, or quad bike rides was also an option. Then from 11 - 3pm we'd explore the town or go into Foster.
From 3pm the kids would join the family again (and ourselves) to wander around the farm , moving the animals around the paddocks and feeding them and locking them up for the night.
A real treat was two of the goats had just given brth so there was a lot of excitement around the goats.

The Accomodation
We stayed in a great little 2 bedroom cabin which was just fantastic, Lighting a fire each night (and trying to keep it lit) kept up warm throughout the night. Anna delivered fresh eggs and bacon on our first day which was in fact enough to last us our entire stay.
There were 2 cabins not far from the main house (walking distance) and Andrew did have plans to extend so I'm not sure what it is like now.
The accomodation is very comfortable.

Surrounding Area
Nabiac town is small but what a great pub with excellent food and a dedicated kids soundproof video room (right next to where you dine). Kids meals were fantastic too. and the old meat raffle still exists. Not that we won.
During the day we went into Foster - went to the movies, playgrounds ..ther was enough to fill in our 2days. But the kids couldnt wait until 3pm came around so they could get back to the farm for the round up of animals

Andrew and Anna
You couldn't meet 2 more hospitable people. Their lovely 3 children were also great hosts , needless to say our children had a fantastic time. It is not a 'structured' farm stay (like some are). It is very much 'go with the flow' and join in all the activites of farm life.
The fact that every animal on the farm has a name - gives you the impression that they treat everyone on the 'farm' as family
I would highly reccommend this farm stay - you wont be disapointed . There is plenty to do, great hosts, wonderful animals .

Eloise (4), Mitchell (10) and I recently stayed at Honeycomb Valley and had the most fabulous, fun and relaxing time. The best thing about our stay was the endless activities for the kids, hours of farm activities - feeding chicks, brushing rabbits, cutting alpacas toes nails, milking goats, checking the paddocks - then also pony rides, tractor rides, bon fires - all under the supervision of Andrew and Anna. Between activities, the kids played in the heated pool, while I read the paper and dozed off! What a treat. I would highly recommmend this, well worth the trip from Sydney and we will definetly go back again - and soon.
