We were in Bathurst for only a couple of days and we wanted our little niece to have first hand farm experience. We were unable to book a day tour ahead of time but the owners Farmer Ken and Elaine nevertheless gave us a grand tour with such a very short notice, that is - we were just 6 kilometres away from the farm! The couple were very, very accommodating and we never felt that we had inconvenienced them at all. Such hospitality! Our little one held day-old chicks, fed the chooks, rode on Cody the Shetland pony, patted the lambs, had a tractor ride and played with the dogs, Carly and Ruby. Elaine gave us such a warm welcome and such a wonderful unforgettable experience. If you have kids and are in Bathurst, Barcoos is a lovely place to visit. Your kids will love it.
