“We loved it!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Stayed during 4th wk of Nov with 2 kids (below 6), my mum and my wife. We have been to farmstay in NZ, Perth and Brisbane and this is clearly the cleanest one we've been to. Rooms are very spacious, bathroom is spacious too and Tara is a fantastic host! Bed and pillows are very comfortable!

As what others in this forum says, Tara's breakfast, especially her bread & jam ... Is world class!! Eat it warm!! Tara is also very generous with the breakfast basket!! Location is pretty good as it is just mins away from Richmond town centre.. and abt 30-40mins from Hobart.

Tara's daily mrng farm activities include touring her plantations (i forget most of her plant names ! :) ..... except her delicious green peas freshly pluck from her precious plant... seeing that my kids love it.. she was very generous to pluck whatever remains on her plant for them.. despite telling us that her daughters absolutely love those too) ... feeding Jake (her 14yr old golden, looks 3-4 yrs old to us!), Flossie (her beautiful white horse)... 2 rabbits.. hamsters.. gooses, duck, chickens ... we got to touch a young sheep too..

Tks Dr Tara! We absolutely enjoyed our stay with you! Hope to see you again if we're back in Tasmania! I wish you have a fantastic 2013 with great harvests!!

Room Tip: Only 1 house... so you get EXCLUSIVE service :)

Thanks for your marvellous review and for staying. We enjoyed your company and you're always welcome to sample from the vegetable garden - I always try to plant a little extra so guests can taste food as it should be - and I love seeing the kids faces when they eat vegetables and really enjoy them!

ideal for trips to hobart, sorrel, richmond...

Stayed here for over a week with 2 kids (9 & 4) in October 2012.
The property was excellent with quality furnishings and large enough for a family of four with two bedrooms available.
Our kids didn't want to leave the farm during the day as there was lots to do around the farm and the breakfast basket supplied each morning was first class.
Tara's hospitality was also top notch.
The bad news - our eldest cried on the last night as he didn't want to leave ! He misses you and the farm,Tara.
All the best,
Allan, Helen, Aidan & Lindsay.

We love these three days in Tara's farm, especially my little boy. The room is large and very comfortable bed. My sons love staying here and enjoy the farm activity. They like feeding chicken and ducks and collecting eggs. Really very good experience for children to live in this farm. Tara is very kind and helpful. Her bread and jams are excellence! Thanks very much. Highly recommand to stay here for few days. The sky, the sheep, the pony, the dog Jake, the ducks and chicken, all lovely and wonderful. It should be even much better if we stay there in summer, grapes and berries. Although we came in winter, we also find everything interesting and feel warm given by Tara's hospitality. We hope we can come again.

We recently took a trip to Hobart for a weekend away for Mothers Day (2012) and we spent 2 nights at Tara's Farmstay and I cant say how much we enjoyed it. The kids (4 & 12) just loved feeding the animals and collecting the eggs and our breakfast basket was THE BEST! Awesome home baked bread and lots of provisions to keep us going for the day. We toured all around the area plus we took in the sights of Hobart, Mt Wellington (and there was snow!) and parts of the Huon Valley as well - all from Tara's at Richmond. The hospitality from Tara and her family was 2nd to none and the beds were comfy and the apartment was lovely and clean, bright and airy. I would not hesitate in recommending Tara's for a weekend or a week long stay.

Thanks for choosing to spend your Mothers day weekend with us Helen. The photos you've posted are great and I especially like the one with the kids holding their hoard of eggs from the chickens - the grins on their faces are priceless! :)
