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!!
