    Interesting little place, You get to essentially walk around their farm and look at animals. Great place for kids. If its just adults going, i wouldn't bother unless your trying to kill time.

    SIMPLE FUN like you don't get nowadays. Just park your car. follow the signs. Walk around the farm to see and pet the many farm animals, newborn calf to cow, sheep, goat, donkey, horse, pigs, rabbits, cats and dogs. We LOVED it. There is a little 30min walking trail too. Pretty muddy in the winter and not too many animals around but a little cat hunting and so many geese (or swans?!) Beautiful! would try again in summer for sure! Little peaceful couple outing. Went to the gift shop after that, tasted some cheese, then wine tasting (fruits wine!). Charming! Took many pictures but uploading just a few; go see for yourself! :)

    Most amazing place ever! That's all there is that needs to be said... Not to mention a open farm petting zoo style. Rabbits, Chicks, Goats, Cows, Chickens, Sheep, Ducks, and then on top of that there is super tasty fruit wines to scrumptious cheeses and so many super tasty treats and and souvenirs and jams and bbq sauces and the list just goes and on! YOU MUST COME TO THIS PLACE!

    CHEESE!!! They have a delicious selection of cheese made on premise. Can't find fresher, tastier cheese than this. The only issue I have is trying to limit the amount I buy.

Here, along Island Highway, you'll find primarily chain hotels, resorts, and motels offering clean and comfortable lodgings within walking distance of the town's amenities. If you want to enjoy the region's pristine nature, you can find more interesting accommodations just east down the highway, around the border of Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. Beach resorts with swimming pools, quaint holiday cottages, and secluded forest retreats provide easy access to both the beach and the national park.
