  • Thank you Tom for your warm welcome and your many responses on your job. We loved doing sucking bottle-fed the lambs to a week and admire the work of the shepherd dog. Good continuation! Theo, Alain, Dominique

  • Went here with family today and we had a great time. Tom the owner is very friendly and kind, gives an amazing demonstration of how to work a sheep dog to hurdle the sheep around the field. There's also an opportunity to feed the little lamb and hold them, kids loved this to bits!
  • Amazing place! We took a tour with the owner Tom, a great, friendly guy, including a little hike around the premises, got a nice demonstration of the sheepdog's skills and bottlefed the lambs. Props to Tom, Roy and Jimi! Definitely recommended by the Pinguins!
  • If you have kids that would like to bottle feed lambs, or if you'd like to try it yourself then it's worth a visit to here. The owner is very nice and accommodating - great experience over all!
  • Farmer could have talked more and we wished that we could have cut turf like other reviews mention
  • Great place
