  • Beautiful for kids and families alike. Love the courtyard for photos.
  • I was disappointed with the Insider's Tour. I had been to other farm where is more interactive and has lot more to see. The other reviews posted are little overrated. My tour guide never showed up; got the explanation he just decided not to show up; poor management!? Here, $20 is pricey for the lecture walk. Not desirable for kids & older folks. If you are not an agricultural person, skip the $ & just walk on your own.
  • Very nice scenery, not very far from the city. Not a great fit for toddlers, as most activities are mostly tour guide-like talking and not much of an activity. Coffee shop serves relatively healthy and mostly delicious food.
  • This is a great place to visit with kids and family. Lots of interactive exhibits on everything from making spring rolls to collecting spinach. The farm is beautiful and so is the central building complex. They do charge an admission on weekends in season, and at $22/person it pretty steep.
  • We enjoyed the open air and exploring the grounds. We were disappointed that the tour was completely full when we got there and were not able to purchase tickets. Instead we were offered to do a self guided tour using the official app, however we were not able to find it on the App/Play stores. The cafe had a tasty selection of sweet and savoury pastries. All in all we had a good experience but a little underwhelming.
