One for the kids. The truly hands-on, family-run 135-hectare working farm allows visitors to feed the ducks and lambs, and tour the exotic bird aviaries. Amiable Farmer Bill keeps things interesting and demonstrations of threshing, sheepdog work and shoeing a horse are absorbing. Follow the signs on the N51.

Sunday at 3pm is a very special time when the ‘sheep derby’ is run. Finding jockeys small enough wasn’t easy, so teddy bears are tied to the animals’ backs. Visiting children are made owners of individual sheep for the race.
