Daily Animal Feeding
Every day at 9:00am we feed our animals. Which types of animals we have to feed and what babies we are caring for at the time, depends on the season. Some of the different types of animals are calves, lambs, rabbits, guinea pigs, goats, emus, chooks, turkeys and pigs. Have a go at hand milking a cow (in season) and then see how easy and quick it is using a milking machine. Animal feeding takes around an hour to complete and takes place every day of the year, regardless of weather (except for Christmas Day). This is a free activity for guests staying in our accommodation.
If you are visiting the area but not staying with us you can still join in the animal feeding at 9am and there is a small fee of $5 per person. It is best to ring (97611733) the night before to let us know you are coming.
Some of the day to day activities on the farm are dependent on the weather in Bridgetown Western Australia. During the winter months, when there are no fire bans we are able to take guests to a campfire where we make damper over the hot coals.
