We do not take bookings for The Farmyard, simply arrive on the day and purchase your tickets from the bar. If you have a large booking of 80+ people you may book the entire farmyard for your party.
Week Day Opening
We are open every Saturday and Sunday, during school holidays we will often open on Friday mornings also. Keep an eye on our social media for additional opening times!
All kids under the age of 8yrs must be accompanied by an adult while in The Farmyard. Adults are required to purchase a ticket if entering also.
Due to health and safety regulations enclosed footwear must be worn at all times when in The Farmyard.
Do you Bottle Feeding
At this time all our animals are weaned, however check out our feeding times for the animals you can help hand feed.
You are welcome to take photos of the animals and your own family/group. By law you are not permitted to include any other child in the photo unless their guardian has pre-approved so please keep this in mind.
Can we Bring Birthday Cake?
Absolutely!!! We love a good birthday party and what is a birthday without cake!? We are happy to store it in our cool room, however it is a busy environment so we can't guarantee it's safety (although we are yet to lose one!), please also remember to bring your own plates, spoons/forks, knives and candles.
Dogs on a leash are permitted on the brewery grounds. However, as our animals see dogs as a threat, and we like to keep them calm around children, please do not bring your dog within 2 metres of The Farmyard fencing or flagged off area.
Food and Drinks
Food and drinks are not permitted within The Farmyard due to health and safety regulations.
If it is light showers we will most likely open. If it is predicted to be constant heavy rain or we have had prolonged wet weather then we may not open The Farmyard. Our Facebook Page will provide any updates by 8am on the opening day. If there is no update then we will open as normal.
We do not do pony rides at this point, we do however have our resident miniature ponies here to pat.
Farmyard Animal Viewing
Even when The Farmyard is closed you can see all our animals grazing in their grazing paddocks at the back of the brewery. You can also view the pigs, chickens and ducks from a distance. Please do not feed any of our animals or wildlife and be conscious of the electric fencing.
The cows onsite are generally in the back paddocks. At this time we do not have rescue dairy bull calves.
Currently we have pigs, ducks, sheep, goats, miniature horses, rabbits, chickens, guinea pigs.
At this stage our license to have rabbits does not allow them to be patted. You can view them in their enclosure.
