What is Be a Farmer for a Day?

On the farm we always offer a hands on experience for children, parents and seniors. Each day we open on the farm we have a set of activities for everyone to enjoy, But we wanted to find a way to give families and even more interactive day on the farm with a more casual approach.

Hence the creation of our Be a farmer for a day or BFFD event.

The day gives everyone (kids and adults alike) the opportunity to get their hands dirty on the farm and have a day out you won't forget.  

Remember this is the ONLY place in Sydney that offers this experience.
