Something to think about............

Some people feel the entry fee is a little high.

Please remember, we are in drought!

We are a small farming business

We receive NO government or fundraising funding

because we do not sell our animals for meat.

Your entry fee helps to cover the animals hay and pellets, raising over,

400 orphan baby’s each year, staff wages and other farm expenses!

We are the ONLY place in Sydney you can do the tour we provide,

Where everything is hands on for everyone to feed, pat and

cuddle all our lovely animals.

If we close because we can’t afford to stay open

Where will you get to cuddle animals then?
