The Collingwood Children’s Farm offers an educational, interactive farm experience for all age groups and school levels.
A farm tour begins at 10 am and lasts for approximately two to two and a half hours. Afternoon tours can be arranged by appointment. With trained staff leading the tour, children can milk the cow, bottle feed the lambs (seasonal), learn how to correctly approach and handle farm animals and experience ’life on the farm.’ Sustainability, recycling and landcare principles can also be part of your farm experience.
