We took our 4children there(age2-5) They enjoy watching the sheeps and the dog on the field. It worked out for us because it was a quick tour.

We attended the sheepdog demonstration and were amazed at the skill of the border collie and it’s trainer Evan. I think the view alone is worth the price of admission.
