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.

You experience the two key elements of sheep farming; Watching the border collies herding the flock, and watching the art of shearing - all on a working sheep farm. Great 1/2 day.
