Wonderful sheep dog demonstration with an informative commentary. Remarkable to watch the dog and hear about the life and training. Then on to bottle feeding the orphan lambs. 10 euros very well spent.

Tom is the ideal stepson, I guess. He is very nice both with people and his dogs and sheep; it’s a shame the latter will notably end up in lamb samosas... Beautiful and cruel.

My daughters loved the sheep dog demonstration! It was so cool watching the dog work! The Farm is in a beautiful location overlooking a lake. Even with the rain we had a great time. Definitely take the time to visit Tom at his farm!
