Birthdays on the farm
Bring your kids and their mates to the farm to celebrate a fresh, new year of their youth with plenty of outdoor fun and good food. Depending on what your little one loves, we’ve got an assortment of parties that’ll float their boat - from harvesting, eating, getting crafty or scientific, building mini gardens or simply an old-school farm shindig. Can’t see one you like, or have your own ideas already? Let us know and we’ll be happy to try and make it happen. Then you can kick back while we take care of the rest. We hope to see you and your kids on the farm soon!
Head out on a farm safari where you will you embark on a hunt to spot wild vegetables, native bees, wiggly worms and cheeky chickens! Learn how to plant and look after a seed that you can take home and nurture.
ye olde carnival
Think three-legged races, bobbing for apples, sack races, pin the tail on the donkey and hay bails! Kids will engage in energetic activities on the lawn before sitting down to lunch.
Wear your old threads and have fun getting messy! We’ll dig our hands into some clay, soil and seeds and get busy making seed balls. Kids can then take them home and spread some floral love in their neighbourhood.
Dinosaur & Fairy Pots
Q. How do you ask a Dinosaur to lunch? A: Tea, Rex?
Kids create their own mini potted gardens and channel all their prehistoric imagination or fairy inspiration to bring to life their miniature world.
Kids embark on a bug hunt in the pollinator garden and then construct their own mini insect hotel to take home and encourage beneficial bugs in their garden.
None really stand out, or have an idea of your own you want to do? We’re happy to help you tailor your own farm party - just let us know and we will try our best to make it work.

There is only one narrow pathway near our compost bays which won't be accessible, as well as on the actual market garden itself. We recommend that all visitors using wheelchairs are accompanied by a support person as some parts of the site have difficult surfaces; gravel, and can be slippery and muddy after rain. Ramps are located at numerous access points on the site and there are wheelchair accessible toilets. Please alert our coordinator if there will be visitors in wheelchairs with your group and we can modify the experience accordingly.
