  • Fantastic place for both kids and adults. Very interesting demonstrations about sheep dogs, the different sheep breeds, shearing a sheep. And possibility to cuddle farm animals, lambs, chicks, guinea pigs. Kids can take pony rides, play on the outdoor playground. And there's coffee and cake, with seating inside and out. And a gift shop. Lovely!
  • The sheep farm has a playground and different animals walking around the barn. The sheep are, when not outside, in small squares with their children. What hit me off is the sight and smell of moldy hay that was fed to the animals (after some research it's not deadly, but still unhealthy). They also give small chicks to hold, and lambs to cuddle. I sat down in the cuddle pen and waited for a goat to volunteer to get snuggled, but a coworker just took one and put it on my lap. It didn't want that and immediately jumped down. They also chase them and don't care when they hit their head on the fences. How they treat their animals is not okay. I don't recommend supporting those kind of people. The 5€ is better spent on charity or a farm that cares about their animals, not the money.
