They are often asked if the farm tours are suitable for children. Their response is an emphatic YES! In fact the Freckle Farm Tour has been carefully designed with children in mind, because they strongly believe that all kids need to see where real food comes from. They have a hay trailer ride for the little ones and all of their walking tracks are pram friendly. This is one of the few opportunities most children will get to see and touch real farm animals.
