The Farm

The Farmyard in Balnarring (Mornington Peninsula) offers “hands on” experiences with a large variety of friendly farm animals in a relaxed rustic farm setting.

Walk through paddocks with:

• Sheep, Goats, Calves, Poultry, Pigs, Emus, Alpacas

• Rabbit and guinea pig patting areas

Other animals that can be patted over the fence are ponies, donkeys, a mule, dingoes and big pigs.

Feed is available for the animals and sometimes there is a baby animal requiring a bottle…

Birthday Parties

Schools and Kinder

We offer excursions with wonderful educational outcomes. We are sorry but we no longer provide a mobile service

Little Piggies Playgroup
