Where are we going today?

Old McDonald might have had a farm, but it probably wasn't as fun as Collingwood Children's Farm!

Collingwood Children's Farm has a whole range of fun family activities to enjoy, AND of course those fun farm animals to say hello to!

Have you ever milked a cow? Well, now you can have a go! Heather, their very lovely Ayrshire cow and is milked twice a day - 10am and 4pm. She's very gentle so don't be shy! The milk then goes onto feed the calves or any orphans lambs of kids that might be on the farm.

The farm has a resident donkey named Mickie (hey he's so fine!) who's friends with Joe the pony, so why not come in and join their group of friends! Mickie loves to have his neck scratched, and loves to go for a walk around the farm and say hi to everyone!

If you love horses, you will LOVE the 7 horses that are all very quiet and super friendly. They even offer pony rides during the week!

Oink Oink...the Berkshire pigs are in town!  Typoon, Greta and their boar currently call the farm home, and it's a great way for kids to learn about this wonderful species, and why they are now rare!

With goats, geese, sheep and ducks, there are plenty of animal experiences to be had!

Collingwood Children's Farm also has a market where you can pick up some pretty amazing vegetables, or you can visit one of the city's best cafes - the Farm Cafe! It's a great spot for parents to relax as the kids run around and cuddle all the animals! 

With special events and school holiday attractions, as well as seasonally themed activities, there will always be something fun to do at Collingwood Children's Farm!

    We go for the farmers market . . . the farm is a delightful and unique experience, the café and food also. But the downer is the parking and what has been done to St Heliers St taking away many parking spots. Yes, its a difficult area to park and paying for parking sucks, that's why 3 of us have decided to give the farm and also the convent markets a miss because of this. Pity.
