Where are we going today?

Tougas Family had a farm...eee yai eee yai yo!  And on Tougas Family Farm they had a barnyard - with an eee yai eee yai yo!

Simple farmyard pleasures will greet the whole family when you visit this sweet natured farm, complete with a barnyard, farm kitchen and playground.

Always popular with the kids, the barnyard is full of sweet little (and some not so little!) animals that the kids can enjoy.  There are fun pygmy goats that climb up their rock mountain and enjoy their little goat bridge.  

There are noisy pot bellied pigs tha roll around in the mud, and the very fast Indian Runner ducks!  New arrivals are always coming into the barnyard, so have a look and see if you can spot any babies!

The farms playground is an authentic farm playground designed for elementary school aged kids. Jump aboard the antique tractor and get your picture taken on it! Can you imagine what it would really be like to ride that?  There are swings to get those butterflies in your tummy on, and slippery slides to speed down!

And what would a farm be without fruit picking  From June to October there are a host of different fruits and come and go in season - from delicious strawberries to juicy apples, just in time for those festive pumpkins! There's something very fun and organic about getting right in there and tasting fruit you can see exactly where it's come from! 

If you have worked up an appetite you can go and indulge in the delicious farm store and kitchen, where perhaps a home made pie will take your fancy?  YUM!

    My family went to pick blue berries, paid $20.00 in advance, my husband accidentally lost receipt, a small paper, during the picking, we searched and could not find it. We went to talk to the employee at the front desk, hope they could understand us, and let us have the blue berries we picked which cost about $20.00, but the lady who was the one received the $20.00 payment, was so rude, just told us that we had to show her the receipt, or we should pay extra $20.00.
