What is there to do?

We LOVE a sweet farm experience here at Family Days Out, and at Winterpast Farm you get just that!

Winterpast Farm is 10 acres of outdoor fun with the family. The farm has quite a history! It was once a tobacco farm, then a Christmas tree farm, THEN a horse farm, and now luckily for you it's a farm filled with those wonderful barnyard animals that you can organize a private tour on!

You will be welcomed into this animal sanctuary by Farmer Mary, who will give you the food you need to then go and feed their wonderful animals. From llamas, emu's, goats, sheep, a pony, pigs and even Guinea pigs.

It's a wonderful place to spend a few hours in nature. After you feed the lovely animals, you can find eggs, head out and spot nests, look for those pesky woodpeckers, and get active on a refreshing hike. 

You might even find some turtles and lizards, as well as hold the cute baby chicks and bunnies!

Don't let winter put you off - there is winter story time to enjoy, which includes swings and a climbing wall. All on a farm! Amazing! It really is family fun waiting for you! 

Kids - we haven't finished listing the FUN things you can do yet! How about stomping in the mud (you know you want to!), make all the noise you want, pile up rocks, roll down hills in a super fun tube, or even look for that HUGE emu egg! 

Make sure you call ahead and let them know when you will be arriving. Farmer Mary loves to meet her guests at the gate, so no drop ins. But that doesn’t mean you’re not VERY welcome!

Keep an eye out - you might even spot Old McDonald on his farm…eee aye eee aye oh!

They love hosting pre schools, homeschool groups and public school groups. There is plenty of parking, and they will be happy to have you! The activities can be based on kids of all ages. Don't forget to book in advance!

Can I get one of those?


There are a few things that kids can take home! They might love the feathers from peacocks, emu, and other fowl, and occasionally hand-built pottery by Farmer Mary herself!

Need a little extra help?


There have been wheelchairs and walkers walk the entire forest trail, so it is possible. The driveway is gravel, and there are some slight hills and valleys.
