Welcome to the little farm with a big heart, a MUST for everyone!

Entrance Fee: R50 p.p

, a children’s animal touch farm where all ages can enjoy interacting with our amazing animals.  Best part is that 80% of our animals are rescues, from the cruel world out there, now living life to the fullest and love all the attention & love they receive from visitors.  We have a little café and several party venues, situated in the picturesque valley of Assagay in KZN.  We created a paradise for children where they can run free in an outdoor environment and delight in God’s creatures, great and small.  Come and join us for a farm filled experience that’s nearby!

Our motto... more smiling, less worrying!

Where kids can be kids and adults can rediscover their inner child.  Enjoy feeding the farm animals, cuddle a bunny (gently), rub the cow, count the sheep, marvel at the peacocks, ride a pony or take a tractor ride down to the bottom of the farm, for the daring, take a zip-line ride (Foofy slide) down the hill and play in our fully equipped playground with swings, slides, a ginormous jumping pillow and so much more!  Enjoy good coffee, cakes, and light café style meals at our little farm cafe, overlooking the farms on the opposite side of the valley, a view worth seeing!  Why not get a takeaway and have a picnic down the bottom, sitting on our lush green grass, shaded by lovely big trees.  We can’t wait to see you!

IMPORTANT

There is a little bench for the children to sit on while waiting for their pony ride and a mounting block for them to stand on when it is their turn.  Please make use of these.  Please be careful not to allow anyone to stand behind any of the horses as they can, although tame, unexpectedly kick.  There are toilets near the Pony Ride area and more at the top behind the Farm Café.
