Why Farm Adventures:
The need for children to be children is something that has been important to Kim and me for a long time. With this in mind, when we laid out our garden, we planned for lots of open space for our children to play. Over the years we’ve noticed that if you add more children magic happens!! They play and play and play until they’re sweaty, exhausted and hungry!
A child’s instinct is to play, run, climb, hop, skip, dig, dance, catch and throw. To roll down hills and jump waves, to build forts, make a noise, make a mess, to explore! Play is spontaneous, creative and fun! Instead of playing on an I-Pad or watching tv where can children go to do this in a safe environment?
Playing and movement is essential for a child’s development. It is one of the most important things parents can share with their children, but sadly this doesn’t happen these days as parents are either too busy and / or the children do not have the space and other children to play with …
At The Farm we have the time ... the friends …. and the space .... for your children to be children.
What are we all about:
Holiday camps provide time out for parents and play time for children in a safe, happy, farm environment.
In addition we will soon be offering fun - not just for the young but the young @ heart too;
Mountain bike routes & occasional races

Attractions in the area:
Bird watching – the nearby Ongoye Forest and Mtunzini area are well known to twitchers
Take a trip just south to the Amatikulu lagoon – fish, paddle, swim
Or just north to the Mtunzni lagoon and enjoy an afternoon cruise on a barge
Fish for bass in a nearby dam (by arrangement)
Lunch at nearby Prawn Shack
And of course what would a Farm be without the resident Nguni herd, goats and sheep, the odd piglet, gaggle of geese, horse or two, Border Collie and the early morning crow of a rooster!
We can’t wait to share our Farm experience with you and your children!
