What you'll do

You will be introduced to the animals so that they have time to meet you and get used to you (as well as you getting used to them) before having the opportunity to be able to hand-feed them and take photographs and selfies along the way!

Vickie & Ed

My husband Ed and I moved from a very large city (London, England) to a very small rural town in Australia (Mansfield) to start a family and experience a lifestyle change. Having enjoyed working on a City Farm in Holland, Ed wanted to find suitable land and set up accommodation with an interactive experience element for those who would like to interact with animals. In the past we have bred pigs, milked our jersey cow and have hand-reared many Boar goats (kids). By far our favourite sort of animals are the miniature Pygmy goats and Alpacas which we enjoy introducing to our guests and giving them the opportunity to get up close & personal by feeding them and spending time watching them from the verandah on warm days or from inside the cottage on colder days. Any time of year is a great time for animal watching and spotting!

What's included

Equipment
Animal feed, either pellets or hay. Brush to brush the goats.

Where you'll be

You can choose to be on the other side of the post & rail fence and enter the paddock where the animals are. Otherwise it is fine to stay behind the fence and interact.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 10 guests of all ages can attend.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Everyone is different and not everyone is confident around animals or used to interacting with animals. We will be guided by you as to how much interaction you feel comfortable with.
