Basils Farm Events
Currently, due to Covid-19 social distancing restrictions, Basils Farm is not holding events for the public and therefore will not be running our guided Animal Feeding for Children. As an alternative, during opening hours Basils Farm will be providing Animal Feeding activity packs as an add on for those dining in the Cafe or in the outdoor Cellar Door area. This is self-guided llama and sheep feeding and a scavenger hunt, suitable for children.
Llama & Sheep Feeding
When you book yourself and the kids in for lunch in the cafe or visit as a walk-in for lunch in the Cellar Door area, for an additional $10, the kids can meet and feed our resident llamas and baby doll sheep, and will also receive a kids activity pack (various packs available for all ages).
