We thought we would take the opportunity to show how great the Collingwood Children's Farm is for little ones! Below are some pics from the archives that Kate took when her and her little ones visited the farm last. For her review of Family Day at the Farm, head to her review here.

Little ones and their carers will love visiting the Collingwood Children's Farm, we loved visiting when we lived in Melbourne and cannot wait to visit again. At the farm, kids can enjoy wondering around the paddocks checking out the farm animals (horses, cows, goats, chickens, pigs, guinea pigs, geese and more!), giving cuddles to guinea pigs, touching other farm animals or milking a cow.

You can combine a visit to the Farm on Saturdays which is when Farmers' market is on where delicious food from local producers as well as fruit & vegetables and meat are sold on the day however there are no cuddles with animals in the morning. Extra activities are often organised on weekends and school holidays.

Kids will love patting a horse, milking a cow and wondering through this beautiful farm. Great for a day out with friends and family. The Farm Café as well as the Abbotsford Convent Café next door also offer great coffee and food.
