We were never given our change. The farm park was pretty Kool however didn’t like the fact the chickens followed u every where and would bite the kids if the chickens has been in a limited area would have been a great park however with the kids being consistently followed by the chickens and bitten it made it a crap experience for them

Have been a couple of times for myself but this time we went as a business for the kids Christmas party, it was such a great time they went above and beyond and were very accommodating and looked after us so well. Thank you very much will be back again and definitely recommending it to others

I need a miniature horse!
Aug 2019
We had our August itinerary completely planned out, but my husband suggested that we (2 grown adults without children) make a stop at Famlan on the way back to Christchurch and I am so glad he did! It was the middle of winter and it had rained the few days before we visited, so we were the only ones at the farm on this day. Thankfully, they had boots for us to borrow. The owner (I don't think we caught his name but I named him Farmer Dan!) was nice enough to show us around the farm, take us into the goat pen, and introduce us to all the animals! I felt a little like Snow White because there were chickens and ducks following us everywhere! Farmer Dan even said that on a usual dry day, some of the horses could be found roaming free also. We went to a total of 3 farms in New Zealand and I have to say this one was very reasonably priced compared to the others, plus it was probably the best for animals! I wish they would add a gift shop!!

Highlight of Our Trip
Jun 2019 • Couples
We decided to make a short stop over at Timaru on the way to Christchurch and paid this lovely farm a visit. My husband and I had so much fun here interacting with the sheep, cows, chicken, alpacas, goats and rabbits. The owner was very welcoming and he took the time to give us a short tour as well as a very insightful commentary about every single one of his farm animals. He even lent my husband gum boots to wear into the goat pen! If you're ever in Timaru, this is a place you HAVE to visit!!

We had so much fun here feeding and interacting with the animals! Could have spent hours here! Richard the owner was really friendly and informative about the animals and clearly had great relationships with them.

It was so interesting and funny being so hands on with the animals and if we are ever back in Timaru we’d 100% go back.

If you’re nearby you have to visit!

My boyfriend and I (25 and 26) loved visiting here so much. The animals were all so friendly and it was amazing being able to get so close to them. I fell in love with the miniature horse 😍. The owner was lovely and very informative. I visited today and want to go back again already!

The Alpaca spat on me...

But I loved every minute of it.
Beautiful little spot, the owners are super nice and very welcoming.
Lots of animals and "most" are well behaved.
Had a great morning there, lots to see and do.

Go There!

Loved it!
Apr 2019 • Family
We visited today as my children wanted to do something special. We spent about an hour and half at the farm... and the children wanted to stay longer. It was really clean and had a wholesome feel about the place. The animals are very happy and obviously really really well looked after. The host was happy to chat and was very informative. We have gone to a few of these types of places... but this is the best! The children want to go back and take Dad next time.
