Book your farm visit – Nurture Baby Lambs
May 14 – June 5 we invite visitors to nurture baby lambs – to cuddle & bottle feed.
Things to know before your visit:
- The ferry leaves the mainland hourly on the half hour and from the Island on the hour. The ferry fee for a carload is $9 (round trip). Car pool parking on the mainland is available. The boat leaving on the half hour gets you to the farm in plenty of time for an appointment starting at quarter after the hour.
- Please use the washrooms on the ferry
- The $15 farm visit fee is per vehicle.
- Large groups (10+ people) please book 2 time periods. Sorry, but smaller groups are limited to 15 minutes during weekends. The time period shows a 1 – that means one group of up to 8 people.
