Went on the tractor farm tour with lunch and it was so fun! The ostrich fillet was delicious as well (don't miss their secret sauce!), more than enough for both of us.More

Good Day , our definition of a child is : 4 years to 14 years of age. 3 years (toddlers) and younger are free of charge but we charge children's rate for the guided tour if the person is 4 to 14 years old.
