White Ridge Farm

Proudly sponsored by:
Lawnton Book Stop

Come along to White Ridge Farm where you can touch and pat some beautiful farm animals and meet some exotic llamas and alpacas too. Hand feed all of our friendly miniature goats, cuddle an Angora goat and see just how many different breeds of sheep there are. Get up close and personal in the interactive area where you can pat and brush the dorper lambs, damara sheep, goats, chickens and ducks.

Have your photo taken with a Heritage sheep, the beautiful Southdown sheep or more commonly known Teddy Bear sheep. Have a rest while you listen to one of the educational talks about the differences between llamas and alpacas. The kids can touch and feel some lovely soft alpaca and llama wool and make a craft activity to take home. And of course a visit to the farm wouldn’t be complete without having a go at milking a cow!

See you all soon at White Ridge Farm at the Pine Rivers Show.
