The old farm homestead build in the 1800’s, is surrounded by a well established garden. A feature of the garden is that it has no definte end and blends in gently into the surrounding farm land. The old buildings on the farm, ie the Cheese Factory and stables have been renovated into rustic living space units.
The old cattle kraals have been turned into a Deli called Grapevine Café and is situated next to a dam, surrounded by rose gardens.
There will be several food outlets at Flitwick Ranch, catering for a number of tastes.
Refreshments will be available from the Grapevine Café and the Deli which has a variety of delicious delicacies for sale. There will be a food and tea garden at the main house with it’s beautiful garden. Picnic baskets are available to those planning to relax on the lawns or enjoy a stroll on to the farm or into the woods.
Come and enjoy the finer things of life and take a detour to the artists that are exhibiting their works in Katie’s Art-in-the-Park spot.
The Touch farm and jumping castle are sure to delight the kiddies visiting.
