Its main attraction is the Animal Farm Corner – a sort of minizoo where kids can interact with and feed the resident goats, bullfrogs, tortoises, rabbits, birds, hamsters and more. You can buy vegetables, fish food and bird feed from the keepers.
You can also book a farm tour led by Uncle William, a farming veteran. He leads basic one-to-two-hour tours around Farmart Centre, as well as full-day tours to local goat, vegetable, crocodile and frog farms. Farmart Centre also has a retail space where you can buy organic eggs and vegetables, or live seafood and exotic meats, like quail and crocodile meat.

Tour bookings must be done two weeks in advance, with a minimum of 30 participants needed for them to take place. ADMISSION Free admission to Farmart Centre and the Animal Farm Corner. Uncle William’s farm tours are from $6 to $60, according to three itineraries: Basic Farmart Tour, Farmtrail A (goat, vegetable and fish farms) and Farmtrail B (crocodile, vegetable and fish/frog farm).
