Ours is a small (120 acre) farm not far from Ballarat . We milk dairy goats, breed rare sorts of poultry, have pigs, donkeys, sheep and Dexter cattle. If people would like to bring dogs, then that will need to be discussed first as to whther the breed of dog is suitable for our farm.

Spur of the moment weekend just myself and the kids in our caravan. Kate was most welcoming, lovely little property not far from Ballarat. Great facilities. The kids had an absolute ball being given so much freedom to explore all the animals. Feeding and cuddling the orphan lambs made their weekend.

The property is beautiful and interacting with the animals was very enjoyable. The facilities were adequate. As for the hosts - A little friendliness and tolerance don't cost much. If you don't like having people around, then don't invite them.

We had a great stay here camping for two nights in the 'churchyard'. Close to plenty of good walks, all the facilities you could hope for and Kate was very welcoming. We also brought the dog and he absolutely loved it. Thanks of having us.

Cremona is a great spot for camping - the site is clear with plenty of space and an excellent fire pit! The hosts are lovely and the animals are wonderful - views from the top of the mountain are beautiful and an easy/short walk. I would recommend for families and groups!
