For children there is a sandbox and a swing in a tree. When the animals are cared for children are allowed to come along. There is a labyrinth in the garden. You can get a tour around the farm, if desired with a theme. You can also follow herb courses in which you learn how to use first aid herbs and how to prepare herbal oil and vinegar.
