The hosts or the Timber Trail Farmstay are Carol and Glenn Thomas who are committed to doing everything for your comfort and the best possible stay. Carol and Glenn also run their 1200 ha dry stock sheep and beef farm as part of your farmstay experience. (For anybody who does not know “dry stock” means that they are not dairy farmers but producers of quality stock for meat and wool.)
Guests are welcome to enjoy viewing any activities which are happening during their visit but it depends on what’s happening on the day – so it is a bit of a lucky dip really. There could be shearing, lambing and calving, feeding out or maybe simple day to day activities. There are usually pigs/piglets to feed. Glenn would be happy to do a dog run on a few sheep if people wanted to see how the dogs work. and Roxy the horse is there for patting and feeding.
Many people enjoy a walk around the farm. There are numerous walks possible from a 2km stroll up to the airstrip (where there is cell phone coverage) to view the mountains and extensive farm land on a clear day. For those looking for more of a challenge there is a 5km walk through the middle of the farm up to the trig. Take a pack with a few treats to enjoy when you reach the top.
Then of course Timber Trail Farmstay is an ideal base to enjoy cycling the Timber Trail. Please click on the button below to see more information.
