Rosie!

Rosie is a Australian Lowline calf and she joined our farm in late April 2022. We are planning on getting her in calf when she is old enough so we will have 2 cows at Fig Tree Farm! In the mean time she has made friends with all the other animals at the farm for company. Australian Lowine heifers grow to around 1 metre high to the shoulder, making them much smaller than regular sized cows. They mature to about 60% the size of an Angus cow, making her a great size to interact with at our hobby farm. 

Friendly Sheep

Hand Reared lambs!

We have two Dorper lambs called Barley and Suzie. They joined the family in June, 2021 and were bottle fed until about November 2021 so are very friendly! Guests are welcome to play with the lambs and brush them. The animals on our hobby farm are never sold on when they grow up and become big animals. They are all very friendly due to so much interaction and they are a valued part of our farm, even when they are adults. 

Friendly Goats

Family friendly Goats, Chickens, Guinea Pigs, Lambs and Ducks!

At Fig Tree Farm Stay Near Brisbane we have four friendly goats called Sam, Jack, Wally and Casper (two are hornless pygmy goats), two friendly hand reared lambs called Barley and Suzie, seventeen free range chickens and two Indian Runner ducks. We also have four guinea pigs called Elsa, Trixie, Coco and Levi for guests to interact with. ‘Guinea Pig Encounters’ are introduced by the host for the safety of the guinea pigs and the enjoyment of the guests!

Brushing goats

Brush and hand feed the Goats!

The goats enjoy being brushed daily and brushes are supplied for guests! Children are even able to brush the goats as they are so friendly and love the attention. Of course children must always be supervised by an adult.

 

Unfortunately, we are unable to allow guests to bring their own dogs as we have little animals to protect at Fig Tree Farm.

Guinea Pigs

Hand Feed a Guinea Pig!

We have 6 resident guinea pigs called Trixie, Elsa, Coco, Poppy, Bean and Levi.  We provide supervised guinea pig encounters where children (or adults!) can pat and hand feed the guinea pigs with food we supply. The guinea pigs are bought to the cottage in a secure basket which ensures they stay safe while you have an awesome hands on experience.

Hand feed chickens

Hand feed the chickens and collect fresh farm eggs for your breakfast!

The Fig Tree Farm ‘Chick Inn’ has seveteen happy free range chickens. They all have names and have a great area to roam free and produce healthy farm fresh eggs. Guests can hand feed the chickens or use the basket and collect the eggs to cook for yourself in the morning! There is a seat in the Chick Inn so you can sit and relax while watching the happy chickens scratching around in their outdoor area. We sometimes even hatch our own eggs and have chicks at the farm!

Read one of our many reviews.

I think the words ‘super host’ are used too liberally but I can honestly say from staying in air B and Bs in 5 continents around the world, Mike and Lydia, are by far the best hosts I’ve experienced. Fig Tree Farm Cottage is a beautifully designed, high specification, thoroughly clean, 3 bedroom house with a fantastic outlook. Fresh breakfast is provided daily by Lydia. The German rye bread was enjoyed by both our young children. The daily cuddles with the guinea pigs and brushing of the goats was a real highlight, as was the creek at the end of the acreage. We have already booked in for another week.
