A scenic place with its meadows, windmill, farm houses and barns against a backdrop of a forested hill, Swiss sheep farm is a great place for photo taking. Milk churns, large bales of hay, farm carts, old water pump, Halloween pumpkins and several 1950’s and 1960’s American trucks add to the farm’s picturesque feel.
Children will enjoy feeding and petting the farm animals or riding a pony. The well maintained and clean farm is located just North of Hua Hin.
Sheep and other farm animals
The Swiss sheep farm offers adults and children a chance to get up close to various animals and to feed them. Around the farm are sheep, goats, horses, ponies, chickens, donkeys, bunnies, fishes and swans in a pond and alpacas.
The alpacas, a small camelid originating from South America, live in an air conditioned building. Access is 100 Baht for an adult, 50 per child. You can also see alpacas at the nearby Camel Republic.
Activities at the farm
Near the entrance is a pen with several dozen sheep and little lambs that will run towards you and try to climb the fence when you get near them with food. Use the coupon attached to the entrance ticket to get some grass and feed it to the sheep. The small lambs can be fed some milk from a bottle.
At 10.30 am, 1 pm and 2.30 pm staff demonstrate goat milking. After the demonstration visitors can try their hand with the dairy goats.
Small children will enjoy petting the bunnies and feeding them carrots. Other activities include riding around the farm in a horse drawn carriage (50 Baht per person), ride a mechanical rodeo bull, archery (100 Baht) and horse riding (50 Baht).
3D Art fun photo taking
The interior walls of the small two storey 3D building are decorated with multi dimensional paintings. Visitors can stand in the paintings and become part of the scene. Letting your imagination go posing in the art works will get you lots of laughs and many fun photos.
Food, drinks and souvenirs
Drinks, snacks and Thai sweets are available at a stand in the farm. A small outdoor restaurant offers food as Tom Yum Gung, sour pork and chicken nuggets. The souvenir shop at the exit sells mainly stuffed toys.
