Farm Day Visits
Good News!!!! The Donkey Dairy has decided to open up our farm gates to visitors!! If you are looking for an authentic farm experience, then come on over!! We are a working farm and not a venue per se, so if you are down-to-earth and looking for a bit of fresh farm air and interaction with some amazing animals, then you have come to the right place.
Not only are we South Africa’s only Donkey Dairy, our farm is also home to some of the rarest farm animals in South Africa including dwarf goats, miniature pigs, dwarf rabbits, miniature cattle, miniature horses, silky chickens, Suri alpacas and not to forget the stars of our farm, miniature spotted donkeys.
Upon arriving, you will have full access to our family-friendly hikes on our section of the Magaliesburg mountain.
We currently have two hiking trails: “Long Ears Lookout”, which gives a spectacular view of the valley, and “Brayers Eye” trail, which takes you to our natural spring in the mountain. Here you can take some time out to relax in the forest by the spring.
So please remember to pack your hats, sunscreen, hiking shoes, water bottles and cameras as you will spot our mountain donkeys on your way.
Bottle feeding of our Goat Kids:
We offer bottle feeding with our baby dwarf goats at 9:30am and 12:30pm at an additional cost of R80 per family on a first-come first-served basis. We only have limited bottles as we cannot overfeed our babies. Should you miss out on the bottle feeding, there will still be plenty of time to interact with the goaties in our play area.
For the more daring kids, donkey rides will also be available at R40 per child, these are with our handsome Donkey, Blue! Blue is on duty for rides between 11am and 12pm and again from 1pm to 2pm. Weight limit for kids is 30kgs.
For the kids who enjoy giving our Donks a makeover, we offer grooming kits at selected times throughout the day where they can brush, plat and cuddle our Long Ears to their hearts content.
We offer animal snack packs for some extra yummy bonding time. Our snack packs offer a well-balanced pellet which is suitable for all of our animals, they are available at reception for R20 per pack.
The Farm Deli:
Our recent collaboration with Meat and Eat Deli, brings you a delicious menu which is sure to fill your tummy while you enjoy your day on our farm. You can enjoy their delicious food before your mountain hike, or at our picnic area. (No personal picnic baskets are allowed on the premises.)
Platters also available on request for larger groups or functions.
The Farm Shop:
Be sure to make a turn at our small farm shop for homemade products that we manufacture on the farm, such as rusks, preserves, various rustic items and our famous donkey milk soap and creams. There is a card facility available for your convenience.
