Happy Pig Farm invites you to a very special Good Life farm experience with your family or a group of up to 6 friends. Your stay includes a farm tour to meet our animals (pigs, sheep, cattle, horses, chickens, ducks) and to see how we farm the old fashioned way without a tractor and grow our market garden crops without the use of artificial fertilizers or pesticides. Enjoy our Paddock to Plate Good Food prepared from our own farm grown produce or sourced locally. Enjoy Good Company in our comfortable Happy Pig Farm Stay accommodation which has 2 bedrooms each with en-suite bathrooms, sleeping accommodation for 6 (beds: double, queen, king single, single, cot, fold out lounge double), spacious family room with wood fire (we supply the wood),wifi, good mobile reception, TV, kitchenette equipped for self catering, reverse cycle air conditioner, kids cupboard with books and entertainment things for children. We cater for families by providing cots, high chairs, change and bathing equipment, stroller. Relax and make the most of the BBQ in your private courtyard or dine alfresco on the terraces overlooking our paddocks and animals.
We are living the dream of self sufficiency and love sharing our Good Life adventure with our guests and many Wwoofers (Willing Workers on Organic Farms). These are young, and not so young, people who come to our farm from all over the world to experience first hand our way of life. Our house is always full of fun, laughter and many cultures. At an age when most people have retired we are building our new farm tourism business. We have converted half of our 100 year old farmhouse into very comfortable self contained private accommodation for our Farm Stay guests. It gives us great pleasure to create special memories for people who come to stay here and where possible involve you in some of our farm activities. What we do need you to know is that as a working farm we do have dams, stock water troughs, big and small animals, electric and barbed wire fences, farm machinery and equipment and the products for running and servicing these and vehicles moving on farm. This is the Australian bush and we do get snakes and in some seasons the crops or natural trees etc. produce pollen. Therefore we ask you to follow all signs and to supervise children at all times while on the farm.
Stanthorpe on the Granite Belt is the only place in Queensland that experiences four actual seasons. Each season brings its own pleasures. Spring is a riot of flowers and new crops growing in our market gardens. Summer is harvest time and Stanthorpe becomes a cosmopolitan country town as the harvest season draws many workers from all over the world. Autumn is rich with the colors of that season and the beginning of what most people look forward to, mellowing in front of the fire with a glass of local wine. Our very cold winter is unique in Queensland and it can snow. It is a time to embrace the cold then retreat to the cozy comfort of our Farm Stay fire. Being only three kilometers from Stanthorpe CBD you can access local cafes, pubs and RSL, gymnasium, and swimming pool, go fishing in Quart Pot Creek or picnic on the banks of that picturesque waterway where there are BBQs and play areas for children. The Granite Belt is famous for wineries and Girraween National park where you can experience many fun things to do within thirty kilometers of our farm. We love living in Stanthorpe. You will too no matter what season. Experience the Good Life with us on Happy Pig Farm.
