THE Cedar Galleries put on quite a morning when they held their first A Day on the Farm for the year.

Co-owner Angela Scheers said the day had been brilliant.

"We've had a great response," she said.

Children spent the day playing on the jumping castle, feeding alpacas, nursing baby ducklings and chicks, and colouring in.

Tahlia and Jaydah Jackson said patting the ducklings and jumping on the jumping castle was their favourite part of the day.

Lilli Gosley and Lucas Burston said they had enjoyed holding the ducklings and chickens, and were going to feed the alpacas.

The fun wasn't just for the kids - parents could relax at the cafe or art gallery while their children played safely.

"It's a great day out for the kids and the parents," Ms Scheers said.

A Day in the Farm will continue every Friday during January from 9am to 1pm at the Cedar Galleries, Bruce Hwy, Benaraby.
