Welcome to Marlie Stud – where we are passionate about traditional farming. Come and step back in time with us, visit our working draught horse farm and see our way of life. Take one of our interactive tours which take you around the farm in a horse drawn wagon. You can see our cropping paddocks, how we run our farm and all the horse drawn implements we use. Pat and brush the horses, have a go at milking a cow and collect some eggs from the chicken coop. Our tours are fun for young and old. Our horses can not wait to meet you.
