Up close with farm animals By LYNDAL JEFFERIES Shearing day: Rosie the Romney gets shorn in front of a fascinated crowd of children. Visitors can buy little bags of her wool from the cafe. Goat under a boat: Joey the goat likes sheltering under an upturned dinghy. Warm welcome: Cafe owner Becky Were chats with customers. Children can get up close and personal with farm animals at a new petting farm and cafe ´ontheway to the bottom end''. Owners of the Loop Road Cafe ´ and petting farm Becky Were and Mark Sanderson were born in the United King- dom and grew up sur- rounded by farms''. After moving to Wai- heke in 2005 they owned and operated Salvage Cafe in Oneroa before selling up and buying their block of land on the Loop Road in 2009. Ms Were says: We built the cafe and animal pens to combine a love of animals and open space with a business that provides somewhere for people of all ages to visit.'' The friendly animals include Joey the goat, Latte and Milkshake the silver belted Galloway cows, Mr Bo-Jangles the miniature pony, Piggles and Bertie the kunekune pigs and Rosie the Rom- ney sheep and her sheepy friends who are a collection of Polled Dorsets and Suffolks. The animals can be hand fed with pellets which are for sale in the cafe. Ms Were says: We want to help kids under- stand that animals have feelings just like people and that they should be treated with kindness and respect.'' The cafe is open weekends only from 10am to 4pm. It serves breakfast from 10am to noon, homemade cakes and snacks, with half serves for children. The petting farm and cafe can also be booked for school visits and birthday parties. The Loop Road Cafe and petting farm is at 21 Man O'War Bay Rd, phone 372-5855.
