The Farm - Farmstay for Dogs Ltd is owned and operated by Kim Surman and Lee Olsen.
Kim has been around animals all her life, including many family horses and dogs and she has a natural affinity with them. Lee (aka Chop) is a hands on kind of guy, enjoys getting his hands dirty and is often seen mucking in around The Farm doing odd jobs and helping Kim keep the property spic and span.
They have two dogs - Max, an English Springer Spaniel who’s been part of their family from eight weeks of age, and Tommy, a Chocolate Labrador they have recently taken into their family. Their cats, Smokey and Heinie, can also be found supervising things on The Farm.
Max & Tommy have stayed at traditional kennels in the past, and this inspired Kim and Lee to create a purpose-built, caring and inclusive home away from home; where owners can be confident to leave their four-legged family members. Kim’s empathy and care for all animals is clear to see and your dog will come home happy and exhausted from their adventures at The Farm. For the more sedentary or older clientele, there are plenty of sunny spots to laze and watch the world go by.
"We believe that limited numbers, socialisation, lots of love, cuddles, exercise and stimulation will make your dog's stay with us the best experience."
