Collingwood Children's Farm at Abbotsford offers city folk a taste of country life. When the kids take a break from squawking at the chickens and admiring the peacocks, grab some nosh at The Farm Cafe; one of Melbourne's most beautiful cafes serving wholesome, sustainable, ethical food that tastes great. The cafe's decor is country chic and the kitchen serves great coffee and impressively rustic fare.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
As a mother of two boys under the age of three living in the northern suburbs, there are certain things that are a necessity. A membership to the Collingwood Children’s Farm rates high on my list, closely followed by a decent cup of coffee, which thankfully they do at the Farm Cafe. Wear the wee ones out watching the cow being milked, trying to catch a sheep and watching the guinea pigs doing whatever it is that guinea pigs do before stopping for a breather at this outdoor cafe. Don’t worry, you don’t need a membership to eat here as entry to the Farm Cafe is free.

Food-wise there’s plenty on offer here for grown-ups and children alike. Start your day with the hearty farmer’s breakfast comprising poached free-range eggs with crispy bacon, field mushrooms, roasted Roma tomatoes, baked beans and tomato relish. For lunch tuck in to the farm’s own traditional beef and vegetable rolls served with crispy greens, mustard seed potato salad and tomato relish, or an individual organic roast vegetable and pesto tartlet piled with rocket and fetta. Kids get their own menu too with offerings like the baked beans in a little bowl with buttered toast soldiers, best enjoyed with a hot chocolate or, for the grown ups, organic coffee.
