farm barn cafe and giftware

haere mai & welcome

We're a friendly cafe with a warm inviting atmosphere – think of us as your local.

Situated on the top of Mount Michael, a five-minute drive from Fairlie and halfway between Christchurch and Queenstown, you'll find the Farm Barn Café. Known for its family-friendly vibe, homemade fare, delicious cakes and plenty of sweet treats to fill your tummy, you'll also find a well-curated selection of giftware with a great range of children’s books and quality clothing.

Oh, and did we yet mention the cute animals that you can send the kids to feed while you enjoy that perfect cup of coffee? There’s Gerty the goat, Daisy the deer and a handful of very friendly sheep that enjoy a pat and a treat from little hands. You might also get lucky and spot the cafe dogs, who are just as friendly as the rest of the animals.
