The video image moves itself, but visitors can use the Left and Right buttons to move the image or simply click on it to stop it and drag to where you would like to look. You can also zoom in closer for a better look. Use the “Next” and “Previous” buttons to move through the slides. The tour can also be viewed in “Full” screen mode.

The tour begins in the back of the house, then moves onto the front. Other locations of the farm include:
