What you'll do

You'll be transported to the New Zealand countryside to see the surrounds of our beautiful farm and meet our friendly, naturally coloured Corriedale sheep & lambs.

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you may have. I'll explain how they are looked after on the farm, the lambs and breeding cycle and how we rescue and carefully feed any orphan lambs. You can even learn a bit about the history of sheep farming in New Zealand.

Next, I'll explain how wool is shorn from the sheep, skirted, washed & dried. Then we will select wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn. We might meet Joey the sheep dog too.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demo on my spinning wheel. There will be lots of opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our friendly, wooly friends or wool processing.

This Experience is great fun for corporate events, team-building, date nights, and special occasions with friends and family. You're welcome to book a private experience for your group for lots of laughs, time to connect with nature and de-stress and learn a bit along the way.

Please message me to schedule your event or if the time you would like is not on the schedule. Individual bookings and educational kids groups also welcome.

I was born in New Zealand and my husband and I I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm. We have 75 years of farming history that I delight in sharing with others. We care for our special fine wool sheep and shear them ourselves. I work my sheep dog to assist with rounding up and moving our sheep daily.

I also process my own wool, lama, mohair and alpaca fibre. I really enjoy showing guests the basics of fibre preparation, carding, spinning and knitting or felting. I have been knitting since my grandmother taught me as a child and spinning for a many years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres.
Our families have been in farming for many generations are able to provide a unique insight into farm life in NZ. Join the original, authentic connection to nature and animals in New Zealand.

Angie made sure the experience was fun for the whole family and kept the children engaged and entertained with fun facts, jokes and charming animals. Definitely recommend the experience.

This was our time trying a virtual experience for date night and it was wonderful! My husband and I both love animals and Angie’s tour was perfect for us! All of her sheep have character and interesting names (especially Moonshine). Her sheep dog Joey is super handsome and great at his job. There are also lambs who are only a few weeks old! They are so cute I cannot believe they are real. (If you are reading this in September 2021, book now to see the baby lambs!)

Angie is a stellar host. She made the experience so fun and engaging for my team. We loved learning about the farm and the sheep! The landscape and animal sounds provided an idyllic experience. The team is still talking about it!! We were provided 60 min of calm in this challenging pandemic and we’ll never forget it.

Angie is an amazing host and the sheep on her farm are extremely cute. I so wish I could have had the experience in person and interacted with the sheep and the sheepdog Joey. It was a fun and informative experience. Highly recommended!

The sheep farm tour with Angie was a perfect experience for a date night at home. Angie was so funny, we learned a lot, and the sheep and lambs are super cute!

Angie goes out of her way to make sure guests see the things on her farm that are of interest to them. She welcomes questions and her tour is interactive in that she asks questions of participants. Angie and her lifestyle are inspiring.
