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 (only during lambing season).

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you would like to ask. We can talk about 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. Next you can select your choice of wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demonstration on my spinning wheel. Then there will be lots of opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our beautiful friendly wooly friends or wool processing.
This experience is suitable for beginners with no previous experience needed.

This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups (30)? Send me a message to book for up to 100 guests.

First lamb has been born July, 2020. See our first babies of the season, don't miss the cuteness!

I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm and process my own wool, lama, possum and alpaca fibre. I am a teacher and 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 few years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres and love to pass this excitement onto others.

This is a great experience for the whole family. If you’re debating taking this tour, take it! Angie is personable and warm and will make you feel like you’re really there with the adorable sheep. Her family farm is idyllic and you’ll learn a bunch too. Highly recommended 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

This was a really good lockdown 'night out' for our group. Angie was a very organised yet flexible host. She paced the talk really well, and responded to each individual's different interests and questions. Angie had a great sense of humour and it was amazing how quickly she established a rapport with us all. We met the different kinds of sheep and found out about shearing and wool production. We joined from U.K and it was great seeing the dawn come up in NZ at 8pm U.K time. We have had positive comments all day from members of our group who attended. Mainly they've been asking when we can all go again!

It's merely pleased to see a horse frolicking and some sheeps bleating naturally. They help me forget complicated conditions, even though it is a short time.

This was such a fun event! I organized it for a team building event for coworkers and it was a great and very funny way to end the day, Angie takes a sweet subject and makes it even more fun through her personality

We really enjoyed watching the sheep, learning about New Zealand's culture, history and the host's farm. We felt a part of the farm, felt connected to the sheep, and even plan to join the experience again in a few months when the sheep would have had their babies.

This was very unique and a great opportunity to learn more about New Zealand’s sheep. If you’re missing live petting zoos and/or have an interest in farm animals, this would be a great experience. Angie was very witty and made sure it was interactive!
