What you'll do

The experience is hosted online and will start with an introduction of what you can expect the next hour. As it is a lifestyle farm, the animals are rotated around the different paddocks (fields), but there is a good chance that you will get to see dairy cows, ewes (sheep) and chickens.

The main objective of this experience is to allow you a feel of what New Zealand and nature has to offer. As the experience is hosted 100% outdoors it could be a sunny day, or it could be raining and cloudy.

The camera will be projected onto the paddocks where I will take you on a walking tour. Along the way, I will explain things that go on around the farm, share interesting facts about the animals, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions while watch me feed the animals.

Additionally, for about 10 mins I will leave the camera sitting on a tripod, where you will have the opportunity to enjoy the wilderness. The sights and sounds that nature has to offer.

You could be viewing the great outdoors live from your office or from the comforts of your home. The perfect opportunity to de-stress.

NB: If you intend to watch the experience with a friend from the same device, it is OK for just one person to sign up. :-)

I relocated from Singapore to New Zealand in 1996. Since 2012 I live on a farm in the city of Palmerston North, which is about 2 hours north of Wellington, capitol of New Zealand.

This is my piece of heaven, and I absolutely adore the great outdoors it offers - the green fields, majestic sunrise and sunset, and of course, my farm animals.

I have hosted friends and acquaintances from all over the world. One thing that my guests enjoy the most, is the opportunity to experience country living.

Be it rain or shine, cloudy or windy, it's just you and nature.

Arthur takes you on an up close and personal visit of his lovely farm. He has chickens and sheep (adorable). I enjoyed listening to his stories about everyday life on the farm and the work that goes into it. New Zealand looks absolutely stunning and Arthur made sure that we had plenty of opportunities to take in the scenery. Thanks for such a unique experience!

This experience with Arthur was a breath of fresh air in this difficult time. Arthur was very welcoming and full of stories of his transition to becoming a farmer in rural NZ. His farm has beautiful views in all directions and his lovely animals were definitely a treat to see. We were able watch Arthur feed some ewe and chickens while asking all that we wanted to know about his farm and the animals. Can't wait to be back in New Zealand some day and maybe visit Arthur on his farm! Thanks for the experience Arthur!

I really enjoyed the tour! I learned a lot of new information about sheep, chickens and the overall maintenance of a farm. It's also really wonderful to see how much Arthur has learned from making his career switch. He's really passionate and it was lovely spending an hour with him!

I was viewing at 5 am from my location but it was totally worth it, I felt like a pseudo farmer? Haha. The scenery was really nice and though it's difficult and hard work, the experience made me want to also venture into farming and agriculture more. Thanks so much for this opportunity! It's fun to see live animals for a change :)

I will probably never get to New Zealand in person so it was wonderful to have a taste of it this way and spend some leisurely time in the beauty there with a caring and informative guide.

The view of Arthur’s farm is soooo breathtaking, and it’s so relaxing even though I only saw it from afar. It felt like I was in NZ for a moment, what a great way to get away from the pandemic boredom. And must give a shoutout to the adorable sheep!
