Visit our 200 acre bull beef farm, learn a little about what and how we farm and then meet, feed and pet our collection of cute farm animals. Either myself or my daughter Kate will be your tour guide for the next hour. The tour begins at the family house where we will get you into a pair of gumboots (don't forget to bring a pair of socks). There is no set order as to how the tour goes, it all depends on where the animals are located at that time and also what is happening on the farm. We will discuss the process of rearing bulls from calves and then fattening for market. The majority of the tour is spent meeting our farm pets and feeding them so if you love animals this is your chance to get close and personal. We have 4 alpaca, pet sheep, Eponine the Kune Kune pig, a large flock of chickens and ducks. Usually the tour is joined by some of our farm dogs. During Spring/Summer the chickens and ducks are often breeding so sometimes you will get to see fluffy babies. From August -October we are rearing calves so bottle feeding a calf is possible. Bottle feeding lambs is also available August - October. This is a walking tour and our property is quite steep so good mobility is required. This experience is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or in a wheelchair.
We provide gumboots so you don't have to worry about getting your shoes dirty. Remember to bring a pair of socks!
The tour is spent outdoors on our 200 acre farm which is approximately 5-10 minutes drive from Oamaru. You will be walking around selected parts of the property with your tour guide, meeting and feeding the animals.
4歳以上の方6名まで参加できます。 If you have a fear of animals, including dogs, then the farm tour is not the activity for you. Young children who have not been exposed to animals can often get quite scared.
We don't recommend wearing your fanciest clothes, this is a farm after all. Some of the animals can be naughty and try to jump up or nibble on clothes so there is a chance you may get dirty! If you have a fear of animals, including dogs, then this is not the place to be.
