An excellent couple of hours activity with young kids. It was personal and not commercial, with Lex being a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Feeding animals, sitting in a tractor and learning something about the life of a Kiwi farmer. Thank you.

It was a last minute decision to experience the farming life and it was worth it. Something less touristic, yet more engaging. With our guide Lex, we toured this massive land up and down the hills. The landscape is astonishing from up the hills. Freddy...More
