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.
Beautiful farm with breathtaking mountain backdrops and happy animals running around the paddocks. Our 1.5 years old loved it! We got up close to the animal and got a chance to feed them and take photos. Small group which is great, in fact it was...More

Beautiful rustic Woolshed with wedding site in amongst the Manuka trees. Spectacular views over Wanaka from the wedding site and the Woolshed. Superb friendly wedding co-ordination by Suzy and her team - it's a dry hire so you have to bring virtually everything but the...More
