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.

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you may have. I'll explain 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. Then we will select wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn. We might meet Joey the sheep dog too.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demo on my spinning wheel. There will be lots of opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our friendly, wooly friends or wool processing.

This Experience is great fun for corporate events, team-building, date nights, and special occasions with friends and family. You're welcome to book a private experience for your group for lots of laughs, time to connect with nature and de-stress and learn a bit along the way.

Please message me to schedule your event or if the time you would like is not on the schedule. Individual bookings and educational kids groups also welcome.

I was born in New Zealand and my husband and I I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm. We have 75 years of farming history that I delight in sharing with others. We care for our special fine wool sheep and shear them ourselves. I work my sheep dog to assist with rounding up and moving our sheep daily.

I also process my own wool, lama, mohair and alpaca fibre. I really 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 many years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres.
Our families have been in farming for many generations are able to provide a unique insight into farm life in NZ. Join the original, authentic connection to nature and animals in New Zealand.

Angie did a great job of keeping my team engaged. She allowed for participation and even had some of the quieter teammates sharing feedback. This was an easy-going, fun, team event that I would recommend.

Angie is just a wonderful, humble and a positive person. Me and my team joined for a virtual tour on Angie’s farm and it was just amazing experience. She is so engaging and active throughout the whole session. Just awesome!

Five star experience! This is the second time I booked this activity and it was for several individuals at my workplace. We had a private group scheduled. Angie is a pleasure to communicate with. She is also knowledgeable, engaging, and funny. We loved seeing all of the animals on the farm! It was a great learning experience as she answered all of our many questions. We had a fantastic time - thank you for everything!
