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 (during lambing season).

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you would like to ask. We'll chat about 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 your choice of wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demonstration 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 team-building, date nights, get togethers and team building events. Please book a private experience for your group and I'll make sure you have lots of laughs, time to connect with nature and de-stress and learn a bit along the way. Fun for family/friend catch ups too. Message me to schedule your event. Individual bookings and kids groups also welcome.
Other things to note
This experience can be viewed from most devices. A larger screen is probably best to be able to see the outdoors, animals and wool craft in detail.

I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm and process my own wool, lama, possum and alpaca fibre. I am a teacher and 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 few years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres and love to pass this excitement onto others.
Our families have been involved in farming for many generations and are able to provide a unique insight into farm life in NZ.

I took daughter and her friends ages 12 to 16, on the virtual trip to Angie's sheep farm. We were excited to do something out of the ordinary since we have been on lockdown for so long. The experience on Angie's Farm was amazing! Angie is so friendly, entertaining, and extremely funny. The love she has for all of her critters was very endearing. 🥰 She engaged with each girl in our group individually and had them involved the entire time. We could not have asked for a better experience! Thank you Angie! It was a pleasure meeting you and your farm family.

Angie was so delightful and she made this experience super fun for all of us. She’s got the jokes ready :-) What a great opportunity to see a different way of life - and of course the animals are super full of personality and fun.

What a fun experience, great presentation, and beautiful countryside. We really enjoyed seeing the sheep and lambs, and learning about the farm and how wool is processed.

Angie was fantastic! My friend and I joined on a tour for Valentine’s Day. Angie was hilarious and warm, and her sheep were adorable and awesome! I learned so much and had a great time.

OMG! Best first online experience ever. Angie was so sweet, hilarious, and an awesome tour guide that was amazingly well prepared to make the most out of our experience. Her sheep's were so cute too! I booked the experience for two however due to poor planning on my side we had to increase the guests to four which she was not off-put by at all which was nice. She taught us the history, shared sheeps with us, had really fun quizzes, and told her warm/sweet personality matched her wit as she jokes around with us a ton too. We were drinking a bunch and played drinking games during her quizzes which made the experience even more fun too haha and she was totally cool about that. All of us were thoroughly impressed by our Airbnb online experience and are looking forward to partaking in more of those all because of Angie's amazingness 🙂 Thank you Angie!!!!
