New Zealand, A Day in the Life On A Modern Dairy Farm

What you'll do

Learn, laugh, Grow and fall in love with our green countryside. Get a personal look into my life in this part of the world.

This educational experience is excellent for families and friends who love animals, corporate events, and virtual team building. Fully interactive, and we can host large groups. We offer free personalised trailers and can customise each experience.

Realistically there is no such thing as a "typical" day. While we are in the fields and the milking shed seven days a week, no two days are the same.

The scenery is green to the extreme. Fertile soils, reliable rainfall and kind temperatures have created pastoral heaven.

Because of this, New Zealand grass-fed cows produce some of the world best quality milk due to diet and their environment.

Learn why dairy farming is a big business and why it is New Zealand's top export earner. Please yourself on how we keep up to date with new farm technology.

More and more important is to learn about ways to make the farm more environmentally sustainable. So what are we doing to help with Global warming and changes to our carbon Footprint?

Get a glimpse into my personal life when not farming and discover the beauty of my country.

PS. We will show some excellent animal footage from our farm, but we cannot guarantee life interaction with any animals at the time of screening!

Ten years ago, I met my husband, who has been a dairy farmer for over 30 years. We live on an 800ha block of land in the middle of the North Island. My husband and his team are looking after 2200 cows on three separate farms with modern Rotaries. These have become popular due to milking efficiency in larger herds.

I have been a personal private guide for over 20 years and have hosted many exclusive travel groups throughout New Zealand. But due to Covid19 and no tourists, I got more engaged with the industry over the last two years.

For two seasons now, I have been in charge of all the carves born here and help in the background with day-to-day work. I love to share the knowledge I have gained over the last ten years, from a novice perspective to being part of running a successful farm.

This was a great experience to learn more about New Zealand and modern farming from a very knowledgeable source. Veronika is lovely and she shares her knowledge and passion for her country in her experience. I have New Zealand in my bucket list and as a seasoned tour guide, she was able to answer all of my questions and add some pointers. Kids will love the videos with the calves!

One of the nicest online experiences I have participated in so far! Veronika is such a great guide, she gave us more info than expected and made it so attractive for my 11 years daughter and myself. Now we love more these special animals and are eager to visit New Zealand and its amazing landscapes. Definitely, we will be planning a vacation to New Zealand next year, it is not a question anymore

We have a lot of fun and learn a lot of knowledge about running a cow farming business in New Zealand. Veronica is very helpful and knowledgeable and answered all the questions throughly. This is the first time we try out online experience on Airbnb, we really enjoyed it and it wouldn’t be the last one. Thank You Veronica 🙏
