What you'll do

Your two hour experience at Five Gates Farm will give you the opportunity to relax and unwind in a beautiful coastal setting with stunning views of Kapiti Island and the Tararua mountain range. You will learn how we manage our 10 acre small holding to grow sustainable produce and care for our animals. You will get up close and personal to hand-feed our herd of 15 alpacas in their paddock, spending time to get to know these amazing animals and learn all about their history, habits and how each of them have their own personalities. On arrival you'll be welcomed by Julie your host, and be introduced to the alpacas, with plenty of time to learn all about them and hand-feed them plus some great photo opportunities with stunning views in the background. A tour of the farm will include meeting the cows, chickens (and looking for eggs) and meeting our two beagles Oscar and Henry. The experience ends with a soft drink or tea/coffee and delicious home-baking from the farm kitchen.

Julie

We run a small sustainable farm on the beautiful Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. We are passionate about our environment, producing all we can from the land, and providing a safe, healthy and happy life for all our animals. For over three years we have re-homed Alpacas from around New Zealand, and have fallen in love with these calm and inquisitive animals. Spending each day with the herd, we know their individual characters and want to share all we have learnt with others. Mental well-being and resilience is so important in today's stressful world - so we have committed to engage the community and guests to Five Gates Farm by hosting Yoga retreats and farm tours with the Alpacas. We want to share this unique and picturesque location to help people unwind, relax and learn more about how being around Alpacas is so calming and therapeutic

Where you'll be

Five Gates Farm is a 10 acre small-holding on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand, overlooking Kapiti Island with the Tararua mountain range as a backdrop. Located in the rural area of Te Horo Beach, we are just 1.5 km from a rugged and unspoilt beach, and just one hour north of Wellington the capital city. During the experience you will be on farmland, crossing paddocks on uneven ground so suitable footwear is recommended.
