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 am a kiwi living in San Francisco: a friend bought me this experience for my birthday and it was awesome! Angie is an excellent host and it was really fun to have a good laugh with her and her dear sheep. Made me homesick to hear all the birds in the background...... felt like I could almost smell the green grass and wooly lambs. So fun.

Loved it, Angie has a great quirky sense of humour, and she managed to engage us for the full hour, even in a virtual setting! Would recommend for sure!

Seeing the sunny landscape of Angie's farm in New Zealand and the adorable faces of the sheep really made our gray day at home brighter! Angie is an engaging and funny guide and we learned some interesting facts about sheep and New Zealand. We definitely recommend this for a "date night" or something different for a virtual family activity.

Angie's farm tour was a fun, family-friendly experience. We got to meet lambs, ewes, her dog Buddy, chickens, and get a tutorial on how to shear sheep and how the wool is spun afterward. She was very friendly, funny, and answered all of our questions.

What a great experience! I wasn't expecting much since it was on Zoom but I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun I had. Angie is hilarious and the sheep have so much personality. Learning about the whole wool process was so fun and I think Angie did a wonderful job keeping the experience engaging.
