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 (only 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 opportunity for guests to ask questions about farming, our friendly, wooly friends or wool processing.

This Experience is great for team-building, date night, get togethers. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups (30)? Send me a message to book for up to 100 guests (special rates). Bookings are per person, contact me for availability or rates for your group.

First lamb has been born now! See our first babies of the season, don't miss the cuteness!

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.

We had a great time with Angie and her sheep! Would highly recommend for any corporate or family event. Angie's sense of humor was very entertaining and the animals are full of personality!

I coordinated this event for my work colleagues. Angie helped get the private event set-up and accommodated use of a different platform as our company is unable to use Zoom. She was respective of our time and hopped onto the call in advance. I love how she personalized the event to our group, encouraging members to write into the chat with questions and using our names to respond to our questions. She has a great sense of humor that was enjoyable and gave us some much needed laughs. We all enjoyed this experience greatly! Thank you, Angie!

Angie's experience is really immersive. I have never been to New Zealand and seeing the farm gave me a sense and feel of the area. It was beautiful! The sheeps are cute and fluffy. I really find it great how she started to talk about the entire cycle of taking care of sheep and how to get wool out of their coats. It was amazing! New Zealand has become part of my bucket list! Thanks Angie for opening up the farm with us. It was truly eye opening and refreshing to see New Zealand!

Angie's experience is lovely, I felt transported back to New Zealand without even leaving my seat. I enjoyed tidbits of information shared by Angie, her personal stories and her great sense of humor. I'd recommend this experience for any age group!

Thanks Angie for taking us to the far away New Zealand and shown us her sheep. We didn't expect to be that engaged and had so much fun during the 1 hour (didn't know how 1 hr passed by). And this is much more funny than we expected, to not only watch those woolly sheep, but also know a lot about how a farm like this will run day to day in New Zealand. Angie tells good stories and she's with the best sense of humor. Please consider of spraying the fringes for them in the next round : D
