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.

Our wooly sheep will come right up to us to say hello and have a pat and I'll answer any questions you may have. I'll explain 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 wool, alpaca, lama and possum fibres to blend and card into large batts of fibre that are then spun into yarn. We might meet Joey the sheep dog too.

I'll use the wool that we've just made to give you a spinning demo 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 corporate events, team-building, date nights, and special occasions with friends and family. You're welcome to book a private experience for your group for lots of laughs, time to connect with nature and de-stress and learn a bit along the way.

Please message me to schedule your event or if the time you would like is not on the schedule. Individual bookings and educational kids groups also welcome.

I was born in New Zealand and my husband and I I live on a small Corriedale sheep farm. We have 75 years of farming history that I delight in sharing with others. We care for our special fine wool sheep and shear them ourselves. I work my sheep dog to assist with rounding up and moving our sheep daily.

I also process my own wool, lama, mohair and alpaca fibre. I really 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 many years.
I have a passion for working with natural fibres.
Our families have been in farming for many generations are able to provide a unique insight into farm life in NZ. Join the original, authentic connection to nature and animals in New Zealand.

Angie was very caring and told me more about sheep I ever knew. She answered all my questions. The videos and pictures enhanced the presentation!

My partner and I had a great time with Angie and her sheep! Both informative and fun, with lots of opportunities to ask questions, test our knowledge, and see some of the activities of sheep farming live. Angie made us feel very welcomed, and obviously has a very loving connection with her flock. The perfect virtual "getaway" while travel is still a challenge.

We were hoping for an online experience with live animals and Angie and all her farm friends delivered! Angie was a lovely host with no shortage of sheep jokes and lots of insider knowledge about New Zealand's biggest export industry. So nice to be transported to the southern hemisphere in the middle of winter.

Very kind and considerate host! We had some scheduling issues and she worked with us to find a good solution. The trip was lovely with lots of interesting information, adorable sheep and a lovely wry sense of humor. Thanks for the wonderful experience!
