Itinerary

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 800 acre block of land in the middle of the North Island. My husband and his team  look  after 2200 cows on three separate farms with modern rotaries.

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 farming industry over the last two years.

For two seasons now, I have been in charge of all the calves 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.
