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.
