Convenient pick-up, friendly driver, and clean mini bus. We were in a very small group which was great because we were comfortable and able to get more involved and ask questions and have the undivided attention of the driver and host/farmer. We visited a small farm, we were greeted immediately by a lovely older gentleman who is an inspiration to everyone to be so active and in control of sheep. Some sheep were in a stall awaiting our arrival, we were shown how to sheer them and given the opportunity to have a turn ourselves. We then went out to a paddock and watched how the farmer instructed a sheep dog how to herd up sheep and bring them to us. It was amazing to watch how such a little dog was in control of so many sheep. We had some photo opportunities with the sheep and farm. We then headed inside to have a beautiful morning tea, a fantastic spread of homemade baking, and great conversation. A pleasant and informative way to spend a morning.
This tour as great! The guys who run it are friendly and genuine. Got to shear a sheep, eat shortbread for morning tea and talk rugby. Perfect morning
