Visite una de las tres granjas de ovejas que se encuentran en esta zona tranquila y pintoresca, en el corazón de la zona ovejera de Canterbury en esta excursión. En su viaje de regreso de la visita a la granja de ovejas, puede elegir la opción superior, que incluye una visita a un viñedo en North Canterbury/Waipara y disfrute de una cata de diferentes añadas. O bien, puede hacer un emocionante recorrido en lancha motora en el río Waimakariri.
Really wonderful tour. We got to see with my wife an authentic sheep farm, the shearing of a sheep, a sheep dog working going out to gather and bring back about 12 sheep and putthing them in a corner, all this done by a farmer only whistling at him. Unbelievable...
afterwards definitively book the jet boat tour which is only about 10 minutes down the road on the Waimakariri river. Great experience too to top off the day!
Was a little dissapointed in this tour. Basically just visited a man's back yard were there were about two dozen or so sheep. He gave a brief sheering demonstration, we had tea and cookies and left. It lasted about 30-40 minutes or so. I was expecting a little more especially considering the price of the tour.
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 sheep farm is small. Not many sheeps which expected I can see. Its only around 100 - 200 sheeps in the farm only. Anyway, sheep farm tour was good to understand the sheep shaving. If I got chance to shave the sheep, drink sheep's milk, it would be much better.
