Stay with locals and experience life on a Kiwi farm. We farm cattle & sheep on 200 acres, approximately 6km from historic Oamaru.
From late August to mid October we rear calves so if you visit during this time you have the opportunity to pitch in and help. Other animals on the farm include pet sheep/lambs, alpaca, working dogs, chickens, ducks, 2 cats and Greta the naughty goat.
Accommodation is within our family home - we have 2 bedrooms available, with Guest Share bathroom/toilet. A delicious continental breakfast and farm tour are included in your stay.
Our close situation to Oamaru makes sight-seeing so easy!
