You will see
- An authentic NZ farming experience
- Farm animals including lambs, cows and clever sheepdogs!
- Sheep shearing and an amazing dog trial
The Agrodome is located in the heart of a real 350-acre working farm. Join us for a guided tour of the farm, animals and our orchard.
Climb aboard the all-weather, all terrain vehicle as we begin the tour. Along the way, there are fascinating things to learn - and a few laughs too!
You'll get to hand-feed and take photos with all sorts of friendly animals, including Romney sheep, cattle, deer, llamas, ostrich, pigs and alpacas.
You'll also explore our certified fruit orchard and olive grove and have the chance to taste natural kiwifruit juice or kiwifruit wine and delicious sweet honey that comes from the farm. Hands-on, entertaining and educational - kids and adults alike love the Farm Tour. Remember to bring your camera!
During the Farm Show, you'll hear amazing facts and have a few laughs as you're introduced to 19 breeds of sheep. Then, witness a live sheep shearing demonstration and a fun sheep auction with bidding from the floor and audience participation.
But our animal stars are not just sheep. Our remarkable farm dogs will amaze you, as they demonstrate their ability to respond to commands and keep those sheep (and ducks!) in line!
If a hands-on experience is what you want, jump up on stage for the opportunity to feed the baby lambs or even hand-milk a cow!
