Get a real taste of New Zealand farm life and join us on our day to day running of our sheep and beef farm at Curio Bay.
Our 380 hectare farm is situated right on the edge of the wild southern coast, next to native rainforest. We run 2,000 Coopdale breeding ewes, 400 replacement hoggets, 80 beef cows, 50 yearling cattle and some Highlanders. Rex, Stew, Spot, Jo, Maxi, Rowdy and T, our farm dogs, are our most valuable workers.
See the dogs in action, enjoy spectacular sea views, learn the history of how this second generation farm was developed from bush into workable and sustainable farmland, and gain an understanding of what effort is involved in growing healthy livestock on green pastures all year round.
Bookings are essential and tours vary depending on the season and what is happening on the farm. Our tours run in the morning and can accommodate a maximum of four people, ensuring plenty of one-on-one conversation.
