Agritourism Itineraries

Agritourism is becoming increasingly popular because many city dwellers have realised that getting back to nature and a break from the hustle and bustle of the city can be pretty therapeutic. A visit to Southland would feel incomplete without some agritourism experiences thrown into the mix. 

What will you do? Stay at a paddock-to-plate farmstay? Then wake up to feed some cute and fluffy alpacas? Want to learn more about farm animals?
