At this working sheep-and-cattle farm you can get a guided tour through the farm(where you can get up close and personal with the animals) and the kiwifruit orchard, but the main attraction is the farm show. Well-trained dogs run across the backs of sheep, and there are a shearing demonstration and lots of barking, noise, and farmyard smells. Heads-up to the uninitiated: what the shearer is wearing is not an undershirt but a shearing vest, a classic Kiwi item. Expect plenty of wisecracks about pulling the wool over your eyes and about Whoopi Goldberg (here, a Lincoln sheep with dreadlock-style wool). Sure, it's corny, but it's fun. Shows are at 9:30, 11, and 2:30 daily.
