Must visit when you in Queenstown

Until we went there we never realised how hard it is to run and maintain a farm. The tour guide (I think his name was Max) gave us really good tour and explained the whole farm function clearly. We got to see how Farm dogs round up sheep and cattle and got to feed lamb and calf. Could not see sheep shearing when we were there but if you visit during end of winters you may be lucky. Ice Merino is sourced from this farm and they even source to premium brands like Armani.

Loved it

Such an enjoyable and informative day. The cruise to mount Nicholas Farm was breathtaking and the farm tour was fun and very informative. We all learnt so much about sheep, shearing and wool. The food at the end of the tour was delicious. If you do the tour through winter ensure to rug up as it is very cold.

Great tour

The cruise was nice, commentary hard to hear and understand at times. Farm tour with Gail as the guide was excellent. Learned so many things about the farm and the animals. Highly recommend.
