We knew we were going to see some sheep but didn’t have any idea that we would watch the dogs round up the sheep and move them around the grounds, over 300 according to the owner. The roundup was very cool but watching them shear one of the sheep was a first time experience. The sheep are quite large and the “Shearer” handled them like they weighed almost nothing. The wool felt cool as did the sheep’s skin after being sheared. Now that was a lot of activity, but we were just getting started. We walked up the small path toward the home, where the owner had lived his whole life. It was the house he grew up in and he’d taken it over from his parents. The garden in the back of the house was beautiful. The food they served with our tea was awesome. Very tasty shortbread, little sweet muffin-type things and the best bread with butter and orange slices. I wish I’d taken another slice! Then you can go and visit a small cottage (summerhouse) which would be a romantic place to stay with it’s own little pond. Then we saw the garden (Potager) with beautiful flowers and fruits and veggies. Very impressive and quite beautiful. There are many things to do in Blenheim but this was a nice break from the Wineries. It was a calming place and fun to meet some of the locals.

During our Private Tauck Guided tour, we had the Terrific opportunity to visit Barewood Farms near Belham, New Zealand! A adventure of a lifetime! We experienced life on a working Sheep Farm, a Sheep Shearing Exhibition & a Lovely Tea Reception at the Family home! Absolutely Delightful & Charming!!!

What a lovely afternoon we enjoyed here, learning about sheep farming and seeing the amazing gardens in bloom. We also had an excellent lunch with some of the food served from the gardens on the property.

We went to this garden and FRan thru a tour on Holland America. The sheep farm experience was fun with a herder showing how whistle and dogs control hundreds of sheep. We got to it from Pichon. Then we had a lovely luncheon prepared by the owners wife and friends that was wonderful. Her gardens are beautiful even in fall with a great variety of blooming flowers intermingled artistically with fruits and vegetables. If you aren't on a tour you could drive it easily from Picton. This is a must. Call ahead for reservations 64-3-575-7432

We stopped here as part of a tour from our cruise ship. I’m so glad we did. We watched a sheep dog demonstration and a sheep shearing both of which were not only entertaining but educational as well. Then we went to the house for a most delicious meal complete with New Zealand wine and dessert. We were made to feel totally welcome. The gardens are superb to meander through. Slow down and take time to smell the roses and all the other wonderful flowers too.
