New Zealand farm is a part of Ambewela Farms which is located bit away from the main city. You may witness a picturesque view of the grassland either side of the road with herd of cattle.

The price for the tickets is bit worthless since we didn’t find much to observe; although we were exited to watch the cheese processing, they were playing a cheese processing video. But we were able to watch milking process and visit few sheds. The weather distracted us to walk around the farm.

Overall, this is a good place to visit for people who want to have an idea about a farm.

The experience of visiting the Ambewela farm is excellent. Herds of cows, viewing the green fields was a great sight. We can see different procedures for milking cows, making cheese, and so on. It's a good learning experience. When you come here you can taste the fresh hot milk...

Entering into the green pastures with cold mist gives a great feeling.
It's wonderful to learn about how they milk cows with technology. Seeing cows walking along the way to the milking area was a great opportunity.
The Stud bulls were really big than expected.
Female goats were kept in separate cages with 2 male goats on both side cages.
I was amazed to look at the size of rabbit.
Finally had the opportunity to taste fresh cow milk & goat milk.
A great place to visit with your kids.

Made the 17km journey all the way from Nuwara Eliya town, only to be informed that the farm is closed for visitors due the Corona Virus. What irks me is not the fact that they have been compelled to take precautions, but that they wait till visitors come all that way to the entrance only to be asked to turn back and go.

Maybe if they published a circular or public notice, it would help with visitors not wasting their precious time and fuel making the drive. Poor Management decisions or inconsiderate management for sure.

Located approximately 17 km away from the Nuwaraeliya city Centre. This is one of the prime locations of commercial-scale fresh milk production in the country. New Zealand farm is also part of the Ambewela farm. So, sometimes the place is known as “little New Zealand”. The road accessing the farm has a breathtaking view of the lush green grasslands.

Need to get tickets to enter the premises. A large area has been dedicated for maintaining cattle, goats and hairs. Visitors can see the milking process. We went around 5.30pm and there was one milking scheduled at around 6.00pm. There is a little shop to purchase milk, cheese and butter. However, does not have much variety or collection. Didn’t enjoy the tour after seeing poorly maintained caged animals.

Its a long way to travel to get to Ambewela Farm from Nuwara Eliya. If you are going to worlds end make sure you make it in the same trip. You're visit will take about 1-2 hours based on the level of interest. There are particular times which you must be mindful of.eg:- time they milk cattle, feed them etc.
But be ready for the foul smell inside the areas the animals are fed.

You dont need any prior approval to enter this place. The entry ticket is Rs. 50 per person.

The nature surrounding the ambewela farm area is a very spectacular one, starting from the turn offat the ambewela railway station to the farm it’s very pleasing nature view to the eye.

The farm area is sometimes surrounded by mist and the weather can be very cold.

Even though this was my second visit, my family and I really enjoyed the visit, the cows, goats, rabbits and specially the milking of the cows at 12.00-12.30pm which was an good experience that you don’t see every day.
Farm has a shop available where you can by fresh milk, cheese, yoghurt …etc. ,
This is worth visiting

The journey to Ambewala farm from N'eliya is approx. 17kms which would take about 30mints due to the roads not carpeted and lots of bends. You get to pass a beautiful lake and a dam which you will not feel like taking your eyes off from the view! If you go to nuwaraeliya, you should visit the ambewala farm to check out some giant animals! :-)

This place is 5km off road from Horton Plains route. They charge 200 Srilankan rupees for foreigners and show stinking cow shade and goat shade and rabbit farm. The place was just stinking even from 200 meters distance. We went half the way and returened back .

The place was beautifully located, and had to pay Rs 200 for the entrance ticket. I think it gave an interesting insight about the dairy farms and how they function.
