I took a group of 14 Taiwanese students from IPU New Zealand to Rangitikei Farmstay. The owner is very friendly. The scenery is beautiful and feeding the animal up close alone is worth it. Definitely recommend for a day trip. If you can, spend a night here and you can star gazing and look at some glow worm too.

After being on the road travelling for a while now, this place was one of our favourite stays, because we felt 'home away from home' from the first minute after arriving at the farm. It is a place where you can... More

Wonderful place, lovely people. We stayed in the west hut which was really comfortable with amazing views down the valley. The bunkhouse had a very authentic feel following all of the well documented hard work that had gone into its development. The farm tour in the all terrain vehicle and the mustering is not to be missed. To see Andrew... More

Fantastic experience. Students enjoyed the experience and we were fantastically hosted by Andrew and Kylie Stewart. Students got to enjoy a number of activities while on their camp and were put of their comfort zones at times with activities which was a good challenge for the students.

Without a doubt the single most amazing location in the Manawatu to catch the starry night sky! Night spent in a beautiful vintage cabin, with lovely animal companions around that kept us entertained the whole trip. Thank you for having us Kylie :) Send my love to Porky -Kimberley W
