“Good day out for little ones”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We took our little girl to see some animals, they have a nice setup where kids can hold rabbits and play with lambs and pet the animals, there is a maze and you can go on a tractor ride around the top end of the farm, they have just built a new playground so the kids can have a break from walking around, the staff are friendly and overall a good experience, we've been twice and its been a nice day out

“Wonderful visit”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We had an excellent time when we took our 21/2 year old grandson here last weekend.It was great for his age -group. All the helpers were so keen and enthusiastic and went out of their way to make it an enjoyable visit.There were lambs to pat, bunnies to hold and many small animals to feed. A highlight for our grandson were the pony rides and, of course, the tractor rides with Farmer Ben.We had only expected to be there for an hour or two but we ended up by being there for over 3 hours. All in all, an excellent day out.

“Unfair to compare price with zoo”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

It's a bit unfair to compare the price with the zoo which is funded by the Ratepayers and Taxpayers. This is a privately owned enterprise. The little cafe is great and my kids love a pony ride. Yes i think some council funding and support might help this place achieve more. But it's great having somewhere local to take the kids. And the bike track is right across the road and goes to Corbans. A nice little day out.

Thanks so much for your support :-) Yes we are a privately owned enterprise and running a place like this is very expensive! Hence we feel our prices currently set are fair and afforable to most people. As the new owners of Kiwi Valley Farm Park, we are excited about the vision we have for this place...we have some new and exciting things in the pipeline and we are determined in positively developing this beautiful farm! So watch this space!

“You have to be kidding!”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

This place is incredibly run-down and overpriced. Purchased a ticket of Treatme for 1/2 price and I still felt ripped off. You can get around this place in about 20 mins (max), the maze is falling apart and the only highlight is a two minute tractor ride up the hill and back!

Incredibly disappointed. For this price I could have taken my kids to the zoo and had a true day out - we arrived at 10 and there was not enough there to take us through to lunch - we were gone by 11am!

Also, cafe staff very unhelpful and verging on rude. Overall would not recommend nor would I go again.

As the new owners, we have great vision with an abundance of fresh new energy and motivation to put into positively developing Kiwi Valley Farm Park. We really do believe this place has the potential to be absolutely fantastic and we wont stop until we are satisfied ! The cafe here on site also has fresh new owners too - delicious food from a large menu and large choice of cabinet food, so things are definitely looking up!

“Super-cute place!”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Myself and a friend visited here today and I just adored it.
From the nice lady at the front desk to the lad who drove the tractor, I think the staff were superb...friendly and informative but not over the top.
We spent quite a while here, interspersed with a pretty nifty eggy bene at the cafe, listening to a very cool blues band. The food was very reasonably priced and very good quality.
Now for my favourite part....the animals.
As you walk in, the first section houses some rabbits...ranging in size from 4 month olds to some larger older ones. The staff were quick to ask if we wanted to hold the bunnies.....and of course we said yes (in fact the bunnies were so cute that we went back to this bit a second time) the next part was where we saw the most beautiful donkey called Eddie...he greeted us to a VERY noisy welcome!
In short, the goats were greedy and unspeakably cute......the cow was gorgeous....the sheep were lovely...the alpacas hilarious and the chickens were a constant companion throughout the walk around, but the star of the show was Eddie.
Clearly a lot of love has gone into this place.
I will most definitely be returning!
