Want to learn about how a sustainable farm works in the modern world? Reconnect with the land and try a little farming yourself at the scenic Battle Hill Farm Forest Park.

A sheep dog and a flock of sheep in a grassy fieldGet up close to the farm's woolly residents and watch the skilled farm dogs rounding up sheep with precision. Participate in fun, educational activities, including sheep shearing and wool spinning or feed the freshwater tuna (eels) for a memorable farm experience.

Enjoy the picturesque beauty of Battle Hill Farm Forest Park, with rolling hills, lush paddocks, and native bush providing the perfect backdrop for your day of exploration.

This event promises a day of outdoor, hands-on whānau experiences for all ages. Bring a picnic or check out the delicious offerings from local food trucks. 

As this is a working farm, please leave your own dogs at home.
