Agricultural activities in New Zealand
If you want to learn about the district’s knobbly purple claim-to-fame, book ahead for Kumara Ernie’s show. It’s surprisingly entertaining, usually involving a journey by home-built tractor-train through the fields to 'NZ's smallest church'.
Learn everything you need to know about sheep at the educational Agrodome. Shows include a parade of champion rams, a livestock auction, and shearing and doggy displays. The tour lets you check out farm animals including, among others, sheep. Other agro-attractions include a shearing-shed museum and cafe.
