Hawke’s Bay Farm Tour

(1 Review)

Enjoy a personalised New Zealand farm experience like no other with our Hawke’s Bay farm tour in beautiful Mangarara.

Join your driver/guide for the day, where you’ll learn about their rural background, where your food comes from and how farmers are challenging the norm with the move to sustainable, regenerative farming practices. Naturally, there will be plenty of opportunities to hang out with the animals too. Specifically for small groups, this is very a personal insight into the rural New Zealand way of life.


8am to 5pm (if you can’t spare the whole day, let us know and we can arrange a good time for you to join in).

Pick up

From central locations around Hawke’s Bay to be advised.

  • Pick up from Napier, Hastings and Havelock North
  • We’ll head south through rural Havelock North to Tukituki Dairy Goats to meet and pet the goats that are producing milk for the changing dairy industry.
  • The tour continues along the Tukituki river through Patangata to Mangarara, our family farm. Here you’ll learn about how we produce healthy food, practice ethical animal husbandry and regenerative land stewardship.
  • Enjoy a wholesome lunch at the lodge overlooking a picturesque lake, surrounded by native trees and birdlife.
  • Witness a real kiwi working dog demonstration.
  • Watch a sheep being shorn first hand and spend some time with free range pigs and chooks.
  • Finally, we’ll head to the local country pub for a ‘cold one’ after a day on the farm.
  • On our way back, we’ll travel north via Elsthorpe seeing a different side of Kahuraniki, Te Mata Peak and the Tukituki river.

If you are coming to Hawke’s Bay and really want to see the real New Zealand, then this is for you. Meet fantastic people, learn heaps and get to hang out with cute animals. Can you get any more awesome? The Mates Travel team made us feel welcome and looked after our group so well. We got to meet and learn from some amazing farmers who were interesting and inspiring – giving me hope for the future of the land. My highlight was seeing the goats and getting to pat them, so cute!
