Only one hours drive from Christchurch, nestled among the stunning landscape of the Rakaia Gorge, our sheep and cattle farm tours take you on an in-depth experience of our beautiful property. We will give you an insight into our busy farming lifestyle and how we look after our flock of 5,000 sheep and 400 cattle!

And if you decide you want to stay; we have a cosy on-farm cottage you can settle into for the night and enjoy the stunning mountain views a while longer. To make a reservation for either, contact us here.

Choose the perfect tour for your group:

Our farm tours are perfect for anyone who:

  • Is interested in learning more about farming
  • Would love to know where their food comes from
  • Is visiting NZ and wants to see a real New Zealand farm
  • Wants the opportunity to cuddle a sheep
  • Has a passion/interest in regenerative agriculture

Have a look through our tours to see which one will be the perfect fit for your group!

Tailored Tours

We are happy to tailor tours to the needs of any group:

Whether you are from a farming background yourself and want to learn solely about our operation and the way we do things…

Whether you are here to learn about regenerative agriculture…

Whether you have never been on a farm in your life and want to see the animals up close and have the opportunity to touch a sheep…

Whether you are only interested in sheep farming, or perhaps only interested in cattle…

We can absolutely tailor a tour to what you want and the experiences you are after (please note we do have certain exceptions). So get in touch with us today and help us create the perfect tour for your party!

What you need to bring on your tour:

  • Warm jacket/coat
  • Camera!
  • Water bottle
  • Shoes you don’t mind getting dirty (we will be getting out in some of the paddocks)

Choosing the best day for your tour:

We love nothing more than when our guests see Benlea at its best. If possible, we recommend checking out the weather before you choose your tour date to ensure you don’t miss out on the incredible mountain views!

You can find the forecast specifically for Benlea Farm here.
