The hard working, rich and happy ranchers and their families live in the rancher's home every day. Only then can they really understand the real life of New Zealanders and the real life of New Zealand farmers. The host couple is very hospitable, sincere and sincere. We know from the conversation that the hostess is Dutch. She came here with her parents when she was sixteen years old and met her husband, who is two years older. Now she is sixty years old. After the marriage, they agreed not to have children at first, formulated a detailed goal of struggle, while working and saving money, hard work for many years not only accumulated savings but also accumulated experience of cattle raising. Because of the preferential policies of the local government, they borrowed money to buy land to build grasslands, build houses and raise cows. They are both ranchers and farm workers. Now they have developed into hundreds of hectares of pasture. More than 370 cows have become New Zealand's largest supplier of dairy products. Every morning, the male master gets up early to take care of the pasture, while the daughter-in-law milks the cows on the workshop automatic production line at 5:30 on time, filters them, inspects them strictly, cans them, and produces nearly 10 tons of milk every day. Such a large scale and production, that is, couples and sons and daughters-in-law, and employ a female worker, weekend daughter and son-in-law to help, all production is automated. After decades of struggle, they built houses on their own land (for their sons and daughters, too). After hard work, they wash their sweat, take off their work clothes and enjoy a modern comfortable and happy life in a comfortable home. On weekends, couples ride bicycles, commute more than 100 kilometers to clubs, and granddaughters go to the city to participate in art performances. In addition to helping her husband work and keeping housework in order, the hostess not only keeps the house clean and tidy, but also has good taste in household accessories. After two days together, her face is full of heartfelt happiness, and the most words on her lips are "happy ", and it's her happy, Mr. happy, son happy, daughter happy, granddaughter happy, their whole family happy. We deeply wish the happy family happy forever. (Figure 4, the hostess shows us the photos of her family's vicissitudes and development. Fig. 5. Let's taste the fresh milk squeezed that day. Fig. 6. The hostess's big breakfast for us.
Eggerton Farm is one of the best tourist attractions in New Zealand. The farm and pasture area is 350 acres (135 hectares), which is the largest tourist pasture in New Zealand. The pasture is privately owned and managed by two families. Here you can enjoy New Zealand's most traditional and largest farm featured performances, experience real pasture life and participate in rich outdoor activities. It rained on the day we went, but we were still enjoying ourselves. We took a special farm car, along the way we saw cattle, sheep, deer and other animals, and also saw a lovely Alpaca called soft gold. Everyone was busy taking pictures of it and taking pictures with it. We also visited exotic orchards and tasted honey tea. Very good farm, beautiful natural scenery, and bungee jumping and other recreational projects.
Apart from the fact that tickets are expensive, the main highlights of the fun are farm tours and farm shows. Rainbow Spring Park has a package for farm show, but there are no farm tours. So I think it's not necessary to buy a package for farm tours and show. The fun of buying a package tour in Rainbow Spring Park is that feeding alpacas and alpaca are cute and scared because they are both lovely and scared. Don't worry about people sticking smelly suggestions on you. Wear dirty clothes and shoes. Well, you know, show is interesting. You can see that shearing wool and feeding lamb milk are finally free to take photos with all kinds of big sheep. Don't worry about not understanding. Oh, every seat has translation headphones. It's a great pleasure for children to go, but parents should pay attention to it. Don't let the children get so excited that the sheep and alpacas will get hurt.
Very interesting farms, there are shearing shows and tractor visits to the farm, wool shows about an hour, you can see many kinds, as well as ducks, geese, etc. When we visited the farm, we picked kiwifruit and tasted honey, which was delicious, sweet and not greasy. I also held the lamb. Places suitable for family play.
It's interesting. The whole journey is one hour. Tour the farm with tractors. Small animals include sheep, cattle, deer, alpacas, chickens and pigs. The Chinese explanatory is very vivid. Every stop will stop and get off, you can feed, touch lambs, alpacas. The fur is soft, thick and comfortable. You can also taste honey and olive water.
Grass mud mat is so cute! Alpaca is so lovely! Alpaca is so cute! Important things are to be repeated for 3 times. Chinese tour guides are probably trained in the New Oriental style of dubbing, which is very interesting. The proactive reception attitude of the beasts is impressive.
I like it very much. It's nice to ride a tractor on a big green lawn. There are herds of cattle and sheep, as well as unique alpacas and ostriches. Horses graze leisurely, wild boars have a nest, and pheasants lurch around. From time to time, you can get out of the car and touch sheep and alpacas at close range. You can also feed them in person. These animals are lovely.
New Zealand's most traditional farm featured performances can be seen at Egdon Farm. The performance hall is full of visitors to watch the show. Three wonderful farm shows are held every day. The host will demonstrate the shearing performance on the spot, and the humorous commentary will make people laugh. Lucky audiences will be invited to milk and compete in feeding lambs and goat milk, which will bring the whole performance to a climax.
This is New Zealand's Royal Farm, which is specially open to tourists. The Royal Farm is said to have been visited by the Queen of England. Of course, many other world leaders have left footprints here. The largest tourist farm in New Zealand, covering 350 acres (135 hectares), is actually privately owned and managed by two families. Together with two other mainland tourists, we started to visit Egdon Farm by farm "special plane" (tractor to take visitors to visit). When we entered the farm, we first saw that many kinds of cattle had already been waiting for us. They probably knew this kind of life well. The driver got out and fed them. During the course of eating the sample cattle, the tour guide introduced to us their different breeds and characteristics one by one. In order to ensure the safety of tourists, visitors are not allowed to get off at this stop. At the second stop, after the tour guide taught us how to feed the sheep, we got off to feed the sheep by ourselves and took pictures with them. Having long been accustomed to tourists coming, there will be goats to eat. When we see our "special plane" stop, they rush around from afar. In the process of feeding, we personally feel the harmony between human and animals, but also experience the loveliness of animals. Sheep is the largest animal husbandry species in New Zealand, followed by cattle and deer. We can also see the red deer in captivity on the hillside. The tractor carried us on to the third stop. Here is the famous Alpaca in New Zealand. This wool is a hollow animal with the reputation of "soft gold". It belongs to the camel family. Because it looks like an alpaca, it is also called an alpaca. Of course, it also has a name "grass mud horse" similar to the national curse. When we took the feed given by the guide in one hand and stroked the alpaca to eat with the other hand, we found that its wool was really soft and comfortable. The pastoral scenery of the farm can also be seen on this highland. It is especially attractive under the blue sky and white clouds. New Zealand has begun to give us a very good impression. Then we went down the hill to a large organic kiwifruit production base where we could only harvest fruit in autumn, and the turkey was the first time we saw its existence outside the zoo. Here we got off and tasted kiwifruit honey and fruit tea. Before saying goodbye to Eggerton Farm, we watched the performance of shepherd dogs managing sheep flocks with many European and American tourists. Although there were only three sheep, the "Elf's Eye" shepherd dog, who managed the sheep with his eyes, returned them to the sheepfold at his master's request.
