Join a No.8 Farm Tour to experience the rural life of New Zealand.  We provide options for full, half day and 2.5hr trips. We visit real working farms, offering an insight into the lives of New Zealand farming families.  Climb aboard one of our 4WD vehicles from Tauranga or Rotorua for fun, informative tours of a variety of farms including sheep, deer and dairy.

On a No. 8 farm tour you’ll learn something of the history of New Zealand farming, its challenges and the innovations that have taken place in developing New Zealand’s largest export industry. 

You might even pick up a bit of ‘cocky’ terminology, the peculiar vocabulary shared by those who work the land, and to help you out we’ve included a short glossary of words and phrases you might hear.  Find out about the ‘number 8 wire’ philosophy synonymous with Kiwis and deeply ingrained within the New Zealand farming culture.

We also cater for cruise ship shore excursions, special interest groups, corporate team building, corporate hosting and school groups.

No.8 Kiwi Speak

Number 8 wire:
8-gauge (4mm) galvanized fencing wire. Because it is easy to bend, it is popular with farmers as an all-purpose ‘fix-it’ product. It can be fashioned, they say, to perform innumerable tasks and repair almost anything.
