Farm Tours

To experience a slice of farm life you can book a one hour guided tour of the ASB Bank MAGS Farm. Tours can be tailor-made to suit your group’s requirements and areas of interest.

A typical farm tour aims at enabling visitors to have hands-on involvement. They can milk the cows, bottle feed lambs (in season) and experience a sheep shearing demonstration.

Tours are usually on Tuesdays or Fridays, or by arrangement through farm manager Mr Brett Harris. The school farm is used for student training as well as farm tours. It is therefore important that visitors plan their arrival so that they can start their tour at the arranged time.

The tour will normally proceed regardless of weather conditions as many animals can be housed indoors and various activities take place under cover. If in doubt, contact the Farm Manager.

Cost:

$5 per person (children and adults) with a maximum of 44 people (one bus load) per visit. Visits can be arranged in two-hour slots. An invoice will be posted to you after your visit.

Location:

40B Alberton Ave, Mt Albert. The farm is located at the end of the driveway, which is immediately next to the school’s main entrance. Parking is available for small vehicles at the farm, however the driveway is not suitable for buses. There is a bus bay on Alberton Ave at the front of the school.

If there are any particular requirements we can help you with to make your tour more meaningful, please let Mr Harris know when making your booking.

We look forward to welcoming your group to the farm.
