Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fun experience. Sat in the front where there were no translation headphones and found it beneficial. Even got to feed baby lambs since there were no children willing to take part in a little on stage game. The show was very educational and the tram around the farm to feed the sheep, alpaca, and deer was fun. Fascinating to watch the sheep dog trials. And VERY excited that the Kiwi Hatchery is now there (though a separate entrance fee and ticket availability.)

We had a great time - the show was especially good.

There was even a baby llama born on the day we visited!!

And we fed deer, sheep and alpacas.

Great fun.

A great visit for those that have not been near a farm before and informative for those that have. Chance to feed the animals was enjoyed by most.
Only down side was paying too much by booking through Trip Advisor. Should have booked direct.

Had a great time here. The show was entertaining and showed 18 different kinds of sheep. The tractor pull farm tour was awesome surprise and even got to hand fead some of the animals. Well worth a visit.

Great demonstrations with both the sheep, dogs, cow and the tractor ride feeding the animals with different information shared about what we were experiencing.
The only problem was that we didn’t understand the tractor ride was shortly after the sheep show. So we had to wait for an hour to take advantage. All your staff had great smiles and eye contact. Happy all round people makes a difference.

Agrodome was great and our American friend loved it, but not impressed with Trip Advisor. I accidentally booked through TripAdvisor and tried to cancel straight away but never heard back from them. I’m a New Zealander and only live 1 hour away from Agrodome so wasn’t planning on paying in US dollars and it cost me $40 more than if I had booked through Agrodome direct.

The visit was awesome, kids loved feeding the animals, and the show was well organized. However, the ticket purchased from Tripadvisor was way too expensive than buying at the counter.

We love Agrodome Farm! Our favorite part is feeding and playing with the sheep and llamas. The ride on the tractor is a one-of-a-kind experience, too. We also dropped by the kiwi plantation and got to taste some honey. The farm show is one of the biggest and best in New Zealand. Imagine seeing 19 breeds of sheep on one stage. And best of all, the audience get to participate in the show. You'll get a chance to milk a cow and bottle-feed a lamb on stage. There's also live sheep shearing and pretend auction. It was fun. Both kids and adults enjoyed it!

We had been to Agrodome about 17 years ago and very happy to be back. We did the sheep show and the farm tour - booked with Viator and used cashback offer so worth looking around if you use cashback sites.

The show was great and very entertaining. The farm tour was fun and included sheep and alpaca feeding.

Well worth a visit!

We came by to do both the farm show and the farm tour. Both have scheduled times and generally alternate. We came by without booking and managed to make it when a farm show was about to start.
The show was interesting and quite informative. There were headphones for translation of the show into multiple languages. It was fun but more for those that went up and those that didn't. You are able to head up the stage to get a closer look at the animals at the end. We managed to sneak in a sheep dog show between the show and the tour.
The tour was quite nice. You hop in an open tram like vehicle and get to sit while you drive around the farm area. The best part was that you are able to feed many of the animals there. There was also a stop to taste their honey.
Both were interesting and unique experiences but if you had to go for one, I would recommend the tour.
They have plenty of parking on site but it is a bit of a walk to the main area. They also have a cafe as well as a souvenir store.
