My husband and I went on this tour from the Noordam which made a stop in Akaroa. We were picked up in town with a van that held 8 people and driven a short distance to the farm. The scenery on the drive to the...More
Our family drove from Christchurch to Murray’s farm in Akaroa. We were given excellent directions, which came in handy. When we arrived at the Akaroa Farms woolshed we were greeted by Hannah and her adorable daughters. We went inside their lovely home which has a...More
Murray (and all three generations of the family we met) made this morning one of the high points of our trip to New Zealand. We had a great time and enjoyed both the history and farm insights. A must-do if you are in Arakoa.

This was an exceptional, not to be missed experience. Murray Johns is a passionate story teller who shared his family history along with the challenges of sheep farming and how diversification is key to sustaining this family owned business. His daughter in law Hannah shears...More
This will end up being one of our favorite memories on our month long trip, I’m sure. We visited Murray’s farm along with 40+ people off a cruise ship, where most of their guests seem to visit from. We arrived early and had a chance...More
