Wellington Travel Club-Day Tour-Farm Life & Fish-n-Chips
17 March 2020
We venture through the farm gates today at Palliser Ridge Farm, a sheep and beef property on the hills overlooking Palliser Bay.
We learn about the day to day operation of this Wairarapa property, enjoy a sheep shearing demonstration and a display from those clever and intuitive farm dogs. Over smoko in the wool shed, we share yarns with our hosts, and taste honey produced on the property - the bees share the same forage as the stock, producing clover and Manuka blend honey.
Lunch today is the famous fish n chips at the Ferry. The Lake Ferry Pub on the wild Wairarapa coast is the perfect spot to enjoy this old-fashioned favourite. A wander in Martinborough tops off our day.
