Kia Ora Mini Farm

Kia Ora is a spacious open farm and offers plenty of room for group tours and we have ample tractors, karts and diggers for everyone. Our indoor and outdoor pet areas offer a large variety of animals that children get to hold and feed from the usual farmyard variety to some more exotic such as llamas, emus, alpacas, pot bellied pigs, etc.

Kia Ora Open Farm is a safe place for children to roam and learn about the animals and for adults to relax. We have an onsite coffee shop with mouth watering homebaking but picnics are also welcome and we have ample outdoor seating for those fine summer days. Adults on their own and of course couples are also welcome at the farm and we find that many couples find it a romantic change from the normal date especially if they love animals as much as we do at Kia Ora Open Farm.
