Event Description

We are a 312 hectare deer/cattle/sheep farm located in Kaiwera, 24 kms east of Gore. We have been farming here for 20 years. Our family consists of Hayden and Julie Byars along with our 3 children, Olivia - 10 years, Heidi - 8 years and Preston - 6 years. We have a range of other animals on the farm including 100 hens that we have our own egg label for, and deliver and sell directly to customers.

When you come to our farm, you will see the deer yards and we will show you how we work with them, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will also have a chance to feed our pet sheep and see the alpacas. Collecting the eggs will also be a fun activity along with some egg artwork for children. Along the way you will see our other many animals including ducks, turkeys, horses, birds and possibly the peacocks if they aren't hiding!! Following this will be some freshly baked scones and taste testing of homegrown venison at the end of the tour.
