Agrodome is 350 acre New Zealand working farm located just 10 minutes from Rotorua city centre.
Most visitors come to see their one hour Farm Show, which includes an introduction to 19 breeds of sheep and their Border Collie sheep dogs, a live sheep shearing demonstration, and mock sheep auction with bids from willing and not so willing participants from the audience.
Some members of the audience are invited on stage to hand milk a cow and feed baby lambs from a bottle.
They do three shows per day at 9.30 am, 11.00 am, and 2 pm.
Following the sheep show there is a free live dog trial in the sheep herding pen outdoors.
It pays to arrive before the Farm Show and check out the Farmyard Nursery, which offers guests the opportunity to pat small farm animals.
They also offer one hour tours of the farm, which depart at 10.40 am, 12.10 pm, 1.30 pm and 3.40 pm. On the tour visitors will see alpacas, cattle, deer, llamas, ostrich, pigs, and sheep. The tour also visits the fruit orchards and olive grove. There is the opportunity to taste kiwifruit juice, kiwifruit wine and honey.
There is also a shearing museum and gift shop with a 1906 Platt wool-carding machine. Ask staff when they do demonstrations. The gift shops sells a variety of sheepskin and wool products, leather goods, natural skin products and New Zealand souvenirs.
